Another Injury

New rule...I'll post every time one of my kids gets injured.  At that rate, I'll be posting at least once a week. This latest occurrence involved Devin and a friend he had over at the house.  Devin and his friend Loic (cute right?  It's french) somehow managed to bang heads together.  Loic never made a peep but had the faint pink sign of a "bonk" on his forehead.  Devin, on the other hand, screams bloody murder and comes down with this on his forehead:

These pictures were taken 3 hours after it happened.  Shortly after it happened it looked like someone stuck a golf ball under his flesh.  It was huge.  Ice brought it down a little bit, but it's still hanging in there.  A little reminiscent of Elephant Man?

Almost Did It

So I almost cut the blog out of my life.  Five months without a close.  Why did I decide to post something?  I have no idea.  No reason.  And I really hate blogging so it makes no sense.  Regardless, here I am. And here are a few updates:

Last swimming day of the year...of course it was.  Here's the before:

And here is the after:

Notice anything?  How about the BIG GAPING HOLE in her mouth?  She tripped, smacked her tooth, (not her lip or any other part of her face, just her tooth) on the concrete and after an emergency trip to the dentist, nothing.  It's gone.  They pulled it out in 10 pieces and now we just have to wait and hope the permanent teeth won't be damaged.  Just 4 or 5 years looking like white trash.  That's not too bad, right?
