We Have A Saying In Our House.................

We have a saying in our house and it goes like this;
This is a picture of Ryanne after she ran into our wall/fire place. I have this long medal Christmas card holder hanging from this tall wall and as Ryanne was running to get into bed she ran smack into the wall and card holder. Seriously? Since the child could walk she has been smacking into the same wall/fireplace like we just built it. Ugh!!! Dan & I often hear ourselves yelling through the house,"WATCH OUT RYANNE!!" Poor kid, hopefully she drives better than she walks.
The funniest part is we get to her classroom yesterday morning and I am fully aware that everyone is obviously going to ask her what happened but here is what went down.
Teacher: "Ryanne, what happened to your face?"
Ryanne: "uummmm, I don't really know."
Me: "Are you kidding? You ran into the wall, remember? Almost knocked yourself out, I packed your face in ice, ringing any bells here?"
(Random parents just staring at me.)
Its then that I realize you sound like you have beat your kid and are trying to get them to tell a different story.
That's OK, I hear they serve a mean turkey dinner in jail this time of year!
"RYANNE WATCH OUT!" Gotta' go!!!

Wow, it is amazing how darn cute she can look all banged up! I think she gets cuter every day!

My little Connor has taken almost every injury he has ever had straight to the face. But don't worry, I've heard real abusers don't hit in the face, they try to hide it, so we should both be safe!

Wow that looks like it hurt! And, I know that feeling when you are telling what REALLY happened, and others think you are covering up something. LOL. Lil boogers!

Aw looks like it hurt. Poor girl. I know how it is to run into things, I'm such a klutz. I fall going up the stairs!

Why can't they ever remember?
Maybe its all that brain damage they are receiving every time they run into something. j/k
