Seeing Red

Jeeper tripped on the floor yesterday (admit it, you've done that before too), fell right on his face and got a bloody nose. I was in the shower so his daddy did the comforting and clean up. Fortunately he was fine a few moments later but I was a little traumatized since this was his first truly bloody "ouch." I imagine there will be more in the future since he's an active and energetic little boy. However, first bloodshed feels like some kind of mothering milestone.

Gracie's first black eye (yes, there have been others) totally freaked me out. She cried for maybe 2 minutes, took a few kisses and was fine. It took at least two hours for my heart beat to go back to normal and my hands to stop shaking.
