I hope everyone is enjoying a great start to the new year! We spent most of the day in the emergency room - my 20-month old tumbled down a flight of stairs. A quick call to his pediatrician said to take him in to the ER even if he looked good because she wanted him checked out. So, we went. And we sat, and sat, and sat. They actually got us in right away, did a cursory exam, ran some x-rays & then wanted to keep him for observation to see if a brain bleed developed. So we got to hang out in the waiting room - yippee! - instead of vegging on the couch watching bowl games. No black-eyed peas for good luck, no stopping at go, no collecting $200. But, we did get out in time to enjoy dinner with my in-laws so the day was salvaged a little bit.
Since we average about one visit to the ER every couple of years, I'm hoping this will tide us over for a while! How about you, any interesting starts to the year?
