A reinactment

Sunday afternoon we were at Eric's parents' cottage after our night away at a B&B (more to come on the lovely place we stayed at soon) and just relaxing. Kiernan was playing with some of the toys Grammy had for him, including a small ride-on bike. At some point he lost his balance and fell off the bike, banging his head on the coffee table on the way down. He broke into tears and after a couple of minutes of being comforted he was ok again.

Except, the fall had really upset him and he wasn't quite over it. So he told us about it!!

He said boom a couple of times and pointed at the table he had fallen onto. Then he lay down on the floor, close but not quite where he had landed, and pointed to where he had been and said boom again a couple of times.

We were really quick astounded - his first story!

That's so cute - not the part where he was hurt, of course.

What I thought was really funny was how long he drew out the story with the pointing and repeating "boom" until he was sure everyone understood his pain. Very cute!
