Logan's first big boo boo...

Logan was riding his Jeep Power Wheels down the street this evening and a car was coming so he pulled over into the grass like a good boy to wait for the car to pass. Well, it was our neighbors across the street and the old man honked his horn not knowing that Logan is scared to death of horns (thanks to another neighbor!) So when he honked Logan started going up further into my next door neighbors grass and accidentally ran over her reflector pole. When the reflector pole came back up he popped the crap out of his forehead. But at the time I had no idea that had happened I thought he was coming toward me because he was scared. So when he gets to me all I see is blood gushing down his face! AND a half a golf ball size knot on his head! I was freaking out! I told the kids to go get an adult, any adult because I seriously thought I was gonna pass out! So the neighbor 2 houses down came over (the one who made Logan scared of horns to begin with!) and took care of Logan. He told me to just stay back b/c I was freaking Logan out more! Once he got the blood cleaned up and stopped it didn't look as bad. Just big! For a second there with all that blood I thought for sure we were going to the emergency room for stitches. Thank goodness it wasn't that bad.

Anyway, he's fine. Just scared the crap outta me. He's never really hurt himself before!

Here is a pic, kinds hard to see how big the knot is but you get the idea...

Oh, and the story behind the horn...the neighbor 2 houses down thinks it's funny to come home from work drunk every afternoon. So when he would see Logan riding in his Jeep he would honk his horn thinking it was funny, but it scared Logan to death! The last time he did it, just a day before the accident, he drove right up next to Logan and kept honking and Logan came running inside screaming. The neighbor wanted to apologize but Logan wouldn't come back out so he came in and told him he was sorry and gave him a hug. He said he wouldn't do it again, but the damage is already done! Now he's scared of any horn!
