Crying Threat Level

Laura sustained a small injury on her pinky finger today. Yes, there was blood involved. I'm sure that it hurt and that it startled her. However, I was not prepared for the excessive screaming and crying, crying that did not stop for over 30 minutes. Crying that continued through all calming attempts, crying that would not stop after Mommy's excellent Band-Aid application, crying that continued even as she ate her lunch!!! Finally, with a Jolly Rancher sucker in hand, Backyardigans on the TV, and a blanket wrapped around her, Laura was able to contain herself. You can see in this picture the aforementioned injury due her careful hand placement. There must be no chance of bumping the injured area.
According to this handy chart that I composed, today the Crying Threat Level in our home was "SEVERE". If you need to read the chart more closely to assess the Crying Threat Level in your own home, please click on it. And remember, be vigilant! Excessive and unstoppable crying can occur anytime and can effect anyone.
