All the King's Men...

Sloan had an interesting day. Interesting and sad.

It stared off well enough; I had my 6-week at the doctor and so he and Ethan had the opportunity to visit Aunt Ang in the morning. For lunch, I decided that we should go somewhere they could run off any pent-up energy before heading home. Enter: Burger King Playground.

Sloan was such a good boy. He ate all that was requested of him before playing and took off excitedly with his new (lame) Star Trek toy in hand. That’s when it happened. When his feet hit the tile in his stocking feet, his face collided with the floor. A picture is worth a thousand words: here’s four.

King? I think not.

Fat lip...

"My toof, Mom! Hurts, um, mouf!" -Sloan

And what does a traumatized boy need? Stolen brownies, behind Mom's turned back, taste best.

Thanks, Ang, for your soothing abilities. I think that I needed it just as much as he did.  

**Student Doctor Daddy thinks he should be fine. We’re keeping an eye on it, and I’m sure you’ll hear more about it should I have to pin my child down at the Pediodontist.


  1. I'm glad I could help...I hope his tooth feels better soon...I think Carson was feeling sympathy for him because shortly after we got home he cut his head on our headboard...he didn't bleed as much as Sloan though!

  2. Forgot I was signed in as Quinn...that was from me.

  3. Poor Sloan,

    He's smart, I say chocolate fixes anything too.

  4. Sloan and Andrea should get together...she has a lip that looks just like his!! Hers is courtesy of the tile floor at Fresh and Easy! Just remember to keep salty foods away!!

  5. Ewww! Is his tooth cracked??? Or is that just blood? Ella did a face plant last year, on glass tile and it moved her front tooth crooked and Carly did a face plant last week on our tile and got a sweet fat lip also. Looks like she's hiding a almond m&m in her upper lip. Poor little babies and their horrible coordination.
