More Stitches?




Last night, Jeff and I were all excited to put the kiddos to sleep and watch Biggest Loser together. Sydney was in her bed and wanted to say the prayer. Of course she can't just say a prayer kneeling on her bed or floor like me and Jeff. She always says it kneeling on her headboard of her bed. I'm not even sure how she does it considering her headboard is about 3 inches wide. And even while she prays she continues to move around like a monkey but that is normal for a 3 year old, right?....I'm not really sure. So while she is praying, we hear a big thud and instant crying. She fell off her bed somehow (my eyes were actually closed this time) and hit her forehead on the corner of her dresser; thus, sending her to the ER with bloody PJ's on. I stayed home because Jordyn was already asleep. I immediately moved the dresser by myself to the other side of her room, away from her bed. At one point, Jeff called me giving me an update and I hear him say, "I gotta go..... Sydney stop climbing around. You have to stay on my lap, " click and hangs up. Only Sydney has a head injury and continues to climb around like nothing happened. Now I'm determined to put her in gymnastics so she can swing, jump, flip, whatever her little body can do in a safe place for her to let off her dare-devilish...or clumsy tendencies.

Lauren,
I am so sorry! What a brave little girl! I can relate to the fidgeting during prayers. I seriously don't think Jackson knows how to sit still for longer than a minute. When he is praying he is rocking, jumping, you name it! By the way are you still having trouble getting on my blog. Maybe just type in the address theoliverfamilyblog.blogspot.com

By the way, I think all three year olds are restless during the prayer. I am impressed that you had your eyes closed. I have gotten so used to having mine open, I sometimes find them open during a prayer with just my husband and I. :) Then I just start laughing.

Oh no! Poor thing. Well she's getting to be an old pro at the emergency room thing. For sure, gymnastics for that girl! :)

Ah, poor Sydney! That looks like it hurts! I don't think three year olds ever really do hold still. Even when they have head wounds that need stitching.:)
