So, it's that time again! Christmas!! Where the kids have each shared their Christmas Dreams or Wishes and one of these is on Caleb's list. (You might want to check it out!! - please, if you can take a minute...it will be helpful for understanding - what this post is about.)
Guess what we found him playing with over the weekend?
Why, this hanger - of all things... or part of it, thereof.
We should probably return the store-bought item which just so happens to be hiding in the closet. What do you think? We could save ourselves a buck or two...
He has been having such a blast with this..this plane-hanger... and honestly, I'm kinda glad my kid can be content with a simple ole clothes hanger.
Because, even I can't wait for Christmas this year..
In fact. This was funny...
So, he's standing in the kitchen - Sunday Morning... just hanging out off to the one side of the room. A bit odd, I thought. Here he is ..kind of glancing off into space, with the said hanger-turned-plane in hand, when my husband walks through the kitchen, just in front of him, and we hear, "Dad - stop messing up the galaxy." What?!?!?!?!
((Scott and I - We just rolled with laughter...))
With the single shake of a kitchen towel - I filled his universe once more!
Oh boy!! Wait till he sees what will be hiding "under the tree"... on Christmas Day!
Here he is showing me all the imaginary controls, and all the seats and all the "whatever else" goes into a plane...
And... yes! We're sporting a broken pinky. This happened about a week and a half ago, while playing catch football... with one of his uncles.
He goes back for follow up x-ray's, sometime today.
I'm praying for "healing in the wings"... that his finger will be fine and we can resume to what is called normal activity. Can you believe me if I say - not much has changed, though, in his busyness. He is STILL all one bundle of action packed fun... and not much stops him.
Until next time...
UPDATED to ADD, regarding Caleb's broken pinky finger:
The Dr. visit today entailed more xrays. The finger is healing - slowly - it appears we'll still be on activity "restrictions" and a bandaged splint will be "our friend" for the next two weeks.
