Extra Large Ang Pows

On CNY eve, XY got a deep cut on her left knee at PIL's house. We were inside the house and suddenly I heard XY crying loudly outside. I knew something terrible must have happened. Rushed out and found her sitting on the floor with a bleeding knee. There was quite a lot of blood as it was dripping when she stood up. Brought her inside and stopped the bleeding before cleaning it with dettol. Then MIL gave me some aloe vera cream to apply. She was sobbing all the while. I'm not sure if it's out of pain or fear (seeing so much blood or getting scolded).

Later we found out how she fell. BIL just got back and XY saw him downstairs (garage is at the basement). She ran down the stairs to the grille door to greet him. She must have slipped and fell forward. Then knocked her knee at the grille door. That was how she got the cut. So she got her first ang pow in The Year of The Rat and she ushered in the new year with a bandage on her knee. Tsk tsk tsk... Hope it wouldn't leave a very big scar.

~ XY's almost-healed knee ~

As for CE, he's got two bumps on his head. Yup, you read it right. He's got TWO now. Here's what happened. We went to BIL's house for dinner on Sunday. They've also invited some friends over, who used to be PaPa and BIL's housemates. Finally, I got to 'lou sang' that night. I think that'll be the first and last time to 'lou' for this CNY.

Ok, back to the story. Before I went upstairs to bathe XY, I told PaPa to look after CE. When I was in the bathroom, I heard a loud thud, followed by CE's wails. My heart almost stopped coz he sounded quite near, which meant he wasn't downstairs anymore. I ran out of the room and saw him at the top of the stairs. PaPa also ran up. CE was still crying and we could see a bump on the right side of his forehead. Sigh... he bumped the left side on Friday. So now he looked like a li'l devil with 2 horns. hahaha.

We don't know how he knocked his head but we're very relieved he didn't fall off the stairs. That's a real scary thought. We need to be more careful next time. PaPa thought I brought CE upstairs with me while I thought he was being looked after downstairs. Thank god nothing serious happened.

Old folks say, bumps will make them grow big and tall.

On a more serious note, do you have stair gates installed?

Kids tend to have this small small accidents at home. For your small one it is quite dangerous if he play near the staircase. Suggest you get an extra gates to block the stairs. I did that to my staircase at home.
