    I'm sitting in Urgent Care watching my daughter get both arms casted from a fall. How in the heck is she supposed to eat, drink-- OMG!! I just thought about the whole bathroom thing??!?!??

    So the nurse starts telling me about what I'm going to have to do for her and Ash cracks up and says, "You said 'potty-duty'!!". It's kinda late.

    How on earth did Ash break **both** arms???????

      Laughing Momposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Another humorous story. Went for a walk and she and her sister were chasing each other on the curbs for about a mile and a half. Their dad tells them to stop before someone gets hurt, so they settle down and are walking in the middle of the flat street when she falls and lands in just the right position to break both forearms.
      We're a graceful crew.

    sad  Poor both of you.  Hope your little one is ok.  At least you got a good chuckle at the 'Ash cracks' thing smile

    Praying takes time and thought-- I'll give up a few of my hubchallenges.

    Truly, wishing you the best. Someday you will laugh about this too.

    What an event! I know your routine for the next few weeks is going to be stressful, but you sure will get to work closely with your daughter!

      We're leaving on a 16 hour road trip in a couple of days.  THAT should be lots of fun!  Talk about working closely!
