Not for the squeamish...

I feel absolutely awful about this. Poor little Jossy banged her little head and SPLIT it open. Not cut, not scrape- it was more like she popped?!? Not to mention the ensuing gore that pretty much ruined my sister's carpet. (She tried to be nice and said it would blend in with the popsicle drips, but I think most people can tell that this is no blue raspberry Otterpop.)


Why do head wounds have to bleed so bad? I was going to run her into the ER because it looked like she had been scalped.

After we stopped the bleeding and this was what was left, me and Jen decided we were doctors and we glued and butterflied it. I was torn about taking her in for stitches because either she'll have a small scar with stitch marks, or a slightly larger scar with smooth edges. I'll let you know how that turns out. Still, I am absolutely sick about it. Poor little thing was a pretty good sport about the whole thing. Princess bandaids work wonders.


Also a note: The usual suspect (Gage) was no where in the area and he has been fully acquitted.

I HATE split heads. It makes me wonder how my mom got through 6 kids with no stitches...ever! Alex did the same thing in feb. Look at my feb. blog entries for the proof. I find hot twilight pictures because it is my full time job =). j/k...but seriously.

Poor girl! My dad told me David Rees was his nurse and it didn't register that it was your brother until I read your comment. Ya, I'm a little slow. My dad's doing better thanks to your brothers care.
