Sometimes motherhood is a heavy task for me.
Wormpjes, krentenbaard, bedplassen, spreekbeurten, werkstukken, gamen in plaats van huiswerk leren, liefdesverdriet enzovoort. Ik moet overal verstandig mee omgaan, oplossingen bieden, soms alles uit mijn handen laten vallen...
Worms, impetigo, bed wetting, speaking engagements, essays, gaming instead of learning homework, heartbreak and so on. I have to deal sensibly with everything, provide solutions, sometimes dropping everything out of my hands...
Yesterday was such a day. Eldest (16) injured himself at football training Tuesday evening. He came home when I was already in bed. In the morning at eight o'clock we called with the general medical practice, at half past nine we were there for an appointment and at 10 minutes past nine we were outside the hospital after an x-ray was taken and evaluated. His ankle is just badly bruised and fortunately nothing is broken.
De foto's maakte ik vanochtend in de straat nadat ik de vuilniscontainer aan de weg had gezet.
I took the photos this morning in the street after I had put the garbage container on the road.
De koffie met warme melk, een beetje suiker en een Choco Prince was mijn verwenmoment daarna.
The coffee with hot milk, a little sugar and a Choco Prince was my moment of indulgence after that.
