Life is a basket full of little episodes that seem disconnected yet somehow together paint one big picture!
A lot has been happening lately and my mind is a mess today. My son smashed his thumb while playing yesterday and broke his nail, the ensuing tension gave me a migraine that won’t go even after popping two painkillers 😅
But there’s one part of this ordeal I won’t forget, while trying to stop the blood spurting from his thumb, working methodically at washing, cleansing, applying cold compress and trying to calm him I kept hearing him say ketchup... I couldn’t understand why he was screaming for ketchup at such time and then it struck me. He thought his blood was ketchup, this was his first big bruise, his first experience with a bloody mishap! Yet another little first goes by, how quickly time flies.
A day he surely will forget and I’ll definitely remember ketchup and all.
The migraine seems hell bent on making sure I remember it too 🤦🏽♀️
