No-Shave November

This small incident will go down as one of the funniest, freakish, near panic attackish experiences to-date currently with one of our children.  I was sitting outside pushing Lourdes in the baby swing in Beloit.  Directly beneath me is an old cement stump that once held a fence post.  Kapaun came running towards me, tripped perfectly and fell face first into the cement stump.  I waited for it.  I flinched, twisted, cringed in all sorts of directions because I knew he had just knocked out all of his baby and permanent teeth.  He ran fast and fell hard.  I waited.  No sound.  Did he knock himself out?  Did he hurt himself so bad that the delay cry was coming in 3 seconds.  Nope.
He popped up looking like this.  I don't know what happened because it defies logic and physics.  Imagine my surprise when down went a clean-faced boy and up popped no-shave November.  I laughed and laughed and laughed.  How in the world?  The dirt was so perfectly formed it almost looked like I painted it on.  Thank you Jesus.


  1. That is too funny! Such a cutie-pie, even if he does resemble a very short Hitler. ;) My kids and I got a kick out of this post this morning.
    I enjoy your blog so much. The love you have for your husband and children is evident. I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking up Classical Conversations stuff. I really like the idea of putting frames on the wall and writing the memory work there. :)

  2. Oh, he was lucky- such a cute boy...
    But honestly, you should better look for a new and more appropriate post title. I was shocked to read it especially on your blog! God bless from Germany, Nicole.

  3. What a cutie pie and such funny story!
