Why is it that no matter how safe we try to keep them, kids always find a way to hurt themselves?

and why do they only manage the monster graze, egg size lump or black eye when

Photos are due
Grandparents are due
They are about to go into creche
Are about to meet relatives who have not seen them before.

Just put DS (21 months) up for a nap in his toddler bed, complete with bed guard to stop him falling out and soft rugs to stop carpet burns if he does. 10 mins later, he's screaming his head off. I find him still in the bed with an egg size lump on his head and the makings of a great big black eye.

I can only assume that he's been bouncing and has fallen onto the corner of the headboard that is only just accessible over the pillow.

HV due to visit for a meet and greet and to drop of my next baby's red book this afternoon.. Oh well.

Sorry just needed to let out my frustration.

Off to buy a bulk shipment of cotton wool to wrap him in...

DS napped right through the Health Visitors visit so no need to explain the lumps and bumps..
