"Mom, did you know two papers makes a baby?  They sit on the eggs and then it turns into a diaper."
Basketball season is over.. *sniff*.  While I'm happy to say hello to my Saturdays and Tuesday evenings again, I am sad that all the fun is over.  I was so impressed by how much Ethan learned this year.  We started the season not even being able to dribble and ended with three shots and some mean defensive skills!  The coaches gave a speech about how much he'd learned - going from twirling in circles to setting up plays.  I was a bit choked up.  So proud of my big kid.
 He didn't have a hard cast for his buddies to sign, so I used plain band-aids and had them sign that.  They didn't stick very well to the mesh sling, but the star wars tattoo band-aids did, so I used them as tape.  It turned out pretty cool.
His pain has been pretty low - amazingly.  I tried him off meds today, but that didn't work, so I'll keep giving him Tylenol for the time being.  Friday we go back to the doc - fingers crossed for a hard cast!
Lucas is loving getting to be the active one and Ethan is HATING having to watch him at swim lessons.  I don't think he's ever had to watch Lucas do anything that he wasn't involved in.  Hard life lesson right there.
Today Ethan pulled out a tooth - amazingly it wasn't even loose.  I think he was so frustrated today because of the no meds thing that he just kept yanking on it until it came out.  Impressive.
This is one of the weeks that just seems off. We've had weird weather (what the snow?) and weird schedules.  Getting used to the one-armed man has been tough as well.  But....  Ethan's doing well - Lucas is being a charmer and all is well.  Can't ask for much more.

I can relate to the one-armed-man. I had my shoulder replaced 6 weeks ago. I hope he has adjusted smoothly.
