What kind of mom do you think you are...?

When it comes to kids getting hurt?

Do you panic and run for someone else to deal with it?

Are you cool, calm and collected and just start thinking about what actions need to be taken?

Do you appear calm, but your hands are shaking uncontrollably and you feel like screaming on the inside?

Do you pass out at the sight of blood?

My kids are grown...but I was always the cool, calm and collected kind. The kind that said..."Oh..you'll live!" lol

I never freaked when my kids got hurt.

I'm calm, sometimes I think I might come off as cold because I try to keep the child calm.

Some one's arm could be dangling and I'm going to be like "alright let's take a deep breath" lol

I get cool and calm, but afterwards I freak out a bit.  Blood does not bother me.

I handle it calmly and don't show emotion, its very sterile.... I sometimes freak out later though lok.

Me too unless I saw a lot of blood (hence stitches) or anything broken. Then I freaked out on the inside. I kept the kids calm but inside I was a freaking mess. It killed me to know they were hurt.

I panic, take a breath and deal with the situation.

I remember someone on here once said her kid got hurt so she started screaming out of her bathroom window and her neighbors came running.

i find that so funny.
