The Boo-Boo


I held in the curses that I could feel escaping my lips as I lay on the floor, wincing in pain.  “Ow. Ow. Ow,” I repeated over and over, in the hopes that the mere recitation of the syllable would cure the ache in my knee. 


I could see her staring at me from her easel in the corner, just waiting to repeat any inappropriate outburst that I allowed to come out.  So I held it all in.


For the 97th time over the course of six years in that house, I had slipped on the wood floors while wearing socks.  Why would I have learned my lesson?


So, there I sat, knee clutched tightly, rocking back and forth.


“What are you doing, Mommy?”  Avery gently inquired.


“Nothing.  I fell.”


“Do you have a boo-boo?”


I responded through gritted teeth, “Yeah- I think it's a bruise.”  Why wasn't it feeling better yet?


“Do you need a band aid?”  Now she seemed truly concerned.


“Nope.”


Then, without any prompting, Avery came over and kissed my knee and gave me a giant hug.  


It's moments like these that make me so thankful to be a mom.  Even through a little pain, something so simple as your child's kiss can make everything all better.
