"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Word-full Wednesday- real men

Real men wear pink!  When Cody first broke his arm, he told me he was getting a pink cast and then he chickened out.  We made a visit to the Dr on Monday and he had to get another cast.....One can hardly chicken out a second time, especially when the mom is with!  The gal replacing the cast said: "Really!  Pink?  Are you sure?"  So I explained that he had chickened last time and he had to prove that he was man enough for pink!  I said real men wear pink!  He has a pink tie he wears most Sundays.  She said real men also wear purple.....  He has 3 more weeks in this cast.
Broken arms and casts don't seem to have slowed him down much!
Will his dad be a little stressed when he sees these shots, yes!

For more word-full Wednesday visit the circus!

I agree! Real men wear pink. My 12 year old wanted a pink cast last year when he broke his arm. I was totally fine with it.

UuuGGG! I would be freaking out though at seeing him on the skateboard. :)
