My poor head


Look at this adorable face. Who knew this beautiful child could be capable of giving her mother a concussion and a splitting headache for 3 days.

Monday night in the wee hours I was woken by her bony heel smashing into the bridge of my nose. I screamed, I cried, I bled all over myself. My husband, 3 year old and the culprit herself slept on through the drama.

I woke the next day very sore and sorry and not quite right in the head. The progressed to some pretty serious pain and a strange sort of foggy feeling and the light hurting my eyes. The next day I felt clear but had two very puffy and dark eyes, a swollen nose and still some pain. Today I'm OK but only while the pain killers are working. I'm a little stunned at how much it hurts!

And it seems there may be an actual danger to co-sleeping-tiny, bony heels!

She is adorable. I feel your pain, having been there, done that.
I hope you are feeling better, hugs. Before having children I never knew what a physical hazard it could be.

What is with toddlers, it's like they're made of reiforced steel or something, they do such damage to adult heads.

I can remember being headbutted when I was nannying and while I got perilously close to passing out and had a black eye and concussion, Zachary looked at me and giggled.
