Last night as a two year old…..

Well, Gavin decided he needed to have some excitement for the last night of him being a two year old.  As we were just about to finish bath time and head to bed, he slipped in the tub and cut open his chin.  Thankfully, it was not a big cut, but I knew he needed a few stitches.  So, I loaded him and Kayla in the car, dropped Kayla off at my parents and headed down to the ER.  (For the second time in less than 6 weeks!!)

He got about four or five stitches an they put a steri strip over it so that he wouldn’t be able to pull the sutures out. IMG_0801 I thought we deserved some Steak and Shake on the way home.  I did this with Mikayla when she broke her arm.  I think it is a nice tradition.  Hopefully, we don’t have to make it a frequent tradition, though…. I don’t think my waist line could handle it!

Oh, Gavin. I had no idea. And an ER "tradition" !? Please don't make it too often!
