Thanks a lot Ollie

Life has been cuh-razy! In the past 2 1/2 weeks, Davy has been to 9 Doctors appointments! 9! I thought I was going to have a mental breakdown. Instead my body broke down. On Thursday I was getting Harper's car seat out and BAM.....my back went out. I couldn't move. Great one more Doctors appointment,  just what I needed. I was ordered by Dr. S to have 3 days of bed rest, except replace my bed with blanket on the hard floor. I have to say the hard surfaced helped my back, but not so good for the rest of my body. As much as I was suffering, Sir Scott had it way worse. He had to take care of Davy and me, poor guy. 
After a couple of days on the floor, Ollie confessed to me that he knew the reason why I broke my back. "Mom, I have been stepping on a lot of cracks.....A LOT of cracks."

I just love your blog... hope you're up and about soon - back problems are numero uno my least favorite thing to deal with. No fun!

AAwweeehhhh! He feels badly for his Mommy! I hope that you get better soon! And make sure that no boys wrestle on you... fun for them, but murder on the Mom's! Let them wrestle on DAD! Yeah, that'll do it!

NINE appointments?! Wow! I'm so sorry, that is insanely rough! I hope your back is feeling better! And that line is awesome, made me laugh right out loud!

Guilt, shame.. I feel it. I wish I had known!
Rewards in heaven will NOT suffice. (yawn)
We owe you dinner and babysitting!
Love love love and appreciate (beyond) you both.

Soooooo Funny!!!!

But the best is when I delivered a lunch for Ollie at his school today. All the office ladies wanted to know how you broke your back...he told them you couldn't bring him his lunch (that he forgot at home) because you broke your back last week.

I LOVE THAT KID!
