My Black eyed Bruiser

*Non crafty post*

Hi all,

Well we've had an exciting week in our house. Em has moved into her "Big Girl" room, which isn't finished yet. I still have her curtains on layby & a few other things I want to do to her room. But at least Em is happy, she has been dying to move into her big room for at least a month now. I am so pleased that she loves the new room. As I didn't want her feeling that she was being pushed out of the only room she has known since coming home from the hospital.

As you can see from this picture my beautiful clutz of a daughter has given herself a shinner. After being told at least 20 times not to run in the house she did & then tripped over herself (my dd will trip over a hair given half a chance!) & ran into the window sill. Thankfully she didn't go through the window itself, but she gave herself & us quiet a scare! So now when we go out we have to explain that no we don't beat our child she's just a clutz ;). Her legs are always covered in bruises from various scraps she gets into but this is her first black eye.

I thought I'd share a picture of my dh & Em giving Tom "Bucket Head" a hug. As ususal Tom didn't want any part of it. So it's not the best picture in the world. We are hoping that we can take his "bucket" off soon. He still has one sore that hasn't healed but we suspect that Tom has been able to still lick at it (yes dispite having a bucket on).

Well it's getting late so I'd better be going to bed. Have a great weekend & TTFN xoxoxoxoxo

Paula... what a beaut shiner. Poor wee thing... I too had a clutz who would always be in A & E with cuts, scrapes and damaged bones.... mostly not broken but lots of bruises and sprains!!!! Take heart, they do grow out of it, eventually

Poor little sweetie! Gigi is a clumsy-wumsy, too. She's avoided a shiner so far, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time. Love the picture with the cat - I can just feel his feline distaste from here!

Poor Em ... now that's what a I call a shiner. I hope it doesn't feel as bad as it looks.

That reminds me of when my 5 year old daughter ran into her dad while he was playing tennis on the wii. She had quite the black eye. Yep. She told everybody her dad hit her with a wii controller. Congratulations on the big girl room! It's always an exciting, yet bittersweet thing to watch them grow. :)

Hi, Paula! What a shiner Emma has! That is definitely a pic for scrapbooking! And poor Tom! It is so undignified to have to wear a bucket on your head! :-)
