While taking my quick shower this morning before heading to mommy/baby group in Fort Greene Park, I heard Indio crying and E trying to settle him down. And then I heard the most dreaded sound of a new mom: a large bang and the piercing cry of my flesh and blood. I knew he had hit his head and quickly tried to rinse off all the soap before checking on E since I didn't want him to think he couldn't handle the situation on his own.
Once semi-dried and out of the tub, I asked E what happened to which he replied that he had whacked Indio's precious little noggin on the door frame while trying to get the exercise ball in position for some pre-nap bouncing/soothing. Ack! What were we supposed to do? Do we call the doctor? Head the to the ER? Ice? What???
There was a definite bump and redness above his right eye, but he seemed fine. E didn't think we needed to call Dr. Ajl, but in light of the recent news about head injuries I did anyway. Dr. Ajl called back about an hour later to relieve my worries, telling me Indio will be fine and to just keep an eye on him.
I guess this is only the beginning of many bumps and bruises to come.
