School's out for summer!!!
Yee-haw! Nothin' I love more 'an picking my kiddos up from their last day of school...I LOVE summer vacation! Nothin' my kids love more 'an starting summer vacation!
'Cept, when one of them doesn't even make it into the house from the car ride home and needs to get stitches.
Poor, E. Dub...was so excited, he was barrelin' into the house, tripped on the outside step, and smashed his chinny chin chin on the (the nasty, dirty) metal part of the door frame. I knew immediately, by the type of breath-holding cry escaping his mouth, that this was serious.
Sho 'nuff, inbetween gasps for air, he got out, "tripped" and "tongue"...I looked in his mouth and saw blood, however, when he had his head tipped back, I got a glimpse of the gaping wound on his chin.
Luckily (or, more appropriately, "A God thing") one of my best friends had just arrived to hang out for a bit. I ran around like a chicken with it's head cut off for a few moments before she calmly shoo'd me off to the clinic.
Four stitches later and we were sent on our merry little way.
What a great start to summer vacation, huh?
