|Little Mr. Tough Guy!|
I came home from work Tuesday night and just as I was coming in from the garage, I hear my mom say "You're probably going to fire me from babysitting..." (on nights I work, she watches Jay til hubby gets off work around 6 and brings him home, and then since he has to leave for his night job by 10 and I don't usually get home til just after 10 she comes over to watch Jay for about a half hour or so).
Well, we can say Jay's shed blood for the 1st time.
My mom was watching him play in the family room and he was playing with the toys on his activity table (which is low to the ground) when he decided to climb across it to reach the floor lamp cord behind it. The activity table sits next to one of our bookshelves though and my mom thinks his foot slid on one of those small animal blanket loveys we have a few of, losing his footing and he banged his face near his eyebrow on the edge of the bookshelf!

of the blood
She said it happened about 10 minutes before I got home and was bleeding quite a bit but had mostly stopped. I cleaned up the excess on his face with a wipey since we didn't want to use Neosporin for fear he'd rub it in his eye or get some in his mouth.
My mom kept saying he looked like a little pro-boxer or fighter with the cut above his eye like that, lol...
I must say, it looked A LOT better the next day than it did when I first saw it.
Of course as she's showing me and explaining what happened Jay's trying to slide/swing under the bar across the bottom of the kitchen chairs, nearly smacking his head on the floor had I not intervened when I saw it about to happen!
I hope he's not going to be accident prone like my sister was - my mom kept saying his daredevil-ness lately reminded her of my sister at that age!
