So, What Happened To Your Brother's Head?

Yesterday when I was done sweeping the floor Morgan wanted to "finish". I let her sweep and forgot she had the broom. Until Carter woke up and they were playing in the dining room. I heard a scream and the unmistakable sound of the broom handle hitting the floor. I went in to investigate and saw a bluish lump on Carter's head. When I asked what happened all I got for an answer was "I'm sorry Momma, I'm really sorry". Carter quit crying and everything was fine.
The lump went away and so did the bruise.
Tonight I was on the phone with my Mom and Morgan was talking about Carter being asleep. She said something about him hitting his head on the bricks (that surround our fireplace). I said "No, he didn't hit his head on the bricks, but something happened with a broom yesterday. Didn't it?" here is her version of what happened. In her words.
"I was throwing the broom up to the ceiling and then the sun came down and I touched it and threw it back up to the ceiling and then the sun went upstairs and went outside to the sky"
Me "So, what happened to Carter's head?"
"Huh? I don't know. I touched the sun and then it had to go in the sky"
Me "So, what happened to Carter's head?"
"Huh? I don't know. The sun got tired and had to go to sleep so the moon came out."
Me "So, what happened to Carter's head?"
"Huh? I don't know."
I guess I'll never know.
Another thing I learned this week is that if you tell a 3 year old you are going to Sam's Club she expects to see Sam and what his club looks like. Not to go grocery shopping.
And one more funny Morgan story.
After Morgan's party my parents took Matthew, Krystal & David home. On the way there Krystal made a comment about hoping Chris (their roommate) didn't eat Lola (since he can't cook for himself, she does it). My Mom told me this story at Sam's Club (where we never saw Sam or his club) and for two days I heard "Did that guy eat Ola?".

Oh man. This always troubles me about kids. Then hurting each other. So many little accidents that can happen.

Sam's Club does sound much more exciting than it is.
