I am often surprised by the resilience of my children.

As was proofed yesterday once again when Little man L went in to have his tonsils removed.

He refuse the pre-med.
He refused to have the tags on his arm - we added them to his leg at the very last minute
And he had a huge tantrum about putting the theatre "dress" on. In fact, when he came to he immediately asked where his clothes were.
When he came to, he immediately pulled out his drip - causing a few moments of drama.
Then he had some pain meds and he and Dino and Bunny napped for close to one and a half hours.
After which he immediately tried to yank those tags off and wanted to dress and devoured jelly, ice cream, salty chips and a tin of Coke - all supplied in a cute hospital version of a party pack.
And we were home by 12:00.
It all went fine and today he is playing very happily at home. I am so thankful!

  15. Glad it all went well - have to say I feel the same way about the drip and have been known (as an adult) to throw a tantrum about having it in.

  17. The only good part of getting my tonsils out was getting ice cream. I can still remember how it soothed my throat.

  19. You are so right.  Kids are so resilient.  I learned that with my daughter too and I am simply amazed at seeing how well little kids deal with thing that I am sure would affect me much much more!
