So...my son is a super-hyper, never-stopping, 100MPH kinda kid. I've been reassured by friends and family that it's a boy thing, and of course, my little girl is laid-back and for the most part, relatively calm.
Last night, as he was running through the kitchen, bouncing into walls and crawling across the ceiling, he slipped and banged his chin right on the corner of one of the kitchen chairs...HARD. After a few stray tears and some ice, I was able to survey the damage.
Yes. I had multiple heart attacks, but was glad it wasn't worse. It's so dark, though, that it looks like he has ink on his chin! We keep a 'boo-boo book' where we put pictures of his various nicks and scrapes. Papa Muffin started this (why do boys think injuries are 'cool') so my son would be able to look fondly back and remember every one of his mishaps. *rolls eyes*
In fact, even during ER trips (nothing too serious, by the way), he's there, snapping the camera. What is it about boys? Are they just completely and totally fearless? This one wasn't the scariest for me. It was about a month ago when my son cut his foot wide open on a shard of glass and was bleeding copious amounts - or at least it looked like copious amounts to me! Poor mothers - we get a very regular heart-check when we have sons, don't we? What has been your scariest 'boo-boo' and is (are) your son (kids) the same way?
