Doctor Timothy

Some of you have asked about Timothy's arm, so I will tell you "the story". Three weeks after the accident Timothy brought me his cast all in one piece and said, "I take it off mama, I don't wone it." HE TOOK HIS OWN CAST OFF! He was supposed to wear the thing for six weeks! I called the doctor's office and they said to be there the next day and to let him wear his ER splint till then. The receptionist could not believe what I was saying, she asked how old he was, when I said three, "WHAT!" she said. This was a Wednesday so we had church that night, while we were getting ready Tim said, " I take my cast to church mama, I make the boys smew it." He is his daddy's boy! So we go in the next day, ready to be re-casted and Tim was a little celebrity around the office, they all called him Doctor Timothy. He was so proud of himself. "How in the world did he get this cast off?" I told him the story and how he wanted to take it to church to give the boys a "smew". The doctor laughed, stuck out his hand to shake my hand, and said, " Mom, good luck for the next for the next 16 years!" He then turned to Timothy and said, " Buddy, if you want that cast off that bad, you can keep it off." Timothy got this cute little mischievous grin on his face. The doctor told me, " My official advice is to make him take it easy for the next few weeks," he then looked back at Tim and laughingly said, "but I don't think that's going to happen!"

OMG that's hilarious. I have a son like that (now 15). The only reason he didn't do exactly the same thing is because he hasn't ever had a cast. Yet.
