T poked his eye Friday night. Hard. That's the ouch in this blog entry. Apparently, he leaned down while playing with Bandit and a stalk poked him in the eye. After sleeping almost the entire weekend and flushing his eye several times Saturday and Sunday, he decided to see the eye doctor on Monday. The eye is healing well and there's no infection. He should be 90% healed up by this weekend. For now, he's still walking around with that eye shut or covered with a patch most of the time. I'm really glad he's going to be okay and doesn't have any permanent vision loss but I've gotta say the eye patch is a good look for him.
Now for this post's Bravo! Sunday morning, the children presented their Christmas musical at church. M had one of the main parts - you might say the main part. It was a new experience for her on two levels. First, she had never had a speaking part in a play before. Second, she sang in a small group with 4 other girls. She did great and really enjoyed it! People complimented her performance and commented on her singing voice. I can almost see the little wheels in her head turning. It won't surprise me if she tries a duet or solo soon. I love that she has enough confidence to explore her interests and test herself in healthy ways. A & S were part of the chorus and took on angel roles for the nativity story. I must confess: I bribed S with the promise of a "special treat" in exchange for "cheerful cooperation" during the play. For a couple weeks leading up to the play, she tried everything she could think of to get out of the play. She was great at dress rehearsal and did everything she was supposed to do during the play. I baked a chocolate cake Sunday afternoon. Originally, I was thinking her treat would be a trip to the movies to see Legend of the Guardians which is playing at the $2.00 theater. T's eye injury ruled out the movie.
