Sarah is extremely active, and sometimes not for her own good. While I joke that she is accident prone just like me it's likely because she is still becoming familiar with her feet and legs and ability to get around much faster as she grows.
Recently, on her first two days of her new class this week at school Sarah first fell off a chair during lunch and banged her lip. The reason was because the chairs she is now sitting in for meals don't have straps as she is used to and; therefore, will likely be going through an adjustment period for a little while until these become more familiar to her.
And the accidents continued today. Just five minutes before I arrived to pick up Sarah at school it turns out that she walked into a wall and banged her head. It is nuts. I know that kids are getting acclimated to their new bodies but this is ridiculous. I am starting to think that Sarah either needs to travel in a bubble or wear a helmet and elbow/knee pads.
I just have to hope that tomorrow she makes it through the day without a bump or scrape or bang on the head but know that there is always the likelihood. Kids will be kids, right?
I have to remember back to when I was a growing tot and the many, many times I fell, bumped into things or got too overly excited playing on an outdoor apparatus. We just need to stock our first aid kit with loads of band aids and boo boo buddies. It's going to be a long haul while Sarah gets used to her growing form and the excitability to do it all. Oh, like mother like daughter.
