And as it turns out, any crunches will do...
I'm still trying to catch up with housework, appointments, cooking, Christmas preparations, etc... as one of the grownups at the HennHouse is down for the count. Two weeks ago Tim broke four metatarsals (one of them shattered) and his big toe during a soccer game. Last week, he had surgery. The surgery was supposed to last 45 minutes. It lasted two hours and 15 minutes instead. He has a job that requires driving. Per doctor's orders, he isn't to drive for six weeks. Unfortunately he has already exhausted his sick leave due to Esther-Faith's hospitalization (and recovery) earlier this year.
It might be a light Christmas at the HennHouse.
As Esther-Faith watches her daddy use his crunches, she is much more willing to try her crunches. She watches him get up, and she tries it. She watches him navigate small spaces, and she is more confident in her ability to get where she needs to go.
In fact, when he first got his crunches, she insisted on showing him how to use them.
Even if having Tim down for the count is stressful, it may be worth it if she gains the confidence she needs to continue developing her crunch skills.
