I am trying to get my "domestic engineering projects" complete this am. We have a busy afternoon ahead of us. 2 Drs. Appointments. Really. Pink Ninja sees the orthopedic surgeon today, as well as her regular pediatrician for her 18 month check up. I have tried to convince her a nap would be in her best interests, but she doesn't believe me. Of course these Drs. Appointments are right in the middle of nap time. So I have been tending to the house, and the children like mad. Trying to figure out what to cook for dinner, getting laundry done. I hate putting the laundry away, it is my LEAST favorite chore. I have no idea why, I just hate it. I would rather scrub the tub out.
One of our neighbors is vacationing, and her dog got loose, so I had to run over to her house, and see if the other dogs are ok. I also had to call husband and ask him to fix the fence when he gets home. I guess the dog found a "weak" spot.
Getting Miss Pink Ninja dressed these days is no easy feat. She loves to be naked, and HATES clothes. Protests heavily. She loves jewelry, hats, shoes, bracelets, necklaces, just doesn't want to wear other clothing. Dash is the opposite, HAS to be clothed.....And very rarely will keep a hat on.
Dash thinks Pink Ninja's cast is unusual. He also said "she needs one on the other arm, and her face." Isn't that just like a brother.
I am nervous about this Drs. Visit, and am hoping they can reduce these breaks without a surgical procedure. I am dreading the idea of her in an uncomfortable cast. No water, no sand. That is all we do around here, we go from the sprinkler, to the pool, to the sand.
I am also worried this reduction of breaks is going to be painful for her. Ugh. My least favorite sound is that of my babies crying in pain.
The other thought that keeps crossing through my brain..If we already have 2 broken bones at 18 months, what will happen to her by age 6. This has never been a worry with Dash. He is NOT reckless, he does not practice death defying feats, he is even scared to ride on his Father's shoulders. He is overly cautious......This is a new ballgame for me.
