Ok, so I played the mom card today. I don't do it that often. I mean, I let the kids draw on their walls, I said no the the permanent markers, though. I let SP have cool colors in his hair. I even dyed it for him! It'll grow out. The kids have two jobs. Do their best at school, and be good people. (polite, no drugs, etc) But, today, I did it. I put my foot down. Sorry, kid. Mommy's still the boss.
SP went back to the surgeon today for his cast removal and check up. The surgeon decided, after studying the new x-rays, that SP could have a walking cast. Yay! No more crutches. Well, as the Dr. is talking to us, SP says "I get one of the removable ones, right?" Dr. W. starts to say yes, but then he looked at me, shaking my head, "No". He changed what he was saying real quick! hehe
SP is not very happy with me. Which turns him into a pouty two year old. When the nurse asked him what color cast he wanted, he said it didn't matter. She said "How about orange?" Thinking he'd say no, but he said whatever, doesn't matter. Jeeshe! So, I answered for him and he has a black cast with orange stripes. Pretty cool.
We had a fun time on the way there, joking and talking about what he wants to do in the next few years. He'll be a senior next year! Yikes! He gets over being mad at me quickly, though. I wanted to say sure, give him what he wants, but I want him safe, and sound. Wrapping his foot in fiber glass for the next four weeks sounds good to me. I told him, he's lucky that I can't wrap him, and his brother, and sister in bubble wrap! Just to keep them safe, ya know.
Oh, yeah, I did knit in the waiting room. They've been so quick to call us in, though, that I don't get much done. I knitted while they took his x-rays, too. See, this is a knit blog.
