So my 5 year old ds and i went the park with my friend and her two kids today. just as we were getting ready to go my ds slipped on those curved jungle gym bars and hit the back of his head. he was crying and bleeding... we got it to stop bleeding and the cuts not too bad, and he had no signs of a concussion, i just keep feeling like a terrible failure as a mom like i should have more or could have done sonething to prevent it.

It's am accident! Kids are prone to have them. My oldests first ER trip was because he weaseled himself out of the buckle in the shopping cart and fell out. He was 10 months old. He did it again at 14 months. Needless to say he didn't ride in shopping carts after that. LOL

He will be fine.  Just keep an eye in case of concussion.  An ice pack usually will fix head owies.

You can't wrap them in bubble wrap.  Kids play hard and get hurt, it's part of the territory.  All you can do is clean them up, give them a kiss, and send them on their way.

Exactly! Trust me, this won't be the first time he gets hurt.

 Don't feel guilty- kids have accidents and get hurt. It's part of growing up. As much as some moms would like to, we can't wrap our kids in buble-wrap and protect them from every bump, scrape, and bruise.

Don't feel bad, it happens. My ds climbed out of the bathtub at a little over 2 and slipped and cut his eyelid open and had to have it glued back together.

Things like that happen. I am glad it wasn't serious
