Oct. 11th, 2008 @ 10:02 pm My daughter is on a mission to break my nose.
Tags:
While I haven't yet gotten the headbutt of death, (you know - the one where they try to drive your nose up into your brain) and I thought nothing of it when I was rudely awakened last week by her head firmly connecting with the bridge of my nose. It wasn't one of those 'oh that's making my eyes water' hits to the nose, rather I think the cracking sound woke me up before the pain. At the time I dismissed it as an accident, she was just waking up and didn't have full control of her melon.

Thursday things turned more sinister. Under the guise of making music the little imp was shaking a spice bottle I'd filled with rice for her. I was sitting beside her as she stood at the couch. Shake, shake, shake, CRACK! Through the haze of pain I looked up to see my daughter grinning at me, back to shaking the bottle, wondering what I was doing on the floor. I'm sure if I hadn't been rolling around in pain she would have taken another swing, luckily she was content to carry on making music.

On Friday evening hubby mentioned to me that I had some 'dirt' on my nose. I tried to brush it off, realizing immediately that dirt wouldn't hurt like that. You guessed it, a bruise, right across the bridge of my nose! At least it blends nicely with the dark circles under my eyes...
Who does she think she is?

Logan got me under the chin somehow last week - I almost bit my tongue off. I didn't know it was possible to bruise a tongue but it must be 'cause it hurt for a couple of days afterward.

Yeesh - I didn't know that was possible either - did you have a lot of handouts those days? Independent reading? *G*

Ian gave me a hairline fracture across the nose when he was 2 years old. He got up and walked off like nothing happened, of course! About a year later he gave me a fat lip and again, just bounced off and went on his way like nothing happened. Both of these incidents occurred because he was running up to me when I was sitting on the floor and he threw himself at me, so we decided we'd get a little more stern about the No Running In The House rule after that 2nd time :)

Ouch! I think one of the girls might have head butted me and the other might have popped me in the nose. Both times were the tear-filled, take the child while I howl in pain. But I only remember it being once with each (Thank Goodness). Ouch again when I read about the bruise. She's got some arm!! Hopefully she is a pitcher in softball. HeeHee.
