For the couple of years, my daughter has had lots of mishaps!! She is very excitable and rambunctious and when she gets hurt she rarely cries, she keeps on going! When she was 30 months, she knocked her head on the leg of the couch, leaving a bruise. She laughed! At three, she broke her wrist playing at the park with cousins. She cried but not the way I would expect from someone with a broken wrist!! She loves to wrestle with her four cousins, all under the age of eight, and she once hurt the seven-year-old on accident by swinging back and bloodying his nose! I don't think she has ADD but she is a wild child! I love that she's a free spirit but recently, she managed to knock out her front tooth (she's four, so it wasn't loose. I know, I brush her teeths :) ) She doesn't seem to worry or be sensitive to any of these things! I'm worried as she gets older and goes to school she may really get hurt! She doesn't seem to feel pain like a typical child her age. When she had her tooth knocked out she was actually fascinated! My brother tells me that Kennedy is really tough kid, that his kids are a bit afraid of her. Not because she is scary but because she is really, really rough! She barely pushed down a cousin close to her age, who cried and cried. Not long after, Kennedy herself fell down the carpeted stairs at my mom's house. She got a skinned elbow but laughed. I am glad she is a tough little kid but I'm worried she will one day get really hurt! Anyone out there relate?? Or have some advice?? Thanx!
