Disclaimer: No (additional) harm was done to my child for the making of this post! The stitches and fat lip she gave herself - the black eye was a makeup trick by momma for some added drama.

Oh hey, adoring public. I didn't see you there!

Things have been a bit of a blur since I left the ER last night in a Benedryl-induced haze. 

What's that?? You hadn't heard? I had a pretty serious run-in with our end table last night. I wasn't down for the count, though! Then I took on a round with boredom in the waiting room, a nurse giving me numbing meds, and the whole staff present when I got 9 stitches. I didn't exactly come out on top, but Mom says I'm a real champ anyway!

I'm not the biggest or strongest kid out there, but I'm determined to put up a better fight next time. Here's my plan to defeat my every nemesis, be it stationary furniture or a more sinister beast!

Step 1: Show off those battle scars!

They'll never know what size opponent you took on to get 'em. All they know is you're a real Bad Tooshie!

The more bumps and bruises, the more intimidating I am! Don't you agree?

Step 2: Work on that War Face!

I get all kinds of practice making this face for the unsuspecting passer-by. You never know when you'll have to be ready to do battle. While you're at it, perfect a growl too. 

I took a cue from Mr. Potato head and keep my "ANGRY EYES" around, just in case!

Step 3: Totally Lose It.

Never underestimate the fear a CRAZY PERSON can strike in the heart of your opponent!

I'm INSANE!!
