My longtime friend, Mundanemomma, told me once my son started walking, he would be bruised and scratched for quite some time.
She was right.
My son was a late walker; only within the last few weeks would I say he is walking – and falling.
I picked him up from daycare last week with a giant bruise on his cheek. He had slipped on a toy and hit the toy box.
On Saturday, he bumped his head on the table and there is a small bruise there. On Sunday, the other side of his head was bruised and scratched, with a few scratches on his nose, when he fell and hit the pavement on the neighbour’s driveway.
This morning I noticed he has a bruise on his chin, a bug bite above the scratches on his forehead and other bite on his eye.
