She got in a fight. And lost.


In my Mommy and Me Monday this week, I told you I’d let you know about #2’s incident.

You see, she got in a fight at the playground.

And she lost. 



I’m pretty sure she left a bit of her face behind that day.

That rubber stuff they put on the surface of the playground apparently holds sand really well.  So, not only did her face scoot along the rubber, but it also rubbed across the sand.  Basically, my baby has road rash on a quarter of her face.

The good thing is, she’s a trooper.  She cried for less than a minute, and then she went right back to playing.  And, she hasn’t been bothered since.

The bad thing is today is her 18 month birthday and we will always have that little reminder of her first “fight.”

In all seriousness, she’s really doing quite well with it, and it is healing very nicely.

Head over to Angie’s place to see more Wordful Wednesdays.  Because, I’m not the only one that can’t keep my mouth shut!
