So I went to my sons drs appointment today and they noticed he had a healed over gash on his head. I explained that he ran into a kitchen drawer that I honestly thought I shut. They looked at his chart and said the last time he was in for an appointment he had a bump on his head as well. I told the dr yes he runs into everything so much I feel that I should buy him a bike helmet. (she didnt get the joke)
Well now I know they are keeping track because PA law states that they must and frankly thats fine but I cant help but wonder just how many of those bruises will be thought of as child abuse. I cant help that my 19 month old son runs around like a looney toon. He has an enormous amount of energy, I take him to the park, let him play outside (when I am able to have time outside with him) heck I even pay the 6 dollars to take him to Monkey Joe's bounce house twice a week!
I dont know what else to do and I am freaked that they will call CS because of my son being accident prone :/
