When a little MONKEY decides to climb, sometimes MONKEYS fall off the bed (or the playground... in this case). The timing of these events is never at a good time. We were at the park across the street from our house about an hour before I was supposed to leave to officiate a game. We had started heading home after being there for 5 minutes, but because of her objections, I decided to let her have another 5 minutes before going home.
Notice how the circle injury on her cheek matches perfectly the little circle support on the playground? Yeah. All while I was watching her climb up onto a step. RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!! After a visit to her pediatrician, and a CT scan (and finding a sub for my basketball game)... we were headed home to recoup. The CT scan showed no fracture, so its a good week or so with a nice black & blue & purple eye. Her first shiner!
The questionable looks and comments we have received this week have been unbelievable.
