We ran to the grocery store after lessons and Lauryn wanted to "drive" the cart (buggy for those of you down south). She was doing well and going her own way (probably the first mistake). I was on the lookout for Grandma Patty (who got lost in the candy aisle--go figure) and told her to meet me by the milk. I was coming back from the search and rescue and Lauryn was standing next to the ice cream freezer crying (really loud) and covering her mouth. Oh, great!! Not another trauma, I like to keep it to one trauma a day.
Turns out she ran the cart into the side of the freezer and then ran her mouth into the handle of the cart!! Results: one loose tooth knocked out and a bloody lip. Got some paper towel from the cashier and staunched the blood. By the time we got back to the milk, blood was done and all was well.
Whew. The family made it through another day of ups and downs. Mom stayed sane through all of it and no life was lost in the making of this story!!
