I may bend, but not break

I'm more free than DH is really. We do hover in parking lots.
I'll happily kiss a boo boo, or check out a scrape or carpet burn if I'm asked. But if the scream wasn't the kind that makes my heart start pounding I'm not going to go running. Exception: If it was followed by a crash, then I go running, he's pulled a dresser over once already.
But we have to use the old "If it's not broken, or squirting blood across the room you're going to be fine" with Reme a lot. A hangnail is the end of the world. And if the injury doesn't come with a cool scab, it's not worth having.
L, is the same way. DH hovers.
He's just lucky I'm around when things need minor surgery (aka band aids) he doesn't like blood. LOL
I should add however, DH's parents live on a farm/dump like area, and I have a hard time watching the kids play. Having stepped into broken glass and ruining a pair of shoes last year, and then having watched his nephew run through the area in bare feet made me ask to go home. I'm not sure my kids will be allowed to play outside unsupervised there. There's glass, wires, chickens, dogs, cats, pigs. a burrow all roaming around like they own the place (and they do) and no one really watches the kids... I see it as an ER trip waiting to happen.
