Oscar is full on toddling everywhere these days. One of my favorite things to do is watch him explore. Often times he will trip, lose his balance and fall down. I try not to react too much when it’s just a little tumble, but I am always free with the kisses. It’s to the point now that when he falls down, he will get up and come over to me for a kiss! Sometimes he just needs the comfort, and I am not complaining!
Yesterday, I fell down. And hard. Oscar was having a snack in his high chair so I took the opportunity to take some trash to the outside can. As I came in, I must not have wiped my feet because as soon as my shoe hit the floor it went flying out from under me! I banged my arm into the door on my way to being laid out with a THUD!
As I did a mental check to be sure nothing was broken, I was quickly remembering that Oscar was watching it all go down and I wanted to make sure I didn’t freak him out. When I got up and looked at him he was watching me very intensely. I walked over to him to let him know that mommy was OK and he leaned in and gave me a kiss. Yep, all better!
