Those Vulnerable Moments {The Ordinary Moments}

This week has been a week that was out of the ordinary. It was a week that was planned for months and one that I was not looking forward too. H was at his most vulnerable stage and I just wish I could of done more as a parent.

H was scheduled for an operation, one that had to be done, but one I was so nervous about.

Rewind a few months and it was Moo I was worrying about, she was booked in for a Grommet operation and although she was old enough and understood, the fear was still there. It was a long 40 minute wait and when they called my name to go and see her I practically ran down the corridor.. I said to Mr B then that if there was any way that H could get away without having to have an operation I was all for it, but that wasn’t the case.

Monday was hell and quite frankly the rest of the week has been no fun either. It was a longer wait than Moo’s and it didn’t help that Mr B was constantly saying surely its done now?

Again when my name was called I had to hold myself from leaving the nurse behind and belting for recovery. H was fast asleep and peaceful..

H was and still is so vulnerable and I have struggled hard to keep it together this week, its been hard work and has been one of those huge tests as a parent. Not being able to go out and see people and friends has been the hardest.

being a parent is jolly hard work and nobody can prepare you for the little mishaps that pop up along the way, but when you are away from them for just an hour and are reunited with them the joy that it brings you is amazing..

    Oh bless him- what a brave little man. It is so hard to instinctively hand them over for something like that isn’t it? I haven’t had to do it with Mads since she was tiny but it’s so hard. Hope this week is easier. xx
