It has been a hectic weekend and start to the week. On Saturday our friends Michael and Cath came to have a look at the house, but it was chaotic with the builder arriving and then the painter and us having to get out so that the painter could paint. Sorry Cath, about the crazy visit!! Next time it will be more calm!
So I packed the kids up and we headed on over to Mum and Dad’s to stay the night so that the painter could have 2 days without interruption to finish up. It was nice to have that relaxed time with Mum looking after us. On Sunday Justin and I arrived home at about 2pm to see the status of things and the painter hadn’t even turned up. What a waste of a day, or our time, of my parents precious weekend etc etc. We were furious to say the least. So now in order to finsh this, they are coming every evening this week between 5 and 8pm. Could there be a worse time when you have 3 kids needing dinner, baths and bed???
SO in amongst the mayhem of the painters arriving yesterday arvo and the builder putting up doors, Mum arrives home with Holly and Meg. Holly bounds in, but Mum carries in a crying Meg, blood gushing from her mouth and fat lip. I thought it was just the usual – fell over being silly, put tooth through top lip – no worries! However when I looked in her mouth, the 2 front teeth were all crooked and pushed in, the gum was in shreds and her bottom lip was very swollen and cut. Mum said she was swinging in between to couches, lost her balance and fell flat on her face. So she didn’t hit anything except the ground, but it looked like she’d been bashed with a cricket bat. I quickly rang the dentist, who told me to come NOW. She had a look, felt around and summised that the teeth were not wobbly, but she needed an x-ray to see if the roots had been damaged. If so they would die and turn grey. She was hopeful that this wasn’t the case, nor that the permanent tooth had been damaged up in the gum.
I returned home to a very distraught and worried Mum. She felt so bad that this had happened on her watch. While it was all very scary and horrible to see blood, Meg is OK and it is only a tooth, so in the big scheme of things it is not soemthing she or I should be losing sleep over. I’ll call her today so see if she is OK!
So today I’m looking forward to a quiet one. Having a chance to read a book while there are no builders or painters or kids. 2 are at grandmas and one going to a friends – perfect. I’ve got my 30 week antenatal appt this morning. Hasn’t time flown? I’m feeling good, a little pooped and a bit sciatica’d out, but generally OK. Still waiting for news of my SIL and brother having their baby which was due on Saturday. Come on Sascha!!!
Hope your Tuesday is Peaceful 🙂
