Amelia's 8th Birthday

Tomorrow my little girl is turning 8 years old.
Amelia Grace Nicholds was born at 10:03pm on Wednesday 4th June 2003.

Today 4 beautiful people came to my house (or should I say pushed their way in ?!) with decorations, party food and a helping hand.
In the final hours it was 2 very pregnant women on chairs hanging streamers from my ceiling to create a fairy / mermaid wonderland in one room and a disco in the other.
Our house is barely recognisable this evening (and Scott trying to watch TV in the disco room was funny!).

Tonight 3 more beautiful people came to scan about 200 photo's for a DVD on June 11th.

Now I must go and finish mopping and cleaning bathrooms in preparation for a memorable day with my family tomorrow before the party starts and the dancing begins.

Very Fragile

Feeling very fragile and breakable at the moment.
Maybe it is just today but I am extremely overwhelmed about everything Amelia's Project.
I do not think it helps that I have the busiest week ever in my life next week.
I also have 2 very needy and clingy children at the moment.
Amelia cries whenever I need to go out somewhere.
And there are about 8 different people looking after my children over the course of next week.
I need to take a deep breath, step back and not give a shit about anyone or anything besides my family for the next 2 days I think.

I apologise but I have people stressing from all different angles at the moment and I cannot handle that at this point in my life.

Goodbye till Friday xxx

Tom - Hospital

Well our weekend has ended up differently than it started!

Tonight while I was on the phone to mum I heard a THUMP from the front loungeroom and then Tom screaming hysterically.
Tom only cries like that when he is really hurt.
He came into the kitchen and I hugged him.
He explained that he was looking at the new cushions on the couch, rolled off and hit the coffee table (curved edge).
Because of the sound of the collision I suggested that he have some Nurofen before the headache set in.
While he was drinking it I noticed that he had blood on his face.
Then I noticed blood on his t-shirt ....and all around his neck.
My reaction I cannot remember but both kids were hysterical within seconds.
Then Tom started vomiting everywhere.
I rang my neighbours, Mardi and Jason.
Jason came and got Amelia who was extremely upset and Mardi drove us to the Hospital.

Tom went back to his normal happy self in the waiting room. Telling strangers about himself and asking questions of them.

When we went in to see a doctor, people kept coming to see the child who wouldn't stop talking and asking questions.

Then we were taken into a private room and Tom had the "magic gas" while he received an anesthetic and 4 stitches to the back of the head.
The gash was HUGE !!

Ten minutes we walked out of there with Tom talking non stop.

When we got home Amelia was still quite traumatised by this evenings events.
She needed lots of cuddles and reassuring that Tom is fine.

WOW.....glad tomorrow is a new day !!!!!!!
