Badge of Honor

A badge of honor for motherhood and childhood is a trip to the ER for stitches.

Nathan was at the pool last week with a friend. He’s gotten so brave at the pool these last weeks. He was doing some “twirl” jumps into the deep end, when he caught his chin on the side.

He split the darn thing wide open.

I’m pretty squeamish when it comes to that stuff. I had to be brave for him while they were stitching him up. I held his hands, but he didn’t know I wasn’t watching!
