So my friends that I was having issues with and my family all took a 2 months break from each other. Now I remember why.
Their 6 year old (more and more of a blonde airhead) decided she'd try and put her 3 year old brother BACK in the bathtub, KNOWING that she's not supposed to do stuff like that. Well, his wet, slippery body squirmed out of her arms and he did a header into/onto the bathtub, full of warm water.
Dad took him and ran for the ER, leaving Mom and the other two kids at home. I offered to watch the other two while my husband took Mom to the ER too. 6 year old had NO CLUE how dangerous what she did was.
3 year old, size of a 4-5 year old, had to get 3 staples in his head. It's the back of his head, just to the left of center. Mom now has to stay up all night and keep a close eye on him too, with school in the morning.

Wow. As bad as that is, it could have been a lot worse. I would take that over the alternatives in a heartbeat.
I hope the 3 year old has a speedy recovery.
