A decade of bliss.

April 22, 2010

It has been 3 and a bit months since my last blog. What can I say, I am a woman of few words.

Ok you caught me, I’m actually lazy and forgot about this. Today is my oldest sons 10th birthday, I am also 33 weeks pregnant as of today which in itself is rather amazing. Unfortunatley my little bump has become more of a highly pressurized blimp. I hope my water breaks on it’s own as I think I would drown people should they happen to be “facing the flood”.

I look at my oldest son and think, you shouldn’t be here, which may sound mean but it isn’t.  Rick was given a 3% chance of survival when he was born.  I am happy to say he is perfectly fine, no disabilities, no long term effects, no nothing. They asked me if I wanted them to try and save him. For a few seconds they did nothing, waiting on me to decide his fate. Honestly I was thinking “could you ask a stupider question? of course I want you to save him”. What I actually said was “GO, GO, FUCKING GO!! DON’T YOU DARE LET HIM DIE!” and so they went.

That was the only time it crossed my mind that he might not make it, but then again when you have an entire team of doctors standing there waiting around doing nothing, of course you’d think he had a chance of dying.

It was a good day. I got him Pokemon SoulSilver, a Sony camera, Naruto: Broken Bond (on 360), and a Pikachu stylus. We also spent the night at my mums house which he loved, we went and saw How to train your Dragon which honestly was one of the best kids movies I’ve ever seen. I’m not kidding, this movie was incredible. The scenery, dialogue, action sequences.. everything was perfect.

Here’s to 10 more years of Awesomeness from the best oldest son I’ve ever met :3
