Hitting A Wall. (literally, not figuratively)

(Although figuratively it would also be true in several areas of my life.)

Unfortunately, my son also hit a wall. Quite literally:

As you can see in this crappy cell picture, J got quite the knot from running into the corner of the wall yesterday. He wasn't a fan of the ice, but somehow the 10 or so times I was able to apply it to his head, even at only five seconds each, reduced the swelling. Today he only has a nasty blue bruise.

Apparently the advice to just 'push through when you hit a wall' only applies metaphorically.

  1. Aww, poor guy! That looks like a terrible bump on his head. Reminds me of when my son did something similar. He was twirling, and kids like to do to feel dizzy afterwards. I told him to stop, but he didn't listen. So when he did stop, he pretty much ran straight to the wall and hit it so hard he bounced off the wall. Had a knot similar to this one. I could only laugh after I knew he was okay. Boys. That's all I can say. Boys. I hope he's better very soon.
