Well I might as well tell this story since according to Mommy, "it happened on my watch" last Sunday.
We were swimming at my parents when it was time for Laney to come out and get dressed in her jammies to go home. Jil stripped her down when taking her out of the hot tub and i wrapped her up in a towel since I knew it was going to be cold in my parents’ house.
Once we walked in the back door I placed Laney down on the hardwood floor so i could grab her diaper and jammies, which were about 2 feet away. As I turned to retrieve these items, Laney decided to take a step and since she didn't know this wasn't going too well being wrapped up in a towel, fell flat on her face and hit her chin on the floor.
As I turned believing the thud I just heard was Laney falling, I noticed the blood on the floor and the tears and screaming started almost instantly. When I snatched her up off the floor I could see the blood running from her chin and thought she’s gonna turn out just like her daddy. For those of you who don't know, I split my chin open 3 times as a kid and got stitches every time.
So after I calmed her down and wiped off the blood i could, i took her out to her mommy to show her the damage to her precious little girl.
After some looking at the cut and a few phone calls we decided to head to the hospital for a professional opinion.
Long story short poor little Laney got strapped down like a mummy and was given 2 stitches to her chin. So there you have it, 2 years old and 2 stitches to her credit already.
