Oh no! Look what Buddhi just did to himself!

Oh crap! I should be just about to hop on a bus up to the boys' school to pick them up, but I'm home doing "concussion watch" instead, and Dave is leaving work early to pick the boys up because Bryn pitched headlong off a dining room chair about 40 minutes ago, creating the following prize-winning lump on his beautiful forehead!




I didn't want to leave the house with him just in case, he did have a concussion and started fading on me, eek! But, of course, he's fine. Didn't cry much thanks to booby. I know Solter says you shouldn't stuff booby in a child's mouth at the first sign of upset, but I find it unrivelled in stemming upset, lowering blood-pressure (theirs and mine) and thus avoid further bloodshed or bruising... Poor little blighter!

Ouch!! Hope he's okay (and I think there's nothing wrong with booby - has lots of stuff that can help including analgesic properties...)

Poor Bryn! And just for the record, I reckon my boob went in the kids mouths at the slightest bit of discomfort - and they seemed to have turned out okay LOL! Thank goodness you have that as a comforting tool!!!

I can't seem to find anywhere information on how many children Solter had. Has anyone got the book to see if it's on the back cover?

I don't know. Cass, perhaps she was like Leidloff, a theorist with no personal practice experience as a mother...

Sif said...

Ok, she has at least two children...
