Last night I was reading this post about letting boys be boys and I had to comment. We've already visited the emergency room two times and have had our fair share of bumps, bruises, and blood. Just today we were at the park for a parks and rec play day and I was surprised at how many moms were trying to corral my boys, to keep them away from getting hurt. I was a bit on the quiet side today, as Ezra had already taken a spill on his bike, and let a couple moms direct Justus away from an area that he might have gotten hurt (although he was playing in the same space a little bit before and there was really no danger). Ezra ended up falling again and actually got a good size drop of blood on his shorts. If it weren't for his dramatics when he does fall, it would probably be a good testimony to these moms that kids can and should get hurt once in a while. I will now be investing in one of these to keep in the diaper bag/stroller, as I keep having to borrow band aids when we are out.
