Adventures in child-rearing

Last night, I had both kids in the bathroom while I was preparing to cut Kevin’s hair. I had just sat him on the counter when I saw Tasha fall out of the corner of my eye. She screamed like I’d never heard her scream before and saw that she’d fallen between the tub and toilet and had sort of bent in half, obviously bumped her head. My guess was that she’d been standing on the toilet to get something out of the basket of bath things that sit on the toilet tank and lost her balance. I picked her up to console her and to my horror, found blood all over my hand when I pulled it away! =( We took her to the ER that is just down the street and they gave her two staples to close the wound. She was such a trooper, hardly crying at all, despite the fact that she had nothing to numb the stapling. They had us in and out in about 40 minutes and even gave the kids a toy each to take home. Sigh…… two trips to the ER this year for Tasha…I decided I don’t wanna go again unless we’re visiting a friend who’s had a baby or something!

Other than getting up once in the night to tell us that her head hurt, she’s handled it great. No pain all day today!
