Chicken Pox

We think Jack might have chicken pox. The last couple of weeks Jack has been a pain for his poor daddy. To be honest it's not something I've taken too seriously! Mark always says Jack's been a little monster and then he's a sweetie for me. But he has been off with me too. We'd put it down to Terrible Twos but now we're starting to rethink.

Last night he refused to eat his tea. Flat out refused. He often tries it on with his meals, but this was a tried and tested meal that he normally likes, and while he started out ok he soon got to the stage where every mouthfull was spat out and we had tears. So.... thinking that he was just trying it on we did what most people / parenting guides have suggested and took the food away saying there was to be no more until the next normal meal / snack time. It felt mean, like we were sending him to bed hungry. But he wanted to go to bed, and didn't want to eat so what can you do?

He slept for almost 14 hours! And when we brought him down he just picked at his breakfast choosing only to eat fruit and nothing else. Later in the morning during a nappy change we found some blister type spot things. They look a lot like chicken pox. He has a couple round his groin, one on his belly and one on his shoulder. His back is clear and it's deffinatly not a rash or anything more sinister. This afternoon his didn't want much lunch, again only really having a bit of fruit and some cheese. Then he slept for another 3 1/2 hours.

I went to get him up for some awake time and his dinner and he has bags under his eyes still. Wemade him one of his fav easty-to-eat meals: tinned ravioli, and he didn't have much of that. He found my bag of dates and munched a few of those and then had some milk.

He's still up at the moment, but he's clearly tired, and grouchy, so I think he'll be off to bed again before long. And I don't think I'll be far behind him. As it happens I'd booked him a doctors apointment for Tuesday because he's been holding and tugging on his ears and has a lot of wax in them, and I just wanted to have them checked out. It looks like it might all be linked in...

Poor wee man!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
