It was a difficult time, for all of us, when Ellie was so sick & in hospital with her nasty infected chickenpox.
The Mummy was talking to her about it, saying “It was really hard seeing you so sick in hospital, Ellie”
She straight-away replied: “But Mummy, remember the fun we had in the playroom there”.
Such wisdom from a 4-year-old!
We can definitely learn a lot from even very young children 🙂

A lot of it is a blur, but I still remember the moment.
My wife had survived what was a very difficult delivery & was still in recovery.

We had a spot of bother on Saturday afternoon.
Twice in a row Ellie was in a lot of pain while having a pee. Fearing a urinary infection we arranged an appointment at the out-of-hours GPs’ Surgery.
Jake seemed to have figured out that Ellie was having trouble with her ‘lady-parts’, so at the hospital after we’d registered he told the receptionist, very confidently:
“I’m alright. I’ve got a willy.”
Such a helpful boy!
Ellie was OK, by the way. She didn’t seem to have an infection, & has had no trouble since.
