This is what a soccer cleat to the eye looks like.
He looks like he's twenty five in this picture, not seven. This injury is the result of an accidental collision at practice.
It's dawning on me that this is likely the first of many sports injuries for my children. Yikes. I guess I better work up the stomach for it. I wasn't there; his dad took him. I'm glad I wasn't as I'm sure I would have shrieked and carried on and generally embarassed him.
Another half inch to the left and OY! I don't like to think about it.
