Toughest time

My daughter is one of the very active kids I've seen. We usually don't restrict my daughter from doing something. If she tries to open the door or pull down something from the sofa or throws the onions and potatoes all over the kitchen, she is always allowed to do so. As soon as she started crawling, I taught her how to get down the steps from the hall to my room and to climb up the stairs from the ground floor to our house in the first floor. What I didn't teach was how to get down safely from the cot. Last week she tried by herself when we were not around. She fell down and broke her collar bone.

Though she is not feeling the pain now, its the very toughest time for her. Because of the arm sling she can't use her right hand and now she is pretty much restricted in doing most of her normal mischiefs . It would take around a month to get back to normal, but one month at this age is really too long. Call me a optimistic, but the good thing about this is, since she finds it very difficult to crawl with one hand, she is now more inclined to walk and trying hard. With in a week or two she should be able to walk without any support.

Now for the lesson learnt, never let a kid alone in the bed/sofa.
