See these cute little feet??
Well, lately they're always jumping. Jumping is VERY fun, especially when there are others jumping too. So Chris, because he's a really good Dad, was jumping with Audrey on Wednesday night. But his motto, "Go big or go home" did not serve him very well that night. First, he jumped over her head. Awesome stuff. But that wasn't enough. So he jumped up onto the counter top. Do you know how difficult that is? He looked like spiderman - and Audrey squealed with delight. A few minutes later a little voice saying, "Daddy, daddy, counter!", made Chris attempt his spidey acts one more time. But not before telling his wife that he's going to "mess up" his shin. Did you know that the average density of granite is between 2.65 and 2.75 g/cm3 ? That means it's very, very hard. Any guesses as to the average density of someone's shin?
Chris' shin didn't stand a chance. He fell to the floor and pinched the flap of skin together so his bone (which he touched) would be covered. After convincing a screaming Audrey that Daddy is "okay" (she repeated this over and over again all night), we made our way to the ER. Twelve stitches later we were home. Just to clarify - 9 of those stitches are on top and 3 are under the skin holding the fatty tissue and muscle together..gross.
