A smashed thumb and so much more...

Lucas got his thumb smashed at daycare earlier this week. Danielle called to tell me that it didn't look to pretty and she was right. I was pretty sure his thumb nail was going to fall off after I first saw it but it is looking much better today. I tried to take some pictures of it but do you know how hard it is to get a 13 month old to hold his hand still?

Along with getting his thumb smashed, we met with his Parents As Teachers, Lisa, on Tuesday night. Things were going oh so well. Lucas was doing the activity she demonstrated and then he started to get tired. He crawled to my lap and was there for 2 seconds and lost everything. Any when I say everything, I mean everything. Lucas has never puked in his 13 months and that night he made up for it all. Jon and I felt terrible for Lisa. She was on the floor helping Jon clean up the puke while I was giving Lucas a bath. We thought things were better after the bath but we were wrong. After the second puke, we decided that PAT could wait a couple of weeks. I'll update you on how the next meeting goes. : )

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, that made me want to cry for him! Poor little guy! And it's hard for you guys too! Hope he's feeling MUCH better!

I gotta tell ya-when I saw that picture of him with his mac and cheese it just brought his daddy back all over again-I remember when Jon would eat nothing BUT mac and cheese.

poor baby! My thumb hurts just looking at it.

Another testimony on the support a Parents as Teachers teacher gives to a parent. They really earn their minimum wage!
