Last night after dinner I went outside to clean up the kids toys in the yard and left the kids with dh. While I was picking up, I heard my 15 month old start screaming. I rushed inside to find my dh trying to soothe him. He was completely oblivious to the fact that my son had blood gushing from his mouth! I grabbed the baby from dh and rushed into the kitchen where my nearest first aid kit is kept. Well, long story short, he had 3 cuts in his mouth from his 3 bottom teeth, one of which took out a little chunk, and one of his teeth chipped. He also (obviously) has a very fat lip and a bruise under his bottom lip.
Apparently dh was playing with him (chasing him around saying "I'm gonna get ya") and ds fell forward and smacked his mouth on the TV Stand. I know dh didn't intentionally hurt him but I've got to tell you, it took all of my will power not to yell at dh. Not because I blamed him per Se, but bc my baby was hurt and I needed someone to blame.
What was your child's first big BooBoo? Was someone at fault? How did you react?
