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. 😦
One response to “Rule #118”
I have a scar in the EXACT same spot which also took six stitches when I was three. I was at daycare and the lady kept telling us not to run in the house. I didn’t listen, ran, tripped over a toy, and smacked my eye on the corner of a coffee table.
