Wipe Out!

POSTED BY ALEX

So Dejah and I decided to go sledding today. We went to a park with a small hill, but it didn't serve mine and Dejah's thrill. We ended up sledding in by our home down a hill that had a fence at the bottom. This hill was serving our interests a lot better than the one before. We were having a real good time when a few little girls came and started to slide down the hill on by themselves without a big kid like me. Of course, Dejah asked to go by herself. Well, I am a damn fool. I let her go but didn't think about speed and the likelihood that she would travel further than we did together. Sure enough, as soon as she took off I knew that I was in trouble. I chased after her, but it was too late. She ran into the fence at the bottom of the small hill. It made me really nervous as I ran up to see what had happened. Luckily, the brunt of the force was applied to her snow cap, though she did end up with some cuts on her lip and face. Needless to say, her teeth and everything else was OK! I thought that I would for sure be taking her to the hospital for a split skull. She did hit the steel post ya know. Anyway, I am glad that she is OK and that tommorrow she still wants to go with her dumb ass dad to hopefully redeem himself. Sorry if the swear words have offended anyone! I am not very pleased with myself right now. This could have been a lot worse. Thanks for the daily prayers mom!

  1. We have all been there. I think you realized your error faster than most. It is harder when it involves our little ones but don't be too hard on yourself. If she even blamed you at all she forgave you before the tears dried. Kids are wonderful like that. Have fun tomorrow and know your mom will still be offering up prayers for you all.

  4. Way to go dad. Now we have proof you beat your child. ;) That is nothing you should see some of the things my girls have come home with. I am sure this picture is of the lip at its worst too. She is ready for more sledding either way it sounds like.

  8. Sometimes you just have to swear -- you are so cute! I'm glad Dejah was okay and it wasn't as bad as it might have been. That fat lip is impressive.
