One little monkey jumping on the bed

He fell off and bumped his head.

Mommy called the doctor and the doctor said

"bring the monkey in so we can staple his head!"

True story.


(after the staple)

(clearly, he was distraught over the whole situation...)

He was jumping on the bed and fell back and smacked his head on the foot board.  He came to Mike (I was at gymnastics with Chloe), no crying, no screaming...nothing...just very nonchalantlyand said "Dad, I hit my head and it feels funny."   Mike started feeling around on his head, and felt the back of his hair wet with blood.  He called me and I came home and we took him in.  The only time he cried was when he overheard Mike and I talking about him probably needing stitches or a staple.
The funny thing is, when I was about his age, I did the same EXACT thing, from the staple, right down to not crying, but just telling my mom that it felt funny.
I suppose he is like me in some ways, after all.  Take that, Mike!

That means he is so much like his mother. He sounds so much like a brave little knight!
