I had another scary mommy moment today. And, from what I hear, I have many more down the road. Especially with two boys.
This morning we had an appointment to be at the pediatrician's office at 9:30. The boys were both scheduled to get a flu shot and it would be my first time taking them by myself. My plan was to have Judah eat breakfast while I got Samuel and myself ready to go. Judah didn't want to sit in his booster, so I let him sit in "mama's seat." As I was feeding Samuel, Judah fell backwards on the floor and started crying. I set Samuel down and picked up Judah. It took me a few minutes to realize his little chin was bleeding and it looked pretty bad. I stayed calm (at least calm for me) and called Eric. I put neosporin on his chin, along with a cotton ball and a bandaid. Fortunately for Judah (or maybe it's for me) we were already on our way to Dr. Stanley's. When we got there both nurses checked out his chin and finally decided to have the doctor come look. He ended up needing to glue it together. He said in the past it would have needed a stich, but fortunately they have this surgical glue type stuff. Stiches would have been painful and difficult, but the glue was super easy with no pain at all. Judah did such a good job that he got TWO stickers and two bandaids (one for the shot, one for the chin).
*I just reread that entry and it's pretty incoherent. Sorry. I'm super tired and don't feel like filling in all of the details. I've had a LONG day. Samuel napped from 11-12 and woke up just in time for lunch (ha!), then Judah napped from 1-3. Both Eric and I tried several time to get Samuel to go back down for a nap, but with no luck. He just passed out for the night at 8:30. This is after waking up several times in the night. I know I need to teach him to sleep, but I seriously HATE hearing him cry. There is nothing I hate worse than my babies crying. So, someone buy me a book- "The Baby Whisperer" or "The No Cry Sleep Solution," that's what I need...
But, I didn't manage to get some adorable pics of the boys today. And, that's all that really matters, right?
