So much so I’ve seen crocs accidents in the net and circulations in emails…I’ve never thought that this would happen within my family. But of course, I’m extra caution. Whenever my kids takes the escalator/lift, I’d make sure they don’t go too near to the side, too near to the inner side of the steps (where the yellow line is), walk out of lift properly. Yes…I’m very caution.
I’ve also told my MIL about this to be careful. And my SIL, being a paed, has always reminded us to be careful. But accidents do happen when you least expected with careless of the MAID!! I’m not gonna blog bout her…she’s going back soon, so probably attention is no longer there, she’s gonna get a pep talk one of these days…you bet :).
So what happened? Last Friday, while I was at work, I received this SMS.
Vyktore foot got caught in escalator. Shoes sticky. Got a superficial cut on leg. Took him to MC (my SIL).
When I saw that superficial…my first thought was OMG!! Sorry, but I’m not very good with medical terms, to me something with a word super means…of great impact….so superficial was like *jialat lor*….the toes are gone :|….
So I picked up my phone and called MIL. I could hear Vyktore wailing behind the phone (as though bringing down the whole clinic). And MIl told me it’s a minor cut, all toes in tact and he can still walk around.
What a relieve. I spoke to SIL as well and she reassured me that he’s alright. No big damage.
I went to MIL’s house during lunch to check on my poor boy. He must be traumatized by the lift now.
He just woke up from his sleep and when he saw me….ou…..he was so manja!!
Vyktore: *hands pointing at the leg*….hmm…hmm..whining at the same time.
Mommy: Ohh poor boy, pain pain at the leg….
Vyktore: He just lied on my shoulder, and then he kept pointing at his leg, He wants me to blow lah…
Sigh…and the poor fella, cause he thought the damage was so bad, he’s limping around haha….and it looks very funny oops…then he go about to everyone in the house showing his painful foot.
My silly MAID, showed me the damaged shoes…my gosh…I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that. Totally ripped off.
So, what we did next. Threw away all the crocs (ori or fake). And we went to get some new shoes for Vyktore & Faythe at night.
He still has the trauma. He didn’t allow us to put shoes on for him :(. Then I found out the other leg, he has blisters all over and the skin is cracking…aiyooo….I feel really bad. That I’m not taking care of him properly. I never notice this when I shower him at nite. Sigh….And this is definitely inherited from Mr. Hon’s foot!!
As for Faythe, she keep chasing Vyktore around with a plaster in her hand. She wants to put plaster for him…hahah….
Faythe is very careful when it comes to escalator. The moment she steps onto it, she will warn everyone don’t step on the yellow line. I’m glad that she always remember this and she reminds everyone. But Vyktore is too young to understand the danger of yellow line.
He didn’t learn his lesson well, no phobia on the escalator still. But now we will hold on to him real tight or even carry him when we come to escalator. Crocs or no crocs, accident can happen too.
So Mommy out there, please watch out for those lil feet and toes. We do not want more accidents like this happen.
