Jackson has a loft bed in his room. It is really cool and perfect for him. Jameson's bed is under the loft bed. The arrangement seems to work well. Yesterday, Jameson (3) told me he climbed up the "letter" to turn off Jack Jack's fan. I told him that he is not allowed to do that, because he could fall and get hurt. So this morning, what does Jameson do? He climbed up the ladder and fell. He is a bit of a "drama queen" so I brushed him off all morning. He said his foot hurt, and he refused to put weight on it all morning. Now, in my defense, when he scrapes his knee, he does the same thing. One time he sat for 24 hours refusing to stand because he fell on the sidewalk and scrapped his knee. I don't recall it even bleeding that time. Anyway, so this is not new for him. By lunch time, however, it was really swollen and turning blue across the top. So, we have an appointment in 45 minutes to go check it out. 

Seriously? Seriously. Just the craptacular week I am having. Oh, wait, it's a different week isn't it? Ok, just the craptacular two weeks I am having. 

Things have been very difficult for me since returning home from our trip. So, this is just the icing on the cake I suppose. Mmm... cake. Cake could make it better. For a little bit at least. Pineapple upside down cake would make me happy. 

Anyway, I will post once I find out the details regarding little Jang A Lang's foot. Obviously I hope it isn't broken, but I really really hope it isn't - we have the kids a surprise planned next week. A cast would not be a good thing.

Praying for that foot! And praying for you, too! I hate it that your life is "craptacular" right now, and wish I could make you a cake to make it all feel better...and of course, I would eat half of it just to spare you the guilt of having consumed an entire cake by yourself1 :)

Love you!!!

I'm praying too - for no break in your boy's foot, and for a good dose of happy days for you. Hope you get to celebrate your kids and spend time healing together.
