Dear William (25 Things About You)

Will's daycare is making a collage or something, and they sent us home with a card that has his picture on it and we're supposed to write down 25 things about him on that card.  Rob said, "This is really more of your kind of thing," (so true) and handed the card off to me.

It is probably good that I had to sit down and write 25 Things About William because we had a pretty rough day yesterday, and I needed to take a minute and remember how wonderful he is.  Will loves to throw things, which is great if they are lightweight or are meant to be thrown... not so great if they are hard and hit you in the face.  He was sitting next to me on the couch yesterday reading and talking on his (toy) cell phone, [Will loves to sit on the couch] when all of a sudden he hauled off and threw his cell phone at me.  It hit me right on the brow ridge (superciliary arch, for the anthropologists) and somehow then ricocheted to the bridge of my nose.  You know how in cartoons when a character gets hit in the head with something, they show stars or little tweeting birds circling the head? I think that actually happened.  Jebus, it hurt.  I screamed in pain and then couldn't talk; all the while, William sat there on the couch, laughing.  It continued to hurt really bad for the rest of the day, and now it still hurts more than 24 hours later.  My nose is actually worse than my brow ridge, and I am kind of worried it is broken.  The bridge of my nose is swollen and red (what a sight that is), and hurts to touch.  Come to think of it, it kind of hurts to breathe too.  I tried to blow my  nose earlier in the day, and was that ever a mistake.  I hope that I do not have to sneeze any time soon.  So, I wonder what happens to you if you have a broken nose?  And in particular, if you do not seek any medical treatment for said broken nose.  It's not like they would put a cast on it... would they?  I hope I don't end up with a crooked nose as a result of this incident.

Anyway, I figured as long as I am coming up with 25 Things About William, I might as well put it on the blog.  So here goes.
