That's what I've got you know. Absolutely crazy children.
We have had a lot of rain lately so our shady backyard is muddy and the children were getting a little tired of being inside. Yesterday they were racing around the house rough housing with each other.
Super P. is always the one to get hurt. I don't know why. All the kids were being naughty, but only P. got hurt. He apparently fell down the steps banging his elbow on the wall causing his bone just above his elbow to be fractured.
The doctor said he had never seen anything quite like it. Trust P. to be creative when it comes to fracturing his arm. Because the fracture was headed toward the elbow, the doctor decided that making sure it couldn't get worse was the best course of action so P. also has the distinct honor of being the first of our children to get a cast.
All the children had to come with me to the doctor's office where we spend a lot of time waiting:
waiting to see the doctor, being sent to get x-rays and waiting for those, back to the doctor and waiting for him to analyze the x-rays, and then finally waiting for the cast.
Pumpkin does NOT enjoy waiting. It didn't help that she was expected to wait during her nap time.
Finally about 2 hours later, we were finished and P. was the proud owner a brand new glow-in-the-dark cast. He will get to keep it for about 4 weeks.
Fortunately we didn't miss Happy Hour at Sonic and it was right on our way home.
Hopefully today will have a little less excitement. I'm not sure how much more this Mama can take.
