My darling daughter Madison always carries on like a pork chop (where DID that saying come from??) whenever anything happens to her - honestly there are times when I think her arm must've been ripped off and I go outside and she's stepped in water or something insignificant- she is just one of those kids where you cannot truly guage her pain by the sound she is making as there is no varying degrees of it! (the other 2 kids, on the other hand are completelyt normal in these matters)
So last week I picked her up from the local youth centre (yes, I can go to these things now cos I LIVE IN TOWN - lol) and she was complaining about her sore foot - and I thought she was just whingeing cos she was walking on gravel but when she really had tears streaming down her face I actually believed her.
And one of her toes was looking a bit red and wonky - and the next morning she woke up with this bruise - so I took her to the doc (then the hospital, then the doc, then back the hospital - but we wont' go there...)and she's broken her middle toe - and just for the record, it wasn't the wonky red one!lol
So she's now lapping up the sympathy - and I said to her "Who do you take after?" and she very solemnly said "My father..." lmao - if you knew him you'd know this is completely true - he is highly talented at hurting himself on stuff that you wouldn't think is dangerous - and often on couches which is what Mads broke her toe on.
