St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

February 15, 2010

We (meaning Nick and I) had a lovely Valentine’s Day Weekend.

Jarah did not.

Let’s start with the positive. I was greeted by tulips coming home from work on Friday. Jarah was holding them in this arms trying to show me how he could smell them, even though he basically just snorted all over them. I loved the snorting and the petals!

Saturday morning we feasted on bakery treats, went to the beach and that night we had some of Nick’s co-workers babysit (Thank You, Thank You Jessie and Lukas) while we went to the movies! And ate popcorn! Held hands! Shared a root beer! Awwww…

Then came Sunday (cue soundtrack from Jaws).

Nick went for  a bike ride up Waimea Canyon while I decided to take Jarah for a beach walk in Poipu followed by fun times at the playground.

We arrived at the playground and found all to look deceptively normal. Kiddies on the slide, sucking on juice boxes, running up the stairs. Jarah scrambled off smiling at all his “friends.” A little boy about his age in a baggy onesie sauntered up and held out his arms for a hug.

“How cute.” I thought.

Jarah jumped in for the hug and that’s when I realized this wasn’t a kid. It was a…

it might even have been a…

Essentially I had a little freaking monster latched onto the side of my sweet baby’s round kissable cheek with all the force his tiny fangs could muster. Jarah was silently screaming, horrified. I pried his little chompers off and thankfully noted no skin was broken but a massive bite mark ringed his face. I think worse than the physical pain, I felt horrible at the loss of innocence on Jarah’s face. Why? Why would a little friend attack like a mad dog.

Oh man Jarah…wait till you see 7th grade.

Today he bears a huge bruise that looks like some great auntie kissed him with purple lipstick. One day older, and slightly battle weary.
