Sad day. Yesterday I took Kapri to the park up the street. There's a 'big kid' kind of area and a 'smaller' kid area there. So K typically chills out over in the smaller kid area with the smaller kiddie equipment. BUT, on this particular day...there was a massive mommy group meeting thing happening in the corner of the park...so all their older kids overtook the park. Fantastic.
Don't get me wrong, I love watching K interact with other kids & playing together...but these kids were a few years older, to where they looked at her like a little baby... which, in comparison, kinda makes sense since they can all speak long, full sentences and she can't, hahaha! Anyway, they kinda overtook the smaller kid area/equipment, so K & I cruised over to the big kid area with the ginormous double slide.
ANYWAY...after 5 or so minutes of walking behind her as she desparately pulled herself up the little bar-stairs, then holding her in front of me as we went down the 'big kid' slides...I was maybe a foot behind her again, when I looked up to laugh at a little boy whining about a girl shoving him...and in that split second, Kapri falls. Hard. But at first I didn't think it was that bad, neither did she I think. 5 seconds later....SCREAMS. Tears.....Blood. Fan-freakin-tastic.
