Matt's slice

Matt and Ash were running around as the kids ALWAYS do. But, Matt's pants were a bit long. Ash accidentally stepped on them, and he slipped and fell. He hit just the right spot on the floor and sliced open his chin. It was GROSS. I don't like to deal with hospital emergency rooms or stitches. I prefer the butterfly method. So, I called Virginia over to help with the other kids so I can patch up Matt. Here is the 'battle wound' as we are calling it, and the butterfly.

OUCH! That was a nasty cut. Are you sure it will heal alright without some stitches? Perhaps your regular pediatrician could do that in their office?

We are going to be in Jersey this weekend and would love to see you guys.

Wow! David got a cut like that when he was 2. He tended to dive on the floor, it was bound to happen. It happened at his daycare so, we took him to the e.r. It took about 2 hours and a lot of screaming, before he got stitches. About a week later, he split it open again. This time we home mended it. He still has a little scar from it. Smart to not mess with the hospital Whit.

well, luckily the scar will be awesome, but not on his face. it's a good one, that's for sure.
