Date Night @ The Play Boutique

One of the benefits of being a Play Boutique member is that you get 1 free date night per month. You get to drop the kids off from 5:30pm to 8:30pm while you get 3 full hours of quality time with your spouse! They feed the kids pizza (if only our kids ate food!) and the rest of the time they pretty much get to run around and be wild. Last night Catrina and her husband also dropped off their kids and the 4 of us headed across the street for dinner at Manzana. It was such a fun evening of adult conversation (not to mention great food) but unfortunately every great evening has to come to an end. Shortly before 8pm we decided to head back to pick up the kids since it was way past both Sienna and Avery's bedtimes. As we walked by the windows of the Play Boutique, I saw Sienna having fun playing by herself. By the time we had walked around the corner and into the building, things had changed drastically. The first thing I saw was the teacher holding Sienna, (while holding her hand up to her head) and running towards the back of the room. From my confused state I swear I saw blood running down her face!!! By the time I caught up to them, I saw that the teacher had grabbed an ice pack from the freezer. I asked what happened and when she turned around, all I saw was this huge, swollen bruise on Sienna's cheek. OUCH! Apparently she had been walking by the see-saw when someone got off and it came slamming down onto her cheek. I am so thankful that she didn't get hit in the eye or the nose. As you can see from the numerous pictures below, she got hit pretty hard. Poor thing!

Here are pictures from this morning...12 hours after the accident. It is really hard to tell but if you enlarge the picture (click on it), you can see that her cheek is so swollen that it goes all the way up to her eye. You can't even see her eyelashes she is so swollen!

These pictures were all taken last night about 45 minutes after the accident happened. The pictures really don't show the extent of how bad it really looked.

If you enlarge this picture you can see the big lump underneath her right eye. Amazingly enough, with the help of Tylenol, she slept all night until around 4:30am, when she kept rolling onto her right cheek and crying out in pain.

Oh my goodness! Ouch! Poor thing. She really could have easily broken a cheek bone or nose or something. Wow! Great pics too~that way you can show her someday.
