Madge Monday

In parenting it can sometimes help to have broken a leg twice, broken a thumb, torn a ligament and gone through various other physical mishaps. For example, when Madge said, "How do you know my foot's not broken?" I could calmly and knowledgeably respond, "Because you can stand on it without yelping."

And yet

I let her stay home today as long as she kept her foot up.

just remember that a sprain can be just as painfull if not more so than a break. Mama
why does a reward (coco or madge) have to be a toy??? why not exciting baking cookies, or a cake, going for ice-cream or playing a game that hasn't been played in a long time. Aren't I just horrible
