Sometimes it’s just mega hard to be a single mom. Yesterday the ‘disaster-day’ started out with me suddenly falling ill with a fever, I barely could drag my groceries in the door without falling over. I then went to bed for an hour. I had just one hour to sleep it off because I had to get my kids out from daycare and school. When I woke up after that hour I could really not see how to get out of my bed on my bike in that hostile feeling cold windy and rainy outside world. I am so lucky I could call the person that takes care of my daughter and she picked up my son and brought them both to my doorstep. Thank god for you Mimi!!!!
In the evening the disaster day went forth when my daughter took a sip of detergent that’s put in a children’s they can blow bubbles with, (I have no idea how that’s called in English I’m sorry). I had to give her something greasy (butter in her milk) and call the doctor what to do next. Luckily she did not throw up so there was no risk for an chemical pneumonia, (until she would throw up that was). She slept well after that and the next day she was fine.
Today we went to a lovely Christmas dinner organized by the lovely Mimi and my friend who has three young children. The kids had a really nice time. When we came home, (me still feeling groggy from the fever night before), they had to off course unpack some of their gifts and one of them were these little starts we call them in the Netherlands, that you light with Christmas or new years eve. After i lit it one of the stars to show them how it looked, my son wanted to hold it after the burning was done. And in a blink of an eye he touched the upper part very briefly, it was still very hot! So he burned his finger. I could kick myself in the head for allowing him to hold it! Luckily there wasn’t any real damage to his skin besides redness, but off course it hurts soooo much. It took him about one hour and a half to calm down and fall asleep.
So now it’s my turn to go to bed. But first I needed to get this chain of unfortunate events off my chest...
....hope everything will be calm and peaceful tomorrow...
