big brothers take care of little sisters!

Tonight we had quite a traumatic moment. I told Isaac to keep Zoey out of the bathroom- she tends to enjoy messing around in the toilet. I heard him telling her she wasn't allowed to go in there and then I heard a loud slam... followed by a ear piercing scream. I knew what I was going to find as I ran down the hall. Zoey was holding her limp hand screaming at the top of their lungs and Isaac was freaking out. It was pretty bad. Chris and I debated on whether or not to take her to urgent care... and although her all 4 fingers swelled up and bruised, she started using her hand like normal so we stayed home. We explained to Isaac what had happened and how to keep it from happening again and then we all prayed for Zoey. Although it was an awful experience, it was neat to see how much Isaac was concerned for his baby sister. He continually wanted to make sure she was alright and wouldn't stop hugging and kissing her to show her he loved her. This parent thing can definitely kick adrenaline in gear, that's for sure!
