We see the Geege's family pretty regularly and I would have thought that they were briefed on all the comings and goings in Casa Four. Today, as my m-i-l gasped when she saw Doo Dah's gappy gums, I realised that maybe I need to communicate more!
So here are the things that we all need to catch up on.
Doo Dah broke his wrist in the first week of the school holidays. It is the second broken bone we have had to deal with. It was the classic "Mrs L., your son Doo Dah fell off the monkey bars and hasn't been himself" apologetic phone call from the vacation care manager, followed by the loooong wait in the ED, topped only by the three hours for our appointment(!) in the Fracture Clinic the following week. He is rocking along just fine and we get the cast off on May 21.
The tooth faery had her third Tour of Duty at our place when Doo Dah lost his first one a couple of weeks ago. We now have the routine down pat and, thanks to a little gift from At Number 32, we have a gorgeous "tooth pouch" for safe keeping.
The soccer season* is well underway and despite the fact that Doo Dah can't play (wrist), his Dad has been up at the crack of dawn each Saturday to attend to his coaching duties. Nugget's team wins one and loses one, but the kids are all improving each week and are having such fun! The more we ensconce ourselves in the local community, the more I am impressed with its friendliness and sense of connectedness. This is a lovely place to raise a family.
Splendor in the Heights went off with a bang last night. The thrifty decorations were effective and everyone's costumes were superb. The questions were challenging but good. Our reluctant emcee did a fantastic job as Freddie Mercury (with obligatory groin gropes and sleazy moustache). The air guitar competition which, let's face it could have been a total fizzer, was hilarious and a real crowd pleaser. And we raised over $1000 for the school (thanks largely to the generous sponsors and fines for Smart phone usage!). But the best bit? Our committee of ten became really good friends during the organising process.
But that is enough about us.
What do you and I need to catch up on?
