The Love Magnet asked if she could ride in the back of the car on the way home from school. Since we just live one street over in a residential area, I didn't think it was a problem.
Oops. (Mom-guilt! Mom-guilt!)
She didn't put her seat belt on and bumped her lip when we made a right turn. She started bleeding and crying, but told me she was strong as we drove the last 60 seconds to our home.
I asked The Love Magnet to go in the bathroom and wash her lip so I could check it. She was gone a long time (for her) and finally came down the stairs.
The Love Magnet: "Mommmmm, mmm-mf mmmmm-mf."
Me: "What did you say, Sweetie?"
The Love Magnet: "Mommmm, mmm-mf mmm-mf!"
I still didn't understand so I turned around.
She fixed her fat lip.
It kept her quiet for a good hour. She read books and played with her dolls until dinnertime.
