Today was Gracie’s birthday. For her birthday she had some special friends over and they gave her this really neat knife they found from a 2nd hand store. It was really cool! So later on in the day, Gracie comes up to me and says:
“Mom, I have tried the best I can but I cant seem to get my finger to stop bleeding.“
That surprised me. She had been bleeding through bandages, apparently, but I never knew she cut herself in the first place. I look at it and all I could say was, “Gracie- that needs stitches. Bandaids wont stop that from bleeding.”
So off to the ER we went, posse in tow. This is how it went:
“What’s with all this giggling back here? This is an ER, a place for wailing and gnashing of teeth- not happiness!”
When the doctors came in, they looked at the iodine written name and said, “Oh what happened here?”
“Sorry I spilled a little….”
The verdict? “this was the BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY I’ve ever been to!” Gracie’s friends said.
