outfit of the day(bird): broken?





dress ~ F21, gift
boots ~ 6pm.com
socks ~ Kohls
earrings ~ gift

as i type this, i am *very* impatiently waiting on a call from chris. i got an unexpected call from the school nurse, telling me that she thought henry may have broken his collarbone during recess. and being the mom...the mom who wants to be there for everything in my kids' lives, i was heartbroken that i could not leave work to take him to urgent care. of course chris is the best dad anyone could hope to have, and i know that probably he was a better choice to go with henry (calm and collected versus possibly crying at the doctor's office)...but i still hate not being there. i feel almost guilty, even though i know i shouldn't. i did talk to henry and he seemed ok, albeit scared.

so now i am waiting, i have checked my phone about 100 times in the last 30 minutes, and i have cried a few times at my desk. i am holding it in my head that henry seemed fine when i talked to him, and even told me he wasn't in much pain (shock speaking). oddly enough, it was him who suggested to the nurse that he may have broken his collarbone (doogie howser??). i hope for his sake that he was wrong...

...and now i am home, and sitting with my son and his broken collarbone. and his dumb sling, and his once every six hours tylenol, and his looming many other doctor's appointments, and his next two months in which he will need help with every single thing he does. i just want to hug him tightly, but i can't. i am no longer impatiently waiting, now i'm sad. and mad. and still impatient for him to be better.

xo,
megan bird

  1. What a terrible shock! It seems we Moms can't help but feel guilty at times but you really did the best thing and I hope Henry is feeling finer than a frog hair split four ways soon. (And that you are too.)

    Shon,xo

  6. Oh no!! I saw on FB that you were hoping he felt better soon and I was like, what happened? Poor guy, I hope it heals quickly and the next two months fly by with that sling. Load up on lots of movies!

  7. Oh Megan I am so sorry! My daughter got eleven stitches earlier this year when she was at her dad's. We don't get along nor do we talk so I had to wait until my parenting time to see her again. It was a long wait and I felt the same way. Luckily, kids are resilient and hopefully he is back to himself in no time!

  10. How terrible, the feeling of helplessness of being trapped at work when I loved one is in need is horrible. Hope he recovered quickly!

  23. Oh no! That's a rotten thing to happen. My Mum always told me that she wanted to feel our pain for us (she still does and I'm 37!) I think she probably felt more pain emotionally than we ever felt physically. I hope Henry is okay and has a speedy recovery. Kids are so tough, I'm sure you'll get though just fine.
    Sending best wishes to you

  25. So sorry! What a bummer. One of my daughters is a complete daredevil and I am always worried that she is going to break a bone. Hope your little one gets better soon!
    PS- Love the socks/boots combo!

  26. Oh my gosh, hoping he has a speedy recovery and that the pain didn't kick in after the shock wore off!

  27. I am so sorry! What an awful feeling, although like you, my husband is definitely the calmer parent. As a mom, I know countless times when Sean has been sick or hurt that I would willing endure 100X worse just for him to be okay. Speedy recovery wishes to Henry!

  28. Poor Henry. I hope his recovery is going well!

  29. So sorry for your son, but as the mom of two boys...broken bones are just a part of life!
    I am in love with your outfit here, especially how you incorporated the boot socks

  34. Megan!!! Just saw his xray on instagram. So so sorry for your sweet Henry's break. I know you were heart broken when you couldn't be at school. I pictured you at work trying to calm yourself. I don't know how much better a mom you could be...you are so attentive and loving toward your kiddos. Wishing you all well. Love this look on you sexy woman
