The Big Bump
Tonight I came home from work, parked my car and walked a couple hundred feet over to my in-laws' house to pick up my Little P, who is normally running around outside and playing with and picking up everything in sight. Today he was doing this, only with a big, fat knot on his head!!! I cringed when I walked up the driveway and took my squirming little man in my arms only to find he was growing another head out of his forehead. OK, maybe it wasn't that big, but it has been three hours and it is still a really giant lump.
Apparently baby P was wandering around the house and decided to trip right next to the piano and smash his skull on the piano chair. The kid couldn't trip right in the middle of the floor where there were no sharp objects, oh no, that's too safe. Always next to something sharp or hard. This worries mommy more than anything! I am so afraid he is going to get brain damage or crack his head open, or something. I know that this happens to little kids all the time, but I just hate it; if anything is going to kill me early it is going to be stress caused by worrying about my son's head. I am not an advocate of those funky baby helmets, but tonight I am considering one...
