Last week Laird and Dylan both got their first major 'boo-boo's'.
Laird's injury happened when I was at work. In fact, it happened 5 minutes before my 1st grade class arrived. If you have a child that has been in the care of someone else, whether it's daycare, a baby-sitter, or a relative, then I'm sure you have experienced the 'come home fast' phone call.
Astou calmly said, 'Something has happened...'... and then my stomach dropped.
Laird was fine, but had a giant goose-egg the size of a golf ball on his forehead. The day after, the injury looked a lot worse, as in between his eyes turned blue-green from the bruising. Apparently Laird and Dylan were having a 'tug of war' over their favorite toy. Clearly Dylan won the struggle, and the favorite toy has gone into hiding.
Then, a few days later in Somone, little Dylan, fell and got a large rug burn on the side of his face. To make him feel better, all the boys wore band-aids on their faces that day.
On a lighter note, Laird has discovered the yoga position, downward facing dog. He loves to do it, and will giggle with pure joy when viewing the world upside down.
