Oh it was a day today... I took tons of pictures this morning between Petey having a cute new hairstyle and the kids having a blast in the front row at kid's club but those will have to come another time because my little girly needs her own blog post tonight. Isn't she beautiful? I took this picture right before we left for the mall. She looked beautiful in her fancy-ish new hair-do and I wanted to document it. Isn't her forehead just perfect? I only ask that to bring on the next photo...This is my daughter after running into the corner of a wall after getting off the carousel. And yes, she really was running. One of her little friends was chasing her and she turned around to look at him and hit the corner of the wall. At first, I didnt realize her forehead was so huge but a nice mom pointed it out to me and I immediately started "freak out" mode. The carousel worker wanted to call the paramedics, which I refused, and I called my dad and brought her over to him.
Luckily, he said she would be fine as long as she didn't have any concussion symptoms (which she hasn't) so she is just left with a huge goose egg. Also luckily, her goose egg has gone down in size and isn't protruding a half inch off of her face anymore. I took this last picture tonight at dinner. Notice the red line in the middle of the bruise? Her forehead was seriously close to splitting open and I am thanking my lucky stars that it didn't! We really dodged a bullet there because she would've needed stitches.
All in all, this little girl is a fighter. Yes, she cried a lot at first but she has been a good sport the rest of the day and hasn't complained much. I'm sure she had a huge headache but with the help of Motrin, we've got her happy and running around again.
Also, have I mentioned how grateful I am to have a pediatrician dad? Because whenever I'm freaking out about something that's happened to my kids, he always brings me back to reality and lets me know that they will be ok! I guess I'm just a worrier. :)
