No, I’m not talking recipes either.
I’m talking Monkey, as in my 2 year old. The climbing, running, hyper-never-stops-moving-has-to-be-kept-in-crib-by-a-crib-tent kind of Monkey.
Yesterday while I was cleaning house I heard a thud.
Followed by a scream
Followed by a louder, much louder, blood curdling, bone chilling holycrapi’mreallyhurt kind of heart stopping scream.
I dropped the Dyson on the floor and ran towards the back of the house.
I was met in the hallway by a sight that stopped my heart and sent chills up and down my spine.
The 2 year old Monkey.
Covered in blood with more blood pouring from his mouth.
(This did not help the stopped heart any, thankyouverymuch)
I scooped him up, and we ran into my bathroom.
I see blood on the counter and a razor.
A Gilette Power Fusion razor. side note. best razor evah..
I start washing Monkey with water and he opens his mouth, to scream some more.
I see the source of the blood.
shut your eyes if you’re squeamish
Yep, he took a hunk out of his tongue. The pediatrician said popsicles and nothing salty.
He is handling it really well.
After it quit gushing blood, that is.
Twisted little Monkey that he is, he actually had some fun with it last night at Princess’ cheer practice.
He kept sticking his tongue out, it is rather gruesome looking, and grossing out the girls, captivating the little boys and giving all the moms there the thankgodit’snotmykid chills.
I’m getting a bit tired of gushing bloody wounds around this house, seriously. Are we done yet?
So, has your kid ever tried to shave their tongue?
