Now I’m Just Being Stubborn.

Now I’m Just Being Stubborn.

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?

Me: Yes.

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.

    I hate when stuff like that happens even now at 22-years-old. They still want our help. That part I do like. Good job on the YW Nomo. I blew it a couple times but did better than I would have if I didn’t play along. Sometimes we gotta cut ourselves some slack!
