I finally convinced Payton to let me at her cast. I have been offering to paint flowers on it or something since she got the cast but she refused. One day a friend of mine was trying to get her to let her put rhinestones on it. Payton matter-of-factly turned to her and said..."no, my mom is going to paint it!" So that night, Ryan got home from work and she promptly ran to him and yelled..."Daddy! Mommy is going to paint my cast!" Before she could change her mind, I was up the stairs and digging through paint to find just the right color. I love how it turned out and she is quite fond of it as well.
Payton is scheduled to get her cast off on Aug 6th. She is adamant that she does not want the cast to come off. I tell her that she will grow too big and the cast will keep her arm from growing and she explains to me that she will just stop growing then. I ask her why she does not want it off and she cries...."I love it! It is cute!" I guess I may have done too good of job painting it.
