It's a ton of jelly, but my Mom and I both love it and I have a few people who I'm going to pass on jars to for little thank you gifts and such. It's such a rare treat around here since crab apple trees are getting harder and harder to find. Most people just have the decorative ones and you can't make anything out of those apples.

DS is insisting he wear big boy underwear today. Problem with this, the smallest size I can find is 2T and it falls right off of him. Upside is that it's after 9am and he has kept them dry so far.

Wow, a lot of jelly! We had a macintosh apple tree in our backyard, but it really attracted a lot of bugs and bees so we took it down...my SIL was devastated lol.

Yay for big boy underwear!!!! So funny it falls right off him hahaha. I can see that happening to Cam when the time comes, he's got such a tiny waist.

So today at the dropoff for daycare...I didn't even get his shoes off and he was running for downstairs...I think its safe to say he LOVES it! I am soooooo relieved. He didn't nap well yesterday but hopefully today will be better. His top two teeth are soooooooooo close to finally coming in, like white almost poking through. I'm hoping tonight...I've been saying that all week though lol.

OK, only mom's can share and be happy about this! DS used the potty! He even stayed dry on our walk to the post office and back, I'm so proud of my little man.

Oh he's nowhere near ready for me to take him to a store without a diaper, and I put one back on him for nap time too. I'm just impressed that he came to us wanting to try and did it.

Yay!!!!!! I am not looking forward to that stage at all!

So....here's Cam today...they were playing in the backyard, and she has a deck at the side, and it has two steps down to the driveway when the gate is open. A little girl was being picked up, and she pinched herself when putting on her bike helmet, so the DCP made sure she was ok, but accidentally didn't close the gate the whole way. My determined little man opened the gate and proceeded to walk towards her, as he has absolutely no depth perception and he looooooves her. And smashed his head into the driveway I don't blame her in any way, its something I easily could have done as well. And he cried for all of 10 seconds and then totally forgot it even happened. She also called me right away and everything so I wasn't surprised when I came to get him...I did end up picking him up a little earlier. It looks super painful, but he didn't even flinch when I put more polysporin on it. We'll see how things go tonight.

I'm sure this is just the beginning but it still sucks. It could have been worse, at least he didn't need stitches or anything. Its more scrapes than anything and those usually don't really scar so hopefully everything will turn out ok. Unfortunately his 1 year appointment with the doctor is on Monday...I hope they don't judge :/

Bree's right, by Monday it won't look bad at all, kids heal amazingly quick. You're doctor shouldn't judge, keep in mind they see kids all the time. I've only had one doctor question bruising on any of my kids and she was just a student, my family doc actually told me she would question me more if my kids didn't have the occasional bump or bruise.

Ok, and I posted the picture on our PR FB group and two ladies are shocked I'm not pulling him and freaking out and p'd off, etc. etc. etc. Am I being too laid back about it? I don't think so...accidents happen, she called me right away, he wasn't in dire pain...but am I wrong? I'm new to this whole thing...I mean, if he has another accident next week, I'll be more inclined to be 'what the heck', but I know Cam can have tunnel vision and has no fear. So while it sucks that he hurt himself, with 4 kids running around, I don't think she can only look at my wild child 100% of the time...I think that's fair. But now I'm second guessing myself...

I think you need to trust your mommy gut. Youre the one who knows her and you know your child. He sounds like my Will, Will is fearless, he bonks his head and falls down more than any child ive met, its just him.

IMO it doesnt matter who watches your baby, at some point he IS going to fall, he IS going to get hurt, it might happen at a day care center with 2 teachers and 20 kids, or it might happen at home when grandma is watching only him. Thats just how kids are, especially toddlers.

IMO your daycare lady acted appropriately, called right away, explained the situation and was honest with you so if it were my kid, id send him back. If it happens all the time, id definitely reconsider it but if you trust her then i think hes good there

I agree you have to follow your gut. He's a toddler and accidents happen. Toddlers are adventuresome by nature, some more than others, and tend to get into things or try things that older kids wouldn't. You can't bubble wrap them.

Personal opinion I'd giver her the benefit of the doubt that it was an accident this time, your provider did act appropriately when it happened and he wasn't seriously injured. If he starts coming home hurt on a regular basis, then I'd question it.
