Summer + Toddler =

Summertime with that 2 year old of mine is mostly a beautiful thing.

We explore sidewalk cracks and go for long (in time, not distance) walks through the swamp. We play at the park and soak in the sun. We blow bubbles and color "right on the ground!!!". It's all very magical.

Until someone gets hurt.

Poor boy fell one day and got a tiny bit of road rash. Then he fell again the next day and opened it up like this. Then it started to scab - and he fell again at church. It's just now starting to heal, but that itches and he likes to show me at least 10 times a day.

I gave him some "medicine" (a fruit snack) and sprayed some magic on it (water) and gave him a cool washcloth. But oddly enough it still hurt. I hate it that he's old enough to be real-hurt.
