In the last few days, all of my kids have done stuff that makes me really proud of them.
Youngest son has done a great job of helping to look after my wife as she recovers from her operation - he sets up cushions so she is confortable, get her drinks and snacks, makes sure she has the TV controllers, etc. What a great guy.
My daughter's PE class recently had a weigh-in. She was in the "normal" range but one of her friends was above that - she knew she would be, everyone knew she would be but she still had to go through with it. She was really upset by the experience, but my daughter sat and chatted with her after, explaining that a year or so ago she was in the same situation but had worked hard and sorted it out. She is now hoping that, with her help, her friend will do the same.
Number 1 Son has continued to impress at school, having rave comments from his teachers. Because he is working 2 years above himself in Maths, it seems that the entire school timetable for the next 2 years will revolve around what classes he has to be in. Amazing, I never imagined a school would do that for the benefit of one student!
Meanwhile, my wife is recovering really well and has, today, started to do a bit of light work around the house, sorting a big of laundry etc. It is amazing how much she has changed in the last week, that thing inside her must have been slowly poisoning her system. She should be fit and well very soon. Meanwhile, I will continue with my "Working Mom Experience", which, I willingly admit, is far from easy. How on earth do people do it all the time?
