Snips and Snails & Puppy Dog Tails
That's what boys are made of. At least that's what they say. Gosh, there is such a difference between girls and boys. With little girls, play time is usually quiet. There is coloring, dressing dolls, playing princess, tea parties, playing in mommy's makeup and putting on fashion shows. With boys, it's trucks, trains, and motorcycles. Sounds of "vrooom" and "boom" and "crash," running around in circles getting dizzy, fixing things with tools, playing soccer, and of course broken bones. He'd watch Toy Story 5 (million) times a day if I let him. Driving mommy crazy is what Matthew does best. But I wouldn't change it for anything. Matthew's elbow update: He's scheduled for surgery on 2/23. Probably in the morning. I won't know what time til the day before. We're hoping that he has full range of motion after he heals. He'll be in a cast for about a month and then be allowed to slowly start using the arm. I've been told that the hospital we're going to is one of the best for these types of injuries. And let me tell you, the kid hasn't learned his lesson, he's running around in circles chasing Brianna as I type this. None of my kids have ever had surgery before. Emily was scheduled to have her tonsils and adenoids removed last year and I ended up cancelling the day before. I'm a wimp! Please keep him in your prayers. And me too! I'm a nervous wreck.
