Our accident prone daughter

Our daughter Brooke is a little accident prone. Until recently, not a dinner went by without Brooke falling off her chair. We were used to having her fall and then seeing her jump up and say, "I'm OK!"

Today, after church we went on a walk around our neighborhood. We stopped to talk to a neighbor. While we were talking Brooke ran down the street with her friend. We didn't see it happen, but somehow Brooke's face collided with a bush.

Here you can see the result:

Brooke's injury

Fortunately, we asked another neighbor, who is a nurse, to take a look at Brooke's injury. The cut under her eye wasn't deep enough to need stitches. We cleaned out the cut and then put some antibiotic ointment on it.

She held up pretty bravely until Grandma and Grandpa Bowden came to visit. Then she locked herself in the bathroom because she was embarrassed. We were able to talk her out and by the time we took this picture she was in a good mood.


"I didn't trip on anything, I just tripped." - Whenever she trips and falls, we usually ask her what she tripped over. Apparently this time, she just tripped!
