So there we were after a long day of travel, sitting in our hotel room in Albuquerque, NM. My ankle was swollen and throbbing, so I asked Simon to run to the ice machine and bring me some ice to put on it.
He gets a big smile and says, "Oh I have something even better than that!" and ran out the door.
TC and I looked at each other a little perplexed but went back to resting our eyes. Simon was gone for what seemed like a really long time.
Finally he returned.
He comes to the side of the bed and has me close my eyes and put my hand out.
I felt him dump something into my hand.
I opened my eyes, he had given me a handful of dirt.
"Rub some dirt on it Mom!"
The boy watches way too much football.
