Gentry’s worst day ever (and mine)

May 31, 2007

Starting yesterday morning he rolled off the changing table (I was standing in front of him but he went around me). I caught him before he hit the floor but he did bang the table a bit.

Then he was playing in an empty kitchen cabinet and he fell out face first onto the the tile floor. He has a bruise on the tip of his nose now.

Last night while we ate dinner, he was playing with some pots and pans. One of them crashed to the floor and scared him, he jumped and slammed into the door. He has a scratch on the bridge of his nose.

The the big one…playing in the bath, he used the side of the tub to stand up. He started to tip out so I nudged his shoulders back in, his feet slipped, his chin clocked the side of the tub, and his two bottom teeth busted through his top gum. His mouth was full of blood, it was bad.

And to top it all off his eczema is horrible from being outside so much this weekend. His skin looks like leather.

So needless to say he was dosed with orajel, tylenol, and benadryl before bed. I guess you could say that I was not a great mom yesterday…I kinda sucked.

    Who caught him before he fell on the floor after falling off the changing table?

    Who put ice on tip of his nose and a bandaid on the bridge of his nose?

    Who was there pick him up to comfort him after falling out the bath tub?

    Who drugged him up with orajel, tylenol, and benadryl? (Wait that sounds bad…but you know what I mean)

    See where I’m going with this?
