Landon Bit Chase

So really, my 3 year old bit my 2 year old - in the back - through his shirt. When I asked the kids what happened they both said Chase fell, then I asked again and Landon said " I bit Chase" and I asked Chase what happened and he said "Landon bite me". So back to Landon, I asked him if that was true and he said "No, Chase fell in the playroom", so I said "but you just told me you bit Chase", then.... wait for it... he said "yeah but you would get mad, so I said Chase fell" Ummmm really. Landon just turned 3 in late November. How could a kid that little know that if he told mommy the truth I was going to get mad??? I am trying to understand this. I know why Chase lied. He lied because he does anything Landon does, thats how he rolls. So after sitting and thinking about how I am ever going to really find out what happened, a light bulb seriously went off over my head!! I decided to look at the shirt that I ripped off Chase. And guess what I found, teeth marks and a wet spot, hmmmm, that could only mean one thing. Landon BIT CHASE!!!

So yes I did punish him right away and now he has destroyed his room. I mean clothes, bedding, stuffed animals and whatever else he could throw is laying all over his floor along with his little table and chairs all turned on there side. Oh Boy!!! I have no idea what to do at this point.

So with Chase, I know from the time before when a little wonderful girl at church bit Chase in the face and broke skin (which I am still very upset about, but anyways....). I do know that anytimea human bite breaks skin you have to take them in to the docs for cleaning and antibiotics, especially if the bite is on the face or hands. Well, I might be a bad mom for not taking him last night, but I really didn't want to sit in the ER for ever and wait for someone to look at him, then write a prescription then send us on our way. And besides the bite was through a shirt. So I sprayed Bactin and put a Hot Wheels bandaid over it and I am going to keep an eye on it for a few days just to make sure it doesn't get infected.

As far as Landon goes, I think he will be grounded like forever!!
