The Good, The Bad, and the Clumsy

The Good News is this head injury from last week has healed.
If you will remember from an earlier post, right here. Nicholas walked into an open door at school and banged his head up a bit.

The Bad news is he has several more minor injuries this week. As you can see from the photo's.

He actually skinned up both knees and scraped his thigh but this was the best I could do in the picture department. He did not think it was very funny to photograph his injuries. Sorry Nick. These injuries were acquired at B's new office. He was playing on the sidewalk in front of the building and not paying attention. He fell off the sidewalk and that was the result.

This injury occurred today at T-Ball. He was sitting in the dugout, patiently waiting for his turn to bat. Ok, probably not patiently but he was sitting down like his coach told him to do (repeatedly I am sure) when one of his team mates pushed him off the bench, which is several feet off the ground. I am not going to say much about his team mate, but the boy is about twice Nick's height and weight and has some emotional issues and is not always able to control his own actions. It is a rather big ordeal that I will save for another post. Regardless, I don't think this boy meant to seriously injure Nicholas, in fact he seems to really like him. Regardless, it was a pretty nasty fall and the coach thinks we were lucky the arm was not broken since that and his elbow bore most of his weight in the fall. It was very traumatic for N, he was hurt and his feelings were hurt that a friend pushed him. It required several minutes of Mommy snuggles and kisses, which I was only to happy to give. All too soon, he was back to business and hit a single and knocked in a run. Wooot!

Whats that? Another injury you say? Ah, yes, the fall from the bench happened in the top of the first inning. During the top of the third inning, after N scored a run he was walking to the dugout. Apparently he was just overcome with excitement and pride because instead of paying attention to where he was going his mind was on other things. And he walked right into a bat sitting on the should of one of his teammates. How he managed to hit it hard enough to bruise and cause a knot, I don't know how but he did.

The Clumsy... well I think that speaks for itself, poor little guy. He is going to need a lot of Mommy loving and kisses until it heals. Darn ; )
