Shoot Me! 11 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

I got a phone call from the school this week that my son was holding his ear and crying. I went into town and picked him up. I called the doctors office but we couldn’t get in. So we had this conversation on the way home…

Me: Are you feeling OK?

Son: Yeah, I’m feeling better.

Me: Has your ear been bothering you before today?

Son: No.

Me: So it just started hurting today?

Son: Yeah.

Me: Well, when did it start hurting so bad?

Son: Well, um. Well, I uh. Well, I guess it started hurting when I had my….. uh…. I had my pencil…. uh…. right next to my ear. And then the pencil got jabbed. And then my ear starting hurting.

Me: Sigh….. But you’re OK now?

Son: Yup! I think I’m feeling pretty good. I can go back to school now if can take me there.

Me: Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.

March 236

So we played together outside in the snow. Can you tell what we built together??? It’s a “snow”mobile. Pretty cute I thought!

Shoot Me! It's time to stop hiding behind that camera of yours. Your family is missing you in the picture. So it's time to post a picture of YOU (yes, you) every Thursday with your child, your spouse, your friend, your dog, or even by yourself. Just get in the picture, you'll be glad you did! And just jump in now with 1 of 52, you can do it!

awww poor little man! but at least he's brave enough to admit what he has done. i just hope there's no wound inside. better have him see by an EENT Carin just to be sure :)

Alicia said...

Ouch!!

I'm glad he ended up being fine though.

Karen said...

Yikes...I remember that happened to me once but not in the ear I stabbed my pinky with a sharpened pencil.

I spread my hand wide playing how fast can I move the pencil btw/ the open space...yeah I wasn't as fast and precise as I thought I would be :/

The things we do as kids ;)

btw/ It's so hard to imagine so places still have snow here in TX people have been in tank tops and shorts..Crazy.

Great pics =)
Much Luv,
Karen

Now that is a cool ride. Who needs the real thing right? lol Fun pictures and the story made me laugh. I remember when I was in first grade a pencil went through the roof of my mouth. I had it sharp side in between my teeth. Someone pushed me from behind and I jammed it on the table. Bled horrible. Penicils are dangerous!

Ouch, that's a bit scary. Good thing he didn't jam it so deep. Love the snowmobile, good job!

Just Shoot Me a visit when you can. Have a good day!

Carin,

That is so cool! Not that he jabbed himself in the ear with a pencil but that you all got to hang together and have some fun.

Hugs,

Kat

Kim said...

We have had some of those situations at our house too. I LOVE the snowmobile. I am happy to report that our snow is gone and we are expecting a 60 degree day.

Sharon said...

I am glad to hear that he is better.
I hope he did not do any ear damage however.
Love the photo of the play time together.
Thanks for sharing

Ah well, he got an extra day with you. Bet he remembers that day even when hes a grown man...."remember the day I stuck a pencil in my ear, we built an amazing snowmobile!!!"

Great pictures and the snow looks so lovely!

Ben, Heather and kids said...

can you imagine how dull and uneventful life would be without lil boys (and girls, or at least mine)??

Love the ride.. and not missing the snow! :)

Becca @ Our Crazy Boys said...

Is it Thursday already???

Oops :)

I think that maybe he just needed some "Mom time." Days like that are great!

Arlene said...

I hope his ear is now perfectly ok. Looks like you had fun in the snow. These are memorable moments. :)

I wish one day we can play snow too right in our own backyard to ease us from the heat of the high temperature El Nino phenomenon is bringing us.

He & Me + 3 said...

Well, I am glad that he got better so quick. :) Cute pictures and I could totally tell what you built. ADORABLE!

Amy said...

That is a great story - glad his ear is okay. :) Great snow mobile!

Ouch, poor lil guy..So thankful that it wasnt too bad...I would be paranoid about it though, wandering how deep it went. But I over analyze everything anyway..One of my quirks I guess ; )
Look at all that fun ya'll had..cool snowmobile! Made for a great Shoot Me pic ; )

Mama Zen said...

LOL! Snow days with Mom are better than school days, any day! Love the snow mobile. How very "green" of you! You've solved the carbon emissions conundrum!
