We have another black eye

Life has been so crazy here lately I can't remember if I told you R8 made All-Stars for baseball.

I'm so proud of him! And this means that I get to eat pickle flavored sunflower seeds for at least another month!


Hubs and R8 were in the yard the other day, practicing some catcher drills.

And the next thing I swear happened in slow motion.

Hubs threw the ball and R8 didn't move, I don't think he was fully paying attention.

(His own fault if you are going to play catcher)

((I'm such a sympathetic mom, huh?))

And the ball hit him square in eye. Well really the outside of the eye right around the temple and the cheek bone.

R8 even had the baseball stitching print just below his eye brow.

He cried for about 2 minutes and got right back in position and he and Hubs threw for a few more minutes.

And right now R8 has the beautiful colors of black, blue, purple, green, and yellow all around his eye.

It looks as if he has applied some bad eyeshadow from back in the 80's.

And the ironic thing is at some point during baseball season every year since he has been playing he receives a black eye.

Usually it's from a team mate, this time it just happens to be his dad. Hubs really did for sorry for him.

Get a load of this.

we've got a neighbor to our back that plays with his kid in the back yard - jay just keeps saying how he can't wait to have a son to play ball with. i think if he reads this he might can wait!

Nothing like a good ol' badge of honor to start Allstars with!!! By the way, I remember why I disliked Allstars so much~ why do they have to start on the 4th of July during family gatherings?

Oh my goodness. Look at that eye. OUCH! He is so brave to get up and keep on playing. Hope you get to eat a lot of sunflower seeds this weekend : ).
