It started out so good...

Yesterday started out as a really good day. I was able to get a run in before A left for work, which is a feat for me since I'm not an early riser. Then Baby G was born happy and healthy. But, it started to go downhill from there. C woke up on the wrong side of the bed and ended up spending a while in time out for kicking the dog for no good reason. Then it all fell apart. Let's just say that I win the "Bad Mom of the Year" award, I won't go into details, but AP cut the very tip of her finger. off. Yes, hubby and I almost had a heart attack when we heard the word "off". I could not tell if it was bad enough to warrant an ER visit or not, but it would.not.stop.bleeding. We did end up going to the ER, but there wsa no skin there to stitch :(...so they just put on neosporin and a little finger sling. I have to give a huge shout out to the Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital. We were in and out, from walking in the door to discharge instructions, in about 40 minutes. The first person that we saw was a doc assessing the situation. It was very calm and organized. They tried to reassure me that I did not qualify for BMOTY (bad mom of the year). Here is the poor girl in the waiting room...

see my hurt finger...



Then this is our happy girl hanging out on the patio at San Antonio Taco Co afterward with her little finger sling. She really is a trooper.
Then we headed to yet a different hospital to go visit Baby G.

Then I thought today would be a better day. I am really in love with this...
but, after I got "Kiss Me Mint" clean, our girl pulled her finger out of the finger sling while crawling and it started bleeding again! just as much as yesterday! So, I attempted the bad mom's version of a finger sling, complete with neosporin.

We follow up with our pediatrician tomorrow to see if it is healing. Then tomorrow night is the long-awaited (at least at our house) "Go, Diego, Go" Live. I am taking C and his friend G, that is G's surprise for being a new big brother and was one of C's b-day presents.

So at least we're not the only ones to have an ER visit :) Xander's stitches come out tomorrow and luckily his eye isn't so puffy anymore!

I hope AP's finger gets better super quick!!
