An eventful weekend... my little girl had a topple ... it was one of those 'I only turned my back for a moment' moments. Dunc saw her fall in slow motion. I was upstairs. A few tears then business as usual bustling around. But each time she steadied herself with her hands she had a little whimper - then her new morning word came 'sore' as she pointed to her wrist - so we thought it best to get it checked out. At emergency we thought we may be just overzealous parents .. Edie is working the room, smiles all 'round, waves. But the x-rays said otherwise - green stick fracture, three weeks in a cast. Dunc welled up - father's guilt - there will be days like this - a lifetime of wanting to coat her in cotton wool - save her from the disappointments and falls - broken wings do heal, parents' hearts just get bigger.
