Actually from the time when they were still quite young, my go-to phrase would be “Do you need an ambulance? Do we need to go to the hospital?” And if the answer was (or is) no, well then, we’d just get on with the rest of our day. Oh you may think I have a lackadaisical approach to parenting, but I don’t really. I love my children more than life itself and would do anything for them. It’s just…well…I know my children you see. While my kids are seven years apart in age, they are still, in many ways, very much like my brother and me growing up, thanks in large part to my mother’s well-timed curse. And I’m determined to get out of this parenting gig alive – preferably with my sanity intact (what’s left of it anyway).
