I spent Friday night in A&E with my younger daughter, taking back all the bad things that I have ever said about her, even in jest. Mainly that she is too much hard work or that I had her too soon. I love her so much.
This weekend was meant to be a good weekend. It was my nephew’s birthday on Thursday and we went out to eat. Friday and Saturday we had tickets to the local music festival and had got upgraded to VIP. It was a family music festival. I wasn’t too sure what to expect so I thought I would take my girls along and see how they get on. Things were looking good. Then my youngest daughter had a bit of a temperature. She kept biting her hand so I put it down to teething. I took her to the festival for about half an hour but she wasn’t enjoying it so then I dropped her off at my mother in laws. I told her she was teething and left a bottle of Calpol with her.
I went back to the music festival where my older daughter was getting her face painted. She then spent the rest of the time there dancing and running around until she got tired and then about 9pm, we decided to go home. By then the battery on my phone had died and I had lost my spare battery (so much for smart phones). So, as soon as I got into the car I started charging it and started listening to the messages and then rushed straight to the hospital.
Apparently she had had a fit due to the heat. It was the first time she has had a fit. It only lasted a few seconds but that’s enough to scare anyone. I spent the rest of the weekend keeping her cool and checking her temperature. In hindsight, there are so many things I would have done differently. Like going to the music festival in the first place! But she’s ok now, touch wood and fingers crossed.
Last time she was teething, she had a nappy rash that spread all the way to her legs and arms and I had to go doctors to get some stronger cream to clear the spots. Obviously, she needs her teeth but I just need a break from them coming through!
Attempting to be an amazing accountant and an amazing mum, somehow combine the two and meet somewhere in the middle but currently failing at both. Hoping that in a few years I will have found something I enjoy doing or found some sort of work life balance and will be in a less stressed out place but until then, or as I get there, I think I...
