What not to do
Want to know why it's not a good idea to sit on a bench with your hands and your feet tucked into your sweater?
Because this cute boy......
Might turn into this boy.....
Teagan did a faceplant right off the dining room bench. Unfortunately, since he thought it was a good idea to sit there with his arms and his legs tucked up into his sweater, he had nothing to catch himself with besides his face. It's hard to hold back the tears when you listen to the screams of your child. And the nurse in me all but disappeared as I fought off the dizziness while watching blood poor from my child's nose. His dad swore he must have broken his nose. It was so flat when he first picked him up and like I said, the blood just poored from it.As if that wasn't bad enough, he managed to bust his lower lip open on his teeth. I don't think he broke it. I mean, it would hurt more if he did, right? I don't know, but it sure is swollen right across the bridge and you can tell around his right eye is turning a little purple and is swollen. Remember the last major fall this kid had? Check out the scar above his right eye that required 30 stitches.
This pic is actually from the next morning. The day of the event it was pretty ugly. The poor kid looks like a prize fighter. I asked him if Mommy punched him in the nose and he said "you would never do that." Good answer since he has to go to school tomorrow and there may be some questions.
