Yesterday (Thursday), Monkey fell off of the couch and landed wrong. To make a long story short he almost broke his right foot. He has a bad sprain. We are home after a long ordeal at the doctor's office.
Hubby had to work from 6:30 am til 9pm yesterday and it was so hard on me. MY mom kept Tiger and my Dad went with me and monkey to the doctor's office.
We were all gearing up for the semi-annual yard sale (Friday) today (which I forgot to take pictures of). My Dad's sis came up and got my stuff last night and she and my mom put it out. There was tons of stuff there but only my aunt (my mom's sis) and mom to work it. Too much for two people, so my brother stayed home from the orchards today and helped out. The boys and I went and got breakfast for everybody this morning. Did I mention that I still have a twin size bed and more clothes to take over there? We stayed at the yard until Monkey had a COMPLETE meltdown. He has NEVER acted that bad ANYWHERE before. I know his foot is bothering him some.
The doctor said if he is still in pain, favoring it or it is swollen Monday to call and they will get us set up with a peds ortho dr at Children's hospital. He said the x-rays looked good but there is always that chance and since his foot just doesn't look right, then again there's that chance. Lovely just lovely!
Tomorrow is yard sale again (it is mostly indoors) and it is suppose to storm. hubby is home from work thankfully. I need a break and he told me to go and hang out at the yard sale. We will probably shut it down early. We never have a lot of business on Saturday usually. We also have to get decoration flowers for the 6 YES, 6 decorations we will have in the next 3 weeks. Sunday is 2 of those decorations and then we will go to preaching with my Dad at his church (where I was raised). We also have a lunch thing to attend that afternoon (with the boys no less).
I am way behind on dishes, laundry, ironing, etc. It will wait, I have to be right there with the boys......EVERY second it seems. Yesterday I was withing 5 feet of him when he fell. I had stepped over the baby gate to get a drink of water and before I knew it he was running on the long couch. I just couldn't catch him in time. I am still beating myself up over that.......
I just don't get it. You know there are "moms" in this world that don't love their kids and let them do whatever and you wonder if that child will "make it". Then there are the overprotective moms like me, that watch and guard their children will all of their heart and strength and they still get hurt. I feel like the worst Mommy sometimes.........
Have a good weekend! Blessings!!!!!
