The boys were getting ready for bed, my 3 year old was in his brothers room, taunting him like usual. Next thing I know he's screaming... I run in there and he has blood dripping down is face, so I scoop him up and run to the bathroom. I was able to look at the cut in between it bleeding and I just knew he was going to need stitches or staples, so out the door we run, at 8pm at night, in a snowstorm!
I dropped the older one off at his grandparents house so I didn't have to deal with both of them at the med center... THANKFULLY they weren't busy and got us in right away! He needed 3 stitches. He did great and was up and jumping around right after they were done. In the whole rush to get my 3 year old medical attention... I failed to really find out what happened, although I kind of gathered that it was done by my 5year old, swinging his soccer medal around and hitting my 3yr old.
My husband isn't very hands on when it comes to the boys since he's out of town so much, so I wasn't sure what he was going to say next... and what he said surprised me! I honestly wouldn't have even thought of it... he said "I would like to spank you for hurting your brother but I am not going to... I am going to leave your punishment up to you. You have two hours to decide what would be a good punishment for hurting your brother."
