How could I have forgotten to tell you about J's black eye!?!
As most of you know, my son just adores walking in front of and behind swings while people are swinging on them. He's enjoyed this game of chicken since he was just a wobbly little toddler. We've told him over and over, "J, you can't walk by a swing, you're gonna get hit in the face!" He always would reply in one of two ways. 1. "Why?" or 2. "OK." sometimes he would even reply with a combination of answers 1 & 2. But no matter which answer he chose, it was always accompanied by the look of 'my parents are idiots'. He just couldn't fathom that he was putting himself in the presence of extreme danger!
Well, anyway, last week he finally lost his game of chicken..got whacked good in the eye. He still managed to think it wasn't his fault, and that Teigen MUST have done it on purpose. No, son, that's just not so. So, although he is still confused as to why he can't walk by swings, he has promised that he won't do it anymore. And, he's also decided that when he's waiting to get on a swing, he will wait to get on until after someone else is off instead of attempting to go up close to them and ask if he can have a turn while they are in mid swing and their body is moving at mach speed towards his face.
