Back to booboos. Now that Claire is running around everywhere we are experiencing quite a few OUCH moments over here. Recently she got hurt and I kissed the spot that was hurting (I don't remember where it was). She instantly stopped crying, smiled, and gave a little happy chuckle. I didn't even tell her that the kiss was supposed to magically make her stop hurting. It just happened, and now each time she smashes a finger or takes a little tumble, I kiss the booboo and she really is better!
My pre-mom self would have thought, umm there is no way a kiss could literally make that scraped knee feel better...
Now, I think it is so sweet that a kiss from Mom could make my girl happy. Oh how motherhood changes us!
