OUCH!

I may have one black eye. Possibly two. Definitely a cracked nose.

Story? Well...ya know how you will go and check on your sleeping children? And ya know how little kids kick in their sleep? Well, I leaned in to kiss J as his leg/knee went flying up. I was a bloody mess. (And you know how well I deal with blood.)

I am not having a happy Saturday so far. My nose is really sore, and I have a whopping headache. It doesn't help that Paul doesn't think it's a big deal.

"You just got punched in the nose. You don't need to see a plastic surgeon to make sure your nose is still aligned properly. I have been hit in the nose tons and it just adds character."

Hmmphf! Character my A**!

p.s. I went to see my Dad, an Orthopedic Surgeon. Nose is NOT broken. Just bruised.

You call your Mama & Daddy & find out who the best surgeon is & have them take a look! "Character" is one thing for a man, but for a beautiful lady like yourself, forget it!! Tell Paul he needs some compassion:)

If you have some gauze you can put them in a Ziploc bag with ice and water. Get them good and cold ring out the gauze and lay over your eyes and nose. This will help with the bruising and swelling and not be as heavy as a washcloth! Hope you get better!

Oh no!!! I agree with Henley on the Horn, your face is too pretty to add character!

bless your heart! my 13-month old is deadly with the remote. and don't dare give her wooden blocks to play with! maybe this will give you a grin ... when my stepsister was big pregnant with my nephew, she walked straight into a pole at the gap. (giant pole right in the middle of the store. weird...) i was with her and laughed so hard i cried! (sorry jen!) ... there she was, big pregnant and with a serious shiner. quite white-trashy! feel better soon! hope paul gets the picture that it IS a big deal!!

Even When I sleep I give nice kicks to my mother unknowingly. But my leg doesn't go so high to hit her nose but her leg or her stomach.goodness you didn't break the bone of your nose.

Oh no! I hope you are feeling better soon :)

Just a little visit to find you hurt...So sorry you're having a bad time of it...poor preppy nose. I hope the pain disappears and the color returns to normal soon. Get well soon...and if possible, without added character! <3

Ouch! So glad your nose is not broken but sorry you're having to deal with the soreness and the black eyes! Hope you heal quickly.
