Milestone: Mimi's First Wipeout
I was at a neighbor friend's house doing laundry yesterday (our washer broke,) whilst cleaning up her house to thank her. I was taking the compost out in the back yard, and Amelia found a very flimsy chair to climb on. She fell pretty badly, and beyond scraping her nose and nostrils, she has a big bump on her head, a cut inside her mouth and two skinned knees. She actually handled it pretty well. She thinks her scabs are funny when she looks in the mirror, but whenever I mention going back to my friend's house, she goes through a verbal inventory of what happened. It could have been so much worse, and I am frankly surprised she lasted this long! Surely more to come, but I still feel bad for her.
