Well, this day turned out to be more eventful than I intended or really even wished for. Abigail locked me out of her room and I was forced to take the door knob off. Before I put the door knob back on Abigail locked all of us in her room which forced me to jump out of her window. And then I had to call Raymond home from work so that we could take Abigail to the emergency room because her elbow dislocated for the second time in 3 weeks (we didn’t realize that’s what happened the first time, but now we know that it was a dislocation that corrected itself). Its called a nursemaid’s elbow and is pretty common in children until the age of 4. The doctor said that it seems like Abigail will be a “frequent flier” of the nursemaid’s elbow since it happens so easily and corrects itself just as easily.
But now we’re all home and both of the girls are very asleep (phew!). Tonight I am thankful for windows that open with relative ease, for unlocked doors, for a manager who will let Raymond go home to take care of his family, and for healthcare facilities that are open 24/7.
And here is a picture of our new bow center and a better picture of the revamped dresser:
We also had the pleasure of spending the evening with the Elieffs on Monday night. We grilled burgers and hot dogs, laughed, talked about buying houses, and protected Abigail from the cuddly dog, Humphrey.
