Blue boy stuff


This is a blog about Luey atm...

We figured out something about him just before. Blue boy is a huge fan of Charlie and Lola, and yesterday I bought him a C&L book to add to his collection. Now, he wasn't supposed to get the book until his birthday next month, but then this morning he had to go to the Drs and he didn't want to go and stated he wasn't going, and well, the book is called, "I am too absolutely small for school" and is about how Lola doesn't want to go to school, but realises in the end that school isn't as bad as she thought it would be, and so I thought I could use it to show how things can be nicer than you expect...


So, on the promise of getting to read the story when he got back, we went to the Drs. Luey has had a cesty cough
for a couple of days, but in the past twenty four hours he's been almost constantly wheezing as well, and because Dave has suffered with asthma most of his life, he wanted the wheeze checked out.


As it turns out, Luey Blue has asthma, treatable with a puffer and a spacer.


When we got home, Luey got to read his book and was very pleased with that. I later had a look at the book and discovered that Lola has an invisible friend. Now a few weeks ago Luey developed and invisible friend, I thought it peculiar that his friend wasn't imaginary, just invisible.
Also, I noted that there is a C&L book called, "I will not ever, never eat a tomato", and yep, you guessed it, the Blue boy doesn't eat tomato... Do you see a pattern here???

Another interesting story about Luey. The other day he was talking about how I "growed" three babies (Erik, Bryn and himself)... Then he said, "When you grow the next two babies..." and I said, I wasn't growing any more babies, and he said, "Yes, you are, I can feel it!" LOL So, Luey feels I will grow another baby, not surprisingly, Dave has no comment to pass on that...


Yeah, so our little boy Blue has asthma. This is Dave's worst nightmare come true, of course, but as I told him, it's not that big a deal these days, every second child has asthma, it's so common, he won't stand out, and the treatments are pretty good, and besides, he hasn't had an "attack" as such, so Luey isn't anxious about it himself or anything...

Oh Sif, I will talk more about the asthma IRL, but wanted to point out that as far as I know, "asthma" is a set of symptoms, not necessarily an on going condition. You can be "prone" to asthma under certain circumstances, but not necessarily be an asthmatic for life so to speak.

DD got asthma symptoms when she was a baby, but hasn't had them since.

I will talk more about this IRL. But! Wanted to say, hope Luey feels better soon, poor little lad!

And we love Charlie and Lola too... and Clarice Bean - she is such a great author!

nother c&l fan here ... audrey likes them too ... she wont eat a tomato either, but she will a moon squirter :) i love the books and i think i love the dvd just a little bit more, the gorgeous accents :)

sorry to hear about luey's asthma, but like you say it's no real biggie these days, you'll take good care of him and he'll be fine.

maybe twins ARE in your future? :) I predict girls in 7 years lol

I had asthma as a child and 'grew out of it'. And oooh out of the mouths of babes! He may be onto something ;)

I agree with Jen - 'asthma' is a set of symptons not neccessarily a life long 'conditon' and dependoing and when/why you get them you can manage it very sucessfully in a lot of ways.

And is sounds like I should be keeping my matching sets of baby girl clothes after all ;)

LOL how cute does Luey look?!! And adding my voice here, I agree asthma is s et of symptoms. I was told Sienna was "asthmatic"-never occurs unless she has a cold/chest infection. Liam had asthma for the first time the other day, and I get asthma periodically when I get chest infections (and I've grown out of it mostly now) I understand it must be worrying, due to Dave's condition, but try not to worry, he probably wont get it much, except for when he's sick.
