|The whole gang is there--all four stitches.|
I guess I should be glad he's lasted this long without having to be stitched up. He's such a wild, rowdy boy. He's not at all agreeable (see my last post). ;)
However, on top of running into the counter and getting stitches, my precious little one has managed to pull out three of the four stitches within 36 hours of getting them. *Facepalm*
|The Little Stitch That Could|
So, this last stitch, has quickly become, "The little stitch that could"...hold my child's forehead together. If he escapes with even a minor scar, I will owe it to this stitch. If this scar is never the topic of conversation at dinner, I will owe it to this stitch. If future conversations don't turn out like this:
Hi, Mason. Nice to meet you. How did you get that scar?
I will owe it to this stitch.
So, dear little stitch, please do hang on. His face is so precious. He's far too young to be romancing the ladies with tales of how he climbed mountains or conquered dragons and came away with only the scar on his forehead.
Until then, at least for the next few months, I'll just assume that this little scar will be the topic of many a conversation. Add this to the list of agreeable qualities....If your child does NOT take it upon himself to remove his own stitches...you might have an agreeable child.
Then again, perhaps Mason has found his higher calling in life. Maybe he'll be a doctor one day!!
