So my cousin called the other day. He has 18 month old twins that climb EVERYTHING. Girl twin was asleep in her crib, and Boy twin was playing on the floor in the living room. He thought it would be safe enough for him to step outside to have a cigarette (not touching that one). While outside smoking he hear a loud thump/crash. He didn't think much of it at the time, just thought Boy twin had gotten into the pans under the stove; the babies like to do that.
He finished his cigarette and walked inside, only to find Boy twin ON the table, covered in blood and the glass vase in the center of the table (fake flowers) broken. My cousin panicked a little. After he got Boy twin cleaned up, changed, and all the blood cleaned up, he found the ONLY thing wrong with his son was a SMALL cut on his thumb. It took 3-4 band-aids to finally get the bleeding to stop. Boy twin kept taking them off.
I think my cousin called me to see what MY reaction would be, before he told his other half about it. Either way it was a scary incident, but the baby is FINE. I couldn't help myself. As soon as my cousin told me how "bad" the injury was I started laughing.
Anyone else gone through something like this? Scary at first but after a few hours/days/weeks you were able to laugh about it? I have, with BOTH my kids.
