I am so strict when it comes to my daughter's things and other stuff at home. Remember my last post about us buying her a new bed? It was too big to be carried out of the bedroom door. So if we wanted to get it out of the bedroom, we have to disassemble the part and put it back again. On Friday (18th), I washed her playpen and realized that we no longer have her crib because whenever I wash that playpen, she stays in the crib and vise versa. So I had her on the floor walking around the house with me behind her. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the playpen was dried up except for the mat that's zipped on all sides of the playpen. She pushed it so hard that she reached the fan, I was in the kitchen sink and Oh my! I saw her putting her fingers in the fan and there! She had one cut in her flesh and 2 on her middle finger nails. At first I don't know what to do, whether to change clothes and bring her to the nearest hospital or don't change at all. I hurried up washing her hand, we changed clothes in a matter of like 10 seconds and hurried outside to go to the hospital. It was a nightmare. I called my husband from the office and he packed his things and head home.
It was really devastating and scary for the three of us. Thank God her fingers were still attached, and wasn't hurt as bad as I imagined her to be. I though she need to be stitched but the ER doctors assured us that it was just a cut in the flesh. But still, the fact that she's hurt kills me.
I realized a couple of things but I want to stress this out to myself: Forget about dinner, it can wait, my child's safety is more important.
