My boy had fallen victim to his own prank.
He is always up to some practical joke or other, and tries to give us a fright at any opportunity. Well he gave a girl in his class the mother of all frights! She jumped so high and whirled around that she knocked him off his feet.
In his own words, he face planted onto the concrete of the playground . Thankfully, he sustained no severe injuries and has an impressive scrape on his nose.
Fast foreard to yesterday morning. We were getting geared up to head off to the library. The kids were playing in the front garden while Murray and I grabbed the few last minute things we had forgotton.
Then I heard it.
The screaming from my poor girl. She had tripped. She had fallen. She had face planted on the concrete path.
Yes she too is now sporting "a skint nose"
What's the chances?
Now please excuse me while I go and teach my children how to fall. No please do not tip over like a tin soldier hitting your head on whatever hard surface may be underneath you. Please put out your hands, yes hands are precious but not quite as precious as your head!
