We have a small house with seven people. The little ladies share a room with their little brother, and this calls for bunk beds. Josephine decided that she wanted the top, and I thought, ok, this will cure the sleepwalking, because surely she cannot climb down asleep. It didn't quite work out that way - her first night on the top bunk and BAM - at about two in the morning, she fell and fractured her radius. Her first "broken" bone.
A few days later, at Children's hospital, Josephine chose bright pink for her cast. She will wear it for two weeks. She was so excited to get signatures. Everyone in our family signed it and in school the next day she let her classmates sign and draw on it. She says she was quite the celebrity. No one else in her third grade class had a cast all year.
