Chin Up

I had a different post planned for today. Something writerly, I suppose, but it got a taken off the rails part way through the day. Today was Lucy’s birthday, and even though I had plans to do some baking and shopping and all that fun stuff, things got ugly when she fell off swing set at school and split her chin open. (Seriously, it’s REALLY ugly. Took 3 stitches to close. Which doesn’t sound like much, but she turned 5 today. She’s got a tiny chin.)

Anyway, that aside, I was a bit of a wreck, even though in the grand scheme of things it’s not that big a deal.

And so, I have made my darling girl her requested strawberry cake.

And plied her with gifts of Hello Kitty and My Little Pony.

And a stuffed hedgehog, who she so aptly named “Justin Beaver.”

And afterwards? Why, yes, I think I *will* take a gander at Thor and X-Men: First Class.

    Happy Birthday Lucy!  Sorry to hear about the chin.

    Funny thing, I watched Xmen First Class last night, watching Iron Man 2 now, and I purchased Thor today to watch later tonight 🙂

    I haven't seen either movie. Lemme know what you think! *please*

    And yay for treats for her understandably shellshocked mother!
