Landon did not get his first black eye just right after I yelled at him: “Stop running!” and my brother-in-law yelled at me: “Would you stop yelling? He’s fine.” Second later Landon ran around the corner after his cousin James and right into the back of a chair. I saw it happen and thought he had hurt his ear, but he actually had rammed the corner of the chair into his check bone. It swelled up right away, and because he was really startled by it and crying on my chest, he let me put ice on it right away, which he usually refuses.
We were celebrating Grandma’s birthday, and she helped as well:
L is very lucky the chair corner didn’t hit his eyeball. So much for being overprotective — I think I’ll keep yelling. Now L is proudly showing off a nice shiner. It’s worse now two days later, but I guess that’s how it goes.
And look who did not wake up a few days ago and announced: “I wanna go to the barber” and did not get a haircut after school:
I did not take a picture out of the bathroom window of today’s sunset because the clouds reminded me of an oil painting. Thought I’d share it lest you get tired of pictures of a certain little boy :)
