There was blood
It was beautiful out and we had a wonderful day on the water. Seth installs water trampolines at a near by lake and today Jericho and I tagged along as he did some advertising, bird repelling and hole patching.
It was hot but we were able to ride in the car long enough to cool off in the air and when we were on the water there was a nice breeze to keep us cool. This was a blessing because I wasn't sure how Jericho would do with the heat. As always she did great and was a delight all day!
I think my heart skipped a beat at the sight of it. Jericho had hit her lip and it was bleeding. Because the blood was coming from her mouth I wasn't sure what to do. I didn't have any thing to wipe it off with. I didn't have any ice to put on it. What did I have? As I surveyed the goods sitting around me I noticed a water bottle, she loves water bottles. I could check her boo boo and make her happy at the same time, this was perfect. I poured a little water on her swelling lip to see that the bleeding had slowed. Jericho had already stopped crying at this point and was actually all smiles because she was getting to play with the water bottle. She was going to be okay. She does have a fat lip and a bruise on her chin but she doesn't seem to notice either. She's a tough little cookie. This was not Jericho's first boo boo, but it was the first with blood and we survived.
