Remember the ROOF story from Day 16? Well, Ashley & Anson climbed the shed again. I know I know they promised, right? At least it wasn't the roof, thank goodness! Anyway, Anson slipped & fell backwards OFF the shed & landed HEAD first onto a metal patio chair armrest, split his head open & bled everywhere. Poor little guy. My Mom came over immediately to watch the other kids & ended up at McDonald's for lunch. I took him to urgent care and 3 hours later, he got 6 staples on his head. When we were done, we met them at McD's. One happy meal & ice cream cone later & he was doing OK. I think they finally learned that when I tell them something is DANGEROUS, that I really mean it. Just like our Moms always said, "It's all fun & games until someone gets hurt!" He's actually doing really good. He also says it doesn't really hurt (unless he thinks someone is going to touch it). Everyone has made their last promise that they will NEVER climb onto the shed again! I really hope so.

Poor kiddo. That looks painful. I'm just picturing a scrapbook page w/ staples everywhere. :)

Oh no. We had to do this with Mr. T almost 2 years ago. He still tells the story with pride. Those staples always reminded me of Frankenstein!! LOL.
Glad that he's okay!

Oh the poor thing! and poor mom. I'm glad he's doing well and hopefully they will stay off the roof
