On Monday, I took Eve and Ann to the Orthopedic Doc office. Eve got her cast off and all is well. She is still sore and limping a bit, but she'll recover fine.
Ann is another story. She broke her arm in two places not just one. One in the radius bone near the wrist and one in her wrist. Joy. She is casted now.
When we explained what happened we conveniently left off the part where she jumped from a tree onto the trampoline. We just said she was jumping on the trampoline. I figured with two kids in casts I was going to get enough stink-eye from the doc without adding the whole extreme trampolining to the mix.
He didn't say anything about having two kids in casts in such a short time, but he did mention his extreme dislike for trampolines. But come on, have you ever met a doc that liked trampolines? Didn't think so.
On another note, I made granola bars yesterday. How homeschool of me! They're quite good. I'm proud of myself. They have almond butter in them instead of peanut butter. I bought the almond butter with the greatest of intentions of eating only healthy stuff, but honestly? It was gross. It went in the granola bars. Also I included crushed peanuts, shredded coconut, raisins, sunflower seed and all kinds of other healthy stuff. Yeah, me! Now my kids can go to our homeschooling co op on Thursday and pull out their homemade granola bars! Maybe it'll make up for all the bags of Doritos and Oreos they've had all year. And maybe they'll distract the other homeschooling moms from noticing all the casts?
