Christmas and Other Thing’s Taking it’s Toll

This morning was the 2nd morning on a trot that we have gotten up and the feeder pipe to the central heating has been frozen, yesterday it did de-frost mid morning, but with today’s forecast I cannot see it de-frosting today.

I let Munch have a lay in as he was sound asleep and was not sure if school was going to be open, at 8.10 got a text to say it was definitely open so went and woke Munch up, bless him he was sound asleep and woke up a bit like he did not know what was happening, he lingered in bed for a bit before coming down, a bit teary and in one of his contrary moods, oh dear though I, here we go again, he was moaning he did not have time to eat his toast, making his load crying noises, he hit himself on the forehead with the chocolate side of his toast so he had a big chocolate patch on his head, kept saying we were going to be late, I explained once that we were not and that it was up to him if he ate his toast or not as he was the only one who would be hungry, nobody else, and left him to it and went and got dressed.

By the time I had come down stairs, his mood had completely changed he was happy, giggly and just a joy to be with, breakfast was ate, medicine taken well, TEETH, brushed beautifully!!! Dressed and we were out trying to de-frost the car, it was so cold the de-icer was not working well, when I finally got in the car the temperature was reading -6.

We got to school a few minutes late along with most other people I think, realised in the haste to get out I had forgotten Munch’s dinner money, never mind, I told them and said I would bring I when I picked him up.

Daddy picked Munch up from school, and from the moment he got in he was full on,  I think with the excitement of Christmas only being day’s away and also with all that must be going around in his little head, it is not making for a good place for him at the moment. We had a little while on the computer, then we wrote his Christmas cards for school tomorrow. All the time though, he has attitude, he was sent to sit on the step once, but he was very lucky it was only once.

As daddy was no working tonight I did Munch’s dinner, we all then had a game of Junior Monopoly, Munch was finding it hard tonight and had reverted to crying and not being able to accept some of the rules, all again I am sure because of the uncertainty he must be feeling at the moment, we just supported him and talked him through it and he became a little calmer and played nicely.

We are making sure that we talk as much as we can about things in the future, but still when you are only 7, goodness know’s what must be going through his poor little mind.

After the game had finished Munch had 1/2 hour TV before supper and bed, he is looking shattered, his cough is really beginning to take its toll on him, he was coughing much more today to the point of being sick again. What is on his chest is obviously starting to loosen up, hence his cough getting worse before it gets better.

Once he was in bed and had his story, snuggle time and cream today, me and hubby ordered a Chinese, just as we were tucking in a little voice called down, “save me some please”.

17/12 – Lets try and Wind Mummy Up!

This morning when I went into Munch’s room, the light was on, he was in bed making out to be asleep but he had a huge grin on his face. I played along and pretended to wake him up, I said I was going down to put on his toast, he said he wanted a lay in, so downstairs I went and put on his toast. Munch called downstairs to say he only wanted one piece, so I just did him one piece, when he came down he said he didn’t wan any breakfast, I could just see by the look on his face what sort of mood he was in and I was not playing, ok don’t eat it if you don’t want to, and he started eating, can I have a yogurt instead he asked, ok said I and got 1 out, look of shock on his face, no I don’t want it now he say’s, ok say’s I and put it back. I’m going to give my toast to the dog say’s he, ok say’s I, Munch ate his toast. Upstairs we went to get ready, I’m not brushing my teeth say’s he, ok say’s I and put his tooth-brush on the sink, he brushed his teeth, I’m not having a wash say’s he, ok say’s I and walked away, he washed. After that he I realised that he just was getting now where and gave up.

It had snowed a little the day before so when we went out to the car, 1st we could not open the doors as they were frozen, then when we finally managed to get in, the windscreen was so icy that the de-icer was not de-icing. I did what I could and just had to put the heater on the window and wha for it to get to work, so despite having left early we ended up a few minutes late.

Me and daddy went off to by a Santa suit in the afternoon as hubby is playing Santa Claus on Thursday at the Children’s Centre’s Christmas Party as their original Santa had let them down and they could not find anyone else to do it, we said that we would provide the suit as they have done so much for us and helped our little one no end over the last 12 months.

Picked Munch up, at home we sat for a good 2 hours making up the Lego figures, that he had received of Grampy in the post today, he still finds it very hard to receive anything and did his usual of saying it was rubbish, I know that this is a defence mechanism kicking in on his part, but it really is staring to grate on me, I cannot bare un-gratefulness. So have said that I am going to tell people to stop sending him things.

After that he had his computer time whilst I cooked a lovely Nigella Lawson Cheese Risotto, then it was bath, TV, supper and bed.
