A Black Eye & A Recipe

Want to see what’s been going on in my world lately?
day it happened
This ^^^
My poor baby got her first black eye 🙁
She was playing and accidentally fell into our coffee table.  It broke my heart.  And of course, I go to worse case scenario.  I’m ready to call the Hubs, have him come home from work, take her to the ER cause I’m positive the fall made her blind in that eye!  I promise I’m not typically the mom that freaks out about cuts & bruises but she kept blinking and acting like she couldn’t see things right! 
next morning
What do I know though? 
Ten minutes later she was up & playing like nothing had ever happened!

    1. Your poor baby! I feel your pain – one day, years ago, I was baby-sitting my 2 year old nephew. I used to sit on an exercise ball and I’d always put it up out of reach whenever my nephew came over. That one day, I forgot to put it away and I turned my back for 5 seconds. Next thing I knew, he bounced off the ball and smacked his head against my metal bed frame. His ear lobe had split apart and was bleeding like crazy! I was so paranoid he’d develop a life-threatening infection I drove him to the doctor. Thankfully he was ok but I’ll never forget how terrible I felt and how sad he looked to be injured. They’re resilient little things, aren’t they?
