Mini-me loves to dance. She really thinks she is a beautiful ballerina, leaping and prancing about. Sadly, that illusion crumbled last night as her clumsy 3-year old self took over and crashed into a table. She hit her forhead pretty hard and had to go to the ER for stitches. She was a champ. She cried a little when they took the bandaid off, but that was because it was stuck to a little bit of her hair. The nurse put her in a papoose, so that Mini-me wouldn't roll or kick or bite, and then kept asking her about princesses to distract her. The PA, Bob, put liquid stitches on the wound and within minutes she was all better. Nurse Laurie gave her a popsicle and a Barbie sticker and sent us on our way. It may be a little tender today, but Mini-me says it feels fine. Now all of our kids have visited the ER. I think one visit a piece is plenty, don't you?

We're glad MM is feeling better. And yes, one visit each to the ER would normally be quite enough. You have to remember, however, who the grandparents on Dad's side are: We recall singlehandly supporting the Arlington ERs with our multiple visits per child. It must be in the genes. Good luck!
