pigeon toed...

After all of the drama we have had to deal with over the past 48 hours I have to share an important fact, Camryn is pigeon toed! She is forever tripping over her own two feet. I feel SO bad for her but have been told MANY times she will out grow it. Let's face it, Cam is not the most fluid child in the world. She can be rather clumsy. She likes to run REAL fast and 9 times out of 10 she will wipe out. Sometimes she will get up, brush her hands off and go even faster the next time OR she will cry, run to me & show me her latest boo boo. She has quite a few! Our kids all get boo boo's but she is the only one that I can say has an excuse, her darn feet! To make matters even worse we recently found some really cool CROC "imposters" at a steal. TOO good to pass up if you know what I mean! They are a little too big for her & make her pigeon toes even worse! If you can believe it they actually make her trip! Tonight while all the neighbors were outside chatting Cam went for a walk with Emily. She is our neighbors ten year old daughter & lives a few houses down from my mom's. She's a certified "mother's helper" and helps us out a TON! She & her sisters usually come over to play with the babies quite often. Tonight she took the entire tribe for a walk, since I had their stroller in my vehicle at work they just walked. On this walk she tripped & hit the same spot she had stitches several weeks ago. I am told that blood gushed all over the place! I can just about imagine how poor Emily felt. She ended up carrying Cam back to my mom's to get help. Not only did Camryn have blood all over her clothes so did Emily! Of course Michael then calls me at work to give me all the details and tells me that I need to come home. Yes there are four kids that he has to deal with but he can handle this. I was already coming home on my dinner break so I would see how things were when I got there. I SO did not want another 4 hour ER visit! ugh! I have had my fill of hospitals this week! I know it's terrible that I feel that way but it really sucks when you get to the ER, wait around & then they do nothing for you! I could have done that staying at home! LOL! Once I arrived at the house Aunt Kara was already there bandaging her up. She has all the goodies when it comes to boo boo's! We ended up using 2 butterfly bandages & one big bandaid. It looked SO pretty after we were done with her! ha! The good thing was that the bleeding had stopped & she was good. We decided to see how it was in the morning. No ER visit, YAY! I went back to work knowing that she would be seeing a doctor of some sort tomorrow. FYI, I have mentioned her being pigeon toed to our Pedi & they are not concerned. They continue to tell me she will outgrow it. WHEN!?Maybe after they see how many boo boo's she gets or how many stitches she continues to get they will be. LOL! I think for now I need to take stock in BandAids, peroxide & steri strips! I have a feeling this is just the start of our traumatic moments. I just hope that she grows out of being...
