Not the way we want to increase his vocabulary!

He already knew the word “hot,” now he knows “burn” too.  Ugh.

Monkey grabbed my travel mug of  hot tea this AM and scalded his hand.  His poor little fingers are red and he has two blisters.  They don’t think there will be any long-term effects, we just need to keep it clean and watch for infection if the blisters break.  Poor kid.  He’s taking both Tylenol and Motrin and is now acting like nothing happened.

    Poor little Monkey! Yeah but I am sure when it did happen, he must have been really hurting. Grammy and Grampy send booboo kisses to make it all better.

    Poor guy! You’re right, definitely not how we want them to learn new words. Unfortunately, that’s how a couple of ours have learned them too. Avery got burned on the curling iron ONCE. Ian got burned from the iron ONCE. Hopefully, Benjamin will learn a different, non-experiential way!
