The Best Way to Be a MOM:
Be a Gumby and not a Ball Point Pen.
Two days ago, my middle daughter fell on the grass when she tripped. Yesterday, she went to the doctor and within 3 hours had a splint on her hand because of a tiny fracture.
I did not wake up thinking I would have one of my children in a splint at the end of the day.
It was just the way things worked out. I had a choice. Be a Gumby--flexible and set aside my plans for the day. Or I could be a BallPoint Pen and be unwilling to bend, complaining as I had to rearrange my day. I decided my family needs me to be a Gumby.
