I am the worst mom ever!!!!
Ok so maybe I am not the worst mom ever, but I think at times I come in close to 2nd. I guess I should look on the bright side and realize this is the first curling iron burn on any of the three children. I think that is pretty good!! Anyway I was getting Abbie ready for her second day of Kindergarten, she wanted her hair curled, which is pretty normal, I curl her hair a lot. After I was finished I thought " I better take this curling iron in on my bathroom counter to Lucas isn't tempted to grab it." That was my first prompting. So I did, and all three of my kids had to follow me into my bathroom while I was doing this. I kept the curling iron on cuz I was going to curl my hair too. So we walked out of the bathroom, Tanner and Abbie followed, I yelled for Lucas to come too. Ya right I know he is only 10 months old but he always follows me. As I walked to the kitchen to get breakfast going for the two going to school I thought, " I should probably just go pick him up just in case he doesn't follow me" yes, second prompting. Then I heard him crying and I knew what had happened. You guessed it, he had pulled the curling iron down and grabbed it. Ahhhh I am so stupid. My mom says Jaimi the holy ghost was trying to tell you something. I know mom but I had to get the kids fed before they were going to school. Well, I think they ate. I can't remember much after that except a screaming baby and trying to hold his hand under the cold water. Chad came to the rescue and held him while I ran the kids to school, hold back tears so my kids wouldn't get upset before school starts. They did fine, Abbie actually asked if Tanner could take her to class. I was lucky!!! Anyway, I took him to the doctor a 1 1/2 hours later. Yes I had to make an appt. Thanks to Mom for helping me hold it together. Turns out it isn't as bad as it could have been, it is a 2nd degree and we just have to clean it and wrap it everyday. So now I know what happens when you ignore the promptings of the Holy Ghost, won't do that again. He is fine now and besides looking like a clubbed hand he gets around just fine.
