The miracle cure

Remember when I said that I was going to the library on Monday? Well, I didn't actually get around to visiting the library until last night. All is right with the world, because they found the books that I had previously returned. What a relief!

When we got home, the kids wanted to play in the front yard. Izzy was running up and down the sidewalk, while Porgie begged me to read the library books. While reading a book about cows, I heard a loud thud. I looked up and seen my baby boy laying face down on the concrete. My heart was pounding ferociously as I raced to pick him up. He was trying to scream, but he was in so much pain that the sound was caught in his throat. He was writhing in my arms, as I carried him inside the house.

After calming Izzy down, I noticed that he was bleeding. My baby boy scraped up his forehead pretty bad...
Fortunately, there isn't much that band-aids and ice cream can't cure...

oooh, my throat gets all closed up reading that because I have TOTALLY felt that feeling where you're totally panicked because WHY AREN'T THEY CRYING??!!!

So glad everything is ok now! This is an excellent excuse to always have ice cream in the house....

Dude you need some Sponge Bob bandaids! Cole gets more excited about bandaids than pretty much anything else. He also will NOT eat ice cream... wtf. I can't bribe him with ANYTHING!! Woe is me.

Oh, I HATE that feeling that you get in your stomach when something bad happens to your baby!

And then the pain that's so intense they can't get the cry out!! OMG. That's SO SCARY!!

Glad he's okay, though. And YUM on the ice cream! Now you need cartoon bandaids! :)

I swear boys just get hurt daily and sometimes 15 times a day. I have a feeling my Sam will be the same way though. He is still adorable!
