Well...it was bound to happen sooner or later. Boys will be boys. Anyone know how long it takes a black eye to heal. It's not horrible...but Xander was swinging his foam bat around and decided it would be fun to play karate with mom. (only mommy never uses bats, and we're not suposed to karate chop eachother....espically with a bat) And thats how I got my first black eye. What can I say......I'm a boy mom.
