As I write this today is my grandson’s second birthday. In honor of his birthday I wanted to share a story with you on how his sister tried to make his day a bit better last month.
Late June my grandson got his leg twisted while on a slide and broke one of the bones in the leg. He wasn’t allowed to walk on it for a few days and then was stuck inside because it rained so often and he wasn’t allowed to get it wet. He wasn’t able to enjoy a bath because he hated the covering they found for the cast which also meant the wading pool was out. Let’s just say six weeks with a toddler in a cast is a long six weeks.
So one afternoon his sister decided to give his a trip to the zoo to break his boredom and stop the cranky mood he was in because he wanted to be outside. She presented mom and brother with zoo tickets.
Then she walked them through the house to show them all the animals she had set up.
The monkeys were found on the deep freeze and the frogs were hiding in the corner.
I guess the giraffes and elephants, (and is that a cow?) enjoyed each others company.
The animals were spread throughout the house. I hadn’t realized just how many stuffed animals my grandchildren had and I understand why my son begs people not to give his children any more stuffed animals. But for one day they came in handy.
My grandson got his cast off August 1st and he’s happily spending as much time outdoors as possible.
