The best laid plans...

You know when you have a to do list for the day & inevitably you hear a loud bang, thump or whack coming from the other room??? Well that was our day today! Morgan was hanging on on of the towel hooks in the bathroom upstairs (because of course it could hold her weight!!!), and broke the metal hook. This sent her crashing down to the tile floor which ensued the loud whack and crying!
She came and found me (thus a test of how badly they are hurt... if they can make it to mom... it must not be too bad!!!), and I gave her a love, she turned to leave the room and I SAW THE BLOOD!!! We calmly went into the bathroom to see how bad it was... Yep, a few stitches were needed...
This is one of the main reasons for the lengthy story... if you are squeamish DO NOT SCROLL DOWN!!!!!
THREE staples were all that were needed. None of our kids have actually had staples before... they were kinda cool.
It is pretty bad though when tears are avoided because of the promise of being featured on the BLOG!!! She will have very scary hair tomorrow cause she cannot get it wet for 24 hrs. My guess is a pony tail in the back will do the trick!

Erin and I were wondering if the pony tail in the first picture is before or after the staples?

This is so gross/awesome!!!

Morgan, take some tylenol and I hope you can sleep tonight!

Tooo bad the staples are not more visable. They would have been a really cool addition to a Halloween costume!!!!!

Sorry Morgan it looks like it really hurts

So what did she actually hit her head on to cut it open. The metal hook or the countertop? I am with Laura. How cool would that have been on the side of your face and you could have been frankensteins bride!!! It will leave an awful scar though. You'll never be able to have a baldie haircut. Thank heavens your a girl with such pretty hair. Hope you get feeling better!
