The Bruise.

After the Kamikaze Kid performed her latest stunt the other day I took a photo to show my Dad and Stepmum via facebook. It is a fairly impressive bruise poor love and is developing into a rather fetching couple of black eyes now.

The first pic:

The developing bruise:


Forgive the world weary look, it took a while to get this picture (she is a perpetual motion demon today). I have to say these pictures just don't do the bruise justice. It is a lovely blue colour and she has a distinct star trek alien look to her. This is a very bad one from the side:

Poor poppet had a disturbed night last night and we think her nose was hurting her a bit. She seems brighter today and we will give her nurofen before bed to pre-empt any wakyness.

On a brighter note we started the run up to potty training today. From now on when we are home she will be naked from the waist down (ha! Who am I kidding, she will be starkers!) in the afternoons and the potty will be freely available. Today it has been Potty: 1 Floor: 0 so far. The plan is to ditch day nappies during the Easter Holidays, I think she is ready but I want to work up to it slowly for her as it is a hell of a change and my children suit the slowly slowly catchy monkey style. I am secretly hoping that she refuses nappies off her own back before that though, she is a very determined child and once she gets an idea in her head that is it, you are just along for the ride!

Poor baby! That second picture made me laugh out loud though!
