So this year I will NOT be receiving the mom of the year award...I feel like the worst mom in the world right now:( Austin and I were sitting on the couch this morning doing our normal thing...hanging out and waiting for daddy to call when in a split second Austin stood up on the couch and went from smiling to falling off towards the coffee table. As I stood up to pick him up from off the floor my heart dropped when I saw his head. He had the size of a golf ball on his forehead and it was getting bigger by the second. In a panic, I gathered my things and rushed him to the ER. When I got the ER the wait was too long, so I immediately left and took him to my pediatrician. When I arrived at the doctors office, they got him in right away to asses the damage..Thank GOD it was not as bad as it looked. As I sat there balling, the doctor and her nurse reassured me that this was not the first time they had seen this happen and told me that I would be surprised how often children fall and get hurt.
I still feel like a terrible mother and now my precious son has a goose egg on his forehead to be reminded of how terrible I am...
These pictures were taken several hours after we got back from the doctors and thankfully a lot of the swelling has already gone down...Just imagine this bump ten times larger...YIKES!
Let me just say that my son is going to make me go gray before I am thirty!!
