Only in Boyland...

...will a mommy get bloodied, swollen knuckles because she got struck with a sand-filled "bug box" which was catapulted by her 5-year-old and a broken rake handle. Unintentionally, of course, and truly it was impressive considering I was mowing lawn at the time. It was a "had to be there to get it" moment....and one my knuckles would rather forget.

Oh JJ, pretty funny! I got a black eye earlier this summer while playing with my middlest kid. Boys are an energetic bunch! (of course, my daughter is just the same, only she happens to wear pink and skirts). We HAVE to get together soon. Maybe next week?
