Back again

I hope you' ve all started the year with the right foot having fun doing whatever you wanted with whomever you wanted.
On the 30th of December my son had an operation -horribly scheduled really- and even though it wasn't a huge deal, it was painful...and the recovery is even more painful. And for a 2yr old all of this pain all of a sudden is unexplainable. For us parents it has been a test of patience and strength really. Emotional and physical strength because this little one seems to be quite a strong kid. Putting on a diaper, changing bandages, bathing him, etc... it's a task for 2 adults and still takes us 3 times longer than before.
We -parents- feel very guilty. Even though we know he had to have the operation (circumcision for medical reasons), seeing your kid cry all the time, yell when he has to pee, the pain in his eyes... really awful. And one can not do a thing. Just hold him and kiss him.
The one thing that has changed in my life since I' m a mother, is the fact that there is now a whole new vulnerable dimension to our lives. I can deal with my own pain, but your kid in pain is something difficult to swallow.
Anyway, after a difficult first week, things are looking up. So, as soon as I can load pics, I will show you what' s been going on here... craft wise :) Not a whole lot but I am determined to make this year one of learning. Not so much focused on selling but more on learning new things, skills, techniques...meeting new people and ...just being all around happy. I succedded pretty well last year in that last account so I guess I'll keep doing what brought me that happinness: creating and speding time with my two men.

What an ordeal for you - I hope your little boy is better very soon :D

Magriet said...

I can only imagine how difficult it must've been for you. I hope he gets better soon. If only we could take the pain away for them.
Take care.

it's heartbreaking when little ones have to go through things like this. i'm glad to hear that things are looking up. have a very happy 2009, full of growth and happiness.

Marian said...

Thanks everyone. He seems to be doing better!

Lily Pang said...

Marian, It is very difficult. But kids are tenacious. They will recover very fast. My baby also had an operation before. I totally understand how you feel.

Good to see you are strong and happy!

Wish you have a fruitful new year!

thank you for signing up to the newsletter! I don't know how 'spammy' it would be to approach buyers - each time I order something online I get promo emails from the companies afterwards. Actually some do remind me of their company name whereas I might have forgotten it. Ie Awesome Badges - wanted to order more and totally forgot the company name! They send me a christmas promo mail and I was really pleased!!! its a double edged sword!

Aw, Marian, I hope you and the little one are doing OK. If it makes you feel better, my husband had the same operation at around the same age, and he doesn't remember a thing about it. He'll probably kill me for divulging his personal details, but it's for a good cause! ;)

i hope your son heals soon, poor kid. the good thing? he probably won't remember a thing in a few years. but i still feel so bad that all of you must go thru it! it'll pass soon...

Florcita said...

You are right Lily! and a good fruitful year to you too!
Anna, you are right as well. I actually Im more inclined to think like you... I stopped to think when I was told that... but I think I will do it the same,.. maybe adding a disclamer or something.

Fishy, thanks! It actually does help to know that it wont scare him for life hahaha! Yeah, I hope all my blogs are gone by the time my son is a teen, otherwise he will hate me so much!
