Not So Fabulous- A trip to the hospital for our first "real" stitches



I'm not going to say it.

I'm not going to say this could only have happened while The Mr was watching the kids, because it's implied. You'll see what I mean.

As I was in the shower on Sunday, the Mr. decided to inflate all the balls that Landon and Coco play with. So he got out the pump, got all the soccer and basketballs and proceeded to pump them up.

With the kids helping.
Inside our crowded living room.
Letting Landon pump by himself.

Sooooo....Landon pumped and then suddenly flew back and slammed his head into a marble table. Then came the loudest screaming ever. AND BLOOD.

The Mr. says: "Landon cracked his head open" to me, standing there with wet hair. I tried not to freak out. Thank GOD it was a little cut but it was DEEP.

Off to the ER where Landon had to get two staples in the back of his head. That was not fun. He was so nervous he threw up outside the doors of the hospital. Poor guy. He's seen enough of hospitals...

But after the pain of the staples subsided, after we bribed him with 10 new apps for his itouch....we were back in business.

I know you have one of these "while Daddy was watching the kids" stories. So spill it. I want to hear!

Poor guy and poor daddy too. I'm sure he's a little gunshy now. My hubs once cut the tip of my son's finger (he was about 6 months old) when trying to cut his nails. Had to go to the doctor to make sure he didn't need a stitch. To this day,my son is now 5, Hubs will not cut the kid's nails....

Poor little guy and poor hubby! I'm sure he'll be a little gunshy with the kids for the next few weeks. When my son was 6 months old my Hubs cut his finger when trying to trim his nails. The blood and bloody murder screams - from both my boy & Hubs. Luckily he didn't need stitches. My son is now 5 and Hubs still won't cut his or our daughter's nails...

Glad your little guy is ok. My husband is very good with our kids but.....yeah.....if something is gonna happen.....it's probably gonna be during his watch. Hate to say that and I probably just jinxed myself but they just play so rough that it's bound to......you know :-)

Poor Landon! Glad he is okay now.
On the day of our daughter's first birthday party I left to go pick up the cake. When I got back she had a huge bruise under her eye! Oh, husband thought it would be fine to let her play in the mini van, with the door open, and she fell out and hit face first! All of the photos from that day serve as a reminder of how closely her dad was watching her that day, NOT! ;)

Poor Landon!!! What a trooper he is. And I'm so so so sorry for the heart attack you must have had when the Mr. told you!

I'm so relieved all is ok but .... and I tread lightly here. I know how you feel about it happening on dad's watch. I try REALLY hard not to blame my own fabulous husband when things like this happen but I do. Mostly because "things like this" don't happen with me. He is our rock, a fantastic father, caring loving, faithful, do anything for his family kinda guy but speedy reaction time and accident foresight isn't his strong suit.

Sending hugs!
