I do not have the strength for a real post. Again.
All I wanted to do today was get home from work, put on my pajamas, and do more work. Well, I didn’t exactly want to do more work, but I had work to do and I wanted it to be done, so I that’s what I meant.
I was almost home when I got a call from the woman at after care.
Her: Is this Nathan’s mom?
Her: How far away are you?
Me: Five minutes? Ten maybe?
Her: Can you get here faster?
Me: Um, no. Why?
Her: Well, Nathan and another kid banged heads and his nose is bleeding and there is so much blood.
Me: Ugh. Okay.
Her: He’s really freaked out.
Me: Okay. I’m coming.
Her: I’m really freaked out, too.
Me: Uh, okay. I’m… coming.
I called my husband who was actually closer than I was. By the time I got to the school, he was already there. Nathan had blood remnants all over his face and a gash on the bridge of his nose. He was so upset, naturally.
To make a very long story short, we took him to the emergency room. They took x-rays and his nose, thankfully, isn’t broken. No stitches, just glue and steri-strips. No concern for head injury. We skipped the tetanus shot since he had one a few years ago.
He’s fine. He’ll be better tomorrow. I’m fine. I’ll probably be better tomorrow, too.
I don’t like when my kid gets hurt. My poor little baby.
But I really don’t have the energy to tell that story tonight.
This is yeah write’s nomo Day 23.
