We have been busy little bees around here lately, folks. Celebrating Jack all week....Chuck E Cheese's (Lord give me strength) on Monday......beach picnic on Tuesday.....Rio, the movie, on Wednesday.......party prep tonight.
*****Sweet Jackie got 4 shots and a prick for his TB test yesterday. What kind of mother schedules such on his birthday?! I had to. It was the only time Blake was available to stay home with Lainey while I took Jack by myself. After last year's "conduct disorder" mark on our records, I wasn't going to take any chances. I'm pleased to report that our little guy willingly stepped on the scale, measured his height, took his hearing and sight tests, etc, etc. The pediatrician was perhaps the best we've ever seen and Jack was the best behaved I've seen in a very long time. Now, he did refer to the nurses as the "dentist girls", but then again, his father still calls flight attendants, "stewardesses", so can we blame him?
*****Lots planned for the next several days. Company coming in.......more party prep.......another doctor's visit to recheck the TB test....baking......cooking......work on the back yard and more. What do people do all day if they're not busy? I've never understood that.
*****Starting to think about a little vacation this summer before we head off to Florida in July. Las Vegas is a short 5 or 6 hours away. Might take the whole fam to tour the city and laze by the pool in June. Although I don't think Vegas is very high on anyone's list for a family attraction, I do think there is plenty for kids. Check this site.
New York New York
We can ride the train up and down the strip and see the attractions at dusk and relax by the pool during the day. I'm not talking about a Hangover re-enactment, people, so calm the hell down. Kids will be on a 2 drink limit and there will be a midnight curfew for everyone. No hookers and no gambling.
*****I saw Water For Elephants tonight. Absolutely loved it. LOVED. They totally nailed the cast. Christoph Waltz as August was brilliant. Robby and Reese were awesome, too. Highly recommend it. If you haven't read it, do that first.
Back soon. Yall have a great weekend!
