H&M HATES ME
when we got to h&m i got two pairs of leggings and headed to the counter and cohen was behind me standing by the escalator. i probably should have been watching him better but i was trying to pay and he usually doesn't need someone to be on him every second. he started to go down the escalator and i guess he changed his mind and tried to go up the down escalator and hit his knee pretty hard on the stair. he started crying and when i looked over my shoulder all i saw cohen laying down on the stair holding his knee and slowing being carried to the first floor.** no big deal, he is always getting hurt and it was just a bump and this will explain to him why i say don't play on the escalator.
apparently it was a very big deal. he was greeted at the bottom by a very distraught employee who snatched him up and carried him around the store yelling "he needs to see a doctor!" in german (???) and ran up to me and yelling at me in german. i had no idea what she was saying but cohen was fine, besides the humiliation he already felt that she was making way worse. i'm so glad that kevin was with me and was able to calm her down and explain that he was fine and that she was really making a huge deal out of nothing and that he didn't need to see a doctor (his knee wasn't even red!). after all the commotion died down a little i had to sign a piece of paper that said i wouldn't sue or try to have them pay for the doctor that i wasn't going to in the first place.
its been a long time since i've had one of these "mom moments". i thought i was a prodigious overreactor but i'm handing over my crown.
