Some days I feel as if I’m on a roller coaster, or perhaps a merry-go-round, or maybe both at once.
Today was a very good day – mostly. It started that way, stayed that way for a good deal of the day, had a few fits in the afternoon…and then my six-year-old took a nose dive into Grandpa’s chair. Sigh.
I know it happens – I mean he IS six years old. I’m really just grateful he hasn’t broken anything. The thing is, this boy is caution personified. It is really fairly startling when he does something like this – and it scared him pretty badly. He IS fine – a puffy lip, a bloody nose, and a nasty bruise. In addition, his spirits were back where they should be by bed-time. Still, as a mom, you really want to make things right, and calm your child when they are that upset – and I didn’t seem to do my job very well today. Sigh.
