This morning, just before it was time for Michaela to head out to catch the bus I opened the back door and noticed it was snowing. Not something I was excited about (I don't like being cold) but I knew the kids would be excited. I asked Jeremiah if he wanted to see what chaos I started by shouting to the kids that it was snowing. Jeremiah ran upstairs to get the camera and then gave me the "go ahead" that he was ready to start filming the kids. I yelled out, "It's snowing!" and soon heard Anthony running down the stairs to come see. He ran across the linoleum floor in the kitchen and stopped himself by putting his hands up on the window of the back door. The glass shattered and in my surprise I cried out, "ANTHONY!" I was worried that he had gotten hurt but he thought he was in trouble. He quickly started apologizing and I ran over to look at his hands. He told me he was fine and didn't get hurt but I looked down at his hands and found a gash on his pointer finger where the finger joins the palm of the hand. I guess that's what I get for causing chaos.
So, instead of Anthony going to school this morning and Jeremiah going to work this morning they took a trip to the emergency room. Anthony now has four stitches in his finger/hand and has it splinted to keep him from bending it. After a few days the splint can come off and in about ten days the stitches will come out.
Anthony learned not to bang on glass and I learned there is already enough chaos in my life and I probably don't need to add any more to it!
