Thursday

Not much posting. Don’t feel like talking that much.
Just getting on with each day.
Had Oscar at the second appointment with the ENT yesterday.
He had surgery on his nose this morning.
At the little day surgery attached to the ENT’s rooms.
Which classifies as a private hospital day surgery.
For which our health insurance does not cover.
Note to self: remember to take meds before taking Oscar to a surgical procedure and dealing with just how much this is costing us.

What else can I tell you?

Grover is taking about five steps at a time?

Felix is all stressy and tired and adrenalin-charged as this week involves the three (new) national tests for kids in Years 3,5,7 and 9.
My advice to this almost 8 year old?
You do your best, stay calm and realise that whatever the results they are no reflection on you as a person.
He’s 8 on Saturday.

Um.
Yeah.
That’s about it.

    I HATE those tests. Youngest gets very stressed over them.

    What can I say…keep putting one foot in front of the other, keep your head up, and know that I’m thinking of you.

    My son is doing the year 7 tests…they seem to be spending much more time taking tests than actually learning anything.

    My father offers each of his grandchildren $100 for the first test they fail. He HATED school, never went to university, and has succeeded in all aspects of life. Go figure.

    Grover – five steps at a time! Go little dude!

    Thinking of you Kim!

    Believe me, next year I will be stressed about those tests…My 7yo can barely write and has now had test after test to reveal he’s been writing with the wrong hand. Which is what we suspected all along. Back to the drawing board as they say.

    Oh, and don’t get me started on the concept of a national test before we have a national curriculum…

    Oh yes, those new tests. Jeeze, as if childhood isn’t already busy and stressful enough. Maybe in the next two years before Miss E is in year three, it will change.

    Sorry about the day surgery and slack medical insurance 🙁
