how he rolls

This is how our boy rolls...

Last week, we went to the pool.  He got this splinter, more than 1/2" long and about as big around as 2 toothpicks, while eating his pb&j.  It ended in us visiting Nana's work where they extracted it tiny piece by tiny piece.  It was not pretty.  He was brave though, he didn't cry, just buried his face in a pillow and growled when it became too much.


The very next day, we were at a cookout.  He flipped off a hammock and wacked his eye on a landscaping timber.  He cried and when we got home, it was swollen and red.  Now, it looks like this...


I cannot begin to tell you how many boo-boos this man has had, but we have pictures to prove it.  We've been to the emergency room for this kind of stuff and he's had indentations  in his forehead for some time from these bumps and bruises.  they're now gone.  K has never had this kinda trouble, but he's prone to accidents.  Here's a couple of the worst...

We were at the new house of some friends, helping them paint. He was sliding down a big card board box and managed to crack the bridge of his nose on a 5 gallon bucket of paint.  Nice, huh?

 
This happened at pre-school.   The playground had been off limits for weeks due to snow  and the first day they got to go out after the ground dried up, he smacked his forehead into a pole.  It truly looked like a devilled egg protruding from his forehead.


After all of these crazy events, I've learned some kids are just prone to accidents.  (i.e. our kid)
