I am so, so grateful for Dr. Ponseti and his Ponseti clubfoot treatment. It means that Drake has a chance of full foot correction without a lifetime of scars, surgery, and pain. There is always a chance even with strict following of treatment protocol that there can be relapse. It’s something that I’m sure all clubfoot/talipes parents live in fear of.
But, oh, that sigh. The huge heave of chest and shoulders that the little dude gives as he gives up resistance, holds tight to bubble puppy or Jake the pirate, and says “ok, nite shoes, mommy.”
That sigh. So sorry baby boy.
Oh a happy note. His Gammy is treating us to a week at her timeshare in Orlando next month. Yesterday, we hit the Disney store for the first time. It made me so excited to see his reaction to the actual park. He was running around. Peter Pan! Bucky! Jake! Mickey Mouse! Plane! It was freaking adorable. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we will see you in 3 weeks! I’ll be there with Jake and Capt Hook. I’m the Pirate Princess, of course!
Looking at those princess dresses makes me super relieved to have a boy!
