What is it with having kids and them causing you strife and worry?
I had a phone call just before 2.30 today from Jacob's school recommending that I collect him ASAP as he'd had a bit of an accident at school and split his head open.
I arrived at school to find a grinning 'thumbs up' son waiting for me. Only when he turned round did I see exactly what he'd done! We ended up going to our local Minor Injuries Unit to have his head checked out. By the time he was seen it had stopped bleeding and had scabbed up naturally so didn't need gluing (thankfully). We were given the normal 'head injury' leaflet but I'm happy to say that (so far) he seems absolutely fine.
To please him, I had to take a photo of his 'war wound' for posterity. Look at the state of his shirt!? His school tie was soaked with blood too. They've both been treated and washed (even though he wanted to keep the stained shirt as a momento!)
