  • Anywhere between 5 and 15 on each leg. They just mysteriously appear and disappear. Sometimes I wonder if people think I'm beating her or something, she's so bruised some days. She's a monkey that climbs EVERYTHING, including using the sliding closet doors as a back brace to climb up to the shelf in her closet that 's about 6 feet off the ground.

  • I know he has 7 on his left leg because he was counting them this morning before school. I am pretty sure there are more on his right leg since that is his dominant leg and he tends to run into stuff leading with it. Can't give you and exact number though. I swear the kid runs into everything!!

  • I have no idea, because I don't see my son every day... but I can tell you that the poor kid bruises as easily as I do! AND he's clumsy like me too, so I can only imagine he's probably got a fair few.
    Hell, I've got about 5 myself, and I have no idea what from! Ha ha

  • My sons legs (basically the shins) are covered in bruises.  Some of them are running together but there are only about 5 a piece.  Well, maybe 6 on his right leg.  I have no idea how he gets so many or even WHERE they come from but he always has fresh ones, lol.

  • Gosh, I don't even count anymore. I have no idea where they come from & they never seem to bother her so....I don't even give them a second thought. (They're all small and not alarming of course).

  • So my son has 5 total between both lets lol. But that isn't the thing with him. He falls and trips mainly on his own two feet more often that banging his knees up and he seems to bang his head more. I swear he gonna know himself out one of these days.

  • lol. glad I'm not the only one. Right now we're in long pants weather with limited playground time due to snow. The snow definitely cushions the falls. Once the warm weather returns, he'll spend the time with endless bruises and scrapes! Usually too many to count.
