Too much rushing...

I took Chickie to the doctor's today. He has another appointment with the Ear, Nose and Throat doc on Thursday and I needed a new referral (lucky I called to check that today!).

I picked Chickie up from childcare and instead of driving straight there, I brought him home to get him changed. I'd forgotten today was their pj day at childcare (they have themed days every now and then). I probably could have just taken him in his pj's since they really looked more like shorts and t-shirt (green and black pirate themed pj's), but honestly they were filthy!

So I rushed home, rushed him into the bathroom, pulled the shirt off him and then looked straight into those reproachful little puppy dog eyes of his. After inquiring what the problem was, I was told "Mum, you caught my lip on the shirt. You hurt my beautiful lip!" It was all I could do to keep a straight face...

Oh, and by the way - the rumours were true, I've won another award at work. This time it's a "Most Valuable Player" award (and this one came with a $50 gift voucher).

Congrats. Please don't hurt Chicky's beautiful lip any more though ;-)

Thanks everyone.

And I promise - I'll try not to hurt his beautiful lip any more.

Though the way he's growing, I'm not surprised he gets bits caught in the necks of his shirts. At the party on the weekend, he was standing next to his 7 year old cousin and he was almost as tall as her already.

Smart lad!! Kids seem to be a lot smarter right out of the bucket. Must be all those prenatal vitamins...

Aw no fair jon - I just cannot find adult size pirate themed pj's anywhere here (in any colour!) ;)

Thanks btw.

phos - I like to think he's smart, but I'm sure most mothers think their kids are brilliant ;)
