Accident Prone

Anyone else have one that always looks like they've done 20 rounds with Joe Bugner?

DD2 is ALWAYS falling over, ALWAYS running into doors, falling down steps, tripping up etc...

She's not clumsy or in the autistic spectrum, she just runs everywhere at 1000 miles an hour and doesn't look where she's going!

Tonight she was playing with a little girl from around the corner. Well DD2 ran out of the front door, tripped over the sill and landed on her face. One egg on the forehead, one bleeding nose, one burst and swollen lip and a swollen nose with a graze to the tip. I picked her up and brought her in but she wouldn't sit on my knee, wouldn't let me wipe her face and shouted "No! I want to play out!!!"

She stopped crying instantly and went off to play in the garden. DH had to force her to let me wipe her face and as I had my camera at hand I took a picture.... NOTE: The reason she's crying is NOT because she'd just sustained an injury to her face, it was because she wanted to play on the swing and NOT have me wipe her face..... I pretty much always have my camera to hand as some of you know.... apologies if some of you find the pic upsetting... it's just life ;)



A month ago... after running through the door before it was fully open...



At the moment she also has a black bruise to her left cheek. Does anyone else have a child that looks SO battered and bruised??? It's constant bruises to the flippin face!!!!! :rolleyes:

Bells, its because her limbs are growing fast so her hands and feet stick out half an inch further than where she thinks they do! Also because her head is full of interesting things like mud and building dens (and Ted and his axe) and not boring stuff like 'I must be careful'. She's tough as old boots.

She's just slipped on the kitchen floor and landed on her bum :rolleyes: ANOTHER bruise!!!!!!

The day before we went to Wales last month she threw herself down the stairs and landed on her hand. DH and I exchanged glances as we looked at her thumb which was purple, floppy and at a funny angle. He grabbed his keys, I grabbed my bag, we were going to hospital. We didn't panic, just resignation that this time it was a 'proper injury'. Then when we had a closer look we decided that it was neither broken nor dislocated, she could move it comfortably and so the hospital visit has been postponed.... until the next injury.

Such is life :D

Aww poor little mite, bless her. I have to say that DS is just the same, he is starting to calm down a lot now but at a similar age to your DD he was also a little whirlwind, always bumping into everything (think Tazmainian Devil!! :rolleyes: ).

Me - PCOS
DH - Poor Motility & Morphology........
ICSI 2001 - DS / 2009 - DD - Our family is now complete :) :)

I can't see her being one of those girly girls that screams when she breaks a nail or panics at a stain on her skirt somehow!!! :D

No..... 'girly' doesn't really describe her :D I bought her some pink flowery plimsoles from Next on Friday. I put them on her at 3.25pm and by 3.40 she had run through a patch of bright orange mud then fallen down a grass bank in them and they were FILTHY. People wonder why she usually wears wellies :D

That said, she has gone out today with a pink dress and white sandles.... to compliment her bruised head, bruised cheek, grazed nose, burst lip and broken tooth .... let's not discount the bruises and grazes up her shins :D

and just general toddler bumping into things and running around - he got the hang of this walking lark a bit bloomin quickly..... :rolleyes:

Oh Bells, shame about the plimsolls! :rolleyes: I'd rather have a tomboy who is scabby and muddy than a girl who minces around afraid to put a hair out of place. She'll work out how tall her legs are one day and how to balance when running at full tilt! 8)

DS2 now practises crawling at full speed. He'll set off in top gear screeching away with delight and then yesterday, the noise and the movement came to an abrupt halt as he did a massive face-plant onto the bathroom floor (no carpet, of course)! Teeth met lip which swelled up by the time I picked him up. :rolleyes: I'm wondering if his knees/mouth/teeth/forehead/fingers are destined for the same decoration as DD2's in the years to come! :P
Had a total of three fresh IVF cycles and three frozen transfers (embryos and blastocysts)
m/c @ 11 weeks in 2007 DS1 and DS2 born from fresh IVF cycles :D
