It has been a season of accidents lately. Recently two of our kiddos were playing. Middle brother was pulling baby girl around around the wood floors on a fleece blanket. One can usually hear me saying, "Don't swing wide, slow down around the corners."
Well as I'm sure you can guess they got to playing and missed the "don't swing wide" lesson and "bam" baby girl hit the corner of the wall.
Needless to say, we made a VERY quick trip to the doctor's office for stitches in her forehead.
From a mom's point of view, I don't know if there is anything much worse than sitting by your child while they scream for you to make it better. We sat in tears together through this experience.
Then last week, while at a friend's house, our oldest took a spill off a bike and broke his hand.
After it happened, we suspected there was something wrong, but didn't take him in until the following day. He didn't complain about it, but it seemed much too swollen.
Well, Big brother now has a nice short cast on his hand. Never a dull moment!
