Hard Headed. Thankfully.

Well, I named him after the right Dirt Dog: boy has so many bumps and bruises on his forehead that the scar tissue he is developing would make Dusty Rhodes green with envy.

Kids were playing in the garage today, and Trot was doing his "get into everything" act and climbed the garage steps. Before Angie could get to him, head first he went, cracking his head on the brick step.

You can see by the lovely purple colored goose egg in the center of his head that he took a direct hit. But while the step won the battle, Trot won the war: within 3 minutes he was up and at 'em again. I'm surprised Rakes has not taken a sharpie and played connect-the-dots with all the bruises on Trot's forehead yet: it's gotta be coming though.

Thanks to Aunt Stacy, who came tearing over on 2 wheels when Angie could not reach me: the fact the 2 of them were close to panic when I got home is beside the point: I appreciated the effort. Stacy said that the guardian angel's who look after my kids work overtime, and Sis, I think you may be right.

As for the Sox, tonight was a MUCH better night: Julian went 7 innings, gave up 2 runs, and waved, pointed, and hollered like an air traffic controller at JFK. JD Drew went 3 for 4 with a walk hitting out of the lead off spot, and Munchkin went 5 for 5 with 5 RBI's out of the 2 hole, including a 2 run bomb in the first to tie it up. That Francona: by gosh, he may know what he's doing after all.

10-2 Sox, and I hope all the doomsdayer's will all go sit and spin for awhile: Sox, still in first, now up by 8.5 since 67 year old Rogah got beat by the Mets tonight.

Order is now restored to the Universe.

I love Friday nights.

Tex said...

Ted
I don't know how I survived raising my son. He seemed to get into so much stuff like Trot. Glad he is ok....but he'll be the reason for your gray hair

Ted D said...

Christine, The boy can take a licking, that's for sure. I have noe idea how he didn't bleed: well, other than the fact he has fell around 100 times since birth. I've never seen 2 boys this tough: they beat anything I've seen.

Julian: The Stopper. Who woulda thunk it? He is too much: waving Manny in on the line drive was hilarious!

Tex: the gray hair came in around the time Ciera turned 4: you'll see it in person in around 3 months: Be sure and take pic's when you go to San Diego next weekend, OK?

Tex said...

going to email right now to write...wait to check

KAYLEE said...

I LOVE JULIAN OR THE STOPPER!

Ted D said...

Waiting, waiting, waiting...

Tex said...

ok done

Ted D said...

Tex, just went: said no new messages. Even refreshed: still the same.

I'll try again in a few minutes.

Ted D said...

Tex: to quote Rakes:

Never matter.

It came through.

Tex said...

dontcha love how kids rephrase our phrases?

scott h said...

Ok Kaylee I guess you and I are going to have to play secret agent and email stuff back and forth and you can tell me how swell I am and how will tell you how a secret thankyou is coming by snailmail!

Jr just wait till the school calls and says come get your son I think he broke his arm!! That kinda knots your stomach

KAYLEE said...

haha scott.ya really like me now i see.

KAYLEE said...

shoot sundays father day huh?

KAYLEE said...

tex did ya see my new homepage on SG? ted dont look!

Ted D said...

Bubba, I have a feeling that phone call is in my near future.

And leave Tex alone: some stuff you hooligan's don't need to know.

And before you say it: Angie know's about ALL of it.

KAYLEE said...

ted shouldnt you be in bed?

Ted D said...

Yes Kaylee, I should.

And I'm heading that way right now.

HorshamScouse said...

That poor kid!

If I'm counting right, we're exactly .500 over the last ten. Crisis? What crisis?

Pics from SD? Guaranteed! (Unless Tex can find a way to bribe me)

Tex said...

bribe?? Moi??? whatever would you be talkin bout?

Carol said...

Poor Trot-O (my new nickname for him). D is the same way with the bumps & scratches! She just got a good-size scratch on her face yesterday - Walking full-speed in the yard while looking the other way, and walked right into a bush. I was grateful that she scratched her cheek instead of her eye. These kids are gonna give us gray hair gosh darn it!

Regarding Tavarez, do you think that the guys say something to him about his antics when they see him in the dugout?- He's too much lol.
The Sox are on the way to sweep for you Ted :)

Ted D said...

Exactly Horsham: What crisis?

And remember Horsham: you have to give me a full report on Tex before Baltimore in September.

Carol, Tavarez is a laugh riot: anyone who is Manny's best friend has got to be a little touched in the head! And D may be giving you gray hair, but I've already GOT gry hair!

Peter N said...

Hi to you...it has been a while. And oh yes, last night Tavie was so great, and JD and Peds? Sweet. Finally a day to remember.....

scott h said...

I know its not much of a fashion statement BUT maybe it is time to issiue the boys bike helments to wear at all times . Except maybe when they are going potty, no better leave it on then too!!!

SCOtt:THERE is no way ted will do that:)

Stacy said...

For the record, I was NOT in a panic. :) I told Angie to call a friend of our's who is a nurse and tried to keep Rakes away from Trot until we knew he was ok. He did grab him by the back of the shirt collar on one occasion.

I'm with Scottie; bike helments might just prove to be a worth while investment.

Ted D said...

"I know its not much of a fashion statement BUT maybe it is time to issiue the boys bike helments to wear at all times . Except maybe when they are going potty, no better leave it on then too!!!"

Believe it or not: this has been considered.

scott h said...

Well boys and girls you will need to pull the home team thru without me. I am taking my wife out Fathers Day shopping. This way no goofy ties are bought. Everyone comes home happy!

KAYLEE said...

Scott:wouldnt she be taking you fathers day shopping?

Ted D said...

Don't ask Kaylee. It just leads to more questions.

Bub, NO Justin Timberlake CD's you hear?

KAYLEE said...

"Don't ask Kaylee. It just leads to more questions."

Will keep that in mind next time.

Tex said...

::thinking of things I can bribe Horsham with in SD to NOT tell Ted anything::

Ted D said...

Evening Tex: hope work went well.

And Horsham's my man: he's gonna fill me in on ALL the Tex stories!

Tex said...

day was fine...went to get my haircut and made it home in time for the 7th inning..FOX showed the game for me :)

KAYLEE said...

Fox showed me the game too which was surprising i never get any of the RED SOX FOX games....is it cause it was the giants they were playing and california isnt far from us?

Ted D said...

Good, glad it went well.

And thanks for rubbing it in that you got the game and I didn't.
