So, I have been home 24 hours.
Momma is amazing and is (as I
hoped knew) whipping my children into shape. She brooks no crapulence* and the Tiny Tyrant doesn’t seem to have realised what has hit her!!!
(I’m not loving it at all oh no 😂🤣)
Things That Have Been Achieved:
- She has sorted out my house – and I am so grateful. It’s hard to see the wood from the trees with small people underfoot. It wasn’t a mess when she arrived, but there is now significant organisation!
- She has pushed the children’s respective bedtimes back by an hour – and they are not waking up earlier!!!!
- TT’s tantrums and attempts at manipulating Mommy-Nanny (her name for my mom) are mostly met with a raised eyebrow or a laugh – and the affront is hilarious
- #1 Son is eating new things! I cannot begin to describe the relief. Today as a “just got home from school” snack he ate three rounds of cheese spread and turkey ham sandwiches and then at dinner time ate: pasta (plain with some butter and grated cheese), cucumber, and chopped up frankfurters. Okay, he didn’t eat the carrot but we didn’t expect any so this is amazing!!! TT will eat regular food if she isn’t distracted, but this is such an amazing occurrence.
Basically, as my Mothership has seen it all before and hasn’t lived with them, (and therefore beyond the SEN concerns with #1 Son) doesn’t have my “tried it, it won’t work” fears, we are losing nothing by trying. And really its mostly TT – #1 Son is a good boy at heart and not a demon wearing human skin 😂🤣
Today I have managed to get up and have a little wander four times. The remaining post-surgical wall has been breached** and I have only taken two doses of Motrin and one of Percocet (and if it continues this well, I have hopes of not finishing my Percocet prescription.)
I learned a lot from my laparoscopies, and the main thing was DON’T BLOODY OVERDO IT
So, as yet I have picked up nothing heavier than my phone, the 3DS or the Switch. I have attempted to knit/crochet through the power of my mind, but sadly my powers of telekinesis remain dormant.
I also have only napped in two 1-hour stretches as I want to sleep at night!
I received this beautiful bouquet from my in laws today:
THANK YOU 😘😘😘😘😘
And my knitting group have banded together to bring me meals every so often over the next week or so – home cooked at that! Tonight’s was vegetarian lasagne and this confirmed carnivore thought it was delicious 👍🏻
*My Daddy coined that term in a phone call earlier this week 😂🤣
**This is my polite way of indicating I managed a #2

“Brooks no crapulence” 😂 that is too good!
We thought so 😂🤣👍🏻
I am not at all surprised about your gem of a mother. In fact, I bet anything that by the time she leaves, TT will be potty trained. Now you need to give her the car keys so that she can deal with the school run, and as soon as you are well enough you can take it over. Make sure you give her some time off whenever possible. And lend her the car if she wants to do a bit of exploring on her own. I think it is funny that she is “Mommy Nanny” and that I am “Nanny! Nanny! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!”
I know that flowers are flowers are flowers, but the photo on the website showed a multitude of small flowers in a rhapsody of reds, not a tiny number of enormous blooms. They think I am safely across the Atlantic and cannot complain, and they are right. And by the way, did the bouquet arrive with the get well card I had ordered? If you ever get ill again (heaven forbid!) I shall definitely use a different company. Out of loyalty to me, please take your business elsewhere yourself!
Continue to get better, and to update your lovely blog.
Any hope of Skyping this weekend?
This is wonderful I am so happy for you
