After reading on my friend Summer's blog about a Family Movie Night, I thought that would be the perfect way to spend our Saturday night. We ordered pizza, gave Reid a bath, all got into our comfy clothes/pajamas, turned off all the lights, got our movie snack of slice and bake cookies and milk, and settled in to watch the Bee Movie. At first, Reid was really into it and just cuddled with me on the couch, but after awhile he decided that it was more fun to run around the family room. We decided to go ahead and put him to bed, and I was putting up the remote that he had taken when he ran through the family room, tripped on Lily's bed, and face planted into an iron, pointy magazine holder (said holder is now put up and out of way). Of course he started crying and when I picked him up, noticed that he had cut just beneath his eye and his nose was bleeding (but not profusely). We gave him some loving, and after a little bit he stopped crying and hasn't acted like it has bothered him since. Kids are so tough! So, we're hoping the next Family Movie Night will not be so dramatic!

(The redness under the cut is part of the aftermath, I think he also scraped his cheek when he fell. That's not part of the rash I was referring to earlier.)
