Our Five Ring Circus: I'm putting my boy in a bubble

I'm putting my boy in a bubble

Scar under lip from his tooth going the entire way through. Check.

Cut on head that required staples. Check.

Scarred finger from a treadmill injury that nearly broke it. Check.

Large cut on forehead that required stitches. Check.

Today, less than 3 months after the forehead cut, Dylan decided to fall off the bed and get a gash on his back. Off to the ER we went. After an examination and an X-ray, he managed to walk out, stitch-less, but bandaged up. The lucky little man just narrowly escaped having to get stitched up. He is going to have another large scar to add to the mix.

One accident-prone child. Check!!!

This bubble idea is beginning to sound like a great one.

My little man never seems to get sick, and the few times that he has been sick, it's only been with a runny nose or fever for a day or two, and it's over. The sickest he has ever been was early Monday morning, when he had his very first stomach virus. He threw up for 4 1/2 hours straight, fell asleep, and woke up, bouncing out of bed. I realize it's great that he's so healthy, but he makes up for his lack of common childhood illnesses by getting hurt. Oh, and somehow getting a 4-month-long rash that nobody I know has ever had or heard of.

5 major injuries in my 4 year old's life is entirely too many for this stressed out mommy. My nerves can't handle another ER trip!

  1. Jp had so many injuries during his 4th year too through his 5th year. i don't know why. He also had several stitches that year and countless bumps and bruises and er trips.

    he hasn't had any stitches since then so maybe its the age. They think they can do all this stuff but i guess they are still learning coordination.


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
