Change of Plans

Well, I had planned on getting caught up on our TON of laundry that needs to be folded. That WAS my plan for the afternoon, until Meagan came up with another idea. During 'nap' time, she decided to find new uses for her baby stroller (at least as much as I can tell). She was in her room, and I was in the hallway, when I heard a really loud crack followed instantly by hysterical screaming. I went right in to see what had happened. I found her lying on the floor, face down at the foot of her bed. The stroller was near her feet, tipped over on its back. From what I can tell, she was trying to stand in it, when it tipped over & she went face-first into the bed frame. And, even though the frame is rounded, she somehow managed to cut her cheek open. There was nothing else around her, so it had to have been the bed. ??? Immediately, her cheek bone got a huge blue welt on it. So I called Lucas, and he came home from work to stay w/ Isaac while I took Meagan to the ER. The doctor said it looked like the skin had split, probably from the force of the impact from the looks of it - no stitches needed though, since it was pretty superficial. She also got lots of x-rays, and thankfully nothing was broken. So we now just have to do the typical head-injury stuff - you know, wake her up ever hour all night long, and so on and so on. So, thankfully, it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been, and the only real aftermath is going to be a black eye to match nicely with her Easter dress!

You know she is acting like her uncle Shane. He is a dare devil and it seems as though Meagan is too. Wait until uncle Shane sees this!!! As for the black eye for Easter, she is a girl and a little makeup won't hurt.

LOL, Its only funny because I was just telling Lucas that we had our first hospital run of the year when Kendrick fell on the stairs and split his chin on Tuesday last week.
