Twofer Tuesday

So at Celi's school, they have the children use a plastic drawstring bag to keep their library books in when they bring them to school. Don't ask me why - that's just how it is. Anyway, at the very beginning of the year, they all had to sign a piece of paper saying that they would keep up with their bag and if they didn't, they would have to pay a dollar to replace it. Well, Celi lost hers and when I found this out, I told Lawton that I thought she should have to use her own money. (Learning responsibility and all that, you know.) So yesterday, Lawt is getting a dollar out of her piggy bank to send for the new bag. She looks at him and asks what he's doing so he tells her that she is replacing her library bag with her piggy bank money. She looks at him and shrieks, "Get it out of YOUR wallet - that's MY money!!!" Not happy about spending "her" money AT ALL.

In more Celi related news, the poor thing broke her wrist and is a cast up to her armpit. The fracture is not horrible, but both bones have a crack in them so they have to keep her totally immobile for a while so the bones don't shift. She was NOT pleased about the cast situation at all but she rallied and chose a superior color combination for herself - pink and green stripes!!! Anyway, we go back at the end of the month to recheck it, so hopefully she can go to a short cast then. I'll keep you posted! Pics to follow...

I love the pink and green stripes choice!!! If you have to break your arm, then you should at least have a stylish cast!!
