Yesterday after Micah's piano lesson Micah and Jacob were playing in the backyard at Jennifer's and Micah was doing some trick on the scooter and somehow the scooter handle cut Jacob's head open. It was not a big cut and it hardly bled, so I really debated taking him in to urgent care. I finally decided I would take him only because of how open it looked. Jacob was very scared that he'd have to get stitches. I told him he probably would not have to because it was small. I thought they might put a butterfly on it or some of that glue they use now. I was wrong. They no longer stitch things, they staple. He got one little staple. The Doctor, who was very young, was very nice and got Jake on the table and cleaned him up and clicked it closed without even mentioning what had to be done. Jacob wailed for awhile and then was over the pain part of it. He doesn't want anyone to know he has a staple in his head, he wants me to delete the picture I took and forbids us to speak of it. He thinks people will make fun of it or say how gross or bad it is and it will scare him. Hw went to school today and told Micah not to tell anyone at school about it.
I took Peyt to the doctor this morning and she had to get a steroid shot. Tyler and I were up with her all night, literally. She's got croup and wants to be in my arms and no where else. I am trying to enjoy this because she is not a cuddler usually and I am now getting lots of love from her. I just think of all my chores piling up and all that I'm not getting done. I am sleep deprived and grouchy and emotional, but like they say, babies don't keep! This morning she fell asleep on Ben's chest and I've seen little else in my life more precious than that.
Outside the Urgent Care, Jacob is upset with me for photographing his stapled head.
This morning before the doctor's visit, my two sweet babies. Peyton is so loved by her big brothers!
On the same note, another event...Our closet was emptied of clothing when I got home and the washer and dryer were going and there were many other piles waiting to be washed because Ty went to get dressed for work and there were red ants all over our clothes and in the bag of dog food we keep in our closet, great, as if we didn't have enough to deal with! When it rains it pours!
