Life Is Just So Daily

Last Wednesday....







So, before I got sick.... I took Gage to his pedi ortho appt.

We got there....a little late....so, we had to wait.
...and wait.
and wait some more: long enough for TWO bathroom trips.

First bathroom trip went off without a hitch.
Second bathroom trip---um, not so much.
As we arrived at the door, it was locked. Obviously occupied.
So we waited.
...about 2 minutes later, a lady emerged, and we entered.
Before the door was shut, Gage, in his I'm-only-3-and-so-I-never-whisper voice, said LOUDLY "Ewwww! IT SMELLS LIKE ORANGE & POOOOOOP! WHAT DID THAT GIRL DO????" He was covering his nose, and trying to get back out. He was holding onto the door frame trying to leave. We heard giggling in the hallway in response to Gage's candid description...I was so embarrassed, but the boy had a point....it was stinky in there! And no amount of citrus spray could cover it. Lord knows the gal tried!

Anyway.... we had our x-rays, as usual. New bone growth. That explained why he seems to have a knot like a big fat marble right where the fracture is. Dr.S explained that his little body has grown new bone to correct the fracture, and in time the knot will go down as his body realizes that it doesn't need it all to be there.
No, it should not affect his football career in future years. [should he choose that...]

Throughout the whole process---he was thrilled with his little gown, and quite upset that they wouldn't let him take it home. It had Porky Pig & Daffy Duck on it, and he likes this little cartoon "Duck Dodgers"...you can see why he would want it. His hair was a mess, but his little face...I tell you what...it's VERY HARD to ever be mad at him!

He looks like a little angel in those pictures.
As for the bathroom incident? Kids have the innocent, unpretentious knack of coming out with what we all think!

He is such a cutie!

I had that situation happy to me when I stopped into Bed Bath & Beyond the other day. I almost passed out...literally. It was sickening. But being pregnant, I couldn't hold it and had to suffer through.
