Duck, Duck, Goose Egg!

Apparently this game is a favorite in our house. I'll apologize in advance for all the pictures. However, since all 3 of our kids have now reached this right of passage I felt the need to show both the egg and the culprit.
Last fall, Thomas had his first "real" egg...

...when he met up with these!

Zac was playing innocently while holding a revolving sprinkler (while it was on). Unfortunately, when it sprayed him in the face he was standing a little too close to....
...THIS!


And, last but not least, our most recent transaction was last night. Daddy had come home from being on-call and was having a little play wrestle match with the kids. An accidental kick from one of her brothers and an attempt to catch her by Dad...Elise landed face first....




...on the fireplace stoop!

There you have it, we've been EGGED! The swelling has gone down on Elises head but we didn't realize until last night while she was sleeping that her nose was hit in the process too. Her forehead is swollen and leads straight down to the bottom of her nose. I'm hoping she doesn't end up with black eyes...2 weeks before starting kindergarten. I can only imagine the questions!

Oh my gosh! Good thing they've got hard heads! Sofia says: "poor Elise, she must be hurting a lot!".

So, sad. And the worst part is that I happen to know that the documented eggs aren't the only ones to have graced your kids sweet heads!

Tim & Ashlee Nilsson said...

Oh ouch! That looks so terrible. Poor Elise. Uncle Tim thinks it's gonna be a black eye.

Leslie said...

That made my eyes water! I am glad she is okay. I can only imagine your little guy falling down all those stairs. It is amazing how resistant kids are!

I don't know how I missed so much of your blog already...oh, ya, morning sickness ALL DAY. Well, that is sooo sad about the kids. Yes, you really did get "egged" at your house. I hope they all get better soon! I enjoyed catching up on your family :)

Good grief Shauna - you better stay home or your might get turned into Social service. :) J/K I hope you didn't have any family pics scheduled or anything. Take care and heal up!

Shawna, I love your blog! Your kids are so cute and so big now. Zac is so cute in his little glasses. I just read your post about your friend Ali, it is very touching and I'm so sorry for the loss.

Hi Shauna, after the blog talk tonight at ballet I found yours, and linked you to mine so I can keep up...Michelle P.

A little bit of crazy.... said...

That made me go "ohhhwefffggghhhh."

those shots gave me chills. I've seen those before. The worst thing for me is remembering the sound made when it happened.

We joke that everytime our kids get a frontal lobe egg they have a personality change. He he.
