News Flash: Toddlers are Clumsy
Our two-year-old is sporting a fashionable new look these days. A few days ago she was on the losing end of a battle with the bedside table and now has an impressive black eye.
Those sneaky end tables. They can just jump right out at you.
On the day of the table incident our daughter bumped her forehead on the hardwood floor as well. (On the same side as the black eye, of course.)
She also had her fingers closed in a door.
It was a very traumatic day for our young princess.
All this to say: Toddlers are clumsy. They're accident-prone. They tend to be top-heavy. They often wear bruises as badges of honour.
This thing called walking can be very tricky business, indeed.
