How Guilty Should I Feel For My Baby's Stitches?

My baby has four stitches in her finger. :( I was in the van with her, we were warming up and waiting for the other kids to finish sledding. I forgot the recyclables were in the back and she was looking out the window. Next thing I knew she was crying and blood was everywhere! I feel so bad. She cut her finger on a can good lid. I should have remembered those were there and I should have been back there with her not warming my legs up front. I feel guilty and wish i could get over it. Any suggestions?

Accidents happen to everyone, so long as you learnt something from it it is not your fault, there will probably be more little scrapes in the future, these things happen....don't feel bad...
