Come, Mommy

Ouch!



Liam, on the phone with Gran-Gran:

Liam: "I bumped my head!"

Gran-Gran: "What did you bump your head on?"

Liam: "The sidewalk!"

The poor guy took a spill on the sidewalk this morning. He's fine in that he doesn't have a concussion, but he's got quite a headache. I'm figuring the week can only go uphill from here after such an inauspicious start.

  • Aww! Poor guy! And poor mommy! Hope his head is feeling better soon.

  • Aww poor baby I hope he feels better soon. Lavender & chamomile has been used to alleviate aches, pains, & headaches.
    My daughter associates lavender, chamomile, & rose geranium with sleepy time and "I need need to feel better". I make the tea for her and I use the oils in a hydrosol. It aids in relaxation. She's usually knocked out within 10-15 minutes. I sometimes make a tea for her witht he herbs from my garden. I used to use a dream pillow however she gave it to my brother's dog, Mr. Bentley to help him sleep. He thought it was a chew toy. Can you imagine cleaning up that mess? ;-)

  • Wow - I had no idea when he said that he "bumped his head" that he really, really bumped his head. Give him lots of hugs and kisses from his Gran-Gran.

  • Oh, how painful that looks. I hope the rest of your week is super to make up for it.

  • Thanks, everyone, for your sympathy. He's doing much better today - his forehead is quite technicolored, but he says his head doesn't hurt anymore. Thank goodness!

    Raw Vegan Momma - thanks for the links :)

    I did use some lavender water to clean his head after the tumble and then later on to make some cold compresses for it. Just the scent makes me relax :)

    I'm thinking I should get some arnica for the first-aid kit - I haven't tried it myself,but I know a lot of folks who swear by it.

  • Chiming in late but . . . Wow, that looks horrible. I hope it's a fading memory now.

  • that is one big owee.
    yes arnica works miracles. you can get it as a spray for the littlies: a couple of squirts in the mouth. don't rub the arnica cream onto broken skin.
    loads of love X
