Thank You

I have loved reading all of your comments and finding out how real each of us are in this crazy world.

Yesterday I took Carly into the fracture clinic where they took another x-ray, removed her splint and replaced it with a bulky bright pink cast.  As you can tell by the picture, she is very happy to have it on.

I would write more about the happenings and mischief going on around here...but I am at the present moment babysitting. The three oldest have shut themselves in Connor's bedroom and it's quiet (never a good sign). Emily is peacefully asleep. Carly is supposed to be taking a nap in her room, but I hear her whailing. I need to go to the store tonight and pick up some Benadryl for her...not to knock her out completely but to help with the discomfort and itching the cast will cause. Per the Dr.'s instructions.

Super Me to the rescue...of what? I don't really know.

Oh, man! Look at that sad little girl. I'm glad that everything as far as her health is concerned is relatively good! She'll just need a dose of excitement when I come over tomorrow. :)

When my little boy had his twice broken foot (yes, I am also Mom of the year) we alternated with Benadryl and Motrin. The Motrin really seems to knock my kids out (Alex actually has the opposite reaction to Benadryl where it hypes him up) and gives us all a few minutes of peace. Good luck. Broken limbs are awful! And the fracture clinic, having been there twice myself, isn't the most fun experience in the world, either.

Oh, Mel I am so sorry about your bad week. I wish I was there to give you some relief. You are so not alone. All awesome moms have days like that.
Next week will be better!!!!
