Thumbs down Christian wiped out...

So we went for a walk, the kids rode there bikes down to the neighbors yesterday and the road commission put down some rock over tar (resurfasing the road i guess) and Christian tried to turn around and head back towards DH and I, and he wiped out BAD. He skined his knee and elbo pretty bad. by the time we got to the neighbors (maybe a couple hundered feet) he had blood down his leg and all over his foot. he was crying but not to bad til he looked down and saw the blood. then he lost it and was sobbing. but is doing much better today.

So how do your kids react to seeing blood on them self?

Sarah is just okay with the sight of blood on herself (is fine with it on others)
but Andrew has been a disaster with blood on himself (and believe me, he gets bloody a LOT! )
he's getting better about it - - after I explained that he can't die from a little bloody scrape because there wasn't enough blood leaving his body to kill him

My kids both tend to freak out- not so much about the blood, but the "trauma" of the injury- they're both so dramatic- even the smallest injuries with no blood get the same treatment as the bloody variety.

Hannah freaks at first, then goes for paper towels or tissues and then the band-aids.

I hope he's healing up good. I remember how much falling off/wrecking bikes were growing up. That hurts so darn bad!! Did he hop back on with no problems??
Kaitlyn gets bumps a lot and cries for those. She always hits hard for some reason when she falls. Julia is okay unless she sees blood. She automatically looses it until she gets cleaned up. After that she's usually fine.
