What you do when a 3 year old boy sprains his ankle….

Gosh it seems like ages since I have been on here and for this I apologise!  H has decided to fall of his bike, now there were no tears as he knew he was going to be in BIG trouble for trying to corner around a plastic cone at formula one speed (what is it with these boys!!) he looked at me and waited for a response, the response he knew he was going to get and was sent inside, at that time looking sad but no mention of an injury.  The very next day he was limping and limping quite badly, limping to the point where we had to go to casualty, bear in mind this was casualty on a BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY…….

5 hours later, X Ray done and there were no broken bones, just a request that we return in a week if he was still limping.

A week later we were back, H was still limping.  After exhaustive tests the decision is he has sprained his ankle, this necessitating a 3-4 week rest from cycling, jumping and leaping off the back of sofas!

So the question is how does anybody stop a 3 year old boy from jumping and leaping off the back of sofas ALL the time??  Any ideas?  At the moment I am failing on this quest, he obviously has a very high pain threshold in relation to a sprained ankle, if he sees the most miniscule mark on his body this normally results in being close to death and the administration of a Peppa Pig plaster but a sprained ankle apparently no problem……

Anybody got any great ideas?
