Jack is a total klutz. I have considered wrapping everything in bubble wrap but I think it’s inevitable that he will hurt himself somehow.
His daycare provider called me this evening to tell me that he fell and hit his cheek this afternoon but I told her that the bruise on his face actually happened here at home. He was jumping around in his crib a few days ago and slipped against the side. This is just one of the many accidents the boy has on an almost-daily basis. As he gets tired, he gets clumsy – like when he is standing right by a chair and his legs just give out so he smacks his chin. Sometimes he just does wacky stuff like crawling under the table and standing up, knocking his head. He’ll do it over and over. How does any parent prevent such goofiness?
We’ve taken to putting a pillow at the head of our bed because Jack scoots upward throughout the night. Without the pillow, the sound of his head jamming against the wall wakes us up in the wee hours.
Babyproofing seems ridiculous at this point. It would be more prudent to move Jack into a padded cell.
