I’ve got a little brother so I am no newbie when it comes to busted lips. My parent’s house is pretty much all tile so my younger brother would have a busted lip – what seemed like once a month when he was little.
Yesterday, we were all upstairs and Jason had just opened the blinds so Jackson could look out. Jackson got SOOO excited and he started bouncing up and down. Well, he bounced a little too close to the window sill and busted that bottom lip of his.
The poor thing was crying so hard, and that little lip was bleeding pretty good. Jason had the idea to give him some ice – something I don’t usually like doing but it calmed him down and I’m sure helped with the swelling.
After the bleeding stopped, we snuggled up on the couch and watched Peter Pan. We only got about a quarter of the way through and Jackson was ready to go play again…
His lip looks pretty gnarly today. I forgot to get a picture of it from the side but it is pretty crazy looking. I’m sure this is the first of many more to come – I am mother to an adventurous, spirited, no fear little boy after all.
