This episode involves Son no 2:
We were booked on a trip to Mauritius and I did my last bit of shopping the afternoon before we left. I had 3 kids in tow and was about 6 months pregnant with son no 4.
Son no 1, 2 and 3 made the usual dash for the car at the shopping centre and I am not sure who’s exact fault it was, but the car door was slammed shut on son no 2’s foot. So off to the doctor, emergency room etc we go…..
Son no 2 had broken his big toe. This of course put a bit of a damper on our trip to Mauritius.
Son no 2 was now on crutches – thankfully the doctor did not find it necessary to put a cast on his foot. This complicated things a little at the airport. As the plane was parked away from the terminal, they had to make special arrangements for a handicapped access lift to get him onto the plane.
He spent 3 days on crutches in Mauritius complaining about not being able to swim and join in the fun and his foot miraculously got better very quickly after that – must have been all the fresh air!
He spent the rest of the time running around like nothing had happened.
