Kaleb is insane.
We had to go have some blood drawn this afternoon after school. He’s done this no less than 27 times before, without ever shedding a tear. In fact, he’s usually downright fascinated with the entire process – which has always freaked me out, because I can’t stand the sight of needles. Not so today.
Instead, today he acted like the technicians amputated his arm and made him regenerate it.
In the past hour I have heard:
It hurts! Nobody has even touched you yet. I don’t like doctors anymore Mommy. I am not supposed to ever go to the doctor any more. Well, tough luck kid – we’ve got a neuro appointment on the 20th. No! I can’t eat! I’m hurt! Hurt kids don’t eat! And here I just thought it was crazy kids that refused ice cream. There’s red stuff coming out! It’s not supposed to come out of there! I am super thankful you said that one to Sho-Sho, cause I haven’t the slightest idea how to respond. OH No! My lego building broked! Broke. It broke. And you know what to do – put it back together goof. No! Hurt kids DON’T build things!
Boy, hurt kids evidently don’t do much – except whine, drink milk, push Mason, and shed crocodile tears of course.
In his defense, he only pushed Mason because Mase tried to step on him. Then again, Mase wouldn’t have stepped on him if he weren’t laying across the doorway. Yet, he wouldn’t have been laying across the doorway if I hadn’t told him I wasn’t rebuilding his Lego building for him. So, I guess you could lay that one on me!
We had another meeting at the school today to get the FBA paperwork signed, and to discuss Kaleb’s suspensions. I’m definitely glad progress is being made. I was supposed to go straight to a PTA meeting after – but the meeting ran late. Luckily the PTA meeting was cancelled so I wasn’t the horrible secretary I thought I was.
The next week should be an interesting one. Mason goes for his shots tomorrow, then I promised Kaleb we’d go to Target after school and get an ice cream (Icee), Legos (thank you blood work for forcing me to offer bribes), and his Valentines for school. Movie night – with friends! Yay! Pirate Festival on Saturday, possible girls lunch Sunday, Therapy Monday, PTA Meeting Tuesday, find out if my book made it through the first round of cuts on Wednesday, and Valentine’s day! I’m already tired.
Speaking of, evidently both of my kids decided to call it quits for the day. Kaleb asked for Madagascar in his room, put on his jammies and is laying in bed playing with his Legos. Mason grabbed his bus and his milk, and is laying in bed watching Cars. I’m sitting here wondering if this is a blessing, or a curse. There’s no way they’re actually going to go to bed. Especially when Mason took a nap despite our best attempts to keep him up. Even Milo is sleeping. Why am I the only one not in bed right now?
I don’t know – but I sure am looking forward to sleep! Even after crashing early last night – it was still a restless night, and I think I’d sell an internal organ for a decent, full, restful night of sleep.
Not that it would do that much good. I work pretty well on no sleep. On the rare occasion that I do get it, I spend the whole day sad I had to leave the bed.
I’m thinking we’re going to make Frankenfeet tomorrow night 🙂 Or maybe I’ll take another shot at the mummies. I love my little monsters cookbook! What are your favorite kid friendly snack recipes?
