Mothers Day and beyond.....

Mother's Day came and went as it always does, fun with the kids , a trip to the garden center, and a visit with my birth mom, a call to my mom, and any other mothers I feel like cheering on. The kids gave me a fabulous windchime and I love to sit and listen to the gentle sound as the breeze blows across the deck.

yesterday was a fabulous day weatherwise and I spent the afternoon out in the dirt while Hud dug me out yet another garden bed. Having him home on Mondays is great except I'm not sure there are ever enough hours on a Monday to get done all I want him to tackle.

Last night around supper Daniel started complaining of pain in his left ear. As the evening progress, he was crying non stop 'til finally he collapsed. I figured he had burst his ear-drum yet again. A trip to the doctor today confirmed my suspicions, so now he has eardrops, and a prescription. He is also being referred to the IWK to an ENT to discuss permanent tubes. Not quite sure how I feel about that, but seeing as the temporary ones didn't solve the problem I guess we need to consider our options. After talking with Daniel, the doctor who is not our regular one suggested that if we could afford it we should look into independant school for Daniel. Well....we can't afford it, so that's the end of that, but it was funny to me that she thought he was so bright. The two of them were discussing the complexities of the ear and all of it's components.... I felt rather left out!

Anyhoo....I'm off to plant the two Daylilies that Daniel and I bought while waiting to get in to the doctor. The sun is almost out!!!

My sister always had problems with her ears. Sounds like you guys are going through the same thing.

You could talk your son's principal about enrichment opportunities available through the school board. If you are not comfortable with that, there might be a chapter of Association for Bright Children (ABC) in your area that could fill you in.
