We had a little scare yesterday and went to the ER for our first toddler injury (and hopefully our last for at least a very long long time). It’s inevitable that having a very curious and rambunctious toddler will lead to accidents, and I’ve accepted that fact that there will bumps and bruises along the way. However, we had lots of tears and blood yesterday.
Little man tripped on a bath rug and got into a fight w/ the edge of the tub. Just when I thought we had done a good job w/ baby proofing the house as we have avoided any ouchies for the most part, I’m proven wrong. 4 hours at the hospital, a bag of Cheez-Its and Lays potato chips, and a $150 copay later — we are all fixed up. Thank goodness it was just an abrasion and he didn’t need any stitches.
Who needs to bungee jump, go sky diving, or speed race when you’ve got a crazy toddler at home? That alone is enough of an adrenaline rush that this mama will ever need.
