I had quite the day today.

I guess I should explain.

Yesterday Jacob took a spill and made serious eye contact with a metal magazine rack.

The poor guy cried more than I think he’s ever cried in his life.

Because the injury was to his eye I took him to the pediatrican to make sure it was OK.  The pediatrician in turn sent him to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a more thorough examination to be on the safe side.

So, I was planning on posting a picture of Jacob’s swollen, bruised, dilated eye today.

However, when I downloaded the pictures, I found this:

I think it’s the coolest accidental photo I’ve ever taken.

Sorry, Jacob.  The picture of your eyes is going to have to wait.

    that is indeed, one very cool picture. I probably couldn’t do that on purpose if I tried!

    Hope that Jacob is feeling better… that had to HURT!

    Ouch! I’m so sorry to hear. I hope his eye is alright.

    Love the pic. This is precisely why I try not to delete pics off my camera before uploading them 🙂

    Youch. Sounds like the kind of injury that would happen at our house. I hope he heals quickly.

    LOVE your accident. Love. Sometimes, those are the very best ones in the batch. 🙂

    Scary accident … wise to get professional assistance. Sending hugs and good wishes for a speedy recovery. Methinks your ‘accidental photo’ is very kewl indeed 😉
    Hugs and blessings,

    That’s the best accidental photo I’ve ever seen!

    I wanted to comment that mine today was taken by a talented friend of mine, not myself. It spoke to me and fit perfectly with what I wanted to say (and I have her permission!), but if that’s against the rules, please let me know and I’ll take down the post!

    Dang Angie,

    I’m still flinching from the “eye to metal rack” story. I hope everything is okay. See, kids really do belong in plastic bubbles because mommies like me can barely take it.

    Yeah, really cool picture! If you stare at it too long, then it makes your eyes hurt or maybe, it’s just me.

    First things first, cool photo! Why don’t my accidental shots look as awesome as this one? Hmph. Second, I hope your son is feeling better and not in pain. What a scary injury!
    I finally got my stuff together and posted my Wordless/Wordfilled Wednesdsay entry early. (Yay me!) I hope you’ll stop by at some point and take a look. It’s udderly funny. 🙂 Have a great Wednesdsay Angie.

    Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud

    So sorry to hear about Jacobs eye! I hope he recovers quickly. Eye injuries are so painful, they make your whole body hurt. Difficult for a child.

  9. 128


    Just a simple scratch to my eye had me in tears, I can’t imagine what I would be reduced to if it had contact with a metal rack – OUCH!

    I had to laugh when I saw your accidental picture, though… You would be surprised at the “accidental” pictures that are taken when my kidss get a hold of my camera! LOL

  10. 142


    Oh no! I hope Jacob’s eye is ok. I know eye exams at the doctor aren’t all that fun in general, so I’m sure it was even worse with a sore eye!

  11. 147


    This is my first time playing along.

    My accidental pictures never turn out as neat as yours. Hope Jacob feels better quickly. Eyes are so scary to hurt.

      My BIL had to get a cornea transplant, so I’m hypersensitive about them. Lucikly, though, his injury was minor.

    I’m guessing the little dude is not looking like a pirate because there is no way you would put off posting that! Hope it heals quickly. And, do you recall what that accidental photo is of. I always get obsessed with trying to remember when that happens to me.

    Poor guy! I cringed just reading about his injury. So everything was o.k. after the two doctor visits? Hope he heals quickly.

    I love accidental photos. They are like little treasures hidden in your camera.

    Happy WW! 🙂

      The picture is actually of his brother who was standing off to the side. I think the shutter opened when the camera was swinging down on my wrist.

    cool shot, makes me dizzy though. Feel like I’m on a merry go round. Sorry about the little one, hate accidents to the face they always seem the worse.

  15. 221


    What a gorgeous shot. I love how spring-like it is with all those pinks. I took a similar artsy picture of a movie theater marquee at night – it’s filled with neons and contrasted to black. My son has it hanging in his room – it was what he was most worried about in the movie.

    This one is definitely worth framing!

      Tomorrow. 🙂
      The picture doesn’t look that bad. When it was bleeding it looked pretty gruesome though.

  16. 233


    I’m sorry, but I do NOT want to see the picture of his black eye! I had a couple black eyes when I was little, and it would make me sick to my stomach to see my reflection!

    Poor little guy…I can’t even imagine how much that must have hurt!

      I had oral surgery a few years ago that gave me a black eye. It was interesting to see peoples reactions b/c no one would look me in the eye suddenly!

  17. 235


    Sorry he got hurt. That is a great picture you are right! Love it. Tried to visit your blog yesterday but it wouldn’t let me come over said your server was down?? Lolli’s does that sometimes to me too at Better in Bulk. I think my computer secretly doesn’t like WordPress hehe!

  18. 239


    Ouchie!!! It looks like YOU were falling when you took that picture… I’m almost getting dizzy looking at it! Hope the little guy is feeling better! The good thing about boys is that their friends usually think wounds are cool. 😛

  19. 241


    Cool photo. I don’t delete photos off my camera until I look at them on the computer because every now and then there is an unexpected surprise!

    Sorry about the accident your son had! Hope he is doing better today!

  20. 248


    Well yes, I agree. That is a great accidental photo. But I really wanna see his eye!!!!

    Is it okay? I’m guessing it is or you would have said. Right?
