Its all fun and games til somebody gets a stick in the eye

Last night was a pretty typical Monday night at our house. Three of the kids had soccer games or practice all at the same time. S and LJ came over to watch the second half of A-girls game after LJ's game had finished. He watched for a bit and then went off playing with the many other siblings that were there watching.

The kids and I were having a late dinner while S worked (he has been working many long hours the past two weeks on a project and tends to work his regular job and then come home and spend an hour or so at soccer and then work on this project til the week hours of the morning). All of a sudden A-girl announced, "Oh Gross!!! Look at (LJ's) eye!!!"

They all proceeded to comment on how red, gross and disgusting it looked. It did look red but you would have thought he had suffered a severe eye injury with parts hanging out the way they were carrying on. I just assumed it was from the dust on the infield of the ball diamond that we were standing in to watch the girls play. The noise level increased and poor LJ was looking like he had had enough.

I stated "Come on guys. Its not like he got a stick in the eye. Its likely just dust. Let's settle down and finish up."

Very slowly LJ's eyes looked up and quietly he said "I did get hit in the eye with a stick." WHAT?!?!

He explained that he was playing with a little girl that is in the same soccer league as he is and she accidentally hit him with the stick. He was totally unemotional and didn't seem the least upset by it. When I asked why he didn't tell me sooner, he said he didn't want to get her into trouble (just a little bit earlier a little boy had hit another boy which created some drama and in true LJ fashion, he wasn't having any part of it).

I asked him if it hurt much and he told me, "No. Only when I blink!" To me that would be in the much category, however not for LJ.

It is still red today but isn't bothering him at all. Who would have thought that when I made that comment, it would have actually been the truth. Its not like we were in the woods and sticks were plentiful!
