Ending the controversy

Madeline, engrossed in Elmo. That furry red...well, you know what!

So there it is. In all it's glory. Can you believe one little teeny, tiny scratch could cause such a ruckus? I even got an e-mail from my friend Adrienne in Nebraska (Hi Adrienne!) wondering about all the comments about her "injury."

The story: on Monday, my awesome sister in law, Kathy, was over and as she went to pick Madeline up, Maddy tripped and Kathy caught her on the face with a fingernail. Madeline hardly cried and it bled a teeny tiny bit. Since then, some members of my family have made a bigger deal of it than it really is.

Kathy we love you and it is going to be gone by Sunday! Madeline has no clue that she has something on her face. So that is really all that matters!

Fiest was on The Street today! I was so tickled I ran out to the living room to turn the volume up. I totally freaked Madeline out. Totally awesome! Totally on our DVR!!!

Oh, we've accidentally injured our kids countless times. I'll gladly tell all the stories if you need me to make Kathy feel better.

You didn't mention the OTHER wound (which is on the other side of her face and is mostly healed by now)... the one she got when she slipped trying to climb up on the piano bench at Granny & Poppy's house. Not only did she scrape her upper lip on the bench, but she also whacked the back of her head as she went down. I blame Pop Pop. :)

And don't forget the scratch on her other cheek, that I made trying to pick her up during a 'fit' and scratched her with MY nail.

She is her mother's daughter.

And Fern, I'll send Kathy to your blog...
