Typical man.

So on Sunday afternoon my 17 month old son, Jacob, fell on the playground and twisted his ankle. Since then, homeboy refuses to walk. Nevermind the fact that it's not swollen, not bruised, and when he doesn't realize it, he can put all of his weight on it without a problem. AGH! How do I break through this psychological barrier so he can realize that he can, indeed, WALK?! Frustration.
On a brighter note, this week I begin submitting "Sally Circle." More on that later...

Hm...good thing I am so not your typical man.

Ha! I hate to tell you, but my daughter does that too. She sometimes forgets which foot is supposed to be hurt and limps on the wrong one.

LOL about your daughter!

and Jonathon, I totally love that you aren't a "typical man"

My son did this, too. Basically, you have to ignore the behavior and keep offering enticing things to do that will coax him to walk. Do not mention the leg. Ever. Or you will make him relapse. Hope that helps!
