Back from Urgent Care:

Maddie fell at recess yesterday, turns out she broke her foot in 3 places. Found this out after I made her suffer with broken bones all night thinking she was just being dramatic....maybe I'll be the 2010 Mother of the Year. I think I've blown it this year.

Oh, and I jammed the tampon machine at the hospital....I should not be allowed out of my house.

Things will get better.

I have to just keep chanting this to myself to make sure I stay sane.

You are absolutely a wonderful mother in my opinion! I wish I had a mother as loving and caring as you.

Chin up!

I hope she is feeling better now.
Did she get a pretty-colored cast? Is she at the point where she is proud of it?
Each of our kids broke a bone when they were small, doing the least dangerous things. David broke a bone in his foot, from jumping off of a bean-bag chair - about 12 inches off the floor! He had to have a cast & everything. Katie broke her collarbone when she was running down the road (while we were taking a walk). She tripped, fell, and that was that; no cast required. It was hard to believe that those little mishaps could result in broken bones! Both were in the preschool days.

Hey, we have all done this. Lo played softball and volley ball for 3 months with a fractured wrist. We thought she was just being whiny too. 3 MONTHS Mags.
