Silly Monkey Story: see a doctor, mama!

last friday, i was wearing sandals that have very slippery soles. on my way to work, i slipped and landed on my knee. i ended up with a 1in bruise on my knee.

today, again, i was wearing the same pair of sandals. and again, slipped and landed on the same knee! but it was worse this time. last friday, at least, i was with my hubby so he was able to help soften the fall. today, i was with friends and we were walking and chatting when it happened. i fell badly on my knees and although i was wearing a pair of slacks, i had abrasions on my knee and an even bigger bruise, about 2in diameter.

when i came home, and after changing my clothes, mikee saw the boo-boo on my knee. and here's our little chat about it ...

mikee: mama, what happened your knee?
me: i slipped!
mikee: oh, you have a boo-boo!
me: yes, i do.
mikee: now, you have to see a doctor, mama. you go now. but don't be scared, okay? it's just a doctor. you don't have to be scared of doctor, mama. okay?

haha now the baby is comforting her mommy!
