No Need for helmet

Friday, November 09, 2012

My nephew doesn't need the helmet; his head is normal for him. He's part Native American and having to take that into perspective I could see that. It's kind of amazing how similar yet different each ethnic groups body formation is. Being a protective aunt I still think he should get a helmet. The boy bumps his head so much I get freaked out by it at times. My nieces didn't hit their heads nearly as much as he does. Just the other day my oldest sister was watching him and I joked about how his high chair didn't have cushioning on it and sure enough he slams his head on the back of it. He was fine, didn't even flinch.
After all these years of watching my nieces and nephew grow, I have an awe over being able to witness it. I'm very fascinated with how different each one took on each obstacle in their lives so far. I wish I would have started taking notes back when my first niece was born, because I think it would have made an interesting book.

Thank you everyone for keeping my nephew in your prayers. It's been a comfort.

    YAY for no helmet!

    My god son when he was little was a hurricane! He would fall, slam his head, bump his body parts and even dislocate his arm....wouldnt flitch! However, if you made a big deal out of it he would scream bloody murder. Make light of it and he was off toddeling or backflipping off something. I told my friend he is gonna put Evel Knievel to shame when he grows up. lol Kids bounce back adults...not so much! lolz

    I get it. I have a fairly fearless toddler. Glad he doesn't need the helmet, at least for daily living. I am about to get one for mine because sledding season is almost here. No way I am letting him on a slider without one.
