Brave again

Well, today Parker had yet another reason to summon up his courage: a gaping gash in his head! Apparently Skull had a close encounter with Cabinet this morning, and the result was a shiny new staple. With the staple came stickers and a new toy for bravery, so the boy is already back to his happy, energetic self. I'll spare you the photos because pretty it isn't. Did anyone warn me just how different raising a male would be?!

Wow, I feel your pain. Our son Keaton took a flying leap and landed on the tile floor. He got 3 stitches in his chin. Tell me raising a girl will be a little less eventful....:)
Hope it heals well!

Our daughter is actually the non-graceful child in our family! Stitches were the worst thing I've ever had to do with one of my children. I thought when Xavier had to get a kisses wrapped pulled from his nose was awful, but it was nothing compared to Naia needing three stitches from falling off a skateboard!

Oh my! I hope he is feeling better. Little boys are something! :)

Scary! Nothing like that has ever happened to the girls, but growing up with four brothers, there were many a trip to get stitches! It must be a boy thing!

You should move closer to a hospital. Our boys got lots of stitches....then we moved closer to the hospital and they haven't had a stitch in 3 years.
