With girls that think they need to climb everything in sight and have dare devil blood running through their veins. No matter how much I try to convince them that they can just walk down the stairs, that they don't have to slide down the banister, or that no matter how good they think they are at swimming they really cannot quite swim on their own yet, they refuse to listen. So it was only a matter of time before we ended up in the ER. Here is our first stitches incident. Aly split her chin open while cannon-balling into the bath tub. I can not even count the amount of times I have asked them not to jump in the tub, but it still has not deterred them from their jumping in the tub contest.
Aly was so proud of her stitches that I am not sure that it was a good thing to take her to the ER she loves to tell everyone about how brave she was and displaying her battle wounds. I overheard her talking to a friend and it really sounded more like she was giving tips to her friend on some possible ways to get an injury that might be ER worthy.
