thump in the night

Things that go thump in the night:
  1. Baby bear scrambling out of her cot and hitting the wooden floor at about 2:00 in the morning. No apparent damage, except to my beauty sleep.
  2. My thigh against the edge of the bed end as I leapt out of bed and flew to baby bear's room as soon as I heard the thump. I didn't even notice it until much later in the morning when it had turned into a great tender lump.
The photograph is small to protect the identity of my thigh (and perhaps people's sensibilities).

OUCH!!! Don't just love those bumps in the middle of the night?

ouch! if only the corners of beds came with cushioning for application in times of young children, both to stop their heads crashing into corners and to prevent nasty bruises on parental limbs!
