Her first mouth injury on a toddler :) Twin A tried slipping out of the chairs I bought them, to walk around, and I didnt catch him in time. It's a toddler chair so it was not a far drop lol but it still made him fall. Well he only cried for about 30 seconds but a couple minutes later I noticed something smeared on his face and hands. Upon closer examination I discovered his gum was bleeding. I wrapped him in a blanket, to keep him from wiggling away or hurting one of us, and put a cold wet washcloth on his gum until I could see clearly. He tore the skin that attaches his lip to his gum. :( so I called my mom to see if it was a big deal, mom of 3 boys and 2 girls over there, and she said no. If he acts fussy and keeps touching it give him tylenol and feed him liquids for the rest of the night. I didn't freak out, no emergency room visit. :) the only thing bad is I texted my husband...I'm sure I stressed him out lol, sorry babe....... <3

Well at least it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Glad he is ok.

My 3 yr old knocked his brother down when he was 9 months and it caused the skin to rip like that... it was scary looking. Good for u for staying calm. I freaked out.

 When my little boy was 1 he was running down our driveway and had no concept of *slowing down* he just stopped running lol. Fell face first! Knocked his front tooth out :) So my beautiful child will have a toothless grin until he is about 7. He is almost 4 now and it fits him perfectly, I think he will look strange with all this teeth because I havent really ever seen him with all his teeth other than those first few months when it came it.

Him knocking his tooth out so young was just a sign of things to come! I am HONESTLY surprised nothing has been in a cast yet :) **fingers crossed**
