A days work…

6 Comments 05 December 2012

Just when I thought I had re-figured things out again.

As in reinvented the baby’s nap schedule so as to accommodate everyone else’s pick up and drop off routine.

This happened.

I know it is a pretty obscure photo of my little boy nervously sitting in the Doctor’s office awaiting a prognosis on his split chin and loose tooth.

A direct result of falling on an ordinary everyday playground structure step in preschool.

But this is best picture I had the heart to take. I just couldn’t swallow asking him to smile, grimace, or otherwise acknowledge a camera at this moment. Asking him to say cheese, while the possibility of being held down so some stranger can sew his face back together? No.

The good news is a little glue on the chin and an x-ray for the tooth was all he needed for a clean bill of health.

However the stress of trying to reach necessary back-up in order to keep the other three in good hands while I ran between dental and medical offices?

Well, all I can say is thank GOD for cell phones and good friends!

What a reminder of just how much I DO manage in a day. It took three other adults to step in for me.

And as for me. Well ultimately, all I needed at the end of the day was two glasses of Chardonnay.

How does your schedule handle the unexpected?

    Poor little guy! So glad that he’s on the mend. i love the photo!!!! My daughter fell and needed stitched when she was little. She was so stressed that she fell asleep when they were stitching her up as a coping mechanism, I think.

  2. I’m glad you had a network of people you could call and rely on when the unexpected happens – and the unexpected tends to happen with little boys around! :)
