Because what we need is more chaos
Emily broke her arm this evening. I was getting ready to take the babies on a walk and Scott was helping me latch them in the jogging stroller. Emily was in the backyard playing with her ball. Apparently she tried to stand on it, and when she fell she caught herself with her arm and broke it.
You wouldn't know anything was wrong by looking at Emily's precious face. She cried a bit when it first happened, but that was it. No tears on the car ride to the emergency room. No tears when the nurse examined it, or when the x-ray tech took the pictures. She even explained that she couldn't have a Sponge Bob sticker because Sponge Bob is rude. (Nice)
So tomorrow Scott will have to take the day off to bring Emily to the orthopedist office. Obviously I proved myself unworthy of making this trip because just the sight of her arm made me puke and cry. Who knows what will happen if I have to watch the doctor set it.
Oh well. One more way that our life will be a little chaotic. Hopefully that is all God has in store for us, at least for the summer. And by the way... Emily can't wait to pick out the color for her cast. She wants fuschia... just like Fancy Nancy! :)
