The verdict is in: a compressed elbow fracture (actually it has a much longer Latin name, but this is what I got out of it). He gets to wear that snazzy red cast for three weeks. Yes, it is waterproof. Mama coughed up $36 so her baby could play in the water.
First thing he did when he got home yesterday? Tried to get onto his scooter and ride around. I was having none of that. I made him wait until today to ride.
In other news, I’ve been writing like a woman with a job or something. First, I am thrilled to be the newest contributor to Cool Mom Picks which is exciting, fun and flattering. As some of you know, there is nothing that I like to do more than tell people about Things I Like That I Think You Should Like, Too.
On that note, I also spent the past few days putting together this list of “50 Things To Do with Kids Around Boston Before They Grow Up” for Alpha Mom. It was a great exercise in memory, creativity and counting, although I apparently don’t count so well since I always seemed to find two #9’s or no #28. I pulled it together though, and the column went up today.
Finally, my beloved and I are going to be spending the night alone! in Boston! without kids! Cannot wait. I just hope I can stay awake later than my usual 10:30 bedtime.
