I knew it was going to happen sooner or later...

I have always wondered when our first trip to
the emergency room would be.
I tried not to think about it too much but
when you are a parent you know it is most likely going
to happen. Especially when you have two kids.
You hear friends talking about their first visits.
You know it is coming.
Today was our day...
I kind of always knew it would be Ruby.
I didn't think that I would be at the gym when it happened.
I also didn't think that I would very nearly pass
out as I watched them stitch her up.
I didn't think that I would end up sitting with my head
between my legs sweating and hoping that I could just keep
it about her and not me.
I also, had no idea that Wade would be so
interested in all of it.
Today was kind of crazy.
4 stitches later we are home.
I was certain that starting school would be
the biggest event of this week.
I think I was wrong.

Stressful to say the least. Poor cuddle bunny.

Oh! So sorry!! The image of you getting woozy made me chuckle--but with empathy. I often wish I had a nursing degree now that I'm a mom. I hope you all are doing much, much better and kindergarten starts smoooothly.
