Rule #118: Apparently the number of times you tell your child to “Be Careful” is proportional to how likely he is to need stitches. On a weekend. When Mommy is out of town.
When I was out of town a few weekends ago, Gavin fell into the wooden part of our rocking chair. Meanest Daddy did a great job handling the 6 stitches (with the other 2 kids in tow) at the urgent care clinic. Stitches were removed last week, and Gavin is healing nicely. I am almost recovered from being gone when my kid got hurt. 😦
