Mornings are always a rush to get the boys off to school on time, to get the house looking half decent, so I don't come home to a bomb, and to get to the gym in time for class. It takes even longer to get ready now that Noah has another second skin body suit to put on before he gets dressed. We were so lucky to get the funding for it again. The lady who came down from Sydney to fit it on Noah, told me that she only flew down to see Noah and one other child in Launceston as there were others who had applied for the funding, but it wasn't approved. We are very lucky to have an awesome physio who really pushes for the things that Noah needs.
It usually takes around 30-45 minutes getting Noah ready. It usually takes a good 15 minutes just to get him to empty his bladder properly, and then he needs to have his morning puffer, his mouth cleaned, his morning meds and feed, to get his body suit on, to get dressed and then in his wheelchair before the bus arrives. Luckily Jay and Harri have a pretty good morning routine and they know what needs to be done to get ready for school, while I'm busy with Noah.
It's always nice getting home later in the day and seeing that they remembered to empty the dishwasher before school. Cleaning their room though is another story! :)
I love Monday to Wednesday mornings as the bus comes to pick Noah up. It saves me having to get him in and out of the van myself and makes me get ready faster, as I know that I need to be ready before they get here.
Kobe loves coming out to the bus each morning and waving goodbye to Noah. It won't be long till he's at school too. I told him the other day that he's not allowed to go to school, but has to stay home with me all the time as he's my little mate - I actually love having Kobe with me as he keeps me company during the day - not to say I don't enjoy those quiet two or three hours when he's having a nap :)
