Tag tripped the Boy last week, sweeping his feet out from under him and causing a nice little hairline fracture to his elbow. It was a couple of days before I realized it was probably broken and took him to the ER. He was a trooper and was pretty excited about the attention the sling afforded him…for all of one whole day. Now he’s totally over it and wants me to vacuum it out all the time to cool it off – a trick my mom used when I broke my thumb.

So in honor of my kid’s jillionth trip to the ER (how sad is it that we know our way back to the radiology department?), this one’s for him.

Oh, and I’m changing the Boy’s name to Boy Wonder because he asks such awesome questions all the time. Check it out. And remember to preface every question regardless of subject matter with a weighty and thoughtful, “Mom?” and my response, “Yes?”


Boy Wonder: If you were in the hottest oven in the whole wide world…um…could you fill up a WHOLE GLASS with sweat?

Boy Wonder: How come dogs have thumbs, but they never use them?

Boy Wonder: If you had the BIGGEST table in the whole wide world, and you, um, put it…um, on…an elephant’s back? Would the elephant fall over?

Boy Wonder: (calling from the bathroom) Mom! I’m pooping acid!
