Ouchie!

The other day Bill was mowing the lawn and the kids and I were watching him from the trampoline. Ezra pulled himself up onto the trampoline first and after about a half hour he had some dark spots on his nose and forehead. It was getting dark outside so I just thought that it was black marks from the trampoline. I called him over and did the mom spit bath thing and as I was furiously rubbing his forehead he said "Mommy, that hurts!". Then it dawned on me that maybe he had some rug burns going on. When we got inside I checked it out, and sure enough he had two burns on his nose and forehead. It didn't even hurt him enough to say anything when it happened, but they sure looked bad a day later. Of course this happened right before Bill's family all came to visit. Murphy's Law.

  2. That looked bad. But things happen and kids seem to bounce back. Would you mind adding a link to my website from your blog?
    www.jacobskinner.org My website doesn't show up in google and I'm thinking if I get enough people to link to me that I will move up the rankings.
    If you know anyone else who wouldn't mind linking to me...
