First blood

Playing standing up games in the bath, he slipped and immediately started to cry. I saw what looked like a piece of red glitter on his tongue.
He’d knocked his chin and bitten a little gash. First time i’d really seen his blood. First of many to come, i think. Particularly given Lynda’s report to me that once Claire started crawling she was “a horror”. Whether to herself or to everything fragile around her i have yet to clarify…
He calmed down quite quickly, and we before bed, we did a new variation on the game of passing back and forth. (‘For daddy? Thank you. Oh, this is lovely, thank you Leo. Now would Leo like this?’)
We swapped two useless objects a few time, each time Leo reaching for mine while passing me his. I hope this bodes well for future sharing.
