Aiden Hospital

Remember when I wrote THIS post and these words: "In our house, the luxury of learning to walk slowly is not an option. Not because we're drill sergeants or because we have walking boot camps set up in our house. No. Worse. We have tile. In our house, it's a sink or swim type of walking approach. If you don't learn quickly, you will be scarred for life with bumps and bruises and images of tile coming straight at you flashing in your head for weeks. As a mama who is pretty laid back, the tile still scares me. Everyone has heard stories of head traumas that seem relatively low key and end in trips to the hospital...or worse. "

Well, did I foreshadow our lives or what? On Wednesday, October 10th Aiden fell down and this is what he immediately looked like:



I sent these photos minutes afterwards to Mr. Howard (who wasn't home) and my mom with a text that said, "Should I go to emergency?" I got mixed responses. Mr. Howard thought I shouldn't go and my mom thought I should go. I felt pretty strongly that I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I didn't just make sure, so I went ahead and took him.

For the record, Mr. Howard was right. They looked at him for only a few minutes and sent us on our way. But let me tell you, I slept a WHOLE lot better knowing that he didn't have any serious damage. Poor little guy. In the meantime, we've decided that Isabella isn't delayed in walking; she's just really SMART. She sees what has happened to her brother and deduced that walking isn't a very smart thing to do and she's decided to pass on the whole experience. 

Can you blame her...
