and the hits just keep on coming

After Malia's rough day yesterday on (or off) her bike, I said that I hoped today would be a better day when it came to wheelin' around the neighborhood...maybe I should've been more vague and stated that I hoped today would be a better day -- period.

For no sooner had we arrived at a local church for a Mom's & Tot's playgroup morning, when Malia tripped over her own feet and came crashing to the ground. What made it worse was that we were just in the process of taking off her jacket, so her hands weren't even free to break her fall. So...she fell flat.on.her.face. Shudder -- it was an awful sound when her mouth hit the floor.

She bled and cried and bled and cried some more and in no time she had produced a rather fat lip. Thankfully it wasn't too long until she was ready to run around and have a good time -- and what a trooper...she's still smiling, even with Mom's camera in her face once again!

Here's hoping tomorrow will be a better day -- period!

Oh how awful! There is nothing worse than the sound of your child's face hitting the ground . . . seriously! The melon makes such an awful sound when it gets whacked!

Glad she's OK and that all the teeth are still in place!

Poor thing! GLad she is okay.

Oh no! She is starting to sound very much like Jessica ~ strong willed and accident prone. I hope too that tomorrow is a very uneventful day for you.

Oh Poor Malia! That must have hurt so bad. I think it hurts mom just as much in a different way dosen't it?

Oh Malia! We're so sorry to hear about your mishaps. You are a strong and brave girl and we hope that the rest of the week can go injury free.

Kind of reminds me of Kezia and all her bumps and bruises and scrapes. yikes!

Let me throw in an A-MEN.

(Poor thing).

Poor little thing!

Good thing they recover much quicker than we do though. I'd be in bed for a week if I fell flat on my face. (partially due to humiliation of course.)
