OUCH!!!

It had to happen sooner or later. This is just a fact. Somehow this knowledge did little comfort as Tate took her first TUMBLE out of her stroller onto the blacktop of the parking lot. I could hear her hit the blacktop. Oh boy did she cry AND HARD. On the outside I was all momma-like. Comforting and reassuring. In the inside my heart was breaking. After an hour or so I saw her HUGE goose bump and skinned forehead. This was when my cool momma-like exterior cracked and I cried.

FIRST BOO BOO

To Tate, her booboo has been forgotten. To me, I feel pain when I see the huge goose bump on her beautiful sweet face.

Yikes, that looks like it was painful! Cute video, too. It looks like it's time to lower the crib mattress so the railing is up to Tate's armpits or she might do another tumble.

Ooh... ouch! Glad she's healing up and forgetting all. Now if only Momma could...

That is quite a bump! Ouch! Briana is a mover and a shaker, so we have had our fair share of bumps and bruises in this house. I always feel so bad when it happens. Don't you wish you could wrap them up in bubble wrap? LOL!

Love her smile!

She is so pretty..boo boo and all.
I am leaving this as a anonymous comment as I do not want you to take this the wrong way but you really need to lower her crib or she will be over the railing and on her head.

Yeah, ouch! I never understood the phrase "this hurts me more than it hurts you" but as a mom, it fits! She is still cute:)

Wow! That is a good bump! Poor girl! At least she slept well on the way home ;0)

She's a sweetheart. And yes, I'm echoing what the others are saying about lowering the crib mattress as soon as possible for her safety.

Yikes! That's a goose egg. Luckily it's not right before picture time...that's when I always got them.

Sorry about her little goose egg - she's so cute, even with her boo-boo!

That Tate always brings such a smile to my face! She is such a cutie!! I hope her poor booboo is getting better! Sophie just had one of those on her forehead last week!! Somehow a chair fell on her when she was underneath it....guess you will have many more booboos to kiss in the years ahead!

Hope you both have a great week!

I just wanted to say that I did the smart thing one time and let Sunny stand up in the shopping cart at Walmart, well she went right over the front on top of her head and it was horrible!! I DID cry...the sound was terrible! I feel your pain.
