Time Heals All Wounds...

Now that she is all healed up, I can laugh (and write) about it. But I was too shaken to take pictures...

Sunday was an interesting day – at least the afternoon while hubby was at the church. I walked into the living room to see J beating the “you know what” out of R. I couldn’t seem to break it up fast enough and soon, R was on the floor in tears and J was sentenced to the rest of the afternoon in his room (which is right next to R & T room)

I sat down to work on my family history, thankful for the reprieve. Thankful T and B were playing so nicely in T’s room. That reprieve lasted about 13.7 seconds when it was broken by a blood curdling scream from B. It was the kind of scream you know you have to go check out – more than a “someone-took-my-doll-and-pounded-her-head-with-a-hammer” scream. This was followed by J yelling for T to stop and T screaming back in tears something I couldn’t understand.

So, apparently T and B had been playing in a box. Harmless enough, right? Well, T decided to close B in the box and do a “magic trick” of making the box disappear by stabbing into it with a pair of large scissors. By the time I got to B she had 3 head wounds. Two on her forehead at the hair line and one in the back of her head. They were relatively small and only the one in the back did a fair amount of bleeding. Thankfully, the injuries were minor -- even though my reaction was not.

Argh! Sounds like your patience was tested big time! Fun-fun!

Wow! Hopefully that kind of magic trick won't happen again. Good thing B is o.k.

Oh wow! It is crazy the games that kids think up, isn't it. Very rarely do they actually think of what the consequences might be! I'm glad it wasn't too serious.

Poor Baby! I'm glad she's okay. I know how scary it is to see your child hurt, no matter how big or small the injury. Good thing for "magic" mom kisses!
