A Bad 2 Hours

4:30 PM - Christi and I are in our bedroom talking and getting ready to leave for small group and we hear a blood curdling scream from the living room. I go into the living room to find Anna crying by the rocker, she has a HUGE gash on her leg.

4:45 PM - As I am getting 2 sippies out of the truck we are driving I hear another scream behind me. As I climb out of the truck I see Anna face planted at the bottom of our porch lying in the gravel limestone. Her face was all bruised and scratched up. She looks like she was on the losing end of a bad bar fight.

6:10PM - By this time we have arrived at our friends house and we are having small group when we here a BAM followed by several small kthuds, culminating in another bout of screaming. At this point she has pulled a shelf full of nick nacks over onto herself. The shelf is lying on her head when we arrive a few seconds after the event.

So my poor little baby girl has a gash, a scratched up swollen face and big knot on her little forehead. Let me tell you, it was a bad 2 hours!!!

How awful! I know it breaks my heart when one of my children gets hurt! We've been to the emergency room 3 times in 5 years, and a year and a half ago, we had a 4 day stay in the hospital with Zoe following a car accident. She was 19 months old. Scary stuff!

You spelled my name wrong :) It's NIKI - one k, no c. Short for Nikalas, with one k, and no c. I forgive you. lol
