Kyra Got A Boo Boo...
...It was actually a pretty big boo boo.
Last Saturday, we were looking forward to a fun outing up to Camarillo with the Balice Family - we had planned to bring a picnic dinner and enjoy a free Steve Tyrell concert in the park. Well, that all changed when Kyra decided to accidentally scare the living daylights out of us! She was playing on a chair that she's played on countless times before. But this time, she somehow slipped and her face went right into the corner of Grandpa's desk - HARD! Poor girl! She was instantly wailing and her forehead swelled up quickly, turning a deep shade of purple with a line indented on her face above her eyebrow! Thank God our eyes are set back in our heads a little bit, or else she might have seriously hurt her eye. Trying to put ice on a toddler's face is essentially impossible, so we quickly realized that our efforts to ice her were useless and the swelling was just going to have to be there for a while. Thank goodness for Yo Gabba Gabba because our poor baby wasn't going to calm down otherwise! After some Yo Gabba Gabba and Tylenol, she was pretty exhausted from the traumatic events, so she went down for a long nap. We contemplated still taking her up north for our original evening plans, but decided we'd be better off observing her and just letting her rest. She didn't show any signs of concussion or other serious head injury, but it seemed like she had been through enough and a long car ride might not have been the most relaxing thing for her. So we were sorry to miss out on our plans, but were happy to see Kyra playful and calm!
She's already healing up and the line down her face has significantly diminished. Babies are such quick healers!
