You should see the other guy...

Now, his facial expression makes this look a little worse than it was :)

Saturday morning, I took all three boys to Timmy's first basketball practice. We were there pretty early, so Max and Sam also played around. Well, Max spotted the water fountain sticking out of the wall and decided to get a drink. When he was done, he bent down to pick up the ball between his feet and smacked his eye on the fountain.

I of course picked him up, but he only cried for about 30 seconds, I distracted him by getting him to pick up the ball upside down and off he went to play. Until I looked at him, and there was already a big lump, bruise, and bleeding. So I left the 2 older boys with other moms to wait for Rich and brought Max to the ER.

You would not have know this child was hurt because he climbed on anything and everything while we waited for the doctor. In the end, they glued the 1/4 inch cut above his eye. He still slept at my mother's that night, but he earned the nickname, "Pirate Pete" because he squinted all day long.. He was fine about sleeping on it though!

Now, if you ask him what happened, he'll tell you, "You should see the other guy!"
