Gus Man goes to nursery on Sundays for an hour. I leave them with a bottle in case the Earth begins to shatter and the volunteers want to bury him alive.
His first time in, I made a very big point of telling the sweet Gramma in charge that he was a spitter if not burped repeatedly. “I would just hate it,” I explained, “if he ruined your beautiful sweater.” He probably won’t sleep, he’s just been changed, he may cry but just bounce him hard and he’ll survive. And don’t forget to burp him. Lots. Seriously.
She smiled and sent me on my way.
When I returned an hour later, she rushed the desk like a linebacker and yelled, “He has a cast! A cast! All the way up to his hip!”
Oh, yeah. And he has a cast. I may have forgotten to mention that.
Gideon’s cast comes off Wednesday morning. I bought him socks to celebrate.
