"look on the bright side mum"
Our #4 said upon leaving the doctors office this morning after what appeared to be the longest wait in all my waiting history to date.
"it could have been a whole lot worse, it could have been my leg, now imagine getting on an airplane with a broken leg?" he smiled




after which he proceeded to sing 'always look on the bright side of life' from monty python all the way home.
and indeed, on thinking about his bright side of things, i see we are most fortunate to be heading to old blighty with only his right hand in a cast.

she thinks it quite obvious why she rarely asks to take her child's photo ~ Tif

we all live in some sort of denial tif and i believe you are in mother denial...why you ask? because you are worrying about a cast when you most certainly will be better served to worry about the lovely, large, perfect-lashed, come hither eyes on your number 4...he will be a lady killer before long....making the cast issue seem like a walk in the park!!! (lol) and here you are going across the big water?? how wonderful!

Carey said...

Prepare yourself for more of the same. I can see it in his (magnificent) eyes!

Heather said...

Haha, he wins. Hope he feels better soon.

Sonja said...

So glad that dear son got properly attended to, but sorry you both had to wait so long. Now you know you're going to get 100 of these questions, but I have to ask, where is that Orla wallpaper in your Mossy Shed? We need more photos of it, pretty please.

Robin said...

what a sweet boy being all cheerful about his arm. love you blog by the way! i lost the address after having my computer fixed, and now just found you again. yay! --robin

I think the color of wrap on the cast goes great with the wallpaper. Secondly, that is one of my favorite Python songs - right up there with their song "I like traffic lights" happy week

Sounds like your little guy has a good attitude on life. Hope he heals up soon.

Another bright side is that he got coloured, as opposed to white, bandaging. Now you just need to add a few quotes, the odd olive green doily, etc......

I love his attitude! What a great kid. The girls are gonna love him with those big eyes!!

angelina said...

aw. tif he sounds lovely and making the best of life. they wont let you fly with a broken leg btw. we were grounded with the inlaws for 7 weeks with my poor 2yearolds break.

Roxanne said...

What character, even with the cast. And any child that knows Monty Python by heart is ok in my book! Hope it heals soon. Coincidence that his cast nicely matches your decor?

Holly Knitlightly said...

Haha aw, I'm glad he's looking on the bright side of things! :) It's a nice colour for a cast, at least!

c'est Moi! Heather from the TinknFrog said...

It is good that only his thumb was broken. And what a good lad for helping lighten the mood with a bit of Python. They are truly timeless, aren't they? You know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, a nods as good as a wink to a blind bat....well you see what I mean. Cheers

DANA said...

Very cute photos! and it seems like he likes getting his picture taken! What a positive vibe to have around, blessings!

Jacqueline said...

Our #4s, it seems, have amassed quite a glorious collection of broken parts, including mutually sympathetic footie injuries! My least favourite, I must admit, was the baseball that delivered a broken shnoz ... no fun, that one. I do hope that *your* #4 heals speedily and has a blast across the pond.

ps He's been shorn! :)

Serenata said...

He certainly sounds like an optimistic character! When are off to old blighty? I'm sure you have mentioned it...I've forgotten!

jessica daisy said...

well I must say, what a lovely colour!

Pink Milk said...

Good morning Tif.

You have the loveliest blog.

Talk of your wonderful ordinarily extraordinary blanket has reached these shores! It so appeals as I too favour 'less is more' crochet!

Warm wishes to your son - very fetching teal bandage!

You're coming to Blighty? Please bring some sunshine!

Ha ha ha, what is it in the genitic makeup of boys that mean they can't help but pull faces as soon as a camera appears?

sean the prawn said...

You are right it could have been worse;(
as far as casts go, that is a very peachy shade of green.
And what a mischeviously cute little urchin he looks to be.

Autumn Mist said...

For a boy of his age, and considering the circumstances, he looks positively perky! And it is his right hand, I see. So who will feed him and dress him and comb his hair, poor little waif.

dottie angel said...

haha! you see, a little bit of monty python is like a spoonful of medicine is it not!
he is most wise to a cast, this one being his fourth. this time they cast him up good and proper so he is unable to use his hand, for in the past he has fractured his wrist further in a cast whilst testing out some monkey bars. that time they cast him up to his armpit so he could not swing from anything for weeks! gosh just thinking about that makes me smile at his silly ways...

and sonja, the wallpaper is upstairs, here's a link to it. went up a year and a half ago. so you can see orla is still lurking in the shed. this one is lovely but i must say it would be a little too much for me if i had it downstairs!

What a sweet boy, trying to cheer up his poor, frazzled mother! He reminds me of my number 3, who also cannot stand still and smile for the length of time it takes to press the shutter release.

Vicki K. said...

That is Some Kind of thumb cast! What a charming and positive kid :)

Perth Lawyers said...

Lol such a cool boy..look at his face

travelingmama said...

Oh, we have said those very words. My second broke his arm the night before we were leaving urgently from Morocco to Spain because my pregnancy wasn't going well. At the time it seemed like nothing else could go wrong, so as we drove to Spain with broken arm all plastered, we all said what we were thankful for... including the fact that it was not his leg.

Best wishes for a speedy healing!
