When my son was two I started dating (my ex of 12 years) this guy who had two young daughters (5 and 6) who were a huge part of his life. Our first "alone" (without kids) was two months into our dating. Their Mom
Anykids...my son was two. We moved in with him. We had his girls every weekend, which was cool with me! I loved them like they were my own. (I fell in love with his kids before I fell in love with him) At 5 years old his youngest daughter used to carry around this little purse that she had all kinds of "junk" in. One day my son was in their playroom playing by himself and all of a sudden I heard him crying. So I went to check on him. OMFG!!!
Apparently the ex's 5 year old had a tube of Superglue in her purse. My son used to watch me put on make up all the time. Do ya see where I'm going with this?? Yup...he superglue his eyes closed. He stood there trying to pull his eyes open and screaming the entire time! OMFG!!!
(Not my son, but this is kinda what he looked like except he was pulling down on his eyes, not pulling his hair!)
I went into full on panic Mommy mode. I didn't know what to do first! Lmao...I ran around my house with him in my arms trying to figure out what in the fuck I needed to do. So I did what any self respecting first time Mommy would do...I called my Momma!! Lmao...here's the conversation:
Me: "OMFG Momma!!! Rusty super glued his eyes closed!! I don't know what to do!"
Mom: "Well Blondie...BRING HIM TO THE HOSPITAL!"
Me: "OMFG!! I didn't even think of that!!" (Really...I was so panicked that I honestly hadn't even thought of that!!"
Mom: "Keep in touch with me and let me know what they say!"
Me: "OMFG!! OK!!"
So I run out to the car, get him into his car seat and drive the mile and a half to the hospital! Keep in mind, my son is still screaming the entire time trying to pull his eyes open.
So I run into the ER with him in my arms, screaming trying to pull his eyes open! The nurse says "Can I help you?" So I tell her "OMFG!! He found some superglue and glued his eyes closed!!!" They immediately take him to the back. The doctor is laughing his ass off. He told me "I've seen a lot of things come through those doors, but this one is a new one for me! Lol!!"
I did NOT see the humor at the time. I felt like the worst Mother in the world. I had no idea that my 5 year old step daughters Mom (I use that term loosely when referring to her!!
Needless to say, after much sedation, they put some kind of salve on his eyes to get them open. They then numbed his eyeballs and scraped all the glue off his eyeballs. By the time they were finished his eyes were swollen but OK. They had to put him on antibiotics and drops for the pain. They said he would be fine.
Moral of the story? Never trust what another Mother
Lmao...play along people!
