My Princess Chose Blue?

Through all of this broken arm business, I tried to look at the bright side. I thought to myself, "at least we can get a princessy pink cast and make the most of this." Boy was I mistaken. Payton had originally wanted a red cast but I deviously told her they were out of red because I knew pink would be her second choice. My evil plan was working until the nurse broke the news to me that they were all out of pink. I wanted to punch her in the face....how could they be out of pink. So I swallowed hard and thought "well purple is a pretty good princess color too!" So I talked Payton into purple and the casting began. She was holding really still and not crying a whole lot until they started wrapping her arm in purple.

Payton screamed."I don't want purple!"

The doctor said, "you don't want purple? How about blue instead?"

I looked at him with eyes that said "are you insane!"

Payton laughed and said "Ya, blue!"

I told the doctor "NO! Just put on the purple!"

He threw the purple away and said, "it is okay, we can do blue!"

No, it is not okay. It is not okay at all. I wanted purple! I wanted to cry at the thought of my little princess in a blue cast. I was heartbroken. : ) I later asked Payton why she picked blue and she said "because it is Kutter's favorite color!" Oh, now isn't that the cutest thing ever. I had to hold back tears on that one. So now, although I would have still loved the princessy pink, I am okay with the blue. I am, however, considering the suggestions given to have her blue cast bedazzled. A little bling couldn't hurt, right?

That is too cute! How thoughtful of her to pick a blue cast just for Kutter. In the awful event that Kutter ever has to wear a cast, maybe he'll choose pink for Payton! Now that would be something to cry over!

Ha ha ha!! The thought of Kutter in a pink cast is too funny.. Good one Megan!
Payton looks so cute in that huge cast! I love that she picked blue because Kutter likes it. She is such a sweetie!
I agree with what Bridgette said, I hope the weight of the cast doesn't make her tip over. She is just so tiny!

I am so proud of that little lady. It is so cute that they are so close. I hope Wyatt gets a little sister as thoughtful as PayPay someday. And even though it might bring you tears, I kind of hope that Kutter gets a pink case some day! haha!

Oh my gosh! What a thoughtful, sweet little girl. Blue will just never be the same again.

I love that internally you were fighting against her getting a blue cast. Ha! Ha! Sounds like something I would totally do. That is so sweet she thought of Kutter (love that name by the way). Sometimes kids will surprise you.

That is such a cute story. I am so sorry she broke her arm. I would've been just like you... hoping for the pink cast. That is so stinkin' funny. I really laughed feeling your pain.

Tif,
Don't think I'm a stalker. It's not my fault you have a link on Cheryl's blog and now I have read all the Chronicles of the Wright family. You are such a cool girl, by the way. I just wanted to chime in and say that I happen to have a bedazzler, if you would like to borrow it :)
