Epic Mom Day!

I hope everyone is having a better day than I have been having. It is kind of a lengthy post, but here is what happened.

I picked C up from school this morning to take him to his orthdontist appointment. After that, I dropped him off at school. I was doing grocery shopping and going to take care of various errands, then my phone was M

M: ... Mom, I think I broke my thumb...

Me: What!? How!?!

M: I was in gym class...

Long story short, I went back to the school and checked him out. We got in the car and I was calling to see if we could make an appointment right away with our doctor. Then, right after I hung up My phone rang. It was from R.

R: Mom... I am not feeling well, I have chills and am aching all over...

You are kidding me! It was kind of humorous at this point and made me laugh a little. I made a phone call to cancel my 1:30 prosthesist appointment and went straight to school to pick her up and we went home to situate her. I felt bad to leave a sick child with a fever, but I needed to take M to take care of his thumb.

Yup. After the X-ray we confirmed that his thumb was indeed fractured. This boy fractured his pinky a few months ago and we were at the doctor's office last week for his injured hip from his Martial arts! On the way home I had to fight the urge to stop by at a store and buy a BIG roll of Bubble wrap and duck tape and just wrap him up so he won't get injured! Argh...

We picked C up from school and came home and all is well for now.
It was definitely a crazy and chaotic day, but I am so grateful that I was able to be there for them. A mom's job never ends and I know I will miss days like this once they are grown and gone even that may sound crazy.

M's casted hand is a symbol of "job well done" or a "pat on the shoulder"for my effort today.
You see, he is giving me a thumbs up!
