Special Needs

Always an adventure...

Yesterday I got the dreaded call from daycare.  You know, the one that sends the moment of panic through your body.

"DD2 had an accident.  You need to pick her up and take her to the doctor."

It was a great reminder of why I always begin parent phone calls with "Your child is FINE!" (I'm a teacher for those who don't know). 

She just started to walk (took her first steps on Christmas day) and in her weeble wobble mode, fell and hit her bottom lip/chin on the edge of a child's table.  Initially the daycare thought she bit through her lip, but thankfully upon further investigation, she only sliced open the outside.  However, it was a good enough slice to require 3 stitches.  Thankfully DH was working from home (it was a teacher workday so he had LA) so he went with us and did all the pinning down during the procedure.  Mama didn't need to see that or hear the screams!!

Here she is just prior to going back for stitches with the numbing meds on her chin.

    She is such a trooper.  It isn't slowing her down at all.  It is taking all of my will-power to NOT helicopter over her today. 

    LOL @Auntie about the hair.  Her hair is seriously crazy right now (and I secretly love it).  Check out this picture :)

  • DS1 did the same thing over Labor Day weekend.  He stumbled into a shelf and needed 3 stitches right under his lip.  You can't even see the scar anymore.

    And, she is such a stinkin cutie!

    That is crazy that they needed the same number of stitches!  Thankfully, it is right under her lip and it is hard to see even now.  I was initially worried about a scar.  On a boy, it is a "war wound" and no big deal, but on a girl...well...no one wants a scar on their face if it can be avoided.
  • What a cutie you have! My son fell a couple weeks ago and sliced above his eye...3 stitches too! I thought I could handle the procedure but nope... Definitely left the room sobbing! Hope she's all better soon!

  • THAT HAIR!!!  So cute.  I think the bandages make her even cuter.  Poor kid.  Glad it wasn't too awful and that you didn't have to go through the screaming and the crying.  

    Hope she gets better soon.
