Kem bonked her chin tonight and instantly burst out screaming, blood streaming from her mouth. Ironically she was right between Superman and I (fell against a chair he was sitting in) and so we both scooped her up and clumsily attempted to stop the blood and find its source. I never did get a good look at where the blood was coming from (I suspect she just bit her lip) but after sucking on a cold washcloth the bleeding stopped and Kem was back to her happy self.
It's funny how within seconds of her first scream and my first glimpse of all the blood my mind was already working out the shortest route to the ER and picturing stitches because of course she had bit through her lip and wondering how to do things on Superman's health insurance because we just (last week!) canceled our insurance through me. None of it ended up mattering but my mind didn't wait to figure out if a trip to the ER was necessary, it just went there. Does anyone else think like me?
