Mom of the Year; working toward 2009 Title.
So...it's really never too early to start earning my title as 2009 Mom of the Year, right?
Remember this guy?
You know the one---my son?
Yes well....remember how he broke his clavicle, and we took him to the Pedi Ortho doc on Friday? Well....remember how we were told to avoid all activities which may result in a fall?
Yeah, well, um....
So....this little fall incident took place in the bathroom.
We've been working on potty training.
He was all ready to use the "big potty" on Friday night... He had his little stool pulled up next to the potty. We pulled his pants down (but avoided the complete undress for toileting which he sometimes insists upon...). He stood there on his stool preparing to use the potty....leaning forward....then WHAM! He leans forward too much, the stool slides out from under him, he falls foward into the potty with his left shoulder/clavicle area landing smack dab on the rim of the bowl.
SON OF A B*TCH! [Not him of course---the situation!]
He was a crying, hurt mess.
I was freaked.
I immediately paged the doc on call, expecting the worst, and expecting to head back up to the ER for another x-ray...
By the time the doc on call called back---Gage was happy again, had been playing with toys, and then was tucked into bed.
On call doc wasn't too worried.
So then---I wasn't either.
If we keep going like this---it's going to be a very.loooong.healing process!
