Blake’s First Stitches

From Rusty’s journal:

When he first hit his chin he was irate, running around screaming and crying.  Not wanting me to look at it.  Not wanting anyone to touch it.  Not wanting at all to go to the doctor.  Just freaking out.  “Wow” I thought.  I thought we had raised grittier kids.  I thought our kids were pretty tough.  I remember being decently tough when I got my stitches.  We took a picture and sent it to Brett to take a look.  We talked about all the other people who had stitches.  Kali had them twice.  And then, after hearing Brett’s stories, like a miracle, he did a complete 180.
