Molly has a number of these little princess type shoes. I really don't like them. They clip clop so loud around our house on the hard wood floors. Another problem is that they tend to be slippery. There is little bit of traction but little might be generous when describing what these have on the bottoms.
Today Molly slipped again and this time she hit her face on the edge of a book case. She started bawling and screaming (which isn't really that new around here. It is her preferred way to communicate displeasure or irritation). It wasn't until Henry yelled "Molly is bleeding" that I jumped into action.
With blood all down the side of her face and her shirt covered with blood, I had her lay down and went to grab a wet cloth to clean her off and inspect the wound. After just a short time and a bit of pressure this is what I saw.
Sophie showed Molly her scar on her forehead from a similar accident. Sophie had a trip to the ER and stitches. Molly just got a little neosporin and a bandaid.
A quick change of clothes and a bucket of playmobil toys later she is happy again.
This girl is tough! Just like Harry Potter.
