I am amused by /proud of my son right now.
He is going through a round of nose bleeds, including one that lasted over 90 minutes today. I was at work doing a double shift at work (I’m a nurse) so my partner brought my son to Emergency. It was a longish day for my eight year old and he is extremely tired of all this. (He had a round of this last year and it resulted in a surgical ligation of one vessel, but here we go again) He is very patient and manages his nosebleeds without tears or fuss, but he’s had 8 in the last 4 days.
He was explaining to me tonight how fed up he is, and I said “Oh honey, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away.”
He looked at me in shock and said “Mom, that is what science is for. Magic wands would mean you wouldn’t have a job”
