Livy's First visit to the ER

2:41 PM



It started out as a nice and quiet Sunday. We had returned home from church and were watching football. I had Livy on my lap (14month old Daughter) and we were showing our family her new trick! She has learned how to shimmy when you sing! Just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Then...the next thing I knew, she flung her self off my lap and face first into our coffee table and bit completely through her lip. Blood was every where! It was the scariest thing I have ever seen. In an all out panic my husband and I rushed her to the hospital, fearing that she would need stitches and that because of me her beautiful face would be scared forever. I was more upset then she was because I felt it was my fault. She was done crying by the time we reached the hospital and I continued to cry the entire duration. I felt so guilty that I wasn't able to stop it from happening. I even lost sleep at night. Now that its been 7 days later I come to the realization that as a mom there will be moments and events that are beyond your control and the best thing you can do for you and your child is to stay strong and try not to over react. If your child does get hurt it doesn't mean your a bad mom, its just life and bumps and bruises happen....OFTEN!
