So as everyone has probably seen by now the pics on Southern Bella’s Ways to save of Bella and her broken ankle. Just to recap if I may, we took seven kids to Gatlinburg up in the Smokey Mountains and made it home relatively unharmed except for a few sibling battles no bruises, breaks, or blood of any kind. We got back from our trip and went to Nano’s house to visit 10 minutes later….Bella steps off a step and we have a broken ankle. So the next day we got her casted up after a long stay at the ER the night before. She had the cast on for about 4 to 5 weeks and then they put her in a brace and a boot for two weeks. We are in week number 1 right now and boy the battle has begun! We have a doctor’s note for two weeks of NO PE at school, NO running, NO running around without that brace and without that boot!! NO!!!!! Well I come home from work two days ago and I see Bella outside across the street from our house….BAREFOOT…..PUSHING HER BIKE. So She quickly scampers back across the street as she sees me…..scamper means RUNS as you will see above…NO RUNNING……LOL this girl is killing me. I parked my car got out and calmly said…..BELLA GET YOUR TAIL OVER HERE RIGHT NOW!!!!! I said what are you doing outside barefoot? She said” Mama said I could sit outside and talk to my friends without my brace.” I said did she say that you could ride your bike without your brace too? ” I wasn’t riding my bike!” I said Bella I saw you across the street with your bike.” I was just walking it around while Vivian was riding hers.” Bella do you expect me to believe that you were not riding your bike that you were just pushing your bike around. Let’s go ask your mother if she saw you just pushing your bike. “OK daddy maybe I did ride it a little!” It is something everyday with this one. She is 7 and I think that I better ***BRACE*** myself for ten years from now…OH BOY CAN’T WAIT!
