Scraped Knees and Owies

Do you remember scraping your knees over and over as a kid? I remember how it stung. I remember mom always making it better and then running back out and doing it again!

Yesterday, as we were enjoying the good weather, I realized that scraped knees and owies must be a sign of summer's time to stock-up on bandaids and those magic kisses that make everything all better.

Maya fell and hit her head in the middle of her forhead. As she was running over to me crying she fell again and this time I heard the crack as her head connected with the sidewalk! Ouch! One of the bigger goose-eggs I've seen.

Some ice, kisses and a nap and it's all forgotten!

I think watching knees get scraped and kids fall is more painful for me than them sometimes! That awful sinking feeling as you watch what you know is going to turn into an owie. I have to look away as they run haphazard down the sidewalk or they'll miss out on the carefree moments of not knowing that they're about to hit the ground. I'm just glad that I'm the one with the magic kiss power now!

Ouch! That's quite the bump! You know, Tyler just biffed it the other day on his FIRST day in shorts this year. I think I need more bandaids, too.

Maya sure looks happy for how painful that owie looks! She is just too adorable.
