All is quiet................

My children are all at school, and the house seems eerily quiet, do you think I'll ever get used to it???? I have so much I should be doing!! I have a pile of washing, ironing etc, all the usual boring housework stuff!!

So what has happened since I started my blog??

Michael came home with a note in his school book saying he had hurt himself at school yesterday, apparently he fell of a bike, he told us he banged his nose, and to be honest he does look slightly dark around the eyes and across the nose....but the next comment in his book also explained that, apparently he was sick a couple of times at lunch time, bringing back phlegm, which is usually a sign of a deterioration in his chest. School also said he wasn't himself, apparently he's not we'll have to keep an eye on that. Have suggested that they put his fluids down his tube, so if he's not taking it orally at least he's getting something!!

It was haircut day yesterday, never a pretty sight. Michael hates having his haircut, but it had got so long that it was just short of being long enough for hair bands, I dread haircuts, Michael screams and wails and fights, kicking and lashing out, then he starts vomitting...............he get's himself so worked up it is heartbreaking.........but it is one of those things that has to be done.

To be honest I don't know how else we can do it without him getting upset, we have tried everything that we can think of from bribery, to distraction, to cutting a little bit at a time, the hairdresser has sat in the sand-pit with him before now. We've tried using clippers, thinking that at least it would be longer between hair-cuts, but that was horrendous, would never do that again.

So the hairdresser just get's on with it. As soon as it's all done, the tears stop and he's fine. Which leaves us wondering what all the fuss was about!!!

But he had a bath and then we baked Bob the Builder cakes, which brought a smile to his face.

He's like this with G-Peg changes too, as soon as the Community Nurses walk through the door he's hysterical. Why do we put our kids through these things????
