Return of the Unicorn

We had a traumatic event this weekend, although I'm not sure if it was more traumatic for mom or for child. Over the weekend we were visiting Oma and Opa. Stella was playing in the sandbox having a good ol' time with Uncle Christoph and Daddy. Stella somehow lost her balance, toppling over the edge of the sandbox and doing a face-plant on the patio. The tremor of her head hitting the pavement reverbrating under our feet with a dull thud.

It was one of those moments where everything happened in super slow motion and yet was so quick that neither of us could react in time to stop the event from happening.

We picked up Stella and without a moment's notice "Supermom" swooped in and whisked Stella away, leaving daddy standing there dazed as to what just happened. In discussing the situation afterwards, Maja explained that with full adrenaline flowing, her only thought was that if she got Stella out of the "scene" it would help calm her down. So she ran by, grabbed Stella and went into the house.

Needless to say, Stella calmed down after a few minutes and showed no signs of internal injury. She does however have a huge bump on her forehead but it doesn't seem to bother her. As I assured Maja, this isn't the first nor the last bump, bruise or scrape that Stella has or will get.

And the adventures continue….
