Foot update

Here is an update of Caitlyn's foot. Her foot was too swollen to cast the day after her accident, so she has to stay in a splint until Monday.

At first she was very vocal about not wanting to use crutches. She really wanted a wheelchair. I had to squash that idea several times, but now that she has given the crutches a chance she is beginning to like them. She is also liking the idea of her friends being able to sign her cast. When I told her that she would have it on the first day of school she said "Cool, I can have my new friends in my class sign it!" She wasnt too excited when I told her that she wouldnt be able to go to gymnastics for a few weeks. She was really worried about the other girls learning things and that she would be behind. I reassured her that she would learn everything that they learned and that seemed to ease her mind about that.

Just to summarize who this experience has been going so far, Caitlyn said on Wednesday "I'm tired of having my foot broken. I just want this off." Yikes, this is going to be long!

The first of many

We lasted 5 1/2 years at our house without breaking any bones on our children. Monday night was the end of that streak. While showing her friends the proper way to dismount the top bunk, Caitlyn landed wrong and broke her littlest piggy. She will be getting some type of cast on Tuesday, but we hope that it wont ruin our San Diego trip next week.

A bit to risky

So there is the new popular blog post that has been going around about posting memories. I am certain that if you are reading this lame blog that you have been to more popular blogs of people that have friends to comment with memories of them.

I find this to be quite risky. What if nobody comments? What if it is only your mom that comments about when you were born? What if someone comments about a memory they had with someone else but confused it with you? I just don't think that I could handle it.

So, I am NOT asking for anyone to post any memories about me. I am NOT asking you to re-post anything on your blog soliciting people for random memories from the past and therefore perpetuating the risk of utter social discouragement. I prefer to remain ignorant of my inability to attract and retain long term friends.


P.S. Emily does not agree with me. She wants memories posted in the comments. So get crackin'.

Happy 8th

If you would have asked me where I would be before we met 9 1/2 years ago, I would have never dreamed it would be here. Before you, here was not even a dream. Because of you, I am more than I could have been but not yet all that I will be.

I love you sweetheart.
