Bound to Happen

Sooner or later, it was bound to happen. Wendy is very, very active, and is always thinking up new & creative ways to jump, run, dance, fall, and otherwise injure herself. It was just a matter of time before she got her first fat lip.

Actually, I'm kind of surprised that it took her so long.

This fat lip is the result of running too fast (which is a phrase uttered all the time in our house - "I run too fast!") and stepping on a book that had been abandoned on the floor. The book sent her skiing across the carpet, until she fell right into the corner of a laundry basket. Once I cleaned up the tears & blood, I gave her a Fruit Chiller to help with the pain & swelling. Wendy thinks that the Fruit Chillers are ice cream, and she cheered up right away!

I'm sure it won't be the last time I fix an owie with "ice cream"!

Ice cream usually makes me feel better.

Wow! She has made it a long time for her first fat lip -- Corban has her (unfortunately) beat by more than a year! And yes, ice cream is always the answer, no matter the problem! :-)
