No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Elisabeth gave herself a gash above one eyebrow last night from crashing into the headboard face first when the girls were supposed to be going to sleep.

It's only about 3/4 of an inch long, but it started bleeding again this morning when I checked it, so we had to cancel her speech appointment and make one at the pediatrician to have it checked and dressed properly.

It's always something.

We had hoped Elisabeth might learn a lesson from this experience, but alas - after seeing the pediatrician we ended up going to the emergency room at the local hospital - where Elisabeth tried to jump up and down on the gurney in the emergency examination room. Sigh. It was a few hours too late for stitches by then so they super-glued her forehead cut together and she will be sporting a bandage for a few days. She'll have a small scar, but nothing that her curly hair can't hide if she wants.

Kids just love to jump! Hope your daughter heals up quickly!

Ummm, maybe get a trampoline? Or, you could always tell her, "no."

Forsome reason I missed this post until now - what a horrid experience, that first bleeding gash! I remember my oldest, age 6, falling off a BUNK BED onto a WOODEN FLOOR. Yes, his chin needed stitches. Yes, he still carries a scar under his chin 18 years later.
