What are the chances....two broken bones in two days!

Today I thought that I was going to be telling you about heading to the beach for a few days of rest and relaxation with my family!

I had planned to share some older pictures of our favorite beach at Mooloolaba as a picture mosaic.

Instead I am sharing some pictures of a very sad metamorphosis that has occurred in my household.

Before:

Here is a picture that I posted last week on my other blog about all of us heading to the beach for our 
Easter vacation....doesn't it look relaxing!

After:

 Instead of going to the beach we are staying home because of this.....





Not one but TWO very sad people with broken bones!!!!!!

What are the chances of this occurring????

Can you believe that Master A fractured 2 bones including his Ulna on Friday night at Rugby practise and then Mr Attorney decided to re-live his childhood with a game of cricket and fell over and fractured his elbow....
  the very next day!

Look at my poor sad boys!

Dear little Master A has gone from this....
beach, broken bones, Natasha In Oz, Easter, Family life,


 to this....

Did I mention that he is on school holidays....for TWO WEEKS 

and

he cannot play football, play Mario-Cart on wii, or go swimming....for SIX WEEKS!!!

Oh well, at least my boys will have lots of spare time to help me do the Easter shopping and decorating....won't they love that!!

I sure do hope that the Easter bunny knows that we will be home this weekend and that he doesn't go to the beach to find us....I couldn't cope with even more sadness!

Best wishes for a wonderful Easter week,

  1. This is one for the books!! I hope they don't try arm wrestling with their two good ones...(Don't repeat that!)
    I'm sorry you'll miss the beach.

  3. Oh how sad !
    I'll bet YOU won't be on vacation since you will be "nursing" these poor babies.

  8. Oh no!! How terrible, Natasha. How will your hubby put on his new Rhodes & Beckett shirts????!!! You'll have to help him with his cuffs. Sorry, I shouldn't joke...I hope your two boys heal quickly. xxAnita

  9. Oh my oh my! Now that is yucky for sure! Sorry for all involved. Hope you can all find smiles in the midst of it...

  10. I guess this is a sad example of When it Rains, It Pours! What a shame that the timing coincided with your holiday plans. Hope everyone is feeling much better soon.

    Hope you find some way to salvage some fun out of the week.....

  11. Oh dear! My little gson broke a bone in his foot and is in a boot.
    His sister broke her arm the first day of summer vacation and had a cast the entire summer! It was very sad.
    I feel so sorry for your boys! Hope the Easter bunny finds them and cheers them up!

  12. Natasha, This is one for the books! What are the chances? He looks so sad and to be on break has to be tough for a 10 yr old boy! Lil Tony would find this very tough! Please let them know thoughts and prayers are sent their way!

  13. It is bad enough to have one whiney male in the house, I can't imagine what it would be like with two! I hope they have a speedy recovery for your sake, Natasha!

  14. Bless their hearts! I hope they both feel better soon. What are the odds?!

    I hope you'll drop by AtticMag and give JaneT some advice for her headboard to bench project.

  15. As a boy of broken bones and father of a boy of broken bones, the worst part is being out of school so you can't show it off. Best wishes to both the broken boys. I know they'll appreciate some TLC but not too much in public, if you get my meaning.

  16. Natasha, be careful dodging casts around there. Who would look after you? Tell them both that we are thinking about them and wishing them well. I guess they will be able to manage Easter candy with one hand.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have to guess that the odds are pretty slim that they could both brake bones in their right arms. Do you have a lottery there? I would rush out to buy a ticket or two if I were you. I hope your vacation takes a turn for the better.

  25. I can just imagine what the next 2 weeks will be for you and the boys.
    I really feel for you!
    Sometimes it seems life wants to trow us a curve for readons we will never know.
    Sending you good wishes for lots of patience.

  26. Oh poor guys. And you will be run ragged I'm sure. Good luck to all of you.

  27. Oh dear. I am sorry - and how miserable for your son. However, it is one of those ironic and strange situations you almost have to laugh at (at least I think it is) what are the chances? It is so pathetic you must laugh or little or you will certainly cry.

    I have a friend whose son broke his arm while trying to balance on a basketball on their hardwood floor when he was supposed to be going out the door for church.

    He just recently got his clean bill of health. He asks his Mom why so many people laugh when they find out how he broke his arm.

  28. Happy Easter to you also Natasha.
    Your poor boys! I hope the Easter Bunny treats them well. We know you are!
    Thanks for the visit. Off to check out sisters 365.

  29. Awww, that's horrible. My son broke his arm the first day of our vacation. Hope you have a wonderful Easter. Hey, I bet they use their arm as an excuse NOT to clean. (I would) :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. What are the chances, indeed! Hope your men-folk heal up soon, and that you'll soon be beach-bound...

    ReplyDelete
  31. So sorry for your son - what a pitiful (subject matter-wise) mosaic!

  32. Oh your poor boys! Ouch! I am so sorry, Natasha. I hope they feel better very soon....Christine

  33. Oh Dear Natasha, what an unfortunate sequence of events for the dear boy, and the precious man in your life! What a shame, especially during your holidays and that beach looks just so relaxing and inviting!!

    Take care my dear, I'll see you at 'Tuesday Tea For Two' whenever you are able; meanwhile, I hope you can get a little rest and joy out of life as best you all can!

    Cheers and better days ahead!

  34. Oh my gosh I'm so sorry! Poor guys!

    I know the feeling all to well. I broke my ankle Thanksgiving weekend and was out of commission for 2 1/2 months. I'm in physical therapy now and it's getting back to normal but it's been a long haul.

    I hope your boys heal quickly!

  41. Aw Natasha, so sorry they are both down for the count! "The best laid plans of mice and men...!"

    Sounds like it will bring you all much closer and keep things a little simpler..

  43. Poor Master A and Mr. A. You will have to sweeten their misery with lots and lots of choc.

    Well, they won't be playing rugby and cricket against New Zealand then. LOL

    Have a great Easter.

    We start our two weeks hols on Good Friday. We started our year later than you. I was on the Gold Coast when your school started.

  44. Oh poor them. Perhaps a special cake to cheer them up? You could call it the Recovery Cake.

  45. What a memory for the scrapbook! Woops, I mean, this is horrible. Broken/fractured arms are no fun and not really a memory one wants to be part of, BUT, I'm a srcap-aholic so I see the perfect scrap book pages for a life time of memories. Hope they are adapting.

    Thanks for stopping by my sweetromanticnotions. I so appriciate the visit. I want to answer your question on where do I get these wonderful cards. WOW! you name it and I'm there..All my valentines and post cards are true antiques. I own all 500+ that I have. Whew! yes, I have that many.
    I buy them at antique stores, ebay, paper shows and trade with members from the National Valentine Collectors Association, which I'm a member. Not one card is a reproduction or a posted image. Isnt that cool! My earliest card to date 1865. Oh my! Here I go..I always tend to go on when it comes to Valentines! So I will stop the novel as this is for 'Comments'. hahahaha..Thanks so much Natasha..I love all your blogs!

  46. What are the odds of that!? I am a believer that things happen for a reason, I guess you were not destined to be at the beach. I hope they both heal quickly and that your family has a wonderful Easter!

  47. Oh oh, sweet Natasha, I'm oh so sorry.. you've got me laughing out loud when looking at - and reading your first two pictures. I mean, the gorgeous seashore with the cute words ... going here for Easter break ... and then .... the second picture... Still smiling!! My oldest daughter asks, What is it, mummy? So now you've got the picture of me reading your lovely post, I want to wish you a merry happy happy Easter weekend with your family! xoxoxo And a wonderful April too !

  50. I assumed there must have been an accident involving both of them...not 2 separate events. How horrible to have to give up the beach for broken bones. I'm so sorry for all of you:(

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh Natasha,
    That is absolutely terrible! Two incidents in two days! And especially during holiday! What a total bummer! And that lovely beach was just waiting for you! So sorry, hope they both heal quickly! And that they don't drive you crazy in the process!!!
