What happened to Ben???!!!

Warning: This post contains disturbing images of my second born, Ben. Be assured that he is okay; no medical attention was necessary. He is apparently a very poor preschool fighter.

So Ben got in a bar fight last night.

This is what happens when you have five boys running amuck about the house, wrestling and playing with only sporadic supervision. One of them is bound to end up looking like Rocky Balboa at the end of any of his movies.

I slept in late this morning. The latest I have in a long time. So late that I’m embarrassed to write the hour I arose from my comfy bed. When I went downstairs and saw Ben’s face, a little piece of me died inside.

No, not really. Mostly I was grateful I hadn’t scheduled our family picture taking session at Target this week.

It was a bit shocking and I'll be the first to admit that he looks a little hideous. His face is reminiscent of Sloth’s from The Goonies.

Speaking of which, there is a Goonies 2 possibly maybe in the works. I’m serious. Original cast. Cyndi Lauper. The whole nine yards. This is totally the comeback that Corey Feldman needs. (I heart Corey Feldman, btw.)

I’m sure it will be a great success, just like Dirty Dancing 2.

Perhaps Ben can play the role of Sloth's deformed yet adorable offspring...

Holy overdramatization, Batman!

That's nothing. Boys will be boys, and boys need bumps, bruises, black eyes, scars, cuts, abrasions, contusions, broken bones, burns, scrapes, etc, etc, etc, to become men. It looks like he is on his way. Rock on, Ben!

Overdramatization? Crap. I was going for "I'm a mom who's totally cool with boys being boys but that doesn't mean it doesn't look ugly."
