Well it's been about 5 weeks with this cast and Gunner has about had it. Yesterday came up to me and said out of the blue, "Mom, want scissors!" And I calmly asked him, "Why do you need scissors?" His response, as he held his leg up high in the air, "Want cut it off!"
Since he's been walking on this big red boot for a while and, feels much better, he naturally wants to get it off. I guess I was just a little clueless (and nervous) to think he already knew what scissors are and what they can do!
After I told him that it has to stay on for a little while longer and explained that his bone isn't better yet, his response was "Not better yet. Almost done!" And then he limped away to play with his toys. This kid is so cute in every way and such a trooper with all he's been through! I'm loving the fact that he's beginning to understand more of what I'm explaining to him. It's fun to talk and reason with him. Well, most of the time...he is still a 2 year old!
