Injury Trends

Dan & I have sort of joked that our kids seem to have a "favorite" injury....

Sarah has had 2 broken arms
Emily has had stitches/staples twice
William has burnt himself 3 times

But Andy didn't seem to have one until now....

For the 2nd day in a row, he's fallen and hurt his mouth.  Today, he went into the bathroom and as he was coming out, he tripped and he cried the "I'm really hurt" cry.  I rushed in there expecting broken bones or open wounds needing stitches.  He was holding his chin/mouth.  I scooped him up and brought him out to the couch and then peeked in his mouth.  All I could see was blood.  It didn't seem to be his teeth as it was further inside his mouth, but with all the blood, I couldn't tell.  I sent Emily for a wet washcloth.  Once we applied pressure, I could see two teeth marks in the middle of his tongue.  Poor kid!

OUCH!! Poor lil guy! Gave me shivers to see the pictures---the tongue hurts so bad, too, when you get a blister, or anything like that, so I imagine he's got a fair amount of pain. Just prayed.

I laughed when you mentioned that your kiddos have "favorite" injuries!!
