If you fail to heed my warning, your child may end up looking like this:
Cute, admittedly, but more than just a little like Rudolph. Rophone and the kids decided to walk home from church in the nice weather and I, by default, was elected to drive the car home. I saw what had occurred as I drove past them, so hurried and got my camera to capture the result of the head-lead fall. (After what happened to Big today, Rophone just may join with me in my no-hard-surface-hill-running beliefs.)
Here's an up-close shot-- see the forehead, nose AND upper lip wounds? Ouch!
I snapped a few shots later in the afternoon while Big and Rophone were playing ball. I found it humorous that Big kept getting bonked in the nose with the ball, but wasn't deterred from playing. I'm sure it really stung his nose, but Big just loves playing ball that much.
Rudolph never looked so cute!
