Too many boo-boos

These days, keeping Ladybug’s clothes clean isn’t the only challenge. So is keeping her pain-free.

She currently has four teeth coming in – soreness that she tries to chew away on every plastic toy, metal spoon and soft dish towel she can get her hands on.

Then there are the pinched fingers as she attempts to close her nursery door.

A few days ago, it was a bloody nose. She was playing with her dollhouse when all of a sudden she started crying. A small gash ran across the bridge of her nose and droplets of blood fell from her nostrils onto her lip. I still haven’t figured out how that happened.

And then yesterday there was the rug burn down the side of her face as she toppled from the boogie board I was dragging across the lawn and rolled a few times.

She’s a trooper, though. After a few whimpers soothed by hugs, Ladybug will get up and dart off again, often to resume the same activity. Meanwhile, my husband and I stand by, ready to jump in with kisses as needed.
