Last weekend Owen was being his boyish self and following his brothers around outside.
They went up to their fort in the upstairs of the garage so he followed.
Or attempted to.
But fell backwards off the ladder.
And hurt his arm.
We thought maybe it was broken.
If it had been my first child I would have probably been freaking out and rushed him to the ER.
But this experienced Mama knows that if there aren't any bones sticking out or blood squirting anywhere to just let it play out on its own.
So I snuggled him on the couch.....
Gave him lots of attention...
Wrapped his arm in a sling.....
It bothered him for the rest of the day.
But by the next day, it was like it had never happened.
Must have just been a sprain or bruised.
