I have decided this:

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.
