A hippopotamus bite

I stripped Casey down last night to give him a bath and was frustrated to notice that he had a partially healing bite mark on the back of his arm.  This bite obviously occurred at daycare.  And I understand that these type of things happen when you get a half dozen kids together in a room, but I also feel strongly that a BITE IS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO TELL THE PARENTS. 

I should know when another child is eating my son for a mid-afternoon snack. 

Without an incident report to share the facts of the incident, I was left to questioning my 2 year old for the details.

“What happened?”

I was met with a blank stare.

“Did someone bite you?”


“Who was it?”

I was met with another blank stare.

“Did Caden bite you?”


Checking for consistency in his statement, I asked again, “Did Carrie bite you?”


My sister asked, “Did Riley bite you?”


Thinking we were getting a skewed version of the facts, she asked again, “Did a hippopotamus bite you?”


“Did Joshua bite you?”


“Did Grandma bite you?”

He looked at us with disgust.  “No!  Nana no bite children!”

    It’s good to know Nana is no longer biting children. It was a rough childhood.
