Ouchie Ouchie Ouch!!!

Today when I picked up Matthew I was greeted with this looking back at me.
Ouch! This picture just doesn't show well enough how purple his eye really is.
It turns out that he ran into a table at daycare.
I know, I know. Boys will be boys. And Matty is most definitely a boy through and through. But, still ouch!
The thing I love about our daycare is that they are pretty relaxed about this stuff. I didn't get a frantic middle of the day phone call or anything. There was an accident report when Mike picked him up. They'd given him ice and TLC and watched him at naptime. We couldn't have done anything more.
Truthfully, I feel horribly guilty about it all, but I know this could have happened under my watch. Truthfully, I don't know how it hasn't!
So, perhaps the modelling career will be put off a couple of months. There are worse things, I know, than him having a black eye for his 3rd birthday.
As I type this Matt is doing sommersault off the couch and balancing on a table. Yes, boys will be boys. And mommies will forever feel guilty when they hurt themselves in the process.
It turns out that Matt is just fine. My nerves - a little frayed.

Are you sure he wasn't just fooling around with Mommy's makeup?! Poor little guy, looks like it will be sore.

Wow, look at his gorgeous teeth!!! He must let you brush them really well. The bunny's teeth are already a tiny bit yellow at the top.....she clamps her mouth around the brush.

What a lovely shade of blue...and purple! ;) He looks happy enough, though! Hope it doesn't hurt still! Boyz will be boyz, huh!? Hope you're okay now! :)

Poor Matty Matt, that's a beauty of a shiner! It always amazes me that worse things don't happen to them!!

Our daycare calls us and to be honest I like it. It's not a panicky call it's just a call that says 'hey, your child had an accident and it marked up her face. We just want you to be aware so you aren't suprised when you pick her up.'

I'm cool with that phone call because it's not a surprise when I pick her up!!
Hope it's all cleared up in time for his b-day pics!

I agree with multi tasking mommy...he looks like he got into some pretty eyeshadow!

ouch!
if it makes you feel any better, Lulu has a big bruise across the left side of her face after "dancing with our encouragement" into a table..
I swear it hurts us more than it does them- and it was on OUR watch.
It's amazing how fast they heal though.

Thanks for de-lurking.
