When I picked Boy and Girl Child up from Tae Kwon Do they were very animated and excited and could not wait to tell me what happened today.
Apparently this Boy who is very tall hit this other boy in the face during dodge ball. Tall boy threw the ball really hard. Boy Child's best friend, Friend Child, TOLD Tall boy not to throw so hard, but he did it anyway.
Tall boy's throw broke Ball-in-face boy's glasses.
A piece of the glass (okay, it's probably plastic. Are any children's glasses actually made with actual glass?) went into Ball-in-face boy's EYE.
Much shrieking commenced.
I was appropriately upset given that I do not know any of the children in this particular scenario with the exception of Friend Child and he wasn't really involved. Since Boy Child wears glasses I said, "Boy Child, next time you play dodge ball, be sure you take your glasses off. I don't want you to get hurt."
And he said, "Mom. I took my glasses off? And then I couldn't see the ball? And Mr. Edwards threw the ball? And it hit me in the cubes."
MY TEN-YEAR OLD SON JUST REFERRED TO HIS NUTSACK.
OH. MY. GOD.
