Poor Brayden got poked in the eye really hard at school today. The wild child in their class went to hug another student and clocked Brayden square in the eye. I saw his class around 9:30 and his aide asked if I had seen his eye. I told her no, and when he turned around it looked fine. So I thought it was no big deal. Fast forward to 2:45 and then his teacher comes to tell me his eye is red and swollen and he doesn't want to leave the ice pack on. So she brought him to me and he stayed the rest of the 45 minutes in my class with the high schoolers. His eye was so red, and swollen and he was squinting really bad. I called my friend that is an eye doctor and she thought he needed to be seen today. So we made an appointment and off we went. As he was getting out of the car at the dr the bright light was hurting it so he closed his eyes and misjudged and fell out of the car and hit his chin on the car. So I got to carry him all the way inside and up to the second floor...man he is getting really heavy! Well turns out she scratched his cornea. It is not bad enough for a patch, but he does need a prescription eye drop 4 times a day for 5 days and a follow-up appointment on Friday. So because this other child is wild and careless we get to spend $75 between the 2 doctor appointments and Rx and Brayden is pretty miserable. Thankfully, he should be much better by Friday.
I am the mother of 4 crazy, fun, caring, loving, smart, silly, and compassionate boys. I am lucky enough to be on this wild roller coaster ride with my best friend. Join us as we continue on this never dull journey called parenthood...
Brandt is 9 years old, and is in 3rd grade. He is a typical eldest child. He is such a sweetheart, fabulous at sharing, and mature beyond his years. He is incredibly intelligent and a perfectionist. He takes such great care of his brothers. He absolutely loves babies, and can not pass one without talking to it. He loves reading, baseball, and jogging with his daddy.
Brayden is 7 and in 2nd grade. He is really reading well and gets very proud of himself when he learns something new. He has had a terrible time with ear infections. As a result has had 6 ear surgeries to date, with a possible 7th in his future. He is our sunshine and thunderstorm. He is so warm and caring, but if gets upset you better watch out!
Bryson is 6 and so full of life. He is in Kindergarten, and really excelling. He has a zest and joy about everything he does. He is our family comedian and has us constantly cracking up. He is obsessed with baseball, football, or any sport really. He played t-ball and flag football this year. He is extremely tough, and very rarely cries even when he is hurt.
Brennan is 3 and the caboose to our train. He loves baseball and football...really any sport. He is in preschool 2 days a week and hangs out with momma the other 3 days. He thinks he is just as big as the other boys. He is still super affectionate, which I LOVE. Hard to believe he is approaching his 4th birthday already.
