at exactly 5pm i got the call. z's teacher's name popped up on my phone and when she spoke i heard the words every parent dreads: z's had an accident and you should get here right away.
thankfully it wasn't too too serious. z slipped and busted his chin on the seesaw. by the time i'd arrived the staff had cleaned him up. since it was already after hours and the pediatricians' was closed i decided to take him to the er.
the tech said the wound was small but deep and decided on some sort of superglue to patch z up. z was stoic the whole time - brave little guy. we had a late night at the hospital so the next day i worked from home and let him sleep in. we had a relaxed, unstructured recovery day and z is back to his normal active self.
