My Kid Is A Monkey. Or A Klutz.

What a week, and it is only Tuesday...

Sunday the kids went on a walk with our neighbor and her kids and I met up with them a bit later...

On the way back towards home Cal's bike tire slipped on a rock and he fell off his bike and his bike fell on top of him.

He tells the story just like that, I swear.

He was a half block ahead of us mommies and when we caught up with him and the other two bike riders, he was on the ground. Man down. Man down. Mayday. Mayday. Bloody nose and all.

He took it easy for the rest of the day on Sunday and on Monday he was still limping around, so while we were waiting for the dentist I called the doctor and made an appointment.

We went to the doctor today for our 2 o' clock appointment and the doc sent us to x-ray for some pictures. X-ray sent us back to the doc to talk about the results, doc sent us to orthopedics/ podiatry for a boot and from there we went to the Lab to get some overdue lab tests done for Cal's anemia (which he had when he was getting bloody noses everyday). We spent so long in the hospital today, but it was fun, Cal was pushed around in a wheelchair to and from x-rays and the doc and podiatrist. What could be more fun for a five year old?

Turns out there could possibly be a fracture in his foot, so they booted him up and we have an appointment on Thursday morning to find out for sure.

Friggin crazy little monkey!!!!

Oh no! That's got to be rough on a kid, a fracture of the foot. I'm sure it doesn't slow him down any, though!
