Ben got up this morning and decided that he did not want to go to school.
I really wasn't too bothered as he never asks to take a day off school. I know he is tired and we are just about at the end of another term (school holidays start in 2 weeks time)
So I agreed to him staying home, I am here all day with Alex anyway, so makes no difference whether I have 1 or 2 kids.

Ok, so he has been a little pain the whole day. He has bugged me constantly, reminded me of everything possible when we have gone anywhere and generally been a pain. Makes me realise why I send him to school now!

Unfortunately, Alex had a Doctor's appointment today, nothing serious, but 2 minutes before we left the house, I mean I was literally just collecting my bag, when there was this almighty scream. I ran into the garden to discover Ben sat on the floor in the garden holding his head, screaming and telling me he had fallen when jumping off the baby trampoline we have.

I quickly reasured him, gave him a cold cloth for his face, had a quick check and then whipped them out the door to Alex's appointment, knowing I could get a better look at his face once we got to the Doctor's surgery, because then at least we wouldn't be late for the appointment!

How bad a mother does that make me....more worried about missing the appointment than checking my son was ok after a tumble?

Anyway, he is fine. Nicely grazed all up the side of his face, lip, nose, cheak and eye. He is definitely going to go to school tomorrow with a slightly black eye.

The red up his cheak is graze not where he was flushed! He has a few little cuts as well. Actually made a really good mess of himself!

Told him he should have gone to school today!

Ouch!!! Guess he won't be staying home again real soon.

Actually, it was probably good that you were on the way to the doctor's appointment. He could have checked him out if needed.
