Chicken pox

It's the little things that you don't think about that are the ones that hit .This week my star went down with chicken pox but in true star fashion he got covered in them and very sore he wanted cuddles but it hurt him to be touched when he saw the spots on his arm he screams and try ed to get me to wipe them off at night he cry ed out in pain every time he rolled over no matter how much i try ed to calm him and explain he just didn't understand that's when it's hard that's the days when i see the sad nest in his eyes the looks of pain and help me mummy these are the hardest days the days when i feel i cant do anything to help my poor star these are the days when i feel like a hopeless mother , i know chicken pox is a normal childhood illness we all get but why does my poor star have to suffer so much i know in time the illness will pass and so will the spots but the scars will always be there along with others in my heart

SWAN sisters

OK so at present I'm full of smiles not because things in life are great not because we've had answers that's all still not changed its because of a very special group of ladies these ladies i like to call my SWAN sisters i suggested a group of us got together and did a sponsored weight loss to try and help raise money for the fab SWAN UK we spent the evening all chatting over facebook and our smiles just got bigger and bigger i love being part of this swan family it doesn't matter if i want to cry ,shout , giggle and laugh or sit in the corner rocking back and forth theres always someone there to hold my hand don't get me wrong these new found friends don't replace my other friends how can they we've been through to much together , my new found friends understand in a different way to others as they live the same life as me so today i want to send extra big hugs to my friends i call my SWAN sisters thanks for picking me up on a low day

A lovely day out

On Sunday we decided to pack the 5 kids into the car and make the most of the last day of the Easter break my Daddy Star wanted to go to a little coastal village called Beer so off we went it was a beautiful day the kids and daddy star went climbing around by the rock pool whilst me and Tommy sat and watched the beautiful view on the very stony beach we sat and cuddled and took lots of photos of the views today Tommy wasn't bothered he couldn't join the others in there fun he was very content on cuddling up with mummy and pointing out the boats and taking photos today was lovely no crying in frustration at the fact his legs would not carry him across the stones to the rest of the family today was what id call a perfect day our life Ive wrote this blog as part of the define normal challenge  http://www.justbringthechocolate.com/define-normal/
