Momma Told Me There'd Be Days Like This

There'll be days like this my momma said!! Wowzers! That's my theme song today.

I have a dear friend who suffers from debilitating migraines.....the last two weeks have been very rough on her poor head so today Keira and I brought her son home after preschool with us to play. It was great! Kade was excited to find his little buddy here when he got home from school too!

I have another dear friend suffering from a yet to be determined autoimmunological disease that is just crippling her body. Really bad day for her today so I got her 2 little girls and brought them over too.

Then a neighbor and her 2 kids and their dog came over to have lunch with us all. It was chaos...but lovely chaos. Here's a little sample....

The neighbor had to leave to pick up another friend's kiddo from school so she took her son and Kade with her.

They weren't gone but about 2 minutes before I heard a slam and a scream. Rushed downstairs to find one of the oldest girls bringing in a hysterical Keira. I looked at her finger and totally froze....it was flattened in the middle and had absolutely no color....thinking about it now I feel so lame...I couldn't even decide what to do......finally grabbed an ice pack from the freezer.....called another neighbor to come over and sit with my kids....called my Dr. and told them I was on the way.

Of course I met every red light and slow driver that were to be found.....but we got there....dear dh was waiting for us....I had called him at some point and so had my really nice neighbor.....

After checking her out our Dr. decided it wasn't broken....just very badly smashed.....expect it too swell a lot.....expect it to turn black, blue and purple......expect it to hurt.

My poor baby....we got in the car to come home and she said "Mommy you need to tell the kids that I can't play anymore. I need to lay in my bed and sleep with ice." And that's where she is...snuggled in her bed with ice on her finger, napping, while 7 other kiddos are playing downstairs.

Enough drama for today! Bring on the weekend!!
