Scotty's new look


Last Friday, Scotty fell down our stairs again, only this time he went backwards.
We were going on our vacation on Sunday and he wouldn't have been able to swim if it was broken, so being the stellar parents that we are, we decided to just "watch it" and see how he did while we were away. His arm never swelled up and he played around like normal the entire time we were in Park City. However, during our getaway, we noticed that he was still holding it carefully and not wanting to do much with it. The poor little guy never complained unless someone grasped his hand or he banged it on something. Well, he seems to be pretty pleased with the new look and was so perfectly well behaved during the 4 hour doctor/hospital visit. In fact, the only one losing it was Zack when he saw them wrapping his little arm up in the cast. Not that I can blame him - I get choked up whenever I think of him hurting but not ever saying anything to anyone about it.

Oh My! I have heard it more then once of a kid having a broken something and the parents waiting a few days. Hope he recovers soon!

You are so BRAVE Scotty! And I'll bet that cast is great for karate chopping your brothers.


as for mom and dad: nothing makes you feel more helpless than when one of your kids are hurting. Parenting challenge #129.

That's a serious threshold for pain! Ouch!

Does he start kindergarden this year?

Zack said...

No, Scotty still has another year to go before starting Kindergarten... he just turned 4 a little less than a month ago. I do think he'd do well in Kindergarten, though. For crying out loud, by the time he turned 2, he had already taught himself the entire alphabet and his numbers up to 20 (click here).

However, in a couple of weeks, Scotty will start attending a pre-school with a few of his same-age friends from the ward. I'm sure he'll love it to pieces.
