What is the worst injury your dc had ever given you?

This morning while I was pretending to myself that I didn't need to get up to change 7 month old dd, she leaned over and thrust one finger inside my nose and one on the outside, grabbed and PULLED. This led to a profuse nosebleed.
Who can better this?

Black eye and other miscellaneous bruises only, thankfully.

I know a friend has just had a fun filled trip to A&E to get a pea out of his ear, kindly placed there by their three year old.

Fractured front tooth?

Ok holyfocaccia you win, at least I could fix my own nose. Hope it was still while you were getting free dentistry post babies.

What is this apart from a torn fanjo? confused

Not me, but a friend's husband got stabbed in the eyeball by a strand of uncooked spaghetti wielded by their toddler. That required a trip to A&E too...

I get beaten up (elbows, knees, feet, fingers, headbutts) on a daily basis... DS is 3.25.

Broken nose then a black eye a few months later thanks to restless co-sleeping toddler.

Fat lip from a quick backwards headbutt when DD2 was a baby.

I had a bit of flesh dangling off and everything.

Holyfoccacia I am in the same boat, what was the outcome, root canal, bridge, implant? I am in fear of costs and further pain!

I know someone whose children have broke her nose 3 times shock all accidental but still...

Its a recent injury, and for now lavita they are leaving it as it is not causing me any pain..but the moment it does they want to do root canal.


Thanks for nutting me, dd1..good job I love her to bits isn't it grin

Fat lip twice. Once from a headbutt and once from the corner of the iPhone (thankfully I had my mouth closed otherwise I think there would've been damage to my tooth!).

LaVitaBellissima Thu 09-May-13 14:56:01

HolyFoccacia, I have already had 3 root canals on it (not that bad honestly) but it is still uncomfortable 6 weeks later. If it does fall out I will opt for a 3k implant <cries>
