Hello Croup!

Tova is home today. No school. She is of course in very good spirits, but isn't breathing quite right. No other symptoms.

I’ve given her Pred and Panadol and she has improved.

It’s nice to have her around the house, she is such a nice little friend. Currently she is in the other room watching a Mr Bean movie. I can hear a Croupy laugh from time to time.

Other than this Croup day, she has been really well. Still no hospital, it’s been well over a year.

Her latest naughtiness has been escaping from car seats while driving. So, that’s fun for the driver. We had to go and buy new car seats. We got 3 new booster seats, a few Houdini straps and a special harness for one of the boosters.
That’s one for the school bus, one for my car, one for Yuvals car. We gave Grand pa an old baby seat that she still fits into (mostly) and a houdini strap, that will stop him having to ocky strap her in his car when he picks her up on Friday (I wish I had a photo of that).

Oh yes, we had to dismantle her beautiful bed and buy her a new one that is close to the ground. She had started thinking that climbing up the bed and throwing her self headfirst to the floor was a good idea.. I disagreed.

So I sold her old bed and got a new one

We have changed horse riding centres and are really happy with the new place. Tova has of course taken this naughty behaviour to horse riding too. Luckily there are two side walker to catch the naughty child. But she also likes to grab their glasses (if they are wearing them) and pull their clothing. It’s all to get the attention of the coaches, whom she loves interacting with, because they are amazing.

It’s great strong willed behaviour, that seems naughty, but it’s great to see her determination and crazy humour. Saying ‘No’ to her delights her even more, so it’s a tricky one.

I may take her to Dr Craig today (www.signaturewellbeing.com.au). I have to get my mother to drive us as she has borrowed my car, since she decided to crash hers, into a police car.
