This week’s word has to be crazy. Either I have been driven crazy by people and things around me, or my daughter has done crazy things.
It all kicked off on Monday morning when there was a gas leak and car crash nearby to where I live. To be honest I didn't know how I ought to get out of the village I live in and decided to follow the majority of cars. In hind sight I think I should have tried going in the opposite direction and not following like a sheep, but there we have it stuck for at least an hour more than necessary on the way to clinic!
When I arrived my little one was in a good mood having had a sleep in the car. She enjoyed playing with the toys and rearranging the little chairs. I wonder sometimes whether she knows the art of Feng Shui.
We were called by the various staff after an hour of sitting around and soon I was strapped up to measure my blood pressure looking down at my feet I saw my daughter with the black little pump in her hand! Fortunately she released her grip and the midwife took my blood pressure. Then it was up on the couch and the midwife found baby’s heartbeat straight away and smiled down at my daughter stood by her side.
When the doctor saw us she opened his desk drawer and lost her water bottle as we were about to head home! A quick search led to a very thirsty toddler being contented again.
On Wednesday crazy baby went to toddler group and kept escaping next door to play on the ride on toys and sat in the music box when everyone around her was singing and shaking their instruments.
We are hoping to go on our first family holiday to see my sister later this month but getting my daughter’s passport has proved challenging. Not only do they need to know that she is British, but me as her mum and my parents too! Hopefully we have all the necessary documentation in place to be sent off now.
Now with another Friday here – how did it come round again so quick?! You’d think that the craziness would have subsided right?! Oh no it was in the air with vengeance - I locked the car with the keys still in the ignition and my daughter on the other side asleep. Once we’d got in my toddler squawked all the way round the supermarket, while my medication that I’d gone in to get had been misplaced only to be found once I’d gone into the doctor’s surgery.
How did your week go?
