  • NOPE!! My dd just turned two yesterday and she has been doing this since she can walk. Good news, though, no broken bones yet! But she does run herself into a fair amount of things...and I have to be sure she doesn't run OFF of anything (like a curb or stair landing).

  • She won't break a bone. Or at least none of mine have! lol It's ok, it just a phase, they keep doing it since it's something new. And she can get a reaction out of you.

  • Mine started throwing her little blankie over her head and walking around. I tried to get her to stop ("No, no, that's not safe" usually works) but I guess it was too fun. After she crashed and burned when I wasn't looking, she stopped on her own. Sometimes, you just have to let them learn the hard way.
