These days I am a walking bunching bag for my toddler. He inadvertently injures me and laughs afterwards. Sometimes I audibly whimper after his kicks, scratches or bruises me to let him know: "That hurt mommy, ouch!" And then he has a look of quiet concern on his face. But I don't want him to feel that badly, so I quickly go back to playing with him to distract him from what just happened.
Needless to say, this needs to stop. But I am having a difficult time figuring out how to curb these random injuries and how to react after being accidentally injured.
