Almost Perfect...

***Updated picture...

Today was an almost perfect day...until Maia had a bit of an accident. So she was riding passenger in Noah's power wheels Jeep this afternoon and apparently Noah decided to go off roading. He hit a curb and turned too quickly and Miss Maia Belle fell out of the car face first onto the pavement. I missed the incident. I was outside playing with the kids and had to step inside just for 2 minutes to use the restroom. By the time minute number 2 rolled around, I hear Ricky entering the house holding an hysterical Maia. The blood drains out of my face as I see the blood coming from Maia's nose. I grab her and do a quick inspection for broken bones. I hear Noah say "Maia fell out" and  I demand an explanation from my husband. He informs me of the accident and I ask him how he could let this happen... and as I am in the middle of my reprimand, he grabs the camera and takes a picture. My two choices in that moment were to choke him or laugh. I laughed and then got back to worrying about Maia. I calmed her down, cleaned her off, and rocked her for awhile. When everyone was settled and I looked a the final damage, I realized that we would all be confined to the house for the next week until the injuries go away, lest we want someone to call the police on us for child abuse. She looks like she was in a boxing match with Mike Tyson.

Oh man, my stomach got sick when I saw your FB post. I immediatley thought "what happened to her at my house that I did not notice?" Poor baby, it looks like her upper lip is swollen too. Well, I guess it could be worse. But I promise that I will not be calling CPS or the police on you;)
