First Big Owie

It’s hard to believe that the event took place only ten days ago, yet it’s even harder to believe that it took about half that time for Sophia’s face to return to normal.  She and I and Jolie were all playing at the park in the sunny weather that lasted for about 2 weeks here, and all of a sudden Sophia went from standing up on the platform of the slide, to lying down at the bottom of the steps, face in hands, blood everywhere.  She wouldn’t show me what happened at first, but at last I saw the slit in her lips.  I still don’t know quite what happened, the only thing she told us was that she wasn’t being careful.  

It wasn’t fun holding her down to get stitched up.  I kept praying that she knew we weren’t trying to hurt her more than she had already been hurt.  She was a tough girl about the whole thing though.  

Thank goodness for popsicles.
