Tips on Recovering from Not-So Magical Days

A few days ago, Soren had a pretty rough day. With four teeth coming in and becoming more and more daring with his movements, the day was filed with mini-accidents and a not-so-happy baby.

Since Soren has been learning to walk and standing as much as possible, he’s become so much more prone to boo-boos. Poor buddy! I absolutely hate seeing him so sad. The day started off with a crawling accident. Going a little too fast for his own good and missing the part where he puts his hand in front of him. He hit his face on the floor and gave us a good cry. The second time was when he was standing and trying to walk to me, he proceeded to leap forward and hurt his lip on his new teeth. And finally, the day ended with another fall, hurting his lip even more on his teeth. This time he cried hard. It made me so sad seeing him hurt. I started crying myself. We just sat there for a little while cuddling and crying. It was a rough day for little Soren.

How do we recover from those not-so magical days and cheer up our little ones when things are looking down? Here are a few things that helped turn our day around and end on a happy note:
