Wordful Wednesday: injuries but not on my watch

I went out of town (Sundance Film Festival, it was awesome and I’ll post pictures and recap later) and while I was gone I got a phone call from my kid’s school. Little Miss had bumped her head while playing with a friend and had a red mark on her forehead but was otherwise fine. Ok, great, not much I could do being that I was in Utah and all. A few hours later, the school called again to inform me that Fussypants had a mark under his eye, the teacher hadn’t seen what happened and he said it didn’t hurt but they deduced that a friend must have bumped him while playing outside. Again, relief, as I was in freaking UTAH. My folks were picking the kids up that day, so I told them what to expect so they would not be alarmed and sure enough, my mom called to let me know that Fussypants did indeed have a shiner and Little Miss did indeed have a red mark on her forehead. But Fussypants let me know that her hair covered it so you couldn’t really see it.

When I got home on Sunday, hunky hubby told me that Little Miss had taken a digger and cut her lip. Fussypants informed me there was blood.

On Monday, we figured that we’d better get Little Miss a passport and renew Fussypant’s (his expired on his 5th birthday) so we could take them with us on our Mexico vacation in March, being a family vacation and all.

After I had the photos taken, I realized they will, for the next five years, look like prizefighters with the cut lip and black eye.

Awesome.

In these pics, the shiner and cut lip are hard to see (circled), but in the real pics, you can tell!

Summer Fun Show Off

Have I mentioned lately that Shell (Things I Can’t Say) has the best link ups? I’ve known about this one for weeks but almost missed it due to my self-imposed blog hiatus. Busy is good, but not always.

But here are a few summer fun pics, and a good reason why I haven’t not been blogging…it’s been sunny and I’ve been playing (and also working but let’s focus on the playing)!

How’s your summer been? Show it off! Link up your Summer Fun at Things I Can’t Say for a chance to win prizes from Ubisoft.

Mini Staycation

I’ve been remiss about blogging, I know, but it’s summer and I’m playing. I’ll be back soon, with more toddler antics and mommy moments, I promise. I’m taking a mini staycation July 20-25 and plan on unplugging. My hunky husband’s birthday is this weekend and we are going to celebrate!

Catch ya later!
