Quinn has grommets in his ears and that explains the hat and the string coming down he he he I swear he looks like a girl with it on he he he too cute a face I reckon. He was having a ball and couldn't stop smiling the whole time.
Went to The Base afterwards to send some mail and then I had a cellphone call from the school saying that Corbin had hurt his hand at cricket and that she had put a cold press on it and sent him back to school but he came back 10 minutes later saying it was soooo sore so she called me and got an appointment to go to take him to the doctor. So I got there and he didn't seem happy but as the secretary said it hasn't come up in a bruise or swollen so she was wondering if maybe he had broken something.
Said to Corbin lets go and get your bag and when he went in to get his bag he lifted it with his hand (that was sore) hmmmm both the teacher and I looked at him. I quietly went to him and said that he picked up his bag with his sore hand and he said it was sore... so I talked to the teacher and said it is only an hour till the doctors appointment and if there is nothing wrong I will bring him home. The only reason I did that was because he has NEVER had a day off school sick and with all we have been doing in the last couple of weeks I think maybe a little time with me might be something he wanted.
We came home and I had a word with him and said that it costs to go to the doctor and that is a christmas present that I couldn't buy and that if he wasn't sore then it would be nice for him to tell me. He said it was really sore and so we had a deal that we would stay home till 12 and then if it was better he would go back to school... we had a huge talk and it was nice.
I thanked him for making me breakfast this morning... OMG I got up and there was a coffee and 2 toast with avocado sitting there waiting for me and he had made his and Quinn's lunches and was sooo proud. So while he was home I said to him that I was really proud of him for making me breakfast etc today and he said "Mum you always do so much for us and always there for me and I wanted to do something nice" I said thank you and my heart sank thinking what a wonderful boy I have.
Needless to say I took him back to school and he was fine.
Spent the afternoon at home reading some magazines... it was a non day... just felt grotty all day and wanted as I said before carbs all day... I should have not listened to that but nope nope nope I didn't... that is life aye.
