On Monday evening Bug fell and hit her head. There were many tears all the way around. Bug cried for just a bit but was soon over it. The girls were not. They cried off and on most of the evening and then every time they looked at her fore-head they cried some more. They are pretty tender hearted to anyone getting hurt but can't stand it when babies get hurt. Especially this one.
An interesting thing that started out of this is that our youngest started playing with her baby dolls again. She has been carrying them everywhere and watching over them. She has started feeding them, clothing and changing them, and asking us to baby-sit them. I know she is trying to work through Bug getting hurt but she doesn't realize that's what she is doing. It is interesting how a 6yo processes things. We had a good talk with her about how babies fall and get hurt and sometimes there is just nothing you can do about it.
I love that they love her enough to be so upset when she hurts. :-)
