Jumping on the bed

Waddle has a black eye.

For Christmas the boys received a collection of books about the 5 little monkeys. One of the stories entails jumping on the bed. I'm sure you know the song even if you haven't seen the cute pictures to go with it. Well, in our house there is one bed that is available for jumping on. It has always been Widdle's bed. Which ever bed he has slept in (except for the crib) has been available for jumping. Right now he is sleeping in the single bed that goes with our bunk beds. It has rails almost all the way around it. The other day the boys were jumping when Waddle "fell" and landed his head perfectly on the headboard. He hit the railing with the outside corner of his left eye. Thank the Lord, it did not bleed. But, it did bruise right away. On Saturday I took him to have his two year old pictures done and noticed that it was starting to heal. Some of the pictures really made his eye look yellow. Yesterday afternoon it started to look red across his entire eye lid and some yuck was coming out of it. This morning his eye was matted shut, but has been cleaner throughout the day. I'm not sure if he got an infection while rubbing his eye or what is going on. The eye ball is fine, it is the lid and area around that is reddish/pink and a bit of yuck coming out.

After this incident, when Waddle began to cry, Widdle said "Call the doctor." We had been singing while they were jumping and we maybe got a tad carried away with it all. I suppose we won't have monkeys jumping on the bed much around here anymore.

I'm glad his eyeball was not hurt and I am sure that this wont be his last black eye! Love, Nan
