Mean Mom

Jackson has been pouting most of the morning. He keeps jumping on the bed and running head first into a pile of blankets and pillows. I keep telling him to stop and to calm down, but then he pouts and tells me I am a mean mom.

He told me "Running is fun. Walking is boring." I have also heard him say "I am a little boy, and boys need to be crazy." I agree, he is a boy, and boys should be crazy- just not days after brain surgery.

Leaving the hospital we were given some restrictions and guidelines. No straws, no swimming, no diving (sky diving or pool diving), no sneezing and no picking his nose. All of these restrictions are in place for a month. Jackson has been great, and so far the hardest restriction to follow is the "no straws" one. Luckily he's not a nose picker.

It's a Monday. We're back at home and pretty much everything feels like normal. Changing sheets, making beds, eating breakfast, watching cartoons. How is it that everything can feel so normal already?


  1. I am glad you feel normal. Last week was crazy for you all. So today feel normal. Congratulations. Keep up the good work.

  3. So glad to hear that you are home. Nice to be back to a little bit of normal.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
