But it looks super cool.
Even cooler now that she's drawn cats all over it.
I'll be honest, I was always jealous of kids with a cast in elementary school. I always secretly wanted to have the experience. Is that totally weird? I'm fine with having avoided it all, now, as an adult though, I'm not that crazy. :-)
I don't think you're alone in that, Jenn! I've never broken a bone either, and always thought it looked kind of cool to have a cast. From what I'm seeing with B, it's only fun for the first little bit. The extra attention is nice, and when your parents ask you to do stuff, you can pout and point at your arm. Then you realise what a pain it is to have to put your arm in a plastic bag to have a bath, and that you can't ride your scooter or play on the playground equipment, and you can't wait for it to be over.
