Kyle's Black Eye


Kyle was at baseball practice the other night and they were warming up with throwing the ball back and forth. When the coach's son was the one practicing with Kyle and asked him if he was ready. About that time the ball was flying towards Kyle's face and he was unable to duck out of the way. It hit him right in the face. The funny thing about it was Kyle kept playing and when he came in he told me he got hit and he wouldn't really let me see where he got hit because he kept his hand up over his face so I could just the side of his face was red but his hand was covering his eye. Well finally by the end of practice he let me see his face and by now he was already starting to get a black eye. After we got home he was getting ready for bed and kept looking in the mirror and saying that he didn't like it and didn't want to go to school with a black eye. When I went to tuck him in bed he brought me the prongs from his electrical meter and asked me if he stuck it in the goose egg would it pop? After much explaining to him that bruise aren't supposed to be popped he finally went to bed still complaining that he didn't want anyone to see his eye. He is still sore but doing much better. Only Kyle doesn't want to draw any attention to himself because if it would have been the other two they would have proudly sported the black eye.

Tooth Fairy Visits Again


Jericka came home from school and said that her tooth had been bleeding at school and that she wanted Erick to pull it out when he got home. When I looked at the tooth it was barely hanging on but she insisted that she was going to wait till Daddy could do it. On the way back from baseball she started crying saying it was bleeding again. So when we got home she ran to the bathroom to see what was going on only to discover that her tooth was gone. Well by now I figured she must have swallowed it. She then started crying even harder because she just knew that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't leave her anything because she didn't have a tooth to put under her pillow. I was finally able to convince her that she could leave a note and that it would be OK. Later that evening when Erick went to pick Kyle up Jericka went with him and found her tooth laying on the seat where she had pulled it out and dropped it when she saw that it was bleeding. So she was all excited to go to bed that night and see if she would have a new treasure the next morning. The next day she came in waking me up and said that the Tooth Fairy forgot her and took her tooth and didn't leave anything. After going in and looking it was just under her pillow in the back and she didn't look very hard for it. So now we have two down and a lot more to go.
