Worst Vacation: Blogtober 14

Worst vacation.

After two days on a stay-cation, Little Sister #2 broke her arm. She had just turned 3 about two weeks before. When she had to have the x-ray, I thought her sisters were going to break down the door because they wanted to save her from whatever was making her scream. It was beyond stressful.

She had to have surgery to pin it back together. So all plans for any road trips went out the window. We spent a lot of time worrying whether she would be able to move her fingers.

It took a day or two for her to be able to walk without falling over. The cast seemed to throw her balance off. It might have weighed almost as much as she did. The vacation was all doctor’s appointments – getting the cast on, getting the cast off, getting prescriptions, getting popsicles and so on.


She has totally recovered. Luckily, she did not have to have physical therapy or any more surgeries. We can’t even tell which arm she broke. I can only tell if I look at her elbows.

So even though it was a terrible vacation, I’m grateful that she mended. There was one bonus: we could get rid of the crib and transition very easily into a big girl bed.

P.S. I’m not sure why I waited so long to get rid of the crib. I think I was in the process of looking for a toddler bed when this happened. Don’t judge me. 😉
