  • Mine always comes to me....she says BOO BOO!!!!! And brings me her Boo Boo to kiss it. If I ever get hurt or bump into something, she always manages to hear me from the next room. She comes running in saying "BOO BOO? BOO BOO?" Then she has to kiss my boo boo. She's so sweet!

  • That depends on how bad it is, and my reaction. If he falls ill glance and make sure it wasnt major but try not to pay too much attention because thts when he gets the most dramatic. If i just say uh oh get up and keep it movin he'll laugh say uh oh and get up and go play. but if its bad and he runs to me or i make it to him first i will definitely coddle him until he feels better. Those episodes seem to be more when hes sleepy though!!!

  • I usually start by telling her that she is fine, & to dust it off. If she is still upset, then I will cuddle her. But I try to see if she can handle it by herself first.

  • Depends on what went down that brought the crying on
