2 posts in 2 days! That's a record for me!

Today was the first day of school for Kalli & Dylan. They both seemed to have a really good 1/2 of a day. Here they are all decked out in their school gear. :)

We got a call that the dentist could work Jerry & both kids in so they jumped on it. $650 later they were all clean & had a plan for their teeth. Thank goodness all that was insurance paid! The only one left is Jerry to find out the plan for his teeth & they've made him a special appt. tomorrow to discuss his. I keep telling him - you know that can't be good!

And I forgot to mention yesterday - Jerry's dad shattered a couple bones in his leg. I guess it's pretty bad because the surgeon made comments about "piecing it back together" and using titanium rods. Doesn't sound comfortable to say the least. Then tonight we had more of a scare when one nurse told Linda the wrong information and had us all thinking that Jim had a blood clot in his lung. Since then 2 others have said he was tested for them but that he *didn't* have any. Which is a big relief!

He's in his cast

We were able to get Dylan in to see Dr. Hicks on Friday. It's really a sad thing though when an orthopedic doctor can come into the room & say "Brother now? What are you trying to keep up with sister?" and remember us from Kalli's last broken arm.

After examing his x-rays the doctor concluded that it was a greenstick fracture rather than the buckle break that we were told at Urgent Care. Either way it's still a break and it's still going to take a while to heal. Dylan will be in a cast for at least 4 weeks and then may go into the removable splint for a while. Funny thing is it doesn't seem to affect Dylan too much at all - now me? I am going to be a basket case before it's all healed. Just tonight he couldn't understand why I was telling him he couldn't run outside....because he wasn't, he was just "jogging".

Now tomorrow they start school (more stress there) and my babies are both in the Elementary school longer are they Early Childhood. Really amazes me how the time flies. And the mommy in me just wishes there was some way to slow it down because the more I think about it, the more I know they'll be grown before long. Dylan may vow to live with his mommy forever (and that sounds just fine to his mom now)but I'm already seeing how he's trying not to be a mommy's boy. :( He will not go in public (Walmart, school) - anywhere he'll be seen - holding my hand...and that makes me sad. Oh and then today when I was signing his cast, he was upset that I signed it mommy instead of just mom. Now I know that's not a big difference but it just reinforces how big they are getting....too big for I'm just mom.

So we'll see how tomorrow goes. I'm sure they'll have a great time, it'll just be the waking up process that will be tough.

we thought the loose tooth was a big deal......look what happened today.....

Dylan broke his wrist. What they say is a buckle break. Was really hoping Dylan would shy away from the whole broken limb thing after all the trouble we've had with Kalli. Not even 3 years & this is now our 3rd break (1st for Dylan).

Jerry had the kids at the new playground park today & Dylan was playing on the glide bars (about 5 ft in the air & they hold on & they glide along the top bars holding those) & falls off & lands on his arm. They all came to show me at work & really I had my doubts about it.

We ended up driving to the ER about an hr away, seen that would have been an all night event, & went to the Pediatric Urgent Care just down the road (after I found out they had x-ray equipment). We get in there & the same kid that was crying all the way there was moving his wrist & pushing himself onto the table. I was a mean mom & really thought it was an act. Turns out we were wrong.

Good thing is we're established we a good orthopedic doctor (from all Kalli's breaks) & he is going to see Dylan tomorow to put a cast on him. Believe me, I thought it was bad having to deal with a cast with Kalli - Dylan will be a whole 'nother story! Dread, dread, dread baths, etc.

So that was my big long post and our super long day. So besides us getting to school shop tomorrow, we get to go get a cool blue cast. Oh & school starts Monday & that was his right hand - the one he writes with.

I loved that little bird in the Kitty Toys stamp set that I had to use him over & over again!

Also, I seem to have found a new obsession....font characters. And boy does scrapNfonts have a huge variety! Now just to narrow my cart down to what I actually want!
