Any there any other parents out there that have this thought running around in your head, "hmm, I wonder if this will be the summer of the broken bone?"
Knock on wood, I know . . .
At this point, our children have had minimal injuries. In twelve years, we've had:
Big: hospitalized as a baby for RSV
Middle: hospitalized as a baby for RSV
Little: ER trip to glue his head back together when he tripped on thin air and crashed his melon into the dog bowl
Middle: ER trip to stitch her chin back together after she fell in the back yard
So, considering 19 hours of gymnastics (yea, I think that's a high-risk sport) per week and 10 hours of volleyball per week, plus tae kwon do and various activities that include ziplines, trampolines & tree climbing, we have a pretty stellar record for safety. Given all of that, I think our (a) first REAL gymnastics injury and (b) first family broken bone are post-able.
Middle broke her baby toe. Almost laughable, isn't it?
