Sara's foot fell asleep yesterday. She was so enamored with an episode of Curious George that she went a good 20 minutes without moving.
When she tried to stand up, she found it harder than anticipated as she had no feeling in her foot past her ankle.
She was terrified.
It was cute- don't judge me.
She started crying and poking at it, screaming about how her foot wasn't working.
She was certain it was broken and she needed a cast. This hypothesis was quite possibly drawn from the fact that the episode of Curious George she had just watched featured the little monkey with a broken leg and a cast.
I held her and told her it would feel better in a minute and had her wiggle her toes.
That's when the tingling started. It must have been a painful variety of tickling to her because she kept switching back and forth between laughing and crying.
It was a funny moment to witness my little girl's first sleepy apendage.
