Norah has an infinity for magic markers and the wall. She got a red one to the wall a week or so ago. Today I went upstairs to take a shower. I made sure she was watching a movie (she chose Tom and Jerry) and I thought all the markers were put away. I went up to shower. As I was stepping out of the shower I heard her making a noise in the hallway. I came around the corner and there she was with a green marker on the wall. I scared her and she dropped the marker. I look down the hall and there is a line of marker on the wall. I quickly get dressed and as I come down stairs I can see a line all the way up the wall and on the banister. She even colored on light switches. I was only in the shower for 15 minutes, but it only took her 30 seconds to make a huge mess!
I was making dinner this evening and the next thing I knew Norah slipped in the dining room. She hit her head, just above her left eye on one of the chairs. She was bleeding pretty good and it was a gaping wound. Great! I knew it was pretty big so I got her up and took her to the ER. Cody stayed home with Gavin and waited for Ethan to get home from Scouts. She ended up with 3 stitches! You'd think with the two older boys we would have had stitches before, but we haven't. Norah is the first.
We've been to the hospital way too often for my taste.
What a day! I'm ready for bed!
