You should see the other guy!



Christopher is in the wars at the moment. His mother's heart can't take much more. This morning as we walked to his classroom, his usual bout of enthusiastic scampering ended in disaster. He lost his balance and landed face first on the concrete step. Of course, the broken arm didn't help, and he had no way to break his fall. He came up with blood pouring from his nose, and an impressive collection of grazes on every limb excepting the one that's plastered from shoulder to finger tips. (That cast was optional, and I must say, one of the better decisions of my parenting career!) Ice, painkillers and back home to bed was the prescription for the day. As you can see, his eyes are blackening. I have nearly chewed through my tongue in my efforts not to say 'I told you so!'.

Poor kiddo, maybe now he'll slow down!

OMG! How awful for you- & your son of course!
Sometimes being a Mum is the most painful experience in the world. And I am not referring to just the giving birth, either.

WV is eeksc ! how appropriate.

Oh My! Praying he is better soon. ((hugs)) to you my friend!

You know what strikes me? Is how much older he looks than he did six months ago. Your pictures of the kiddies aren't frequent but they are enough for us to see that they are sprouting like weeds.

oh no!!!!!!!! if he is anything like Zachary, it won't slow him down a bit!

You are all so sweet :) He's much better tonight, just a bit tender. Back to school for two more days, then we're on winter break!

Lovely to see photos of my poor darling. Give him a hug please. I took Caelan to school this morning, probably at school the same time as you were. Love Mum

Oh wow - I haven't visited your site for a while - I feel bad for all the awful dramas you have (or Christopher has) been going through. I hope Christopher's arm is healing quickly - and likewise your poor heart!
