Picture Day Mishap

On picture day, I got a phone call from the school nurse that Brookie had taken a pretty good head dive at recess and had scraped up her forehead and nose pretty good.  Me, being the excellent mom that I am, immediately asked, "Was it before or after pictures?"  I think this kind of threw the nurse because she hadn't even asked Brooke that obviously important question. (That must not be the typical parent's response.) They said I should probably come get her and take her to see the Dr. because it was a head injury.  This is what I saw when I walked in:
Ouch!  Funny thing is the first thing Brookie said to me when I walked in was, "Don't worry Mommy, it was after pictures!"  Haha...I guess she knows me! She said she was running out to recess after pictures and her toe caught on the wood border of the swingset and she fell face first into the sand.  She said she should have just ducked her head and she could have done a forward roll!  She wasn't crying at all and said she just had a little headache.  We headed to the Dr.'s office and on the way she said she was hungry, so we went and had a yummy lunch and after that she said it didn't hurt and could we just go home.  We did and had a fun little afternoon of no school! Just some mommy/daughter time.
