A strange title perhaps, but these three seemingly unrelated things have dominated my life for the past two weeks.
Third, STITCHES. My boy keeps me in stitches all right, but not always the laughing kind. Yup, Grayson had to get stitches this week. I don’t know how he managed it, but he fell and cracked his head against a vase/planter at his dayhome on Monday. Poor Mel (our lovely careiver) called me and said “Your son needs stitches!” We both rushed to meet at the Alberta Children’s Hospital where after being triaged and getting freezing put on his head, he got his 5 stitches. He screamed blue-bloody murder while it was being done, but he was a trooper and afterwards got his much-promised yellow popsicle. Since then he has complained that his “stitch” hurts and “I no like my stitch mommy”. Poor guy…I’m sure it’s itchy and sore, and it’s hard to explain to a three year old why you can’t touch it or scratch it. His “stitch” will come out on Tuesday, so hopefully he will feel much better then. Here he is at the hospital…bandaged up “before” and with the stitches “after”. Poor little guy!
But with all these crazy things going on,we’re still trucking along. Sam is getting fatter and cuter each day (and sleeping 9 hours a night now!!!!!!)
…and all my boys are smiling. Lucky lucky me!
I didn’t get a lot of scrapping done in August, but I am looking forward to September with Stacy J.’s challenge of scrapping your everyday momets everyday! Yup, we’re making a “30 Days Hath September” Album with a layout for every day. I’ll try to post as many as I can, but if I just get them done I will be happy! It’s the final project in our Have More Fun class. I would definitely recommend taking a class from BPS…it has been a great learning experience as well as a wonderful opportunity to meet great scrapbookers from all over the world online. Love it!
