You should see the other guy...



There is nothing like seeing your little "baby" cry and say "no thank you Mr. Doctor" when she is getting stitched up...

Maddie and I had quite the afternoon at Kohl's, to say the least. We were putting the cart away at the exit of the Alpine Kohl's, when (I swear in SLOW MOTION) I saw Maddie trip, while getting her foot caught on the cart and go head (really lip first) first into the corner of a manikin show case stand. At that moment, I knew there were stitches if not worse in our near future. The amount of blood is what scared her (and me) the most I think...and for all of you who know out much Maddie hates getting dirty...that was a huge issue. :) MY POOR BABY!! Seriously, I did fight the tears while I was holding her and people hustled around me. It's amazing how "mom's" come out of the wood work when things like this happen. I even had a mom offer to drive us down to the hospital so I could sit with her. :) SO.....................

I took some advise from another Mom that helped me and went directly to the ER because I didn't want Maddie to have some nut sowing her lip all funky and I know the Devos Children's Hospital ER is the best. Tom met us down there and we got right in. Maddie was SOOOO brave while getting literally strapped down. They have T.V.s in each of the rooms and she even asked to watch Star Wars...so we know she was going to live. ;) The great staff of course took care of her, putting three stitches in her little lip. The Doctor said she shouldn't have a scar...let's pray.

She looks like a little scrapper and we taught her to say "you should see the other guy." Just in time for her third birthday, three for three. ;)
