What started out as a fantastic day at Grandma’s didnt end quite nicely. Poor Brandon has so much fun at Grandmas today…as he normally does, didnt see it coming at all.
As we were walking downhill of the driveway, it is rather steep going done, he missed a step and went face first into the cement driveway with a thud! ( Poor thing didnt know what hit it I reckon but there are scratches and a big bump on his forehead! O how he cried coz he had to let the neighbourhood know about it but it was nothing a piece of plastic couldnt fix, you see? Once the dummy was in and the car got moving, he promptly fell asleep.
While he was quite happy to be asleep, we were concerned if he has a concussion or something coz you just never know with kids but praise the Lord he was his happy self after his nap. And I think has totally forgotten about the whole thing.
I honestly have to say that this is the first time such a thing has happened to us. Nothing remotely close to this has happened with the girls. It makes me wonder if this is just a boy thing – prone to falling all over the place and getting bruises as part and parcel of growing up. *sigh* Ted was asking him today as they were watching NRL if he wanted to play it when he grew up. Lemme tell you, while I love this sport, I dont know if I can take watching him get hurt as this game is the raw deal! Getting hurt is almost a sure thing…and if I couldn’t handle this small injury, I wont be able to survive the knocks you get with NRL, no way!!! So Brandon, I’m afraid you’ll just have to pick up golf up but you stay away from Tiger Woods ok?
