Negotiating the full frontal facial flop
By By Leada Gore, Editor
The call came in around 1:45 p.m., roughly 15 minutes after Sutton had left her second day of Mother’s Day Out.
For those of you who don’t know, Mother’s Day Out is sort of like an abbreviated version of day care. Sutton goes to a local church’s program, attending one day a week for four hours a time. She went for the first time a week ago and despite the nerves of all family members, she made it through fine.
And then there was last week.
Sutton’s note detailed the event: “Sutton has a bump on her head. She was sitting on the floor and all of a sudden yelled “Mommy!” and threw her head down on the floor.”
Oh, that’s all.
Being a good mom or at least trying to be, I talked to Sutton when she got home that day.
She didn’t respond.
Sutton didn’t respond, opting instead to drag her stuffed animal into the living room where the rest of her toys were.
When Greg got home that evening, I explained to him what happened and asked his advice.
So I guess we will have to wait and see how this week goes. Either things will go fine and we will proceed or she will have another full frontal facial flop and get kicked out of Mother’s Day Out.
I guess time will tell.
