My four year-old was playing around on Thursday and "slammed" into my daughter's dresser. I heard crying like I hadn't heard in quite awhile. The children brought him upstairs and I saw a big old knot next to his left eye. I asked what happened, and they said, "He slammed into a dresser." I immediately put a package of frozen peas on the knot.
The knot next to his eye on Thursday, turned into a black eye by Friday morning. I am starting to wonder how long it can last. Here we are on Monday and he still has a black eye. I do believe that this is his first black eye. I am also hoping it is his last. The poor fellow!
I am thankful that he hit the dresser where he did... a little further to the right and he would have gotten his eye, a little further to the left he would have gotten his temple. So, if this had to happen, it happened in the right place.
