Toddler Fracture and Eating Strike!

We’ve been a little quiet over here lately because a few things have been going on that have taken all my attention, all of my energy and all of my brain cells (with none of any of those left for blogging).

Firstly my poor goblin suffered a minor tibia fracture from overzealous playtime at the childminders so has been in a cast for 2 weeks 😩😩😩

For a very active never-sit-still babe like my boy, this was rough. For the first day we snuggled a lot and he wouldn’t be put down for fear of putting weight on his leg.

Then his frustration at the restrictions grew until it was tantrum central. 

He wouldn’t walk in his cast for 5 days so everything was a bit of a challenge for both of us.

The same week he went on strike and wouldn’t eat. He didn’t want breakfast, only his soya milk. He barely ate his lunch at the childminders and every meal I cooked him or snack that wasn’t a babybel or breadstick was thrown on the floor.

The strike ended on Sunday and we are now enjoying mealtimes again so will have some new dishes to share soon.

Goblin is used to his cast now and can even run in it, much to my anxious dismay but we are going to the hospital to have it removed on Friday morning and hopefully he’ll be running around like usual by then! 

He’s 18 months old today. And my absolute pride and joy.
