Daddy: Dad, Connor lost the privelege of watching a show before bed tonight.
Dad: What did he do?
Daddy: He got my shirt wet during bath time by throwing a wet ball at me.
Connor: But, Dad! But, Dad!
Dad: Yes, Connor?
Connor: Daddy started it!

The hospital experience had a lot to be desired and he went through a lot yesterday. He got to pick what he wanted for dinner last night because he wasn't able to eat anything all day before the procedure. He chose Chips Ahoy, french toast, and chocolate ice cream and enjoyed every bite!
Connor will have the cast on for 3 weeks before he might be able to get a shorter, below-the-elbow cast. All in all, he will have a cast of some sort for at least six weeks. So it looks like we will be changing the venue for his birthday party to something other than the splash park and it will make things interesting on our cruise in July!
He was still in pain last night, but is on some good pain relievers. He stayed home from school today and got really good with having the cast on and starting to use his left hand for things. He was really brave yesterday and we are really proud of him. We know that you would be too!

Connor: May I get down please, Daddy?
Dad: Don't forget to take your plates over to the sink, please!
Connor (said under his breath after taking his plate to the sink): I don't know why I have to do all this stuff!

Today Connor and Dad spent a few minutes on the beach (it's kinda cold out there now) and yesterday we all went to the Emerald Isle, NC Christmas parade!

Connor was excited to go see Santa, but once at the mall he said that he didn't want to sit on his lap. We stood in line to wait anyways - apparently Santa work before 12 noon. Thankfully Santa was a pro! He asked Connor for a High Five which broke the ice and then asked him about his little brother.
We were too busy getting set up for the picture that we couldn't hear what he asked Santa for Christmas, but most recently he's been saying "anything." Previously, he was asking for a piano and a "see-saw castle." Whatever that is! Does anyone know what a "see saw castle" is? If so, Santa would love to know!

Some randon conversations heard during the day:
Connor: **sounds of repetitive hiccups**
Connor: Uh, oh!
Dad: What's wrong, Connor?
Connor: I'm hicking up!
Daddy: Connor, you are all over the place! Do you have ants in your pants?
Connor: No, just pockets.

Making turkey cupcakes was one of Connor's favorite things last week. When they were done and all lined up above he said, "they are at a show - it's a turkey show! They are on a turkey field trip!" (Last week Connor's class took a field trip to see a show called "Miss Nelson is Missing.")
Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful friends and family!

Last night during bath time, Connor actually took a shower. It's his latest thing. First he didn't want bubbles in his bath anymore and now he prefers to take showers. What a big boy, right? Well during his shower last night he slipped and banged his chin on the metal frame to the shower door. He ended up with two gashes on this chin and Dad took him to the ER around 8pm. Daddy stayed at home with Marcus.
Connor was so brave and after the initial incident didn't shed another tear - even while he was getting the 6 stitches in his chin! Only one gash required stitches, the other was brought together by the strip things. He got to choose black stitches or blue stitches and he choose the blue. The best part of the night was when Connor got a green popsicle at the end of the visit. We got home at midnight to tell Daddy of the adventure.
Here's a picture of Connor waiting for the doctor!
Needless to say, Connor slept late this morning and we had to wake him up in time to go to our weekly appointment for Marcus at Children's Hospital, which went very well.
So we're very much over talking to nurses, seeing doctors, the co-pays, and anything medical-related. All four of us are going to take much needed naps now.
Have a great weekend!
