So yesterday was a pretty unremarkable day with the kids until… bedtime. I put my kids to sleep some time around 8, but they didn’t go to sleep right away. I wasn’t worried about it though. I had already crossed my fingers and claimed positive affirmations of sleep and knew that the sleep was coming. A few minutes later though I heard a crash. I ran into their room and saw David crying. I picked him up and noticed that he had a big lump on the back of his head and there was blood.
I immediately started screaming and yelled “why?” Then I called my husband who was a few blocks a way and I rushed him to an emergency facility where we stayed for the next several hours.
Parenting clearly has its up and downs but the worst day of any parent’s life is when your child is sick or has been hurt. That’s where we were yesterday and that’s where we are now. Thankfully though, the doctors said he seems fine and according to David (aka Baby Batman) he’s “doing great.”
