Sam's First Shiner

As terrible as I felt for Sam and his eye, it's really a miracle this was our family's first shiner. We have a brick fireplace, two boys who love to wrestle around the brick fireplace, and a father/husband who encourages it...and often times partakes in the wrestling himself. (And I love that he does.)

So, like I said, it's a MIRACLE this is our first black-eye.

Rocky Balboa in diapers.

While his eye was swollen shut after the 'fireplace meets head' incident, by bath-time that evening, the swelling had started to recede and Sam could see again.

Grandma's - You'll be relieved to know that one week later, all that remains is an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny scab on his forehead. Not a single stitch was required. In fact, I think Sam was actually quite proud of his eye. Henry thought it was quite funny.

And we've been careful not to draw too much attention to it...afraid Sam might enjoy the attention too much and try the stunt again.
