...I would need to do a page for "Baby's First Shiner". Of course, Cal Henry is 3 1/2, not a baby, and let's face it - we made it a lot longer without a black eye than I ever anticipated we would!
Jude and Cal were playing baseball in the back yard (yeah, you know where this is heading, but I was feeling optimistic at the time...) and they decided to set the baseball on the T-ball stand and then BOTH swing at it at the same time to see who would actually make contact. Oh, Jude's bat made contact alright. With Calvin's right eye! It swelled nearly shut, turned red, and one part immediately went black and blue. It was something to see.
By the way, no one actually hit the baseball.
Ah, life with boys...
