Isn't it fun when you fall and slam your knees into your face! Yea, I did that today. Off to the doctor to get this huge gash in my mouth checked out.

Pray for no stitches!
 
Did ChalkBucket help you?... help us too.

If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!

I kicked myself in the face once on a timer and had a bruise around the side of my nose and my eye the week school started that year (I think it was my freshman year in HS). The good news is I learned to straddle when I rolled over on timers :)

I have never actually kneed myself in the mouth before but I have seen others do it. Usually when my girls are learning front tucks for double fronts I have them cowboys their flips. In other words, I have them flip with their knees apart so if they do land short, their head goes between their legs.

Hope you will be better soon.Happened to my daughter too.She had a fat lip and was afraid of back tumbling for awhile.

We do our front tumbling with our knees apart too but this was on backtumbling so i'm pretty sure mine was just a freak accident.
