  • I fell and cut my head open. It was really bleeding.

    At the hospital, I remember the doctor telling me I could sit on the table like a big girl, or on my mom’s lap.

    I said I would sit on my mom’s lap.

    My mom said I should be a big girl.

    I don’t remember the doctor actually putting the stitches in.

    I remember my dad got me Carvel’s ice cream with sprinkles. I remember the sprinkles because they looked like the purple squiggles on my car seat.
