14 Jun Pre-holiday Predics & A Slight Bummer Of A Consultation
‘Twas the night before Disney,
And all through the house,
Nothing was stirring…..
Except me that is. Brain is is overdrive.
Number one on tonight’s night terror feature is my plane nose diving with me and my beloved on there.
Is it far fetched? Not very judging by the world we seem to live in today.
Number two. Have I remembered everything?
Naturally having boobs and a wedding ring means that I am solely responsible for packing for the entire family.
Having cleared out Primark at the weekend I know that we are good in terms of quantity but if it snows, we’re screwed.
Number 3. What if the kids -or us for that matter- become ill over there?
For some reason, the minute Mr D goes on holiday from work he gets the ‘ohhh my body and mind have two weeks to relax…..why does my throat hurt’ type of condition.
Fortunately for me I have just had my bi-monthly mole check at the doctors and like any hypochondriac worth her salt I was reassured for a good 3 minutes.
Nowadays no matter what I go to see him with, all my symptoms are usually cast aside in favour of me being diagnosed as anxious.
“But doctor I really think I have thrush”
“Jodie do you not think you could be chanelling your anxiety into your vagina? Here’s some cream and a CBT appointment”.
Number 4. What if it sucks?
First born has built this holiday up so much in her head that I’m concerned for what her life will become when it’s all over.
“I’m so excited I want to explode all over my room and then jump up and down in the splattered puddings”
Now obviously worry number one, should I be so unlucky enough for it to happen, would supersede the others anyway but since when did night terrors have logic?
I need to drop off as the whole ‘I’ll sleep on the plane thing doesn’t cut it when your flight is 45 minutes and you have a toddler with newly discovered legs.
Either way i’m sure we will have a smashing time.
An appointment with Esme’s Paediatrician this morning left me a little flat as they want to explore possible endocrine issues with her where as I thought she would be discharged. Turns out she has dropped off the bottom centile and they want to start to look into other avenues why.
The positives I’m taking from this though is that they are looking into it and I’m not having to fight for answers like some mums are so having the Paeds on your side is half a battle won.
What she is lacking in height she is making up for in sass & cuteness – judging by how she followed the huge Geoffrey around Toys R Us last week, Disneyland isn’t going to know what’s hit it.
