Now That's Funny

Introducing Shiner Watch 2006:Please excuse the scary no-makeup face. Hey, you're lucky I combed my hair, even though you don't see much of it in the pictures anyway. If I'd have known that, I might not have bothered.

The pictures are kind of blurry (what do you expect from a self-portrait?), but there is swelling and the unmistakable beginnings of a black eye, courtesy of my youngest, Sproutie. He took a running leap into my arms, and his bite (what our family calls his pacifier) caught me squarely under the eye. The way I bruise, this will be a full-blown shiner by morning.

Hey, if you can't laugh at yourself, then what is this world coming to, I ask you?

Did I mention that I was a total dork? I mean, who takes pictures of their blooming black eye and puts it on their blog?? Oh, yeah. Me.

OH, NO!!! Geez, Sproutster--maybe you oughta give up that bite sooner rather than later. LOL! Poor mommy. :(

Ouch! I bet that hurt!

I realized that I had a huge bruise on my butt yesterday. I'm sure it was kid related, but don't remember is happening. Having kids is a contact sport, I'm telling you.

Eeeek! Now you just need to go hang out somewhere public and see how many people give you that "pitiful battered wife" look.

I guess I got lucky that J never managed to do similar damage to me with his bobo. He weapon of choice was (and still is) his razor sharp nails.

Hope it fades quickly.
