Brinn loves the magnifying glass. Today she was on the hunt for something exciting.
She took the letters off the magnet board inside her playhouse, “look mom, letters!”
What else? Thinking hard.
what do I see…in the tree….
and some little sprouts, we’re thinking sunflowers because Maeve’s homemade, soda bottle bird feeder was filled with them.
Last night wasn’t picture worthy- green beans and ham.
Tonight I had big plans, but my insides feel like they’re being chewed on by rabid dogs, so all I can say is CHICKEN. And please keep in mind I’m not here to impress people who read my blog. When it’s all said and done at dinnertime, my son probably went to Taco Hell with his friends before coming home from school, my 9 yr old fed half of her dinner to the dog, and my 2 yr old ate a poptart.
And my dinner tonight? Hersheys.
But braces on my daughter! We went in for her yearly orthodontist check-up yesterday.
All of the way there she’s nervous, fretting over: Will it hurt when they look? What will they do? OMG I didn’t brush my teeth!
All of the way there I’m sweating over the COST, WHEN, HOW MUCH, HOW LONG will I pay the doctor’s mortgage (again)?
We’re taken to the back, and Brinn won’t get out of the patient chair. She absolutely demanded to have a little look-see first. Maeve knocked her out of the seat (screaming ensued) and the doctor takes a peek. Maeve only has one baby tooth left that needs to fall out, and he tells me, “I’ve never seen a patient this advanced, she’ll be ready for her braces in about 9 months.”
I have officially started making plans for Shaye’s 1st birthday party. This year FLEW!
When Brinn turned one, I went hog wild for pink and cupcakes. Her invites were big cupcakes, pinata, plates, balloons, all of it. But for Shaye I’ve decided to go with lavender and presents.
B.Swanky Children’s Boutique.
Brinn’s birthday cake was a 2 tier pink cake. I didn’t want a giant cupcake “cake”, so we went with this.
For Shaye we will have one made to look like a lavender present:
