My first fall at the playground

updated by mommy

I was at work last Thursday and Friday. My in law were around to help up with the kids. On last Friday, my helper brought Isabel out to the playground in the evening together with my fil and Darren.

Apparently she was holding Isabel's hand and suddenly Isabel could not balance herself and fall knee down on the cement walkway. Her left knee landed on the sandy walkway and had some scratches. Isabel did not cry and she brought her back and clean up the wound for her.

When I came back from office, Isabel was behaving normal and looked happy when saw us. She was running up and down and laughing happily. After dinner, my helper told me about the incident and I took a look at her knee and she started crying hysterically. She clinged on to me like koala bear, with her two legs wrapped around my waist. When she also incoporated some "pushing" kind of action in her cries. She seems like in pain. But how come suddenly she reacted like this? She was all the while fine till I took a look at her wound.



Nothing could pacify her. It took us about 2 hours to calm her down and make her sleep. While I carried her, I can't move without her consent. Or else, she started crying again. Hubby held the ipad and showed her the favourite children songs and I have to hold her standing up. We made so many guesses...stomach ache? leg pain? hungry? too tired?.... nothing solved our puzzles..

Till the next day, she woke up happily and fine...till she accidently saw her wound at the knee and she started the same old episodes again...now we have the answer..she is scared when she sees her own scars/wound/scratches...maybe it reminded her about the fall or the pain..or maybe she just dislike the scars on her legs...

From then on, we have to put her on long trouses, so that she could not see her wound. There was one afternoon after her nap, her pants lifted up and she saw her wound and started crying badly on her bed. She dare not even stand up. Poor girl..now we have to hide the wound away from her...

I hope her wound will quickly recover soon, so that she does not need to wear long trouses in the hot weather during the day...

p/s: Within a week, not only Isabel fall down. Friday night itself while I was comforting Isabel in her room, her kor kor fell from the stairs. Then last evening, kor kor fell from the slide. What a week..it is just so heartbreaking to see the kids getting injured....
