Alise broke her arm

Alise fell off the bunkbed ladder (for the 3rd or 4th time...she doesn't learn from her mistakes, obviously). This time did the trick...she broke her arm. I thought that is was just a spranged wrist because it didn't swell or bruise and she still could use it...sometime with no pain. I think she must have a high tolerance for pain. I didn't take her to the Dr. until 8 days later...Doug didn't think it was broke either and said he was just pacifing me to take her in and make sure if it was broke or not. My first thought after she fell was that she broke it but then she didn't respond like I thought she would...gotta trust our first instincts!

These are the pictures of getting the cast on and then finally getting it off (what a pain in the butt the cast is during bath time!)....of course the coveted sucker at the end. :)

So my husband has been working in New Mexico building a home for a month now. He will be working there for 2 or 3 more months. He works there during the week and comes home on the weekend. This is bitter sweet because we need the work and I'm very grateful for it...however, I'm not very good and being a single mom to a 5, 3 and 6 month old. It seems I never get anything done anymore and all I do is break up fights (between Brynn and Alise) and feed kids/babies. I know I am blessed and I have a lot to be grateful for but a break would be nice sometimes. This is why I don't post very much is not always good or pretty. It's life and we are all just trying to do our best and enjoy it along the way. It's just hard to enjoy it sometimes.
