Lovely Bones?

My Spring Cleaning week was hampered slightly by a phone call from The Noise's school to say she had 'had a bad fall and was a bit shaken up' and would I come and collect her please.


A rather suspicious looking lump on her wrist meant that a trip to Casualty ensued, and a mere four and a half hours later she emerged with a wrist brace and an appointment for the Fracture Clinic the following day.


It turned out to be a hairline crack which didn't need a cast - she's just got to keep the brace on for three weeks. And no more football. Told you they should have all been boys.


It hasn't stopped her racing around like something on speed. It is her birthday on Monday, so today I have taken her and four of her friends to see 'Alice in Wonderland'. Just short of fifty pounds to get in, a whopping £25 for drinks and popcorn and another £20 for the minibus home.


And....they are all staying the night, so I have fed, watered and entertained them and they are now playing an extremely noisy game downstairs.


I would probably get a headache....... if I didn't already have one from two hours of wearing 3D glasses.

Happy Birthday to The Noise!

Believe me, a house full of boys for a sleep-over would have been a lot worse! Luckily boys don't tend to go in for sleep-overs so much - now house-wrecking and all-out warfare, that's another matter! :0)

Happy Birthday Miss Noise!

You really need a medal, Jackie, for the sleepover & sitting through all that 3D

Nuts in May

I, too, saw AiW with small girls on Saturday. Thoroughly enjoyed it despite the 3D premium. Hope the fracture is healing. I'm having a fortnight of feverishness with my two.

Very noble to do an outing and a sleepover, 'fraid I tend to allow one or the other. And only limited numbers after the memorable occasion when I stood in front of six girls in various stages of dress and make-up repeating in a stunned manner "It's 3 o'clock in the morning"...
Happy Birthday to the Noise. Hope she heals quickly.

The headaches pass and the broken bones heal and what stays behind are the happy memories that you are making for her. You are a good mom to take the long view.
She'll remember this birthday always....

And one day you will look back and ask when they all grew up.
