There is nothing worse in the world than when your child hurts themselves. My heart hurts so much every time I look at my sweet Luke. He was running down the sidewalk this weekend and crashed face first. He now has a huge scrape across his nose and forehead – basically he looks like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
I’ve been amazed at the absolute pure guilt that both Daddy Russ and I have been experiencing. We both blame ourselves. Daddy Russ has probably told Luke he’s sorry about a million times. I have to try and not cry every time I look at him. He didn’t even really cry when it happened but it took everything in me to not bawl. I know this is the first of many scrapes and bruises but it doesn’t make it any easier.
Have you ever experienced something similar? How do you stop feeling so guilty?!
