Tuesday 26th Aug 2008 - playing with the camera self timer and at being a kid again.
Life has been quite stressfull of late, Cai has been going through a phase of falling over, and when he does he forgets to breath and turns blue, yes we know other kids do this as well, but it is still distressing to see. On one occasion he had real problems breathing and Kerstin screamed for help, this woke me from my normal tired parent trance like state and I grabbed the oxygen, as I did looking at Cai's face to find his very worried, anxious eyes looking back at me saying don't let me die now please dad. It may sound melodramatic but I assure you it is not and so it was good to play on the swings as a child again and forget for a moment the responsibility, though kerstin got the better swing/deal ;-)
Luc is in the pram in the background and the bigger boys weren't feeling well so didn't want to come hence they missed out on a photo opportunity. All boys have had a temperature at some point over the last week but Jason was worst as his lasted all day Sunday and Monday, which meant he missed an exam.
Tomorrow is Olivers birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Oliver, also congrats to Michael who managed 6 A (one was a *) 4 B and a C grade for his GCSE exam results.
