I Wasn't There
It was the first time he's had any kind of accident when I wasn't there to comfort him. He came home and looked at himself in the mirror, but didn't say much about it. I was waiting. Then, a few minutes ago, I went in his room because he was supposed to be taking a nap, and I found him crying. I held him and rocked him as he let it all out. "I fell down," he said; "I hurt myself." "I know, baby. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry mommy wasn't there to hold you."
All a part of growing up, but hard for both of us...
The picture doesn't really do justice to how bad it looks in person, but he will be okay.
