My little brother stabbed me in the lower back with a pocketknife when I was 8 or 9. (In fairness, he wanted a turn in the hammock, and thought he was stabbing me in the ass.)

He also whacked my sister across the knee with a handsaw.

He's more or less housebroken now. 😁

I just remembered, he hit me in the head with a ball peen hammer too.  (That explains SO much.)

... My half brother and I never really got into it, at least not that I remember.

That, and I was pretty good about injuring myself as a kid, either by accident or misbehaving. One thing I remember fondly was my uncle beaning me in the head with a wind chime from about fifteen feet because I was running around in the living room.  There's other things; I've never been exactly what you'd call graceful. 😆

Someone, when I was in high school, once observed that I could trip over a painted line on the gym floor. I had to agree . . . .

Oddly, even today, I'm more surefooted on hill trails and at hopping from rock to rock than on flat urban surfaces. It's a mystery. 🙂

My father made a coffee table and specifically rounded off all the edges so we girls wouldn't get hurt on it. I whacked my head on it and needed stitches, anyway.

I got nibbled by my baby sisters. But they were teething so it doesn't really count.

I managed to sneak out of my high chair and did a swan dive into the kitchen table. I only about two so I only know second hand. But I still have a vertical groove in my skull from it. And there was a visible scar until I was in my 30s when it faded.
