No More Monkeys...

How does the story go again?

1 little monkey jumping on the bed... he fell off and broke his head. Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!" 

You would think that one little monkey in my house would know this story very well! However, it turns out that when this certain little monkey is influenced by an older monkey* (or so he says), the little monkey WILL jump on the bed, and he WILL fall off and bump his...

Foot.

And he will cry and cry, and it will swell a bit and he will limp around like a pitiful little monkey. Aww! And the mama monkey (who is not very sympathetic towards the monkey who jumped on the bed after many warnings not to do so) will take the little monkey to the doctor who will take an x-ray of the foot and tell them, "Whew! It's not broken, but he does have a bad sprain."

And the little monkey will get a sticker and some Motrin and a whole day off school for a little TLC.

In the meantime, the mama monkey, the daddy monkey and the doctor monkey hmm maybe I shouldn't call a doctor I don't know very well a monkey! all told the little monkey...

NO more monkeys jumping on the bed!!! 

And they lived happily ever after. 

The End.

*The names of all monkeys in this story are being withheld to protect the guilty innocent. ;)

That bad thing is...once he's feeling better...he'll probably do the same thing all over again. Aaron fell off a chair and broke his arm! Did that stop him from climbing all over chairs? No!
No matter what happens in life, the Lord is always there! Praying!
Habakkuk 3:17-19 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places...

Praying right now!
Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

Oooh and sprains actually can be worse than breaks. Ouch, this mama wouldn't be too sympathetic either though ;).
