Well, the excitement of Aubrey's broken arm was starting to wear off, however, we noticed when we would change the wrapping (which we were supposed to do daily) that her arm looked bent. So, today we took her in to our fabulous pediatrician (we had taken her to the instacare when she originally broke it). He looked at the x-rays and could not understand why they didn't put a cast on it in the first place. He said it was a more significant break than the instacare doctor said (maybe that guy sees really nasty stuff so this seemed like no big deal). So, now Aubrey is sporting a hot pink cast and she could not be more thrilled. Now her friends can sign it and she can't wait to show it off at school tomorrow. I love it too because Aubrey tends to get a little wild sometimes and now I don't have to stress as much when she is wrestling or running or whatever (because she was only in a brace...which her brothers quickly discovered they could bump when they were mad at her and it would hurt). Now I'm not worried that she will break her arm or make it worse.This weeks agenda includes: a bonus trip to the doctor, shoe shopping for cleats (Bryce)and gym shoes (Aubrey), helping Josh finish his school presentation, pre-school, attending school field trip to the zoo, Aubrey's community ed drama class play, beehive class presidency meeting, mutual, cub scouts, Bryce's soccer practice, ward temple group, Bryce's soccer game, young women presidency meeting, and girls camp kick off meeting. Just another typical week around here. I am sure there are plenty of you out there with older kids just laughing and thinking, "Just you wait, it will only get worse!" It's a good thing you get to grow into life a little at a time.
Speaking of growing, me and baby Jane Doe are definitely doing a lot of that. I don't love ballooning by the minute but I am grateful to still have enough energy to keep up with my five little monsters and still mow the lawn and do laundry etc etc. The house doesn't suddenly take care of itself just because I am walking for two. Oh the fun of motherhood!!
