And Moo is rather pissed off about it!
So there I was, at work. Everything was taken from my desk. I rang IT support and while talking to DH I was chatting to him on IM. That feral mum from school bugging me to use the phone while her snotty nosed kid was wiping her boogers on my nighty. DH was telling me not to tell anyone but my desk was cleared cause I got the job as a nurse in Maternity at the hospital.
‘Wake up Mum. It’s 7 o’clock’
My eyes flew open. SEVEN O’CLOCK!! My alarm didn’t go off!
I flew out of bed and looked at Too. Her eyes were hanging out of her head. Dark circles surrounded her enormous blue eyes.
‘What’s wrong babe?’ I enquired as I threw on some clothes. We need to be dressed and out of the house at 7.55.
‘Boo woke up at 1am. I sat with him cause I know how tired you are’
My heart melted.
‘He went back to sleep at 5.30. Sorry, I fell asleep so I didn’t wake you earlier’
Isn’t she just the best kid you have EVER seen!
What makes it even more betterer is she is in pain. Not better cause she is in pain, I am not that bad a mother, but she thought of me.
She has dermatitis on her feet. They are bleeding it is so bad at the moment. Because of that she is favouring one foot. Because of that she has hurt her ankle. Because of her ankle weakness, yesterday while doing sport she hurt her hip. So her whole lower body is ‘caning’ but she still stayed up all night with her brother because she knew her Mummy was tired.
Oh, Too, you are a super star!
So she is home today. She is not impressed cause she loves school (yeah! I know! A 14 yr old that loves school!) but she is hobbling around the place and I can’t stop smiling and hugging her.
And Moo is pissed off cause SHE wants to be the ‘golden child’. It is her birthday on Friday, and she is trying to score extra points cause apparently that equals extra presents……
