His first injury

Behold the faucet.


The faucet that he loves!  What can I say?  He and that faucet are like a moth to flame.


So I liked the faucet, too.  For my little boy’s sake.


Until it did this to him.


I didn’t even see how it happened, but both our hearts broke after it did.


Fortunately, Scooters bounced back like nothing had happened and healed very quickly after that day.


But I did not bounce back like nothing had happened and my heart did not heal very quickly after that day.

And now.

The faucet is gone.  Forevermore masked by a lovely, inflatable frog.

That will never hurt my son again.


Oh, Scooty-tots!!  I’m so sorry.  :(

  1. Oh that is so sad! You hate to see their perfect little faces marred in any way – even though I’m sure it will heal up just fine. I’m glad he’s ok!

  2. Ouch poor Scooters, I love how you fixed the problem.
    Scooters my my your have grown so much since my last visit.
