Noah got his first black eye this afternoon. He was at school playing in the rec room and he and a little girl ran into each other. Her head met his eye and nose. He got a bloody nose and I’m certain his eye is going to look worse tomorrow. For the record, it was slightly terrifying to look at the caller ID on my phone and see that it was my child’s school. I pretty much knew immediately it was not going to be good news. Everything turned out OK though, and no ER trip was required.
Tonight I was at work and Christian was home with the kids. When I called and told him I was on my way home, he sounded exasperated. It turns out Colin had a Lego incident. Colin had been crying and kept telling him, “Nose! Nose!” Colin had been sick, so he thought he just had a stuffy nose. He wiped Colin’s nose, but Colin was still upset. He looked up there and thought, “Huh. That’s a strange looking booger,” before realizing the “booger” was actually a tiny neon green Lego. Luckily Colin was able to blow it out and again a trip to the emergency room was averted.
