Life with 4 boys = many visits to the ER ...

Just wanted to share a bit of my life outside the photography world. Having 4 little boys running around our house keeps us on our toes. These little guys are so active they have their share of bumps and bruises.

It's very convenient that our next door neighbor is an ER doc and across the street is Patty an RN. We are so lucky! But a couple nights ago we had to go into Children's. Little Nicko was running, tripped and hit an end table. This is not the 1st time he's had stitches :(

He was a brave boy and is doing great now ... They did a super duper job over at Children's Medical Center ... thanks to the folks there! Here a few pictures of his experience. The iphone came in handy.




the day after ... all better

OMG! Tell Nicko that Benjamin say "Stitches build character." http://thelauschfamily.blogspot.com/2009/02/i-hink-i-it-my-ongue.html

He looks like he is going to heal up and have a pretty cool story to tell his pals.

O'my gosh! The thing that got me was the huge smile on his face... What a tropper! I love Brian's line..."Stitches build character." lol

Ohmiheck! So glad he's doing okay. Stitches are the story of kids. I love (in a weird way) trips to the ER. (There must be something wrong with me!) So funny that you got a picture BEFORE the stitches!
