It's me & Ethan

So the HSE have decided that nurses and doctors are no longer allowed to call paitents 'dear', 'love', 'pet', or refer to the sex of a person rather than their name.

Well in the words of "Miley" ( Glenroe not the Miley who comes in like a wrecking ball 😉) "Well,Holy God"

As a parent of a child who has spent and still spends a lot of his time with people in these roles, I find this offensive.

I'm offend that these professionals cannot show a little bit of affection towards their paitents in a time when they are afraid, scared unsure of what is happening or going to happen.

Do you know what's it's like to have a nurse hug you and tell you "it's going to be ok sweetheart,he's going to be fine" while you wait for news about your child who is having yet another operation?

That nurse or doctor in that moment is my friend, my comforter.

With so much disconnect in this world,I do not understand why the caring role of nurses and doctors is currently being controlled by a list of 'dos' and 'dont's' by people who have never watched how these people have cuddled and calmed you or your child on a day when you felt there was nothing else in life but that moment.

I am offended and find it offensive that nurses and doctors are no longer allowed to show human emotion towards those they are caring for.

What about us ?

What about those of us who find this offensive ?

I've a nurse who is an outreach nurse, she is my lifeline. She is my go to lady when it comes to Ethan.

I've great public health nurses who are here in my home more often than some of my family members.

Each of these ladies call us by our names and then use pet names.

It's not offensive.

It's showing you care. Showing affection and letting me know and my kids know that they care, through not only their actions but their words too.

This is political madness gone mad.

Taking the heart out of these caring roles is wrong.

And don't even start me on pregnant person ...

*End of rant*

Below Ethan as a lion because he thought he looked good and he isn't wrong 😉

It's me & Ethan

We were invited, we've been invited every year since they began.

It's a pleasure and an honour for us to be included.

This year it was a solo mission for me as hubby couldn't attend.

Hop along J was left at home while my sister L and her little family came along.

I always tell people Ethan is like a 1940s husband, he expects dinner on the table at 3pm when he gets back from school and tea begins at 6pm.

We left for the magical wonderland which is better known as Elf Town Galway at 5pm.

I thought I was prepared for anything Ethan may require but as time went on I realised that I was not😐

Ethan didn't enjoy the experience at all.

I truly believe it was due to food;me not bringing enough and him not having his tea while watching the Simpsons or the Nightmare before Christmas.

Routine. Routine. Routine.

A friendly Elf saw me struggling and asked if I'd like to be fast tracked to see Santa🙌

I could have kissed him but instead I followed him leaving my five year old to stroll through the magic with my sister💕

We got to Santa and Ethan still wasn't happy.

I reminded Ethan that this was the real deal Santa sitting here, the very same gentleman who attended Ethan's super 16th birthday party back in May.

Ethan looked at him while Santa was his wonderful caring self.

After a few shouts Ethan calmed and pointed at Santa.

I was sweaty and a tad emotional but happy.

Happy to see Ethan acknowledge that this was indeed Santa 🎅 (and what a Santa Eamonn is🙌💕)

Once again Barry, Eamonn and all the crew at Elf Town outdone themselves🙌🙌😘

They catered to Ethan's needs like Ethan was a VIP.

They made me feel that Ethan mattered and that Ethan seeing Santa was a goal we could all achieve together.👏👊

My youngest got home almost an hour after us as he had a long ol chat with Santa.😂🤦

All I know is there was a debate over "Mike Myers " 🤦🤦

He came flying in the door telling me that he asked Santa to fix J's leg but that Santa said he'd do his best. Santa even gave him an extra token for his brother. ( Santa gives tokens so the kids can go to the elf shop and pick what they'd like )

Thank you to all at Elf Town for once again starting off our Christmas.

A special thank you to Barry and Eamonn , you are both gentlemen and always good to Ethan on the day 😘

And to those of you thinking of where to bring your kiddies to meet santa , I honestly cannot recommend Elf Town enough, it's amazing how different it is every year yet they keep the same amazing standard and quality each and every year.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas 💕🎅 🌲

  1. Did you ever find out what the canteen lady’s name was? I have 2 aunts who work there and was just wondering if it was one of them. Because the way you describe her sounds like them both. But all the staff are so kind and get little or no recognition for the job they do. So from myself and the many times I’ve spent overnight with my 3 boys (ESPECIALLY my eldest son now 18) thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart xxxx

    1. Hey Suzanne! Yes I did indeed. Nora is the lovely ladies name! Yoou’re absolutley right, there are many amazing ladies and gents working there, that’s for sure. Thank you so much for taking the time to get in contact. Wishing you and your boys well x
