The adventures of boys

So a few days ago my 2 1/2 year old and my 8 year old were wrestling on my bed when it happened......Silence broken by that irrevocable mind shattering scream followed by the cry!! Something had happened and it wasn't going to be good. Hubby followed the noise and I trailed behind him....the scene unfolded with this.....2 1/2 year old bleeding profusely from mouth. Blood all over bed. 8 year old in shock and holding his head. What do we discover of our 2 1/2 year old?? He has bitten his tongue pretty good. Now I know and I am sure the rest of you know usually there isn't much that is done for mouth wounds but, I made the call anyway...just to be certain. I am told to take him to the Er since the bleeding hasn't stopped and it is pretty deep. So off we go. We were in and out in a flash so that is good but poor baby, his mouth keeps bleeding on and off and he had an awful night trying to sleep (he is a thumb sucker...not a good combo with tongue wound). Big brother has a lump on his head and a little scratch were they collided but is otherwise alright. So here are a few pics from the scene. This first one was after the er trip and things had settled a down a bit. No stitches...just Popsicles and ibuprofen ordered.

And after a few days of healing here is where we are at:

Still has some healing to do...but they were both back at it the next day after the incident. BOYS!!

OUCH!!! poor lil fella!

When I was a teen my Mom babysat a lil girl, she got up on the kitchen chairs and fell between one day biting her tongue. My Mom was freakin'.. I went with her to take the lil one to the ER, she indeed had to have stitches.. very traumatic!

Thankfully those mouth wounds do heal quickly!
