The little man goes to hospital.....

Oh boy was last week a big one. After many months of ongoing sickness from colds, flus, throat infections, tonsilitis and ear infections, not to mention the sleep apnoeia, it was finally time for the little man to take a trip to that dreaded place to have his tonsils and adenoids removed.

As he'd never been to hospital he wasn't worried about it at all. In fact, he didn't even know what it was. Someone that was very worried however was his mum. Preparations included stocking up the fridge with lots of yummy soft foods such as yoghurt, custard, ice cream, and jelly, while Dad was gathering and collecting items to entertain and distract the boy once he came home. Apart from the latest Fireman Sam books and Fireman Sam dvd's, lots of cardboard boxes and craft paint were also required.

What were the cardboard boxes for I hear you ask. Well for building a 'Sam Truck' of course!

I'm actually not sure who enjoyed building this firetruck the most.

Dad gave it a lick of paint while the boy was playing at nan's house, and you can imagine the joy on his face when he came home to this.

You will have to stay tuned for the action photos and you will be pleased to hear that the boy is doing well. He is recovering remarkably quickly and I'm sure it won't be long til he's back to being a 4 weetbix boy for breakfast!


  1. Poor darling! Hugs and kisses to you all!

  2. Oh! He's going to feel so much better soon xxx!

  3. Poor C! Poor Nicole!

    Hope he is having a speedy recovery....

  4. Been thinking of you all! So happy to hear that the little guy is recovering so quickly. x

  5. glad to hear he is home & on the mend! Give him a big cuddle from us.

  6. What a brave little boy. Happy to hear he is recovering well. LOVE the fire truck so that obviously keeps him distracted.

  7. okay, when you mentioned the fire engine today (at the shirt and skirt market) I had no idea it was this flash! My god that will be stuck in the little guys memory forever...
