What Julia Ward Howe, founder of mother's day, actually said in her mother's day proclamation:
Arise, then, women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts, whether our baptism be of water or of tears!
Say firmly: "We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies, Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience. We, the women of one country, will be too tender of those of another country To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."
From the bosom of the devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice." Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession. As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil at the summons of war, Let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead. Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means Whereby the great human family can live in peace, Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar, But of God.
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask That a general congress of women without limit of nationality May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient And at the earliest period consistent with its objects, To promote the alliance of the different nationalities, The amicable settlement of international questions,
The great and general interests of peace.

And THAT is why you do a full physical exam.

Just in case you were wondering -

It is totally believable that a 7 month old could fall out of a toddler bed, land on a pillow, and cry.

My 10 month old has rolled off the top of our big bed and landed on the floor sans pillow more than once. There was lots of crying.

If the fall from toddler bed onto a pillow results, however, in a brain hemorrhage and a fractured liver the story gets somewhat less believable.

Some days my job makes me happy - this was not one of them.

WHY? Why would people do this? How does this help any cause?

For +David McDaniel  and +Eric Olson and all my other friends who love spiders.  A similar thing happened to me when I killed a big spider and it exploded into 800,000,000 baby spiders but I didn't get pictures.
