But really, what daycare in their right mind would use paint that would stain a child’s hand this bad.  Oh don’t worry they told me.  It should come off in a few washings.

Cold Hands, Warm Heart, Hard Head

I’m wondering how we’ll survive the winter months indoors.  Sophie has school to distract her a few days a week but Henry…man he is already climbing the walls and it’s not even December.  Just in the last two days he’s suffered three minor head injuries. 

The first was while donning a baseball hat which he thinks is pretty cool.  The only problem is he thinks it’s really fun to walk around with it pulled down over his eyes.  This resulted in a bleeding scratch to his wrist and a knot/bruise combo above his left eye.

The second was while spinning….this kids loves to spin.  I’ve given up trying to get him to stop rather I move as many obstacles as I can out of his way and let him have at it.  Unfortunately he seems to be loosing that battle and not quite understanding why it is he keeps falling and yes hurting his head.  He has a faint shiner over his right eye from contacting the floor.

The third was suffered while shaking his head vigorously while standing at the coffee table.  Silly me I tried to stop him and instead of saving him from harm he pulled his head forward out of my grasp and whacked his forehead on the table.  Nice bindi looking knot in the middle.

 At least his injuries are well balanced…no pun intended. (I tried to take a picture but the injuries can’t really be captured on film – thankfully).

Boo to You

Here’s a couple of quick shots from Halloween.  This is only the second Halloween Sophie has picked something to dress up as and pretty much stuck with it from day one.  Last year was Tinkerbell, this year a kitty:

 

She looks so grown up to me in this picture..and tall…and skinny.   But honestly…I have no idea where the alter-ego personality below is coming from.  I must check under her bed for the pod from which this creature emerged:

Perhaps it is a good thing that the Cheeta Girl got voted off dancing with the stars.  I may have underestimated her influence on my sweet and shy daughter.

And you may be wondering why there aren’t many pictures of Henry these days.  Well…this is pretty much how it goes with him.  The first shot gets off pretty well:

Then the remainder pretty much look like this because he has yet to really understand that my camera is off limits:

Well at least you can see his bottom molars are in.
