You should see the other kid

That, my friends is what happens when your "I can do everything, Mummy" 17-month old steps off her stool and smacks her face on the kitchen counter. This picture doesn't fully capture the purple, yellow, puffy grossness that is her right eye. The most amazing part? She screamed for a bit and then got over it, and now, just a few days later, it's a bit yellow but mostly healed. The kid's eye was so swollen we tried to ice it (with Saskatoon berries in a ziploc) but all she wanted to do was eat them. Toddlers' resiliency and healing powers truly stun me.

The gray hairs I got watching that eye swell are not so lucky.
