On the way to the ER, all I could hear in my backseat was a conversation about how "Mama bled into dinner." Lovely

On July 28th, I was home with the kids by myself, cooking, when I decided it'd be a good idea to get into a fight with a can of black beans. Guess who won? I'll give you a hint. It wasn't me.

It resulted in an ER visit and six stitches, which was a bummer - because I've been really looking forward to swimming at my mom's during these much warmer mornings (100 degrees plus!). But it could have been MUCH worse. Thankfully Mr. Howard was very close to the house, so he was able to drive us to the emergency and my mom was able to pick up the kids, so that we didn't have to also watch them.

The kids really only had two concerns about the fact that blood was pouring from my hand. (1) What they were going to have for dinner now that "Mama bled into the dinner." (seriously this was their conversation in the car on the way to the hospital). And (2) Was I going to have to have a shot? Because in the world of 3 and 5-year-olds, the extent of a "horrible" doctor visit is whether or not you have to have a shot. Can you imagine if they really understood what stitches were?!?

P.S. I found our electric can opener and have vowed to only use it from now on. I should never have tried to pry open the can with my bare hands. Lesson learned.

Ouch! Ouch! I'm so sorry! I cut my finger in the kitchen once, and had the home alone debate of needing a couple stitches in it. Not fun. And you had three kiddos home with you! Glad Luke and Mom were nearby. Poor thing!

WOW that is a bad cut from a can! I have gotten in those fights before also and won, but I think I will take this as a lesson learned from someone else and use my electric also:) Hopefully it will heal fast and you will still get in some pool time before the warm weather ends.

It has already mostly healed! Thank goodness I was off for the summer, when it happened and had a few weeks before work started. So I'll go into the year being able to use both hands! Lots of blessings in the timings, but boy did it smart!

I hate that debate. Usually I decide wrong. But this time I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it'd need stitches when I saw how deep it was. I hate going in, though, when they use that super glue. I'm like, I paid $500 for you to superglue my kid's cut?!? Grrrr.
