Brayden loves to dance... especially to the "work your body" song on Sid the Science kid.Today.... he was jumping and dancing on the couch. I heard a large BASH and I knew he hit the back of the couch...I hugged him, and he cried. Then i felt something on my arm.
I never thought I'd hope for boogers as much as i did in that moment.I looked.
I couldn't tell if the blood was coming from his mouth, nose, or both. I rushed him to the kitchen (better light) and cleaned up the blood so I could see where it was coming from. No cuts were visible, but his nose was swollen. The bleeding stopped very quickly.I tried to put ice on his nose and he refused. "No mama. Cold. Better. All done!"
Then he looked at the bloody paper towels with confusion. I quickly explained blood. He seemed interested so we looked at the veins in our wrists and felt our heartbeats.He then said "sorry self" and went back to play
Life of a mom.... i seem more upset than he did lol!
