Best Laid Plans

I had just finished pinning this quilt and was planning on starting the quilting while DD was at piano. After walking her to her piano lesson I came home just in time to receive a phone call from her brother. He wanted me to come pick him up. I told him he could walk (he was not that far away.) This is when he told me he needed stitches. Fortunately his older brother had recently gotten home with his car. My hubby had mine while his is being repaired. If I had been thinking I would have grabbed this to work on while I waited for the doctor. I finished quilting it this weekend. But I was in mother mode and just needed to get my N to the doc. So Alex and I drove to where N had been skateboarding. We load him and his skateboard into the car. While listening to a description of what had happened from his friends. Then head to insta care. Calling hubby on the way to let him know what’s up and to tell him he needs to hurry home before DD gets back from piano and is home alone. When we get to insta care a nurse comes out to look at N’s wound. She asked how it happened and the ever helpful Alex tells her I beat them. The very savvy nurse told him apparently not enough. To which I responded ya your still conscience. (Not more than a month ago Alex was in the same insta care getting stitches because he cut his hand at work.) Oh the joys of being a mother of boys. Fortunately N only needed two stitches, but he has a scratch from his lip across his cheek to the end of his jaw. Just in time for school pictures. Oh well, it will make for good memories later. So today I got to my quilting. More daisies of course. And thankfully no phone calls requiring medical attention. Oh by the way Snips & Snails meets Sugar & Spice is up on my webpage now.

    Gosh our children can be so delightful at times can't they!! They forget that our stomachs are churning inside with worry. I can't wait until they are themselves parents….

    oh, how funny!! I remember that feeling when one of the kids got hurt, or had an asthma attack, or something,,,it never ends, but after they are grown and gone, just smile,,,they will have to do this with their own children someday,,,tee hee,,,paybacks and all that…

    the quilt is beautiful! can't wait to see it all done.

    Oh I'm cracking up at Alex's response to the nurse…sounds like something one of mine would say lol!! I'm glad he's o.k. Your daisy's are sooo cute!

    Boys and skateboards always seem to add up to stitches eventually.
    I hope the rest of the week passes without too much drama for you.

    Yep boys! We were just thankful that Son wasn't in hospital being sewn together this year. I think all of us were wondering so were relieved when he said he just wanted a family birthday and not something like rock climbing.

    I like your nurse. 🙂 Do you think she had brothers or sons herself? LOL

    Glad it wasn't too serious. These things are sent to make us run to our sewing machines. 🙂

    Boys!! My son once fractured his thumb by tripping over his sister's bag of shoes – talk about Venus and Mars!!!

  • Needled Mom says:

    Having raised four sons, I can sympathize with you. At one point we had four fractures in five months. What fun!

    I love that sweet quilt. The daisies are so darn cute too.

    Boys are fun, aren't they? Good thing you have a sense of humour! The new quilt is so cute! I love the little daisies.

    Thinking back on that post the other where I was asking about "planning" or "going with the flow" – this is the perfect example of why you have to go with the flow! You have boys that are ALL BOY there.
