Me with Crutches: Yay.

Last Friday I thought I'd be a cool mom. You know, the kind who plays with her kids instead of sitting at the playground with a book. This turned out to be a bad idea. Lazy moms, you know what you're about.

We were playing Lava Monster1 and I had been on the lava for almost three sweconds, so I jumped up on a slide to restart my time. As I jumped back down to keep running, I landed pretty badly. The next thing I know I'm laying on the ground in incredible pain. Seriously -- really, really terrible pain. I was losing it until I started doing my hypnobirthing stuff, relaxed, and got my mind of it. It was seriously the worst pain I think I've ever felt. Here's a picture.

So now I can't walk. Luckily Justin's mom had some crutches at her house that she let me borrow. I couldn't put any weight on my foot and couldn't even move it without serious, serious pain for the first 24 hours or so. I'm now to the point that I can rest it on the floor for short periods of time. I'm just hoping to be albe to stand on it and walk around by Thursday, since I have an Enrichment meeting I want to go to and I'll need to be able to drive.

In other news, here's what Atticus did to Esme today:

It could be worse. And yes, he got in BIG trouble. I don't want a pen anywhere near her eyes, espcially not while being held by a 3-year-old.


1If you don't know what this is you had a terrible childhood.


  1. Ah, that little boy, expressing his creativity. Definitely not the way he should do it, though.

  2. Basically. Also, sorry it says there are pictures. I didn't put them up. Just imagine lots of swelling. It wasn't very pretty.

  3. Oh, I love your personality. "If you don't know what this is, you had a terrible childhood" I laughed out loud. Love you Mel
