The scar-face villain

My daughter's personal energy level usually rivals the aggregate energy levels of an entire athletic team. Sometimes this energy compels her to do irrational things, like last week when she spun into the kitchen countertop and split her chin open.

Fortunately, her annual well-child exam happened to be one hour later. She got stitches (again).

Later that evening, my husband looked at her and yelled, "Where are her stitches?" The question confused me, since he was present at the doctor's office and should have known where the stitches were.

The stitches were gone. We rushed her back to the doctor, who informed us that apparently, my child had removed her own stitches on the sly. No, my 4 year-old does not have the appropriate medical training for such a procedure. We anticipate scarring.

  1. Ok, that is great! How funny is that. I'm going to have to tell my sister; we thought Heber was out of control.
