Wise words Alix! Charlie, I hope your daughter heals quickly and goes home to your family soon.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Man....... and before the holidays-----everyone's right--she'll be ok in no time and look at the extra attention she's getting---I also agree with Alix in letting your son "be the man" and take care of her little errand needs and play games with her.....with 5 kids and this is the first broken bone in your family you're sitting on a pretty cloud!! Hang in there, Papa!

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Charlie, I know it makes you sick at your stomach. First with my son when he was about five - wrist - fell just as we were leaving for daughter's wedding. He didn't seem to be too hurt but we wound up leaving the reception and having the bones set. It hurt but today at 21 he doesn't even really remember.

Granddaughter last year at six was a different story - constantly climbing, off the back off the back of he sofa onto carpet. Arm again. She doesn't climb so much anymore.

Your daughter will be ok my friend, just pain both you and her for a few days. And no, God's help doesn't hurt!

Glad that she is (more or less) alright. Alix is a super mom, I think her advice was good. Having your son take care of her will teach him more than just not climbing on the table. Good luck, let us know how this turns out.

well, she's home now. after putting on the cast she came home, hurt, but in a good spirit. She is a sleep now and we'll have to be carefull and watch all kind of little things. I'm sure she'll be fine much sooner than I will. I am yet to face the grandmothers, we are in big trouble with them, oh my...

Charlie my heart goes out to you and your family. Poor sweet little girl....but remember, she's young and thank goodness will heal quickly. Give your son an extra hug from me...poor guy....not good to walk around with guilt.

Bless your hearts...I know it gives you pain to see your child hurt, but as everyone has said, she'll be well before you know it.
We get by with a little help from our friends

So sorry to hear about your little one's accident, Charlie. Good to know she's back home & on the mend. Nothing wrong with being sentimental. Hope this (new baby) Panda Cam will make you all smile & lift your spirits. (Watch during daylight hours to view.)
