Accident Report

We have had our first accident...AND it required a band-aid (a transformer band aid)

This morning while I was getting ready for work (and NOT packing Chatham's lunch...we'll come back to that fact) Chatham was playing with some empty ice cube trays in the kitchen and then I heard a crash... My heart stopped at the sound of broken glass....
I turned around to find that my darling son had picked up a jar of baby food and smashed it on the tile- he was covered in turkey with mixed vegetables and there was a red streak on the knee of his pants. I picked him up and just like an adult he immediately put his bloody finger in his mouth. Devin came and took him to the bathroom to wipe it off and bandage it (yes, I took pictures; but it was 6:45 and I didn't upload them yet) we changed his pants and were good to go. For the next few minutes Chatham was walking around shaking his hand trying to get the band aid off- but then I handed him a plastic spoon and the boo boo was forgotten.

I must say the entire situation went much better than I envisioned his first boo-boo. I expected tears (from both of us) and lots of blood, possible bruising, and doctors getting involved. Boys are SO tough!!!!

So back to the packing lunch deal... For the past four months I have been packing Chatham's lunch for school- sippy cups, a bottle for nap time, breakfast, lunch and snack- NOT FUN AT 6:30 in the morning!!!
But today was day one of only packing two sippy cups and a yogurt cup... my son is eating breakfast, lunch, and snack off the daycare menu!! Let's hope it goes well.


  1. I would say that you handled the "accident" very well :)

  2. I'm so glad he's on menu. Now he and Cara can move together when there are two open spots.

  3. Awww, you always hate to see your kids hurt! Im glad he did so well!
