FHE

For family night tonight, we decided that we would have a marshmallow/hotdog roast. This is the first one this year and we were so excited to stink like campfire smoke and fill our bellies with some burnt sugary goodness aka..marshmallows! We got the fire going, without the help of gas(dad) and we were well on our way to having a great evening. Tatum was showing us her mad skills on the trampoline when suddenly, she got off holding her face and running into the house. I saw blood dropping from her face so I obviously quickly followed. She had gone into the kitchen to get some paper towel to mop up the blood. I told her to turn around so I could see what she had done and she's like.."Mom, it's no big deal." She wasn't crying or anything. She thought it was just a little scratch or something. The funny thing was that as she was saying that, she had a huge stream of blood coming out of her mouth. I looked and saw that she had put her teeth through her lip so I told her that she would for sure have to get some stitches and then it happened....the thought of stitches put her over the edge and then she freaked out! Ryan ended up running her over to the clinic and the doctor stitched her mouth up. The REALLY SAD part in all of this, is that when Tates was getting stitched....big tough Daddy just about passed out. He had to be taken to the room next to Tatum's to lie down for a while. And he had his own personal nurse bringing him sugar water and watching over him. Hehe! He'll shoot me that I put this on here but seriously????? The 11 year old is fine and the 34 year old is getting most of the attention at the clinic.....see anything wrong with this picture???? Poor Ryan......blood and needles is definitely not his strong suit in life....good thing he is a rockstar at everything else!
