Bubble Wrap

I think I might wrap Rebecca in bubble wrap next week and keep her in her bedroom. After a week like this one, I don't think she can handle any more injuries! I know she is only 3 years old, but we've already noticed that Rebecca is not very coordinated and tends to fall down and bang into things a lot. But this week takes the cake.

On Monday night she was at VBS and fell/tripped and landed in such a way that she split open the front of her knee about an inch. It really looked liked it needed stitches, but wanting to avoid the ER, we waited until Tuesday morning to take her in. Her doctor did put 5 stitches in her knee. I won't go into too many details about the procedure, but it was awful for everyone and I've never heard Rebecca scream so much!

She is doing great now and hardly notices that there are stitches in her knee. We have to keep reminding her not to run or crawl on her knee. She gets her stitches out on July 11th.

In addition to stitches on Tuesday, Wednesday she managed to fall down the deck steps and land on the concrete. She scraped up her shoulder, bumped her head, and added another scrape to her knees. On Thursday at VBS again, she was climbing on something and scraped and bruised the under part of her arm. And to top it off, Friday she slammed her thumb in the car door! The scary thing is that all of these injuries were "self-inflicted", she didn't need help from anyone else. We pray she survives childhood!


  1. I'll keep praying that you survive parenthood.

  2. YIkes!! Poor thing. We have yet to make a trip to the ER!! (I am hoping that I didn't just jinx myself!!!) Congrats on the addition to the family!! Rebecca will be an awesome big sister.
