Bugger me! Would you judge my children at this wedding?

The first is in a stookie with a broken ankle
The second is in a stookie with a broken arm
And the third fell out of a tree and broke their nose today

FFS. It's SIL's wedding on Saturday!

Oh my goodness!
Sounds to me like your children have freedom to be kids. I wouldn’t judge you or them.l

EyesOpenWide · 23/06/2019 19:54

I’d probably wonder whether they’d all been in a car accident or something.

Walkamileinmyshoesbeforeujudge · 23/06/2019 19:55

Ss be waiting for you at the church doors!!

Bringonspring · 23/06/2019 19:55

Totally would judge!

I take it, it’s just really bad luck right....see I’m judging you...!

Hope they get better

AccidentEmergencyLoyaltyCard · 23/06/2019 19:56

They've all been totally random events as well. The ankle was a mistimed jump off a climbing frame and then the arm was going head over handlebars on a bike.

I would find it an amusing coincidence (not funny they hurt themselves, but managing the three is close succession). Broken bones, cuts, bruises etc are part of childhood (and indeed life... I know two people who broke a toe this weekend, one 3, the other in their 50s)

Those pictures will be fun to look back on! Here’s the lovely bride.... and her nieces and nephews fresh from A&E....Grin

FelixFelicis6 · 23/06/2019 19:58

Well yes to be honest I probably would, not knowing you! Or think they’d all been in some joint accident.

bitchfromhell · 23/06/2019 19:59

I'd park my pram next to you and pretend my permanently bashed up baby was yours Grin

FadedRed · 23/06/2019 19:59

Is it too late to suggest a ‘TV themed wedding’? Your and your DH in scrubs, your children in pyjamas - you could go as the cast of ‘Casualty’. Or maybe not......
Just answer any questions about the children’s injuries by saying there is nothing wrong with them really, but you keep them in plaster casts just to slow them down a bit.

AccidentEmergencyLoyaltyCard · 23/06/2019 20:00

You should see them. Three ragamuffins. TBH the one with the nose is mostly annoyed that they don't have a stookie. The absolute shiner of a black eye doesn't quite measure up apparently Hmm

That's hilarious, you're family are going to be the talking point not the bride!

What is a stookie??

SupermassiveBlackHo · 23/06/2019 20:01

What in fresh hell is a "stookie"?

AccidentEmergencyLoyaltyCard · 23/06/2019 20:03

A stookie is a cast Grin

OhMsBeliever · 23/06/2019 20:03

I'd just be grateful it wasn't me in that situation.

Stookie is a word for plaster cast, not sure which part of the country it's from. It's just one of those things I learned on here.

CigarsofthePharoahs · 23/06/2019 20:05

My then 1 year old was invited by the local university to take part in a psychological study. Something to do with music recognition. He'd be filmed whilst they played different bits of music blah blah.
I forget the details, mostly because he did a massive face plant into our coffee table the day before and had a huge bruise on his forehead. Huge. Immortalised forever on film for a students PhD.
If I saw your family I'd assume they all got injured at the same time.

Changaroorooroo · 23/06/2019 20:06

Definitely no OI in your family? Sou D's like my household growing up!

SupermassiveBlackHo · 23/06/2019 20:12

Well I've never heard that before Grin

And no, I wouldn't judge!

Imaystillbedrunk · 23/06/2019 20:19

I wouldn't judge. You're going to have to be prepared to answer the same question over and over again

Furiosa · 23/06/2019 20:40

I still say stookie though I left Scotland twenty years ago!

My kids say "baffies" and "breeks" too.

No I don't think I'd judge you OP, you'd make me feel a hell of a lot better about my own kids who seem to alternate between them which one is held together with medical grade superglue. The rotation seems endless!

lastqueenofscotland · 23/06/2019 20:49

I’d probably assume they had been in a car accident tbh

Booboostwo · 23/06/2019 20:57

OI= Osteogenesis Imperfecta or brittle bone disease. You would know it if your DCs had OI.

Dippypippy1980 · 23/06/2019 21:31

To be honest my initial reaction would be poor mum - it will be a long summer😬😂.

Hope the kids aren’t to uncomfortable, aspen are back raising merry hell soon.
