We returned home this evening after being away for 3 days.  I was making a mental list of everything I needed to do when I got home plus everything going on this week that I need to prepare for.  We weren't home 30 minutes and I watch Hunter trip outside on the porch and go head first into the screen fence that goes around the pool.  There were immediate tears and that reaction to fight back because it hurts so bad.  I immediately grabbed him and comforted him before assessing the injury.  I thought he had hit his face, but then I saw some blood in his hair.  There was a little, but deep enough cut to warrant a trip to urgent care.  There was a screw sticking out of the pole and that's what cut him.  So, off we went.  The lists can wait.  He was terrified of needing stitches, but I was pretty confident they would just glue it.  And glue it they did.  He was SO brave and declared afterward that it didn't hurt at all.  We were in and out and home in no time.  I think the worst part of it will be having to sit out during playground time at school this week!  Let's hope the week is a little less exciting :)

Urgent care trip for Hunter. Cut on the head. Thankfully, a little glue is all it needed.
