My 10-year-old son wiped out on his bike this morning on the way to school and had to get 7 stitches in his chin! It's another boy battle wound! His bike is a mangled mess. The handle bars are all bent up. I keep asking him if he is sure he didn't get hit by a car! He says he just fell! The question is how fast he was going (???), which he won't answer! At least he was wearing his helmet! Here is a freebie for you:

I know how boys are having three of my own. This may not be your last set of stitches. I'm so glad he was wearing his helmet. This template is awesome! I'm going to make a LO right now!!!!!

I am thankful that your dearling was protected partially by using his helmet as he rode his bike. You know 10 year old boys as well as girls are very inquisitive in their activities. I know that as he has each stich, your heart felt everyone. Maybe you should let your dh or some male talk to him when you get a chance. Boys love to experiement with their boy toys and he will not be an exception. You have our continued prayers for you and your family. He will be all right. Just keep him talking.

So nice to visit your blog at such a late time of the evening. This is unusual for me, but I just had to stop by and say hello. What a lovely surprise to see another fantastic template with all those placements for multiple photos. So wonderful. What you can do to a rectangle template is just too fabulous for words. Even with placement for eight objects or photos, there is plenty of space to balance the design. I have seen templates for letter-size templates that crowds the design as it takes away from the overall essence of the page scrap. Love this template and all its opportunities to scrap my grandchildren and my one and only great-grandson. For some reason, I could not find Thursday's DD from GDS. But, today has definitely made up for that loss. Considering the large amount of freebies you have given us, I cannot in real honesty complain. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO

Yikes! So glad he had a helmet and is doing ok. My 2yo DD just got 6 stitches in the forehead last month after falling against our fireplace, so I have some idea how that ER visit must have gone.
Thank you for thinking of us in the midst of such turmoil and leaving us such a wonderful and beautiful template freebie. You are talented and generous. Thank you.

Katka said...

Erin said...

Ouch! Glad he is recovering okay. Probably hurt his ego more than anything else! Thanks for the kinda reminded me of a bike chain at first glance :)

Gini aka "MsGini" said...

Ouch!!! I once paid $93 for a bandaid because my son got a cut on his chin and wasn't sure if we needed stitches! That's all he ended up needing, but you don't want to mess around with boys chins when they have to grow up and shave! Glad your guy is ok now... and thanks for the new template!

jimtown said...

Hope your little guy's wounded pride and chin heal quickly! Thanks so much for the super template! You never seem to run out of ideas!

Sorry to read about your boy, :( I guess it'll be what you're saying: he might have go quite fast when he fall to need 7 stitches. :( I hope he gets well soon. :)

Today's layout is fantastic, thanks so much for sharing it with us. :)

Have a great weekend and best wishes. :O)

this is so darn cute thanks so much

IkeaGoddess said...

OMG, glad to hear he is OK and you didn't have a heart attack when you heard what happened. I guess that's part of raising boys, but I'm so not looking forward to all the worry. The good thing is he was smart enough to wear a helmet.
Thank you for the gorgeous template and have a great weekend.

HollyGDS said...

Oh my! Glad to know he had a helmet on and is safe. Bikes can be replaced....! I wish my boys would like to ride bikes but nope...they'd rather be inside in this heat! Anyway, just saying hi girly!

HeatherB said...

Thankfully he had his helmet. I think boys are much tougher than their moms. I've got 2 of them, and than can be such daredevils! Thanks for the template! :-)

JulieBee said...

Thank you for this wonderful template, Andrea! I'm sorry to hear you and your son had to go through the trauma of bike-wrecking and ER visit, but like the others, I'm so glad he was wearing his helmet. Good boy! My 15 year old boy refuses to and I've been neglectful about forcing him to wear it.

K@trine said...

Great template, thank you! Boys are boys... they can't ride their bikes slowly ;) It's a god thing he had his helmet on!

Joanna said...

Boys ARE boys!!!
Thanks a a lot for another great template.

Michelle said...

Thank goodness he was wearing his helmet and that he is ok. Thank you for another awesome template!

Shawn said...

Heather said...

thanks for the great templates Andrea!

My Little Ironies

  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
