It was a normal Monday morning and we were up by 7am to get ready for school, Breakfast was eaten we were washed, dressed and a few cartoons on for little man. We were out the door by 8.30 wellies on umbrella up and on our way.
So school run complete i was back home by 9.10am feet up and having a brew. The phone starts to ring i look at the number and its the school…… my first thought was they never ring, whats happen. I answered the phone and it was the school receptionist informing me that little man had had as accident.
“Hello is that (insert name) mum?”
“This is the receptionist from the school, just phoning to let you know that (inserts name) has had a accident. From what i can understand he had hit his head on the sand table just under his eye and has marked and started to swell”
“oh ok i will come down and get him now”
“There is no need for that, we will keep an eye on him and if he takes a turn for the worse i will ring back, we just wanted to inform you that he has banged his head”
“Ok thank you, is he ok in himself tho?”
“Yes he has gone back to class and playing again”
I hung up the phone worrying how my little man was, how bad his eye and face was if he had cried a lot and if he had received any comfort and cuddles after. Preschool was nearly up but my hat, coat, gloves and umbrella was ready slightly earlier than normal i wanted to inspect the damage and of course give my little man a big cuddle and tell him what a brave little boy he had been. What i saw was not what i expected, i expected a puffy little face and a black eye. He came out displaying his sticker he had got big smile on his face and a tiny little bruise on the side of his cheek… PHEW his was fine :0) On the way home he told me that he slipped on some sand on the floor and hit his face on the sand table on the way down, He said that it hurt a lot and cried…. but his fine now.
I really appreciate and understand why the school phoned, but goodness was i worried i thought it was going to be so much worse than it was and all i wanted was MY little man on MY lap so I could give him a cuddle. I think that i am going to have to get use to him growing up.
