First Trip to the ER

Can't believe with 4 kids we hadn't been to the ER yet. Owen decided to bust open his head on a closet door as he was racing to go brush his teeth. I was minutes away from having all the kids in bed and quiet time for myself. Erik was working late and wasn't home, so I didn't have a second opinion on whether or not it merited a trip to the hospital. I decided it was a deep enough gash, and, luckily, one of my friends was able to come sit with the other munchkins so I didn't have to bring them all with me.

Owen thought the ER was great. He got his own TV. His dad came in later with some french fries for him and he had 100% of his mom's attention. 2 stitches later we were home and he didn't seem to mind at all. Erik thinks he'd bust open his head again if he could just for the attention. Don't judge us. -Angela

That is amazing that that is the first time you have been to the ER. Cross your fingers that will be the last.

We just had our first too! We wern't home and Cailyn screamed the whole time. She opened her head when a pole came crashing down on her. It was ugly. But I'm sure not the last of owee's we'll see!!! Hope he's feeling better!!

Poor guy, and poor mom, it's so hard when your kids are hurt. We had our first real ER visit this summer as well.

Good luck on not having another visit!

you know a mother-son outing would be a whole lot cheaper.
