Our Little Tough Guy {Personal Photography}

Well... this week our son came home with his first black eye.  He said, "It's a shiner, mommy!"   (cutie)

So, here is how it happened...

He and some of the kids at his after school program were playing a game he called "Monkey in the Middle" -- sounds crazy to me!  Apparently the game consists of throwing shoes in the air and I'm guessing someone is in the middle???  So a flying shoe hit him in the eye.  Of course, my question was, "Campbell, was  there an adult in the room?"  Hmmm...

Oh well, I am sure it is the first of several over the course of his childhood, teen years, and possibly manhood.  I'm just glad this one was an "accident" and there wasn't anything worse that happened!

I tried for several days to have him let me get a picture of it and this morning he did.  And it makes me giggle that it was this morning after he had slept in a black "muscle t" (I usually call it something different!) AND he had his typical just woken up bedhead that I adore!!!
