Today signalled a first for me as a parent... the first time a child of mine has had to have a cast put on...
I mentioned last week that Evelyn fell off our swingset and I thought she had possibly sprained or hurt her arm. I waited to see if her arm swelled up or bruised and it didn't so I just assumed everything was going to be okay. But fast forward to this week and her arm seemed to be really bothering her. We took her for x-rays at the Children's Hospital and she has a mid ulna fracture and now a half-cast.
Unfortunately, it hasn't slowed her down a bit. I was hoping for a little bit of a break from DaredEvelyn, but she was trying to climb a tree already tonight!
And she wouldn't stand still for this picture either!
