Today, we got the call every parent dreads — the midday call from daycare.
We trust the folks at Miles’s daycare. They exist specifically to provide childcare and development. Hell, they’re technically more qualified than we are. And that’s why that call is such a big deal — it means something has happened that we need to know about.
The particular “something” that happened today? Miles was playing with a toy and he bonked himself in the head with it. It must’ve landed pretty hard, because there was a slight bruise where the impact happened. And how did Miles respond to this accident? Completely unfazed, he just kept playing. No crying, not even a single tear.
Given the number of headbutts I’ve been on the receiving end of so far, and Miles’s complete lack of remorse or awareness in those cases, I’d say this sounds about right.
