Score: Bookcase - 1, Bug - 0

Bug's daycare called me this morning to tell me that a heavy bookcase had fallen over and landed on Bugs hand. They thought I should come take a look at it right away.
When I arrived he started crying and showed me his pinkie.
It was twice the size of his other one, with a huge blood blister.
So I took him to urgent care and the verdict is a broken pinkie finger.
He seems almost proud of it now though.
On the way home he said " I'm the youngest person in my family to have a broken bone"
With that "I'm pretty cool" tone to his voice.
God help me when this boy becomes a teenager!

The offending bookcase has been punished by getting screwed to the wall.

Sorry to hear of his injury, glad it wasn't worse. And of course injuries are always cool when the pain goes away. If you're a kid.
btw -
The bookcase should have been screwed to the wall before it fell.

Ouchie... that's not good. I think I would be panicking a lot worse knowing that the school had this heavy bookcase fall on my child as the injuries could have been so much more serious had it fallen on his head... head injuries can cause all sorts of problems... TRUST me...
I'm so happy it was not much more serious and I sure hope he's healing ok... he's a trooper! Big hug to the Bug =)

I'm making little steps into the blogs and wanted to say thanks for your comments during the last weeks ... they meant so much...
