Toddler Tracking - The Blood Trail Method

Your two-year old is crying but you cannot tell exactly where the sound is coming from.

Blood Trail

Then, being a Super Observant Parent, you notice the blood droplets on the floor. Like a trail of breadcrumbs, they conveniently lead you straight to him.

(It was a nose bonk from roughhousing with his brother. He's fine.)

See my nomination buttons up there on the left? A Hottest Mommy Blogger nomination on the day I post about how old my hands look and how I'm a Giant Post-Menopausal EMOTION. And a Best Parenting Blog nod when I have a post scheduled about "How To Find Your Baby By Following His Blood Trail."

Irony is Awesome.

Only YOU can make this irony complete though, by clicking on those buttons and keeping me from completely washing out over there among the Big Blogs. You have to register, but really, if you are here reading this you clearly have nothing better to do right? (It only takes a second - no lie.)

I thank you in advance for your vote and I'll happily kiss your baby as soon as I see you again or for the first time.

You know you're a blogger when you run for the camera before you run for the band-aids ;) Very funny.

Glad the injury was minor, and congrats on your nominations!

OK, I just spent like ten minutes trying to sign up to vote for you and did not succeed in creating an account. The site hates me, but I will try again later.

Congrats on your nominations! And being able to tolerate aging hands (not!) and blood trails...

Hee hee - I did at least patch up the kid before I took the pictures!

But blogging does make one photograph strange things.

Dear Nancy Drew,

Good job on solving the mystery of the bloody drops.

I laugh as I find myself taking pictures of things like my crockpot...(get married, get a crockpot. How did I live to 46 and not own one?)...for my little lonely blog.

I endeavored to vote for you, registered and everything, but my vote never seemed to register.

Thanks for the visit to my blog and the suggestion of Jenny. I WILL check her out on iTunes today!

Just stopping by following a blog trail. Its a slow sunday. Alright, I'll vote. But only because, I too, LOVE the irony.
