Project 52, Week #30


My friend P is taking photography classes, so she always has her camera with her ๐Ÿ™‚ Last time we met at the playground, she took some great shots of the Blackberry boys ๐Ÿ™‚





Ten Thoughts Tuesday



1. BB#1 recovered from his fever in about 3 days.

2. So last week he could go to preschool for his last 2 days. He got to say his goodbyes.

3. My nightmare came true, because wednesday morning BB#2 woke up with a fever ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

4. I got a mini panic attack, because that was the day to take him to the cardiologist, for the appointment he got in january. I didn’t know if I could take him with a fever or not, so I called my friend’s husband who works at the hospital. He said to take him anyway because “you know when you will get your next appointment…”

5. So I took poor sick BB#2 to the hospital. We spent about 2 and a half hours there. We were lucky becasue they accepted out EKG papers, so he got a heart ultrasound and a chest x-ray.

There was no good news, but there was no new news either. The something that they found in january is still the same way so no miracle yet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But at least it has not became worse (yet). If it does the cardiologist said the unwanted “surgery” word ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am still hoping in a miracle. I forgot to ask if this condition comes from him being a preemie, but I think anybody can have this… But so far the condition is not causing any symptoms for him, so the cardiologist said that if he wasn’t a preemie being monitored all the time, we would not even know of his condition.

6. BB#2 is super cranky when he is sick. He does not let me take his temperature and he spits out the Nurofen syrup. So I spent most of wednesday afternoon, evening crying, becasue it was just getting to be too much ( the sick kids, the cardiology appointment and the no sllep for then 5 days).

7. Thursday I took him to a pediatrician, but she did not find anything wrong with him, so I just deceided that maybe his teething was causing all the problems.

8. He is feeling better, no fever, but still teething.

9. Sunday night we had a really big storm here. Again the water was coming through the roof into one of the rooms and the bathroom ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Then the electricity went off ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Husband finally found that the TV died, and that was what was causing the problem. I am afraid the lightning got to the tv ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

10. So last week was pretty crappy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hoping for a better one this week.



Preschool graduation and last day of preschool

Today is a special day. Today is the last day of preschool for Blackberry #1. My, where have 4 years gone? It went by all too fast. I am having mixed feelings. I am sad he is leaving. We loved his preschool, and his teachers alot. It always gave me a sense of security, I always felt he was safe, and loved there. But it also marks the beginning of a new journey for us: starting elemenatry school in September.

Here is BB#1 this morning entering the preschool for the very last time ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


A couple of weeks ago they had their preschool graduation ceremony ๐Ÿ™‚

They did a show, got graduation bags and they had helium filled balloons with everyone’s name on them, which they let go of together ๐Ÿ™‚

The graduation bags:

And one last one with me:



Ten Thoughts Tuesday



1. My “Birthday week” went by pretty good. I had a birthday dinner and a birthday lunch and 2 birthday coffees with friends ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Saturday morning we went to see the Nandorfehervar war remembrance festival.

The Battle of Nรกndorfehรฉrvรกr took place in 1456 and resulted in a Hungarian victory over the Ottomans. That way the Europeans were able to keep the Turkish threat away. Pope Callixtus II ordered to ring every bell at noon for the Christian armies at Nรกndorfehรฉrvรกr. Since then, the noon bell is a reminder of the glorious victory.

3. Saturday afternoon we went to a garden party. There was BBQ, a pool for the kids. We all had a great time.
4. Then Saturday night I went to my good frend’s bridal shower.
I drank rose wine and had a good time.
Here is the bride:
We got penis straws! HMMMMMMM ๐Ÿ™‚
5. Sunday was my niece’sย  9th birthday party. It was held at Aquapolis WATERPARK. lots of pools and water slides. She had 3 cakes! BB#2 really enjoyed the party ๐Ÿ™‚
6. BB#1 was not so lucky ๐Ÿ˜ฆ He came down with a fever by the end of the party ๐Ÿ˜ฆ He was 39.1 CELSIUS by the time we got home.
7. So we have been home sick since then ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Our pediatrician is on holiday, so I have not taken him to any doctors ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But it is probably a virus.
8. This is the last week he can go to preschool. Next week the summer holiday starts and after that he will start the elementary school. So I am hoping he recovers fast and he can at least go for a day or two to say his good byes!
9. I am exhausted from being up at night for 3 nights now (1 bridal shower and 2 with sick kid).
10. Wednesday I have to take BB#2 to the pediatric cardiologist for his follow up. Please think of us. I am sick of bad news, I just want to hear good news.
