Tough Lil' Bugger


Lucas is looking pretty tough around the house these days. He's sporting a rad black eye and a fierce attitude to match. While I was at my second ABQ wedding this past Sunday, poor Little Lukie climbed up the arm of my parents' patio chair and it fell over. He smacked the back of his head on the floor... the cement floor, and then the chair arm smacked him in the face. I guess he cried for a long time, which isn't typical of Lucas when he gets hurt. Now he has this gnarly black eye to show for it.
Brenna recently had a black eye and noticed that people weren't as nice to her. One guy actually walked away from her when he saw it - in the middle of a conversation. Sadly, people have been treating Lucas differently as well. He's in a very friendly and social stage right now. He likes to say "hi" and "bye" to people and at the store the other day a lot of people ignored him. THEN at Wal-mart (a place I detest more than airport security) the greeter guy, who couldn't speak English, came up to me and muttered something about how I need to be taking care of my son and he's my responsibility, etc. I don't really know, to be exact, he could have been giving me the recipe for Chicken Feet Soup with Snow Fungus for all I know, but I don't like people assuming that I abuse my son. Anyhow, Lukie's eye is starting to look better. Poor Baby.

By the way, Lucas's new nickname in ABQ is Lukie Lau Lau. Robert came up with it (maybe from hukilau???) and I believe Stoney thinks it is his real name.

WOW! That sounds so aweful--from the fall to the way people treat you and him differently. I just don't get it--we're moms, we know what it's like, why judge? Anyway, sorry!

On another note, our computer broke down and I lost your mailing and email address. Will you please email me both at despain.m@comcast.net? Thank a bunch!

You should tell people like the greeter that just for those kinds of statements his beating will be that much worse for the day. Of course, you'd probably get investigated.
