Mr. Bump

Check this out. Mothers of boys are probably used to this size bump but it was a first for me and it was quite a shock - especially as it swelled to this size in about a minute. Thought head was going to explode. My poor wee pumpkin.

I didn't see it actually happen as was too busy trying not to barf while making dinner. The bun doesn't seem to like meal preparation already. Think is going to be a long nine months. Shou fell and hit his head on the corner of his little table that we pull out for mealtimes. At two and a half (nearly) he wouldn't let us put ice on it, frozen peas, a cold towel or even one of the sticky temperature cool pads. It seemed to have gone down considerably in the hour after it happened and he went to bed very quickly at half seven - almost too quickly. Will have to check on him ever few hours to make sure no signs of spinal fluid leaking into brain and out through nose. Blame that on today's Gray's Anatomy re-run.

I was able to put Shou's carseat on the bus - just. Was a tight squeeze but think Shou preferred going on the big bus with all the teachers and kiddies as opposed to mummies car. They saw the airplanes, had their lunch and were back in Kunimi at two. I thought I could spend day sleeping with Marina but she wasn't having a bar of it. She too went to sleep very quickly. Long may it last.

Granny K has gone out on the lash with her pottery vestling clones. Obviously, she isn't going to be chucking back tequillas. Half a beer and she's anyones. She came in when Shou hit his head and told hub first to ice it and then to put warm towel on it and then to rub gel in it. It has become apparent that we will all start losing it and making random crap bollocks comments when we hit seventy.

I think I am due another early night.

Yikes - that's some egg! My hubby would have panicked and called an ambulance (like he did the day he woke up with a crick in his neck)...

Hope he feels better in the morning!
