Oh the DRAMA!!!!

Yesterday while on a walk, Andrew sustained his worst injury to date...

It was HORRIBLE!!!!:)

This will be kinda long, but I think it's funny. Here goes. I need to preface this by saying that the post office is about a mile and a half away, about a half a mile of it straight up! and with both boys in the stroller, it's about 70 pounds, so by the time this all happened, I was HOT and TIRED!!Yesterday, the boys and I decided to go for a walk to the post office, on the way there Andrew said he had to go potty, he said he could wait so, we get to the post office and I'm getting our packages ready to mail when he reminds me that he need to go BAD!! So, I ask if they have a bathroom, NOPE!! What post office doesn't have a bathroom? They say to go to the restraunt across the street, I figure it's just across the street, I won't put him back inthe stroller, well, guess what, no public restrooms, ok, the next building then, a Dr. Office, NOPE no luck again, so, here I am hurrying around, and getting frustrated that nobody would have a public bathroom! Andrew's trying to keep up and he had worn flip flops, he was doing great too. Then, I spotted it, a 7-Eleven, I think, maybe I should put him in the stroller, just in case, no, it's just across the street, he'll be ok. Then it happened, just before we get to 7-Eleven, he trips and falls!!!! He scrapes his knee and foot. I feel horrible and I'm praying that 7-Eleven will have a bathroom, they didn't have a public one, but the really nice lady behind the counter saw we were in need and let us use theres. FINALLY! Unfortunately the stroller won't fit into their back room, so I take Benjamin out and leave the stroller in the store and now I'm struggling with him too. He's such a laid back kid. Andrew's crying the whole time because his knee hurts, then he doesn't see the sink and he's worried he won't be able to wash his hands when he's done. I calm him down, assure him there was sink outside the door and tell him I'll also clean up his knee. This calms him a little. He washes up, I clean him up as best I could and when we get everyone back in the stroller we bump and crash our way out. SO EMBARRASING!! We make it safely out, with Andrew still crying. And I realize that we still have to go back to the post office. UGG!Andrew insists he needs Daddy to look at his owie, well, I realize it is about lunch time and we're only about a 20minute walk to the hospital, I'll deal with the post office another time. So, we head to the hospital. It was a nice walk, Everett has a REALLY nice downtown area and so the walk was actually enjoyable, except for the few wails I'd get from Andrew every now and then. I finally catch on that these crys come after a breeze and I realize that the cool breeze blowing on his fresh wound probably didn't feel very good. So, I give him his hat to cover his knee with and we enjoy the rest of our walk,with the occasional whine from Benjamin because it's his nap time..oops, to the hospital so that daddy can look at his knee. We make it safely to the hospital and when Bob goes to look at his knee, he refuses, he will NOT move his hat because his hat is protecting his knee. After MUCH dicussion, Bob is able to look at it, it looked worse than it really was, unfortunatley I didn't have my camera then, oh how I wish I did. Andrew refused anything Bob offered him. He consented finnaly to the ace bandage that you see in the above picture. All these pictures were taken during the drama last night after his bath ;) Those are the pictures that follow. We couldn't help but giggle last night, he was being SO Dramatic!! Even today he's been hobbling around, not wanting anything to touch his knee. I love him:)



Yup, this is what all the fuss was about, Andrew's worst injury to date. How horrible;)

I can see that the ace bandage was a necessity! That wound is almost going to take his knee off! ;)

That is soo something that would happen to me and the kids. ;) Being at the post office, trying to find a bathroom with no luck and then someone falling and scraping their knee and then all the chaos in a 7-11. Yep. I'm actually suprised that hasn't happened to me yet, but I'm sure it will at some point. Too funny!!
