First things first...Merry Christmas! Hope your day was wonderful.
Now the explanation.
Yup! Shot my kid in the eye. "Mother of the Year"...that's me!
Before you go freakin' out too much it was with a Nerf gun. And it hit her in the corner of her eye. Close range though. Maybe she should have been wearing her safety glasses. Ya, that's it. Deflect the blame.
She has really matured lately. I expected her to milk it for all it was worth but she didn't. She acted suitably injured in body and spirit and then got over it. She is a great kid.
What near disaster can I plan for her birthday? Stay tuned to find out.
