a compendium of musings and rants from Alison Beightol, who is old enough to know better.

madeline and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day and me too
we love this book at our house. I like the title. today, it fit. so I'm getting ready to go to my weekly craft and gab lunch and the school nurse calls(this is never good) to tell me Maddy got hit in the face with a door and had a cut on her face that may need a stitch. I'll be right there, I say. okay, it's NEVER good in nurse talk when there is hesitation in the words may or cut. that's actually code we use to tell other nurses, dude you better look at this. all in all, the cut would have needed 2 stitches and or skin glue and a plastic surgeon because it's her face. I elected to skip it because it would have involved shots and painful manipulation of her skin. I just brought her home bandaged her up and medicated her with love. sigh. I hate seeing my baby in pain.
