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.

My oldest will be 14 in november, I guess it was about his 8th or 9th birthday and I was making cupcakes for his family birthday party and put sprinkles on them...I may as well have covered them with green beans! he announced that he was way too old for sprinkles! I was so sad.

I love your "mommy vs mom" story. So true... I haven't had to deal with broken bones and knock on wood that I don't. I can't imagine what you were going through.
