better late than never

Yesterday was a wild day.
Sunday night Jeremiah decided he was tired of me telling him no to jumping off the roof. So he took matters into his own hands and jumped off a friend's playhouse (yes, the same one he got his nose smashed with a baseball bat on). He landed "just right" and got hurt. He didn't want to go to the ER, he is still traumatized from my trip to the ER with the kidney stones. So he hid how bad it hurt. He had some motrin, and handled it. When Scott's alarm went off, he asked if it was morning yet, and when Scott said it was, he asked, "then why aren't we in the car yet?". So needless to say, I took him to the doctor's. He dislocated his shoulder, and broke his arm at the elbow/radius. We spent the next several hours waiting in the Ortho's office to be seen. Again, he has only had motrin, once after it happened, and again at 6:30 am. So at 1:30 when we were in the little waiting room waiting to see the doctor, he lost it. He was tired of hurting! But we are splinted and slung, and he is much better. The doctor asked if he had learned his lesson about jumping off stuff, to which he responded, "Yes, next time, I will hold my arm up!". And that sums up my JEREMIAH! silly kid, but tough as nails.

This morning, my friends, Jeannie, and Kimberly came over to work on teacher gifts. So we have been in the craft room all morning!!! Jeannie wrote out this verse and we made it into 31 bookmarks to give to the teachers for one of the appreciation projects. We have each child return one dollar to the library, and we buy books for the library in the teachers names, and to recognize that, we are giving them a bookmark. Aren't they so cute?!?!? Thanks for all your hard work and help Jeannie!

I just came here by way of Emily. I am sorry that your son broke his arm.. but I literally laughed out loud and spit milk at my screen at the "next time I'll hold my arm up!" part. Wow! You have quite a boy there!
And you are all kinds of crafty!

Thanks steph! He is a character. I need to get him a shirt that reads "the opinions of this child do not necessarily represent the opinions of his parents!"
He is a riot.
Look forward to working with you for PTA. Thanks for your kind words!
