I find it ironic that I was supposed to be posting a tutorial for installing a sprinkler system today and instead I ended up taking my 5 year old to the hospital for being severely dehydrated again.
They hooked him up to an IV (which is a very nice way of saying that it took three of us to hold down a screaming boy as they tried many times to find his vein) and got two bags of fluid in him. He’s feeling much better but has to stay in the hospital for two days. His blankie came with us to the hospital. It has so many holes in it from being washed numerous times. I fully expect it to vanish one day when all the little holes connect.
In case you were wondering, this is the same kid that broke his arm twice in three months.
And fell face first into the asphalt last year resulting in a mangled mouth of stray teeth.
Basically, this sweet little FIVE year old has now taken TEN years off my life! At this rate, I’ll be kicking the bucket 2 years earlier every year that I live. Let’s hope I was destined to live to 120.
All you parents out there, do you have one child who is more accident prone than your other children? Next up on Pretty Handy Girl: sewing a bubble suit for my son.
