We wanted to make sure we had our flag flying. When we move into our McCormick home, we’ll fly it high! But for today, we held it and talked about freedom. We also showed Tatum a powerful video documenting the over 1 million soldiers who have died in battle. Cooper joined us in our remembrances.
Then we just had a nice day playing and having fun.
and then played hide and go seek.
Do you see him?
He loves to lay like a bear rug.
Oh the joy.
Thank you America for being our country. Thank you soldiers for fighting for our freedom.
I’m tired of my cough and just being sick, mommy. We’ll try the Aquafor for the skin. The inhaler to clear the lungs. The oils for the diffuser at night to clear out something! The saline spray to clear the sinuses. Did I miss anything? Oh, yes Singulair and Zyrtec. Now they recommend a facial sauna for more clearing. Yes, I’d love some clarity here.
Frankincense helped Jesus, right?
Thieves seems to “steal” all the bugs and throw them A..WAY!
Take a whiff of this, and you’ll clean yourself out for a week.
Yesterday was wonderful!
Good morning! How did you sleep? Tatum and I slept in till 9:30 (8:30 AZ time). Now, this could mean that we slept in or that we just slept in the morning. BZZZZZZZ. B is the answer. Apparently baby was falling out of the bed often, so therefore, it was up to me to find him every few hours.
So, we got up and enjoyed our breakfast with Tommy, Dolly and Doug. Cheerios always hit the spot.
Then she got a bit chilly and Batman could not warm her up. Well, a mommy’s work is never done and THANK GOODNESS for that!
It was time to BREAK THE ICE and play a few rounds before she stole Tommy to play.
We headed to the park, and John and I had a chance to chat. Tommy, Dolly and Tommy kept Tot busy!
It was a bit chilly and windy, so we headed home to (nap) hang out! Dolly and Tommy played with Tot and let me relax a bit! I so appreciate all of them so much!
Tatum wanted to change into cozies, so she found a small shirt (small for large people!) to put on, and she then discovered the droids. She loves droids because she is bigger than them!
It was then time to cook, and Johnathan has THOSE skills! I figured I’d help! Maybe not. My skills are not as sharp (haha)
Again, another lovely dinner, games and chats. I think I need a lot longer in UTAH!
We’ll sleep well tonight! Or will we??????? I’ll tell you one thing: It’s so wonderfully dark and quiet so I should, right?
Oh yes, it was worth every single minute of our 1:30 appointment. Tatum’s fall on Sunday which resulted in
meant that I had to follow up at the dentist on Tuesday. Well, the lovely Dr. Libby who gave me the very sound advice about clicking her tooth into place was now no longer seeing patients with my insurance. This shocking news came Tuesday morning when I called for our appointment. So much for following up with her. I scrambled to find a dentist who would accept us. We finally found one way far on the west side.
Arriving at 1:30, we plopped ourselves down in the chair and looked around. It was packed to the gills with hispanics kiddos and all of the siblings. The “playroom” was nothing like the spaceship at our old dentist. It was just a wall of video games in this dark tunnel. Not appealing. So, I pulled out my handy dandy Kinder Brain Quest, and off we went to “which word starts with the letter “C”? games.
Finally after 30, we were called and entered the room. First, X-rays. Tatum was so brave with the coat that weighs more than her 27.6-lb little body.
Smile pretty and hold still! No wiggle worming at all! Great job, Tot.
Then we were led into room 4 with the “Dr. will be right in to see you.” Being right in must be a relative term. In my book, that means within like 5 minutes.
The nurse wanted Tatum to stare at the movie on the ceiling, but sheesh! That could only last so long.
So, Tot and I got creative as usual.
We played glasses
We played dance around the room!
We played take pics of mommyMissed..but pretty close!
Videos, pacing around the chair and counting…. You name it!
OK, finally the dentist came in acting as if we had only been there for like a minute, and proceeded to show us her X-rays. The roots are in tact, and her loose tooth will actually seal back into place within a week or two! Just keep up the smoothies and ice cream. (Big smile). He also assured her the fingers in the mouth were ok (for a teeeeeeeeeny bit longer). He told me if she hadn’t grown out of it by age 7, then I should worry. (Seriously? 7?…more like 4!)
By 3:10, we were out of there. Part of the benefit of being on the west side, meant that we got to go to Bookman’s used books (which has zillions of used books and 10%off for kiddos!) and frozen yogurt (YUMMMMY!).
Finally we got home, and she wanted to immediately read this:
Yes, Spiderman. Not, Princess Blah Blah Blah…but good ol’ Spidey. She loves Paw Patrol and Spiderman now. My girl is ALL girl with some added coolness of superheroes and rescuing doggies!
