Last week what started out as an Ouch for Reuben turned into an Oh No. After falling on his arm it would seem he has a Greenstick Fracture. This, simply put, is a fracture, but because the bones are so young they are still partially fused so it’s not a clean crack all the way through. He’s doing very well, and is very brave (and slightly pre-teen non-plussed) about it. We are huge fans of Charlie and Lola in our house, and the story Charlie is Broken was whipped out straight away. Charlie even managed to break the same arm!
“Charlie isn’t Charlie anymore. He is broken. And when you are broken, you have to be very extremely careful”
