"In this corner...Logan's beautiful head!"
"Woohoo!" "Logan's head rocks!" "Yeah!" "You can do it!"
"And in this corner...an unassuming park bench!"
"Boo!" "You suck!" "Hissssss..."
As a mom of two rough and tumble kind of boys, it was just a matter of time before one of them got hurt. I guess it's most surprising that it hadn't happened yet.
Logan's head met it's match earlier this week in a metal playground bench. It was a knockout. Luckily one of the moms at Jack and Logan's school is a pediatric hospital nurse so she was help to help clean up Logan and calm me down. I had to make a split-second decision whether to go to the ER or our pediatrician.
We decided to head take our chances at the pediatrician. She told us what our options were at her office (steri-strips) and the ER (stitches or surgical glue). When I asked her opinion, she asked whether we were planning on a career in Hollywood for Logan. I laughed...and she said, "no, really, do you plan on him being a model or actor?" (Only in California!) I decided that scars add character and stayed at her office so Logan could be spared the pain (physically and emotionally) of the ER.
He's had the steri-strips on for a week already. Tomorrow I'll get to see the real damage...
Obviously, the injury hasn't affected his spirit! ;)
