The fat lip

As you well know, Tad is the master of pratfalls and bruises. We’ve been over this before.

So, why am I not surprised that 2 days before we’re supposed to have family pictures taken, he gives himself a major fat lip and scab under his lip?

I rescheduled for next weekend.

Hopefully, he won’t develop any new face bruises until after the pictures are over. That may be a pipe dream, though.

How did he get the fat lip, you ask? He decided to climb up a barstool at Obachan’s house yesterday, and then fell off, nearly missing a corner wall and biting his lip on the way down. The lip swelling is pretty much gone, but the scab is going to take a little time.

You have one week, boy. Heal!

    I’m hoping Little Cousin doesn’t get any facial bruises before our family portraits in two weeks, too! Or her father, for that matter.

    Notice how Little Cousin’s Mommy does not seem to mind if I get beat or cut up mind you.

    […] Last week, it was the fat lip. On Tuesday, through a series of events that involves his sister, a coffee table, and pushing, he received a small laceration on his forehead, near his hairline, up above his right eye. […]
