Boys will be boys!

No matter how old they are boys will always end up damaging themselves. My excitement of the day - taking my 18 yo to hospital medical centre to see a GP and for an xray for a broken collarbone which is the 2nd time he's broken the collarbone on this side. He fell off his bmx and on to his arm. I keep telling my boys "There is no medical aid so don't hurt yourselves" but their interests are skateboarding and bmxing and helmets and protective equipment is not cool so dont even ask them to wear anything like that! I suppose I should be grateful that he didn't fall on his head! I am having to take the whole afternoon off work cos this is usually a long process but luckily I have an understanding boss who also has to take time off for kid stuff.


  1. kids dont even THINK about things like medical aid..

    getting hurt doesn't feature high up on their list of things to consider either.

    I have an 11 month old boy, and thanks to you, I now know what to expect. great.

  2. Goodness, yeah i dont think boys consider stuff like danger and pain.

  3. Welcome to blogging! Glad to see your blog up and running. You have good looking kids!

  4. Thanks Kitty - cant believe they're all so big now and strangely I cant seem to remember much of their babyhood (other than isolated bits) - It'll probably all come back to me when I'm very old and can't remember my name!
