Is history repeating itself?

So this morning I went out to move our car into the street because we are getting our approach torn out. I came back in to find Paige crying in the middle of the floor. I had no idea what was wrong. I went to pick her up and her little pinky was bleeding all over and there was a cut through the skin from one side to the other. Who knows what happened? I asked Andrew and, of course, he said Morgan did it??? Well, images of my retarded pinky came to mind and I tried to clean it up to see the real damage. Luckily, whatever cut her didn't go all the way through. It just cut a moon shape flap of skin off the bottom of her finger. However, her little nail is already blue. Poor Paige. Hopefully her nail is okay and doesn't end up looking like mine. THAT would be tragic. I couldn't get a good picture of the other side with the flap of skin gone. I am sure you are happy about that.
Here is my beautiful pinky. I was also 1 when my tagedy happened. Same finger, same hand, and same age. It must be a family curse!

Poor little Paige! I forgot about you little pinky finger. But just think, you still turned out fine even with it, so she should too :) That is kindof weird it was the same finger and same age...

Poor little Paige! That's why I can't have childern, I don't want to ever see them get hurt! (I think I'm still scared from James cutting his head open!)Your diamond looks really big and pretty in that second picture! I hope Paige makes a full recovery!

I'm sorry what was that about a pinky? I was distracted by your gigantic ring...

OUCH!! Isn't it too funny (sad) what kids can get into when Mom's back is turned for 30 seconds. I hope she doesn't loose her fingernail, I bet yours hurt too?? So sad your finger has been bent your whole life...so sorry (at least it is your little pinky finger and not your thumb that is used more often) Hope she is over her trauma.

I just love that pic of her tiny little hand (Paige's hand, not yours). Poor thing. I'm sorry she got hurt.

I remember that day when your finger got smashed... because I slammed the bathroom door on it. I remember hiding under my bed when the ambulance came because I thought it was the police coming to take me away.

Interesting Jackson just got his left index smashed and his nail turned blue and fell off. It is growing back in now.
