I can't close my eyes without seeing blood pouring out of Charlie's mouth and his gouged tongue.
He is pretty much okay, but he keeps making this sad face, grunting and pointing at his mouth.
And this morning, I got to perform minor surgery on Dixie. She likes to push her earring backs on all the way until her lobes are pinched and swell and I keep having to pry them loose. Well, I didn't catch it in time this time around and her lobe had started to grow over the earring back.
It was not pretty. Charlie kept sympathetically patting and hugging her, saying 'there, there' and Melody kept bringing her dollies to comfort her.
And at church, they've been talking about showing kindness to your siblings. So Melody proudly announces that 'Next time we're at church in class, I'm going to tell my teacher that I was nice to Dixie and helped her when Mommy had to hurt her.'
Thanks, kid. Thanks.
