I finally felt like the grass was grown in enough today to let the boys play in the back yard. This spring it looked pathetic and it wasn’t use-able at all. I seeded it and covered it in some of my very own fresh compost and it looks lush and lovely again. OOOOO I love using my own compost for things. How exciting.
ANYWAY, the kids were running around naked. They played with the hose and the sand table and blah blah blah. THEN my dear dear Silas tripped over the hose and dove head first into the edge of the step…which just happens to be a cement paver.
As I was picking him up I was certain I was going to see blood and that we’d end up at the ER today getting stitches. I saw his face and there was the beginnings of a goose egg that was growing before my eyes. OOOOOOOOOO I hate that. it just kept growing.
So I cried, called Brent, talked to my darling friend on MSN who also happens to be a nurse and concluded that he will be just fine. I filled him up with Tylenol and Motrin, tried to get him to put a cold magic bag on his head..to which he replied “I don’t think so” and now I’m having a beer. He’s watching cartoon and eating an apple. So I’m sure he’s fine. I’m less fine I believe.
Silas just said to me “mommy is beautiful white, Silas is black and Ikey is butter. Daddy is wango”.
Yup…he’s just fine…we know what especially from the “beautiful” part.
Gosh I need this beer.
At least I know this medication I’m on allows me to cry right?
Anyway, I always have you guys in mind so of course I photographed the bump on his head…just to break your hearts a little more.
Poor baby 🙁

Canada Day was uneventful. Alesha came and took Silas swimming at the pool (dangit I love her) and then we went to this celebration and um…well lets just say it ended with me angrily walking away from Silas with my hand over my eye and a swelling lip.
I’m all about embracing autism but SERIOUSLY, the hitting can just get to be too much!!
Anyway…in celebration of Canada Day 🙂
