Head-Butt Black Eye!

Oh, I must be delirious! Enjoy this post while you can, I'm sure I will be deleting it after a good nights sleep! But I was just getting ready to go to bed and saw myself in the bathroom mirror. And I busted out laughing, I've got a shiner from being "head-butted" by Logan yesterday.

As with all toddler head-butts, this one came out of nowhere. Logan reared back with all his might and slammed into my cheek bone. The hit was so hard, I actually thought bone was shattered! I guessed I yelped loud enough that Logan knew I was hurt and he started kissing me right away and "signing" sorry (running his hand across his chest). After a few minutes, the pain subsided and then I sort of forgot about it until a few hours later when I walked by a mirror and thought my mascara had run. I went to wipe it away and yelped again because I realized I was rubbing a bruise.

Gary, Mason and Evan enjoyed teasing me last night and then again this morning when it was much more swollen and purple than it was yesterday. Well, if they could see how purple it is right now, they'd have a whole new round of jokes for me.

How did the only girl in the house end up with the black eye?? LOL


Believe me, the picture doesn't do it justice. My cheek is actually swollen and puffy and the purple bruisin' is much more vibrant in real life! LOL I can hope that tomorrow it's less-purple?

Agh, the perils and dangers of parenting!
