The house was filled with crying. Honestly, most of it was me.
Of course, as my children grew the crying was slowly replaced with whining and I became pretty good at deciphering when the cry was real and when the cry was not.
Now a days, my 12 year old whines....A LOT.
She doesn't often cry, and when she does she likely has a good reason..
Today the cry was real and I wasn't there.
Today strangers came to her aid after she dropped a drafting tablet on her foot. The corner of the tablet landed directly on her great toe and she was wearing open toe sandals.
To say her toe was a bloody mess seems anti-climatic.
I am very thankful to the three teachers that ran to her help her. I thought it was exceptionally nice that one of them called her at home this evening to make sure she was well.
She is in a shoe similar to the one I wore this summer after I broke my foot in an inflatable bounce house What can I say?
Like mother like daughter...
