This is how I started my day. Anyone who knows me knows I am so not a morning person. You better let me wake in quite and have my cup of coffee before you dump crap in my lap. I rolled out of bed at 615 daycare day. Get the coffee going. Sit on the couch and hear the first hint of a cry. I go look and nothing. Figure it was the tv.
720 rolls around and I hear a shreiking scream. Must have doozed back off once the girls came in. I am exhausted you know. Nate comes hobbling out of the room. He has the tears coming down his face.
“Nate what happened”
“My not know mommy”
I look down and his little knee is all swollen and his leg bruised. Dawns on me that they were rough housing last night. He thinking he was spider man tried to climb the pillars in my living room. Well came down hard. Last night just a little bump on his leg didn’t think anything of it.
“Nate can you starghten you your leg?’
“No it hurts. ”
I sit him on the couch and get him an ice pack. Throw myself in the shower and got ready to go. I knew the doctor would want to see him.
We go in and they decide to xray. Nothing is broken. My heart broke in that xray room. It was very tramatizing. Took four of us to hold him down so we could get the xrays that were needed. All the while he is screaming for his daddy. The one thing I couldn’t produce for him. Mind you all this was before I had my coffee. I had to bite my tongue and remember he was hurting. The high pitch cries were killing me.
They ordered him some nice pain med and meds to help with inflammation. He is quite humours on those drugs. He woke a bit looked at me and told me
“Mom a bear is after me. I am getting a cake and going to work. Don’t worry the bear loses.” Me “a cape and a bear”
Him ” Yes a supered heroed cake”
I had to laugh. The drugs made his speech issue worse. He is finally getting good rest. I hope it goes down in size by Monday. If not we get to go and get an MRI done to check for tears. Poor little bug.
I hope to start my day tomorrow in peace with my coffee.
