the good and the bad

This last week brought two things I have waited 10 years to do. Ever since we started trying for children I have thought about doing these things. One was enjoyable and the other gave me a heart attack....

The good one was Rupi's preschool concert. Oh my. It was a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e. ADORABLE. 30 little people dressed up as angels or shepherds, attempting to sing. It was tuneless, half of them weren't singing and a couple were having tantrums. It was perfect in every way.




The bad was Blossom splitting open her chin and a visit to the emergency room. Yuck. They glued it shut which amazed me. So the scarring will be minimal apparently. The actual gluing was an experience- they wrapped her up like a mummy and two doctors, a nurse and me all held her down and did it. The noise was incredible, that girl can scream. She was just fine afterwards, I needed a stiff drink.



So I can cross two things off my pre kiddie list. Thanks God!

The highs and lows of parenting hey...I'd have been a wreck during the emergency room visit. Hope she is soon back to fighting fit! Love Rupi's costume, preschool concerts are so darn cute and funny all at the same time xx

Rupi is just so cute!! Our baby split her eyebrow a couple of years ago and I was amazed at how they glued it too - you can hardly notice the scar now!!
