And the fact that this is only our SECOND TIME EVER??? Well, just typing that right there just jinxed me, I'm sure.
Our family was looking forward to a fun night out with friends. It was with Hubby's college crew and children (most of whom we go with to Cape Cod) (and all my Girls Weekend gals) who were sooo excited to see each other and ice skate together.
We had only been there about 10 minutes when the husbands wandered outdoors to supervise the children on the ice while we wives remained indoors to
Immediately after, Middle was carried in and deposited on Hubby's lap, near the light so we could survey the damage.
Survey says, "So where's the nearest ER?"
So off the 3 of us went, leaving Eldest and Baby in good hands with all our friends, 20 minutes down the road to the nearest Emergency Room.

He really was a trooper.
We ended up being there for 2-1/2 hours overall. From 7:30 to 10:00pm. Five stitches later, he was all sewn shut!
So we headed back to our friends. Where they had pizza (and wine!) waiting. And a special dessert treat:
Everyone's a comedian
And now Middle is never allowed to ice skate again. The End.
