Thursday 16 June 2011: about the eye
A nursery falling-over event deemed notifiable-by-phone turned out to be nowhere near as serious as it sounded. Whilst running for a toy Edgar apparently tripped and fell into a wall then onto something else, but only has a little light bruising underneath one eye to show for it. There was something which looked like another bruise on the middle of his forehead but it turned out to just be a bit of mud. Once when I picked him up I had to sign an accident form as he'd stood in the way of one of those mechanical-parent swinging-chair things and caught the backswing in the face, with similarly barely-noticeable aesthetic consequences. Of more interest is that he apparently refrained from struggling whilst a cold compress was applied, much as his apparent docility when getting his teeth brushed came as a surprise.
