little boys

Retro was quite lonely for a friend today. After coming back from the neighbors disappointed, he decided to stay outside and try and build a little sledding hill. He looked like he was struggling a little so I decided to brave the cold and go help the kid. We did a decent job building this little slope out of the old crusty icey snow. I was feeling pretty good about myself as a mother and then.....

this.

His exact words were, "Mom, I got blood." He sat there in the snow for a bit before he decided he was bleeding, then came and found me, and then cried. He sliced his chin a little and has a fat lip, but he's tough.

Oh Amy, that picture is so sad, and kind of intense cause it looks like it is actually happening every time I look at it. Ya know, Rhett will always think you are the coolest Mom cause you helped him make the sweet sleddng hill - he'll forget about his war wounds.
