Christmas Eve Plans May not Have Gone as Expected if Your Child Has Her First Ever Candy Cane in the Emergency Room

My plans for Christmas Eve:
  • Chicken
  • Potato
  • Green Beans
Head of Demolition's plans for Christmas Eve:
  • Reach from high chair to grab chocolate off table
  • Emergency room
  • Two staples in back of her head
As you can see, we were at odds.  But she eventually won.

On the bright side, if head stapling is in order, Christmas Even is the time to do it.  Apparently.

My Parter in Crime couldn't believe I let the Head of Demolition have her very first candy cane, because I am usually against food coloring and this treat had food color in spades.

But it was past bedtime and the hospital had on the sushi and ritual bondage channel.  So not only did I allow it, I was all:

"For CRYING OUT LOUD PEOPLE!!!!!  Somebody PLEASE get this child sugar and food color!"

She also got a beanie baby, and a toy from some Disney movie I never heard of.

She actually left the hospital more upset about the fact that they didn't have stickers like her pediatrician does than she was about the staples.

Our December has been a constant traipse to and from healthcare facilities for the following:
  • Staph (twice, same kid)
  • Croup
  • Ear infection
  • Hives (twice, two separate kids)
  • Head stapling
And so even though I had all kinds of printables and recipes and tons of other fun stuff, the best I can really do at this moment is leave you with a picture that is NOT from a hospital:

I've had a hard time figuring out if it is too very disgusting to put a picture of the staples here.  And since it's taken me so long to figure it out, I'm thinking that's pretty much a yes.

You're welcome.

Hope you had a nice Christmas and/or a merry Thursday!
