Little Boy Blue... And Black... And Bloody

Just two days ago Cavan took a wicked fall/jump off of a little chair and landed face first on his wooden toy chest. It left his right eye brow and eye lid scratched up, swollen, bruised and there was little bit of bleeding.

Today he outdid himself. He was spinning himself to become dizzy in the living room and then he would fall over laughing. It was hilarious! But then he decided to spin and run. Bad combination. He ran head first into our kitchen table and gave himself quite the gash over his left eye. There was so much blood! He got over the tears pretty quickly and was just pissed off that I was holding him trying to stop the bleeding. He wanted to go back and play.

So now the kid is going to have two black eyes and he looks a mess. I love my rough and tumble boys, but they are going to give me gray hairs soon.
Check out that gash!


Yeah... it really bothered him, can't you tell?

He was just happy that he got to see his daddy!


All repaired and ready to go- thanks to Daddy!

He's going to have an awesome "tough guy" scar when he gets older.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall watching Matt's reaction to see his patients/ family come in all black, blue and bleeding. Does he just roll his eyes?

Amazing how much more "whole" he looks without the gaping hole visible! At least he hasn't lost any teeth yet. ;)

Sarah- I felt bad because I totally over react. There was just so much blood!! My poor husband... he does roll his eyes.

Michael- this kid is going to covered in scars!

Fawn- no missing teeth, but he has chipped two so far!

Hanna took a fall this weekend that ended up in a emergency trip to the dentist - she now has a chipped tooth, and two teeth that we are hoping survive and don't have to get pulled....it sucks when they hurt themselves!!!!!

Isn't that what all boys do? My brother when we were little did the same thing. Except it was the corner of the coffee table and we had a baby sitter at the time. I may or may not have been chasing him.
