While at work today, I received the sort of phonecall every parent dreads. "Your daughter has had an accident and is in hospital."

It was my 7-year-old who was hurt. Fortunately it wasn't serious- a clash of heads in the playground left her with a gash on her forehead (the other kid was hospitalised to be stitched up too). They did a neat job of glueing it back together, but it's over an inch long, and she's going to be left with a scar.

Oh well- just about everyone picks up a scar or two in childhood. I just hope she isn't left self-conscious about it. Needless to say, I was left in a bad mood- all those enraged paternal hormones meant the primitive parts of my brain were insisting that I badly needed to go batter something to death.

She's OK, incidentally. No signs of concussion, so we've just got to let her heal.

Thank goodness.
Maybe she will want to grow up to be a pirate now.;)

That must have been scary. Glad she's going to be ok. And hopefully the scar won't be that bad.

they all told me about the slepless night and all, but I'm discovering the worst part of being a parent: living in fear forever

I thought this would be a thread about your latest DIYing accident...

Glad she's OK, Vit E skin oils are great for avoiding scars BTW.

I can only hope she grows up to be a pirate. Laz's writeups of her adventures will be something to look forward to.

I have a scar on my forehead from running into the dog and impaling myself on one of his canines when I was two. It's small, I use it to tell how far my hairline has receded. It used to be hidden right on the hairline, now its quite a bit easier to spot!

my mum let me fall from the high chair when I was 1.5
I got a slight, partial crack in the skull, but no exterior sign, other from my behavior

I have loads of scars and dents - it's a wonder I made it out of childhood!

Some might say I never did...:D

True dat.

Glad she's ok, Laz.

Anyway, scars are cool. Along with beards. :)

And smoking. :-P~~

Absolutely, she can keep the scar, and skip the tattoo.

Knocking heads hurts, good she's ok.

I've spent this evening coaching her to say "This is my lobotomy scar".
