Thursday Thirteen # 6 Blotch, Continued

So here were many of the guesses as to the culprit of the blotch.

1. Got into mom's lipstick
2. Lipstick from a lady's kiss
3. Mailbox crash
4. Bike Fall
5. Twin cherry popsicle
6. Sidewalk crash
7. Screen Door crash
8. Tree crash
9. Rug Burn
10. Cat Scratch
11. Brother Scratch
12.Red Tie Dress (not really a guess, but it was a funny comment)
13. I loved the idea of magic marker to erase it

In actuality, it happened at church.

The real story actually isn't terribly interesting, really. On Sundays after church, I teach several piano lessons in the choir room. While I was teaching, Aaron came in and I noticed the blotch. He, of course, couldn't tell me where it came from. It wasn't until a half hour later as we were FINALLY leaving church that Steve told me what had happened.

Apparently, Aaron decided to see if he could balance ON TOP of a ball. Imagine his surprise that the ball did indeed roll out from under him, plummeting him into the cement floor of fellowship hall. Steve assures me that he was right there when it happened, Aaron didn't cry a bit, and that it looked "much worse" before he cleaned it up.

It looks much better now but it was just so painful looking that whole day.

Well, since you were at church-- I wonder if the Lord helped the fall not hurt quite so much...???

What a trooper!

Ouch! Poor little guy. Peanut has a big bump on her head because she feel from the 2nd step of the bus and hit her head on the sidewalk. I was not too happy when I got all the facts and learned she was placed there and then the aid left her unattended to put another kid on the bus. I sent a gentle reminder today to not leave her alone! Sorry, guess I'm still a little upset about it and this reminded me of it. I wish it would have just been the lipstick.

Ouch cement floor! I would have cried if it was me. What a big brave boy!

Steph said...

Ouch Ouch Ouch that hurts from here!

my wonderful men... said...

It looks as if one of the elders (ladies) of course gave him a kiss before she left.

If that's a mark from a fall then I say OUCH! Poor baby! Now he does need a kiss to make it all better.

Little boys, always something.....

My boys are always getting into scrapes like this, and then proudly recounting later what caused their 'battle scars'.

Boy, I've sure been through this with my boys! I have 3 boys and 2 girls and man do my boys get hurt a lot. LOL. My girl just hates to take risks. The boys think it's all worth it.

Chris said...

What a boy! I can honoestly say that my girls have never tried this one at least not yet!

OUch that hurts! Dylan loves to try things like that, except he doesn't learn and will just keep doing it over and over. You gotta love boys.
