Just wanted to share that we’re living by our mantra here at LINBW! We take a walk nearly every day and if it’s not raining (which, darnit, it has been a LOT recently), a couple of times a day. Keeley and I often just go outside and she just, well, does her thing. She runs towards the mud, she picks up rocks, she says ‘ohhh’ a lot, and looks like a walking advertisement for child abuse. By that I mean she has bruised knees, scrapes down her legs, etc. I’m determined to let her fall down until she doesn’t, if that makes any sense. When we’re trying to get a move on, she does get to ride in the wagon, but she has conquered the whole driveway (uphill) by her own 2 little feet, which is quite an accomplishment!
A couple of weeks ago, she was walking down the driveway and went more sideways than anything. She was mostly concerned about having ‘that much’ dust on her, I think. I dusted her off, put her back on her feet and we went to the house to get a rag to clean her hands. It wasn’t until I looked at her properly that I realized she had bloodied her nose. So, like any good mom, I got a camera along with the rag and took a picture before cleaning her up. Life is not bubble wrapped, and she’s living proof. I’ll let the picture say the rest.
Aww, poor baby.
I’m snickering that you got the camera out.
