You can hold your applause, though I know I did good work. You see it, right? I mean, how could you not? It's the big ole goose egg sitting on her forehead. I did it to her. It was an accident, I promise! She was standing right behind me (without announcing her presence) when I slung my bag (containing my laptop) up on my shoulder. It clocked her straight in the head. The goose egg popped up immediately (or at least I think it did, it took several minutes to calm her down enough to let me look).
She's really upset with me. I mean like hot, if looks could kill, tell your teachers your mama knocked you out kind of upset. But I earned it, so I'm taking it like a woman.
Of course, the day's not all bad. With the horrible always comes some good. I've been given the "Scoop of the Week" award from Drama Mama! You'll have to go check out my mini-post there today and the guest post I'll be doing on Monday.
For the next couple of days I'll be working on convincing my daughter that I really didn't mean to hurt her, handling the CPS calls/visits that'll likely roll in, and trying to help the Mountain Man live through it all. You know he took it worse than all of us, right?
