Casualities of Childhood

Yesterday my John James Audobon wannabee, Mabry, paid the price of inquisitiveness as she traipsed through the woods with Cayli. Apparently Cayli pulled down a tree limb to take a closer look at it when it fell from the tree and sliced part of the back of Mabry's head.

It was really a simple scalp injury but it sure it bleed. So I packed up all 4 kids (and a bunch of crackers/cars/books/iTouch to keep Micah occupied) and headed to Urgent Care.

This was our third visit to urgent care in the past 5 months and the first not involving Micah. We see them so much, the staff is almost like family. And they were happy to see someone other than Micah.

Micah's first visit was back in November when he danced right off the table and busted the back of his head. That required 4 staples.

His second visit was last month when he tripped on the top of some playground equipment while jumping to Matt. He fell face-first in a pile of rocks. Nothing required stitches but his face was messed up for a bit.

Fortunately Mabry only needed a single staple to help heal her wound. We left with the medical staff saying, "See you soon!" They know it's only a matter of time before we return--because childhood has its consequences for the active & curious kids.

A minor brush with blood sure can calm a kid. Here is Mabry nursing her headache by watching her favorite movie, Narnia:

A moon phase indicator is designed to track the roughly replica watches of the moon between its waxing and waning phases. With that said, the moon phase indicator is a beautiful feature integrated into many fine 2018 replica watchess, and for this reason, we see it a lot in the more niche world of luxury 2018 replica watches sale that market themselves on emotionally driven aesthetics. I must say that I would not have guessed this complication to be of much interest. Attached to the case is a matching brown alligator strap. I think rolex replica sale would also look good with a black strap, assuming you wanted to match the 2018 breitling replica sale to a darker wardrobe of clothing. The fact that it only came on a leather strap kept the watch from breaking through to a wider replica watches uk segment, but I would be surprised if you start to see a lot more of them now.
