Sebastian, my nine-year-old, has really gotten into these games. Coming home from school yesterday, he was exuberant. He had scored a touchdown during recess and had the mud on his knees to prove it. He wanted to talk about nothing else. I almost thought he was going to demand that we drive him back to school so he could show us the very ground on which that touchdown was scored.
So today when Alison was leaving school, someone pulled her aside. During today’s football game, someone head-butted Sebastian. His nose swelled up something bad. Alison is now racing him to the ER. The nurse doesn’t think it’s broken, but everyone is so very cautious nowadays.
