As you can tell by my default pic today my little girl (14 months old) has been roughed up. They didn't tell me anything other then "she bonked her nose on the kiddie table" (a plastic playstool smooth edge table). She has a sliced lip, sliced nose, and roadrash on her forehead. I dont know what emotion to feel today so I thought sharing with moms that have had similar stories might help. We spent the night in the ER filing reports and meeting with Child Services and the local police. Today is just a numb day. The director of the facility fired the teaching staff for the infant/toddler room while I was there yesterday. She is nothing but apologetic and is installing nanny cams in everyroom today. Which I'm thankful for but I still feel that it's a little too late. I know the wounds will heal but I feel like I failed my little girl. I know I shouldn't but its my job to protect her. They hurt my baby. My sweet little girl that keeps to herself, doesn't rough-house, doesn't do anything but sit and smile and read her books. As a mother of 3 girls I know there are going to be bumps, bruises, and tears...but this is just ridiculous and the fact that no one is telling me how this happened makes me question everything.
