Happy Friday, peeps!
Let's start off with this week's You Tell Me winner.
Yeah, I chose him. Trey, Sara's husband.
1. Because it was funny.
2. Because he was brave enough to make a joke about my kid being temporarily unconscious.
3. Because Sara was gutsy enough to post it.
Which leads me to believe these two are as kooky as I was hoping they'd be. I can admire that, people.
"If I can just shock Jack back to life, I won't ever have to explain to Casey how this happened."
And, while we're talking about "nice", let's venture into my morning. Two kids with appointments.....old enough to know what happens at the pediatrician's office.....with the first round of h1n1 shots just one month ago.
Today was round two.
As we entered the parking lot.....and then the lobby.....and then the office.....and then the exam room:
"I not want band aids!" (To Lainey, band aids = shots.)
"Band aids broken!" (Jack's terminology for "you can take this idea and shove it, mom".)
It wasn't pretty. I asked who wanted to go first, as I always do.
"Wainey", said Jack. Shocker.
Both kids survived and then when I thought we were just about drowning in tears and done, Jack threw his lollipop across the exam room at the nurse. Surprisingly, they're letting us come back for his 4 Year Well Check in April.
Lainey's on her way to Texas again to save Pa from the monsters. This time, she's rescuing "Cawowine", too. Such concern in those eyes.
Maybe not today. It's cold out.
Jack got a hair cut this morning, after the shot massacre. And, you know we don't mess around with hair cuts.
Total blockhead. And, I love it.
Thanks to everyone who bought Caroline's Love Week shirts. I was so touched with your generosity......close friends and those I've never uttered a word to......just friends via blogland. You overwhelmed me and Caroline, too.
We sported our shirts while skiing last weekend.
It drives Carter insane when Caroline and I wear matching outfits. So, I insisted we all wear them for our day out. Awesome.
And, Caroline's namesake. "Wainey Cawowine" Such a gentle little creature, isn't she?
Finally, let's end on a good note. Flights have been booked! We're headed back to the land of beauty.....La Jolla.
2 weeks of blissful days on the beach. One day with Mickey. Time with family and friends in California.
Which brings me to my weekend plans.....work!
I'm taking on more hours to help with travel expenses and hoping to cover everything with my paychecks. I'm loving my job. Life is good!
