I have to say, considering I called him death-wish boy, I am really impressed that he made it this far without having to go to the clinic because of an injury. I know some moms of boys who are almost on first name basis with the ER staffs.
We had made it this far without a trip to the dr due to an injury, but had to go last night. So what did he do?
Well, it was a splinter. I can get out most splinters but this one was deep and . . . in a tender area.
He got the splinter in . . . .
Well, the kids have a wooden swing set and there is a ramp going up to the fiberglass slide. For some reason, they like sliding down the ramp.
Although, I don't know if they will do that anymore though.
Because the splinter, it was in one of the cheeks. Of his boohonkus (as he said).
Poor kid, they did give him an injection of lidocaine (a shot to make the story even better) but ended up using a scalpel to try to get the splinter out.
