Pie Crust Baby

This little girl is the toughest kid I have. She hardly cries over physical pain. When she busted her chin - she sat calmly and let me super glue it shut (3-4 times). This morning she was running out of her room and tripped over my leg. She hit her head on the door jam and this happened instantly. This is the 2nd time in 2 weeks that she's had a goose-egg like this . . . bright purple and huge. Only this one I can't cover with her hair and we have family pictures this week. For being such a tuffy, her body sure doesn't react well to these bumps and scrapes!
Yes, she cried for a minute, but then when I tried to take her picture she said - "Mommy - you want a hurt face?" No kidding, she said those very words and then pulled this face. I laughed so hard and thought she nailed "hurt" right on the head with this expression!

Poor girly! However I do think that I am going to use that line. "You want a hurt face?" I love it!
