Can't believe it took almost 7 years for this to happen....

This afternoon, I was trying to get the kids ready to take a walk through the neighborhood.  Now that it is getting dark at 7:30, our days of playing outside after supper are coming to an end.

And, of course, in the 12.75 seconds I was not paying attention, G managed to shove M's head into the corner of the stair (where there is no carpet), cutting a vertical gash over his eye.

M cried really, really hard for a very short time and settled easily, but I took him to urgent care anyway because the cut was vertical, deeper than I felt comfortable with just leaving alone, and right over his eye.  (And why, by the way, does this kinda junk happen at 5:01 pm after the doctor's offices have closed?)

The doctor cleaned him up and closed the laceration with Dermabond.  M will have a scar.  His first of many given to him by his terror of an older brother.

I know this will be the first of many encounters my boys will have with Dermabond, sutures and scars.

Poor little M! His smile in the photo indicates that he's not in continuing pain, so that's good.

And don't worry, it won't be too long before G gets his comeuppance from little bro. It's only a matter of time... ;-)
