Oof, I was super prone to “minor” head injuries as a kid. Never got a concussion from it, but from 2-6 years old I had around 20 stitches and 16 staples put into my head over 10 separate incidents. I’m glad your kiddo’s okay, and hopefully you didn’t worry too much about it. Showing her classmates the staples will immortalize her as a badass.
The secret behind being really really really *ridiculously* good looking.
When I was 5, my little buddy and I were in his backyard digging for earthworms. We were doing pretty well with just our handheld shovels, but he wanted to show off AND find us more worms, so he told me to wait right there and he'll be back with something better for us to use.
Well, he came back with a full-sized garden hoe that he was trying to lift but since he was 5, he lost control and the tool came down on the top of my head.
Memories fade in and out after that point about that day. Reaching up and not even touching my head, just hovering over my hair, and then bringing my hand back to look at it and seeing it dripping with blood; my Muppets shirt soaked red and hanging outside to dry on their picket fence.
But the weirdest (maybe second weirdest) aspect of that experience was what happened at the doctor's office. The doctor was apparently out of stitches (?!), so my head was bound and medically stapled. My mom had to re-wrap my head over the next few weeks after baths and I was ecstatic that I had something (sort of) in common with ancient mummies with which I was obsessed at the time.
Hope your little monster is doing alright. I panic anytime my 5 yo trips i couldn't imagine this happening.

What'd she crack her head on? Coffee table? Counter edge? Grizzly bear?
There's more to life than having really, really, ridiculously squishable cheeks.
I totally empathize with you. I, too, occasionally want to take office equipment to my daughter. Stay strong, fellow parent, stay strong.
