The Monday Snapshot – Owie Edition

On Friday I got home from work around 6pm, and my husband and SIL (who had watched Stella that day) were in the kitchen chatting while Stells crawled around on the floor. A little bit later, I was holding Stella and noticed a mark on her arm. It kind of looked like a burn, but I asked SIL and she said she didn’t know anything about it. Long story short, a couple of hours later the mark was looking worse, and we figured out that when SIL had been getting ready for her date that night, Stella had pulled on the cord of the curling iron. SIL thought that she had grabbed it before it touched her, but obviously not. *sigh* Poor baby. It doesn’t seem to be bothering her at all, but I sure feel bad for her. She’s too young to be getting curling iron burns already!

      That’s sounding a lot meaner than I meant it to. It’s just that I live in a relatively normal size city, and people complain about thr dying pool being too small.

      1. Bwahaha – no, you’re totally right. People often say, “you don’t lose your girlfriend, you lose your turn.” … which is sick, and slightly true. People also talk about “importing” significant others. 🙂 The guy my SIL is going on a date with has been in town for the past few months working on a gov’t job, so he’s not from here. IMPORT!

  6. Aloe Vera so that it doesn’t blister and scar! Even if it doesn’t seem like it hurts her, I would still put some on her throughout the next day or two.

    1. Thanks! It was a gift from my mom to her, and it’s my little brother’s favorite, which makes me smile every time I put it on her. 🙂

  9. I can’t believe she didn’t cry when it touched her! That happened to me as a kid, but I grabbed the thing like it was nobody’s business and have a nice scar on my hand. Glad it doesn’t seem to be bothering her.

    1. Well, apparently she DID cry when it touched her, but my SIL thought it was because she took the cord away and my husband didn’t check either. *FacePalm* Hasn’t bothered her since then though.

  10. OUCH!!! the good thing is it’s on her arm…I used to burn my neck with the curling iron and people always assumed it was some sort of a hickey…that would be hard to explain on an 11 month old 😛

    She’s a trooper…and I agree, aloe, vit e and mederma to help it heal…poor baby 😦

  18. I spent most of this post waiting for friend/cousin “Owie” to appear. Now I get it. Poor girl! My little guy stuck his fingers in steaming hot mango a few weeks ago and burned himself. i felt AWFUL. But he’s fine. And now doesn’t stick his little fingers in steaming hot mango.
