Had bad day today-went visiting friends,and Jc decided to slam dunk head first into her door.
He had a huge line down his head,which as I comforted him got steadily bigger and bigger. Not good.
My friend was hysterical,as she'd put cushions everywhere to stop them falling on fireplace(her kids are all over 7 and fire guard went a year ago) and Jc slipped on the said cushion and crashed into door.
Was ok literally straight after-wanted his pud,but his head looks bad,goes well with his tough guy image My mate has phoned like 5 times,bless her. Jc is fine,had a nap,ate his tea had calpol for bed and went up to bed fine. He does like to scare me!

It always looks worse than it is.Hope it's not too massive a bruise.Erin used to charge about like amad thing,always missed the doorway,gotthe frame.Alwayshad a bruiseor two.
Matilda woke me up at 7,falling out the cot.The bruise looked worse this morning,it's gone now.
Hope his head's better soon

Thanks Lau,yeah was concerned bout her!!! She has finally accepted it wasn't her fault,after hours!!!! Bless her tho she'd spent ages attempting to child proof the lounge,and that happens!!!
I just don't like how it looks,all proper parents know accidents happen,it's th efunny looks I'll get off others I'm not looking forward to. Think it's going to be huge by morning.

You wont believe it-today he's only dived out of the cotbed head first-right on the part of his skull he attempted to fracture yesterday
OMG What is he trying to do to himself???? I will be grey by teatime-the boy is a nutter with no fear I swear. Tom was in a bed at this age,I'm thinking of converting Jc's into a bed tonight as he wouldn't have as far to fall then-but doubt he could be trusted in a bed???? What do you guys think??
Or is Borstal the answer?

Can you trust him in a bed?What about a spare duvet/pillows on the floor.At least theside will stop him rolling out.
Erin slept with reins on for months.Not tight,just attached one side on a short lead.At least I knew she was safe

Thought about that but I'm sure tom works secretly for amnesity-he's always telling me what's fair!!!! Anyway,bit the bullet,converted it,after a long Thomas story which Jc hung over the bed guards(purchased swiftly at half 6 tonight) to look at the pictures,we had bout ten mins of giggling(which I have to admit I like) then silence. Crept up,Jc flat out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Duvet is placed aswell,and pillows one side,so fingers crossed he's still in it in the morning,and not in with Tom,or snuggled on the duvet on the floor!!!!

aww bless him,
Hope the night goes well!
Jack took to sleeping on the floor for a few nights, left him too it he soon decided the bed was better.
Hope your not grey and jcs not black blue and purple!

ACCIDENT UPDATE; today he has tripped and bitten his lower lip,adding a nice mark,then smacked his head on floor in temper cos he tripped and got gravel embedded in his forehead.
COULD HE DO ANYTHING ELSE???????????????????
Night went well tho,tonight different story,he has being shouting Tom for an hour as he had the cheek to fall asleep! Is finally asleep,but have a sneaking suspition this is gonna be a long night

Poor Jc,making a bit of a mess of himself.Toddlers do these things,Iswear it's just to try us.
Matilda pulled Arwen's highchair on herself a fewmonths ago,gave herself afat lip,she actually tore that bit that goes from between your teeth to your lip.Last month she pulled herself up on the tumble drier door,it swung open,flinging her into her highchair this time,giving her areally pretty blackeye.
You just don't want to take them out looking like that.You always get some one has to ask,but a toddler just does these things to them selves

He has had another scrape this week,sunday morning,woke up to a loud thud and crying......... He had gone to lie down,misjudged headboard and cracked his head on pine headboard.
Cue casualty,one glued eyelid later.......... He looks like he's done 10 rounds with tyson. Headboard is the cot bed converted to bed,so it isn't too high,he's just a devil! His eye looks bad tho,he isn't bothered,think he only cried because it spoilt his snuggling down!
I swear that boy is out to scare me!!!!!

i feel like that with lola!
she keeps crawling into the kitchen (nice hard floor) and standing up in the middle then clapping! cute but scary!

Aren't tiles,hard floors best for cleaning etc...then you have children and want to soft carpet EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god does he scare me,I can imagine Lola the very same
Jc always wants to run down the path to the car now-with me following,sweating,hyperventilating behind him. Altho,have sneaky suspicion concrete would come off worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!
