Colton took a nap in our bed this afternoon( it's only 1 foot high, but we have hard wood floors), and we were sitting here eating dinner and I hear a VERY loud not normal scream from our bedroom! I jumped up and sprinted in there to see Colton on the ground with blood all over his face and his hands--I Freak out of course and scream for Matt to come in. I pick up Colton and my hands are shaking so bad- Matt takes him from me and wipes off the blood, and says- "he is okay!" I was still shaking, and I look up at his gums and didn't see his new front tooth that was coming in, so I make Matt check with me, and WOW it was still there! His gums were a little bit swollen from the fall so I couldn't see it very well, and his lip was just bleeding a little bit! I don't know why there had to be so much blood for such a little wound. Anyway, he was fine after about 2 seconds and loved all of the attention I was giving him! Matt says Colton will never be able to play football because I am afraid he will get hurt!
I am a mom, and this is the first time he has gotten hurt, hopefully next time I will be able to relax a little:)
ONe more thing...I have aN obsession with the Chocolate ice cream here. I need to just not buy it--except the grocery store is so close to our house, I probably would sprint over there at night before it closed to get some! It is really truly the best chocolate ice cream I have had! There are a few reasons why I justify eating it:
1) I WALK everywhere (occasionaly jog if I'm feeling REally good)
2) I can't read how many calories or fat grams are in it, so for all I know-it's completely fat free!
3) I'm in another country lonely at night when Colton goes to bed, and Matt is at practice, so what else do I have to do?!
