I sent the girls off to school.
I drove the older boys to school.
I got Caleb started on his Math test...
I answered my phone...
I should have known when I saw the number...
I KNEW when I heard her voice...
"Mrs. Hamlin, this is L--- H---, I am here with Emmeline - in the nurse's office...
"in the nurse's office"
Never a good thing!
At this point you know that you are either going to be dealing with a vomiting child or a bleeding child and with my kids, with the exception of one who tends to vomit when he just thinks he might have a fever, if you chose bleeding...
you would be right!!!
Now, here is the toughie!
Can you guess which child tried to get out of school by bleeding profusely from the head???
If you have read my blog for a while, you might just be able to guess which child had a fight with his/her desk
Which child might, how shall I say this, be a bit more inclined to end up at the nurse's office bleeding so badly that his/her Mom (that would be I) had to be called away from her perfectly peaceful morning routine??
Well, here is a hint.
It is not this one, believe it or not,
but it might as well have been!
Got it now???
Well, if you guessed this one...
You would be right!!!!
Yes, little Miss Emmeline decided that she just had to follow in the foot steps of her brothers, her "twin" brother to be exact!
So, off we go to the local urgent care, who honestly should know us by name and have a dedicated wing just for our kids! Heh!
Dear Miss Em ended up in the same exact bed, the same exact room, room #6, as did her "twin" when he decided to wipe up the road with his face!
Ah yes, room #6, I remember it well. What memories!!
We were treated to popcorn and soda and chips and prizes and...
Yep, Miss Em decided that even though her injuries didn't require a CT scan or an MRI as did her "twin's," she figured she would "out stitch" him by 3 whole stitches!
but with all the chips and popcorn and prizes and soda that you can handle, who cares about 5 little stitches!
I am surprised we didn't end up back at the local urgent care later that night with tummy aches!
My kids spent the rest of the day banging their heads up against the wall trying to get me to take them back!!
I am on to you, urgent care place!!!
So that was out little stroll down memory lane in room #6.
I spent the rest of the day trying to keep her quiet!
Once again, Miss Em has proven that she is...
JUST LIKE HER BROTHERS!
