First Day of Summer Vacation= Trip #1 To The Emergency Room

This past weekend my children and I attended our town carnival which included a BMX stunt bike show. We go every year and this show is our favorite part. It is simply amazing to see these guys do the tricks that they do and if you've never seen one I would recommend it. So it was one of those afternoons where the boys were constantly arguing and wrestling and driving me crazy. So I sent them all outside.

I have 3 sons and 1 daughter. Each of my children is so amazingly different from the next if I hadn't birthed them all myself I would demand a Maternity test. lol

About 30 minutes into play my middle son came in hoping on one foot, it appeared he had been stung by a bee. He was quite upset, though not crying and his foot was swelling. I was busy frying up some dinner so I had one of the other kids research "home remedies for bee stings" on the internet for a cure. We found one, used it and moved on. Disaster dodged. Success! Back outside they all went.

My two older sons are teenagers and one of them is your A-Typical type. Always right, always persuading the littler one to do stuff he is secretly scared to do etc. Well at around 7pm I was doing my window check when I noticed all three boys walking towards the front door, the littlest holding his chin. I thought to myself..."What now?" When I opened the door to ask what had happened he removed his hand to reveal a gaping bleeding gash in his chin.

Apparently he was trying out one of the tricks he had seen this weekend and came crashing down chin first right into the edge of the handlebars creating a nice little gash in his chin that required 3 stitches. If this is what summer has in store for me I am doomed.


  1. Kids! Gotta love 'em, because you can't shoot 'em!

    Forget Summer...this is what the rest of your life will become. I speak from experience!

  2. Thanks for the heads up...I have two teenagers that have only had one injury between the two of them but I think this third one's the charm.
