We have a tough little boy

Julien is your stereotypical little boy. He is rough, he likes to climb and play and get into trouble. It;s pretty much a guarantee that he will have skinned knees all summer long, and for the most part they don't seem to bother him.

Last weekend, he tripped on my mothers laneway and skinned his knees (not badly) but he also took a small chunk out of his palm. We got him all cleaned up (after some drama) and all was better by wednesday.

Then, we had gone to bayshore yesterday and he likes to open the doors. Unfortunately, the doors going into the bay are extremely heavy, and don't have a push button.  He was having trouble, so I grabbed the handle and pulled -and then Jules started screaming. His foot had been in the way - and when I looked, there was blood everywhere. Apparently, the door hit the top of his toe and ripped the skin - I thought I had ripped off the toenail, but after further investigation it was just that the top of his toe had been sliced open.

Mom and I got him calmed down (I think I cried more than he did) and got him back to her place to clean him up. He did let us eventually put on a bandaid - and then decided that because of his toe he couldn't walk. As much as I wanted to let him get away with it - I told him that in the house he had to walk, but I would carry him outside since we weren't going to be putting his sandal back on that foot.
