slings and arrows of outrageous fortune

The children were all given money for Christmas (including Victoria) and Simon bought a very shiny playmobile knight and a sort of canon. He has been having great fun with this and all his other playmobile. When I had to go out to the post office this morning i took the precaution of sending Richard to his room (to minimise trouble..) so what was my horror when I found, upon my return, that James had fired the aforementioned canon at Victoria! I have told him (as he pointed out yesterday at the table) TWICE about how the Lord wants us to look after Victoria - admittedly he DID look repentant as he confessed - but it is getting a bit difficult to protect Victoria from the hazards of living in a medieval war-zone with rebellions and counter-rebellions going an all around her.
Victoria is not seriously harmed by her experience - perhaps it will be a good incentive to her to become mobile sooner than later - so she can escape the missiles (or eat them - that will make sure the boys take care to stage their wars elsewhere!).
This afternoon is the first hydrotherapy session but Victoria is not going becaue I haven't yet asked the cardiologist whether it is OK for her to go. I plan to do that at next week's appointment.

    As the mom to some serious Playmobil fans, all I can do is laugh, grin! I am sure Victoria will be victorious in the end (as she swallows their cannonballs and swords, and flushes their shields and weapons down the toilet - yes it has happened here!)
