ER is my new Disneyland

Kaylee and I just got home from the ER. She has a laceration on her forehead between her eyebrows from falling off a chair again.

I'm still panicking even though she only had the laceration Dermabonded closed.

Why do I feel like a terrible mom?

I don't know if I can take this Single Motherhood anymore.

Re: ER is my new Disneyland

Ds1 has a scar above his right eye from smacking it in the bathtub around 9 months old. He's 3.5yo now and you can still plainly see it. He's got another one on his lip from falling out of a laundry basket and hitting the metal bedframe (ouch!). The ER doc said it was nothing but a surface scratch (because it was so small, they didn't bother really even looking)...but it was deep and you can see it (the scar) when he smiles now.

It happens and it doesn't make you a bad mommy

Here's the above-the-eye injury that is now scarred

3 little girls... 3 forehead head lacs... 3 dermabond experiences... 3 nice scars... I've BTDT 3 times over. Just waiting for #4. It's practically inevitable.
Welcome to motherhood!
