Oh no, you reminded me birthdays are coming up! Ive got Valentino forst on the 7th then Sasha on the 30th, Aug 23 is Leo then Raf 7 Sep...and then DH and my 10th wed. ann.the next week and the week after is my birthday!!!
I think this is more of a diary entry but here it is anyway...
Here is an update on us since I never have time to keep up with everyone!
(Definatelly no time to read everything since I last visited!
We have been busy with 4 boys as it must be expected.
The two older ones; Sasha and Valentino are in school and playing soccer.
Raffael only has 1 day in pre-school and Leo -thank God- has no teeth yet and is not crawling! (sounds terrible but the longer it can be delayed this month the better-it will be any moment though-for both!)
We had a shocking month this June.
Looked like another busy month of parties, soccer, playdays and got myself organised so that the 2 school boys had eye & hearing tests organised (new 4 yr testing-so booked 6 yrs old too) and also our annual dentist appointment for them and me booked for end of 3rd week.
It all started Sunday 31st May:
Raf fell off my bed; trying to get to Leo's cot while watching kids videos and landed on the floor with his left arm in the cot bars.
Result: after sitting in emergency for half a day - very sore arm; possible fracture/dislocation, lots of x-rays and a trigger thumb later, we are still in and out of Dr.s offices!
June 2nd - Sash and Valya got eye tests.
They are slightly longsited, could use help from glasses, I was told.
Friday 5th- Valentino slipped on our wooden floor (socks on) and fell back straight on his head; had a fit, eyes rolling back, after what seemed a long time to DH, he stopped and was then sleepy, confused etc...which is when I rushed in after hearing DH repeatedlly telling him not to sleep, wake up etc. I'm glad I didn't see him having a fit!
We rushed to the emergency and after 4 hrs and some x-rays were back home again!
Raf specialist Dr that afternoon.
Thursday & Friday -More Drs visits for bad colds that Raf & Leo got & Valentino app.
Just getting better but a busy week with school stuff etc.
Thursday 18 - Almost 2 weeks after Valentinos fall, Im just about to feed Leo and get out the door to pick up Sasha & Valentino early to get to our dental appointment and...
The phone rings, its their school...
Valentino fell of the monkey bars he might have broken his arm and is looking very pale and wont talk.
Back to emergency (where they recognised him!) more x-rays , arm in cast...no soccer! (he LOVES soccer).
(He has to see orthopaedic specialist tomorrow ;Raf is going next week for thumb).
This week couldnt get worse, till Leo got sick again after visiting one of the Dr surgeries(he was almost back to normal). He has been very congested and has a bad cough (worse than before) and if he gets worse tonight I am sending DH to the Dr! Im sure they must think I am a hypochondriac or maybe I might get a visit from DOCS with all these breaks!
Speaking of which, Raf bumped his nose (Sunday)on the corner of the kitchen island bench and now its bruised and swollen!
He is my clumsy one. I dont know how many times he has bumped his teeth and they have bled...none of the others ever did that. Maybe its the way he walks or just the fact he is a very active boy. I wonder what Leo will be like.
Sorry to waffle on and on....I love the boys but they worry me when these things happen, although I must admit we have had a very good run of no breaks/bumps till this month for any of them. 2 years ago within 4 months of each other #1 and #2 had surgery but it was for appendicitis (Sasha-then 4) and hernia (Valya-2).
Less than a week to go and I still have Orth. Specialist app. for Valya, kindy play day, Yr2 dinner, wedding, and Raf's Orth. Specialist app.!
I feel like I'm running a business with all these appointments!!!
Anyway, if anything else happens this month I will be a nervous wreck!
