Mak managed to slice open his big toe on the cold air return today. It was pretty superficial, but it bled quite a bit: "blood all over! there's my blood all over, Mama!" He calmed down fairly quickly once we started cleaning it, but I managed to make him freak out worse than he did when he cut himself in the process:
Because it wouldn't stop bleeding, I couldn't just put a bandaid on his toe, so I pulled out some sterile gauze to put on it. I gave Mak the cloth to hold on his toe, and told him I was going to get the scissors. He lost his mind! He thought I was going to get the scissors to cut his toe!!
Poor guy ...
Here is is all bandaged up! I'm sure he'll make a full recovery, but we did not make it to gymnastics this afternoon. :(
