Feeling a bit teary...

I got my little man's operation date through today.  It is next month.

Little Man with his first, very special smile. :)

Little Man T was born with a cleft lip and palate and had his first op at 8 weeks and two more since then.  This next one will be to close a hole through his gum, into his nose.   He will have to stay in for a couple of days.

His plastic surgeon and maxillofacial surgeon are just wonderful, and I know he will be in safe hands, but it makes me feel all emotional to think about my little boy going under the knife again.

This is my gorgeous little man now (excuse the snotty nose!)

I am sitting here feeling so sad and the only thing I want right now is a hug from my Mum and for her to say it will be alright - and that is the one thing I will never have.


  1. Sending you a hug, from one mum to another xx Your little man is just gorgeous xx

  2. He's gorgeous!

    Is that strawberry blonde hair I see, got lots of that in my family.

    Big Hugs to you all. But children are amazingly resilient and cope with operations far better than many adults (I do speak from experience).

  3. Will a cyber hug do ... with lots of love and light? He is simply gorgeous and what a smile. Hope it all goes well xx

  4. He is so adorable! Sending you a mega hug! x x

  5. Oh he is such a cutie and a bundle of fun I'm sure.
    Being a mum can be hard sometimes but totaly worth it.
    Big Hugs

  6. What a beautiful little boy!
    My Mum died 9 months before my son was born and there were plenty of times that I would have loved a hug from her over the years too. A big hug from me! :))
