For MY Baby Book

This is one "first" I am certain Mama doesn't have documented in my baby book...

My first black eye

It's a complicated story, really.  But let's just suffice it to say that Ethan inherited my hardheadedness, in the literal sense of the word, and my eye was the unfortunate target of a wayward goodnight kiss.

That picture was taken not long after it happened, and I could feel it swelling by the second.  It gave me an insane headache, but thankfully the pain was eventually relieved by a couple of Advil.

After some ice pack therapy - holy goose-egg, Batman!

I knew it looked rough last night, but I was pretty sure it would look even more interesting today.  Of course this would be the week that I have umpteen places to be, starting first thing this morning!

Nope.  That's not a bad make-up job.

The swelling is down, at least, but I have a feeling ROY G. BIV and I will be good friends by the end of the week.

As for Ethan? He complained of a headache right before falling asleep last night, but woke up this morning with no evidence of our collision.

And, lesson learned.  I will be tucking in Ethan with the light on from now on.

Wow. That's a nice shiner!

Two suggestions...

1) It's almost Halloween. Play it up like it's part of your costume.


2) Paint the other eye just like it and play it off as overdone make-up.

How did Ethan's head fare in the battle of dome rock?

Oh no! It is quite colorful though. I agree that you should just do the other eye too and swear it's THE thing to do with eye make-up! :)

Ouch! I bet Ethan said 'I sorry Momma'.

Love Grandma A.
