thursday's thoughts

1.) Early dismissal today which means my kids are entertaining themselves by climbing on my shoulders & screaming, "You can't get me" to sister. #SerenityNow

2.) Signed up to bring orange-themed snack for preschooler's class this week. Bought carrots, cheese cubes, goldfish, oranges, & pumpkin cookies. #OrangeYouGladThatWasEasy

3.) Where did all this traffic come from? Does nobody work till 5:00pm on Fridays anymore? It's not even 2:00pm yet. #LetsGoPeople

4.) Worries of a SAHM #753: Forgetting or being super late picking up my midgets from the carpool line. It seriously could give me an ulcer.

5.) RT @capricecrane: Change is inevitable. Unless you need it to feed the parking meter. Then it's nowhere to be found.

6.) Hubs and I are desperately trying to bring sexy back by eating healthy and working out at the gym together. I have never eaten so many salads within one week and have had hardly any carbs. I think my body may go into shock any day now. #CarbsAreMyWeakness

7.) The big one just came to me to tattle because little sister was tattling too much on her. Then I pointed that fact out and she ran away crying. #IsntItIronicDontchaThink

8.) Lyla likes to put baby Jem-Jem's things inside the little squares of our wine rack because she says it's her cubby. Like at school. #LoveIt #MakesSenseToMe

9.) Q: What is love? A: Love is when Hubs gives you his earphones at gym because you forgot yours & don't wish to die of boredom while running.

10.) Caught big sisters letting their baby sister chew on their toes. Words cannot express how much this annoyed Mommy. #DisgustinglyDisturbing

11.) Internet has been spotty for the last couple of days. Nothing good can come of this. #CharterDontFailMeNow

12.) Told my tallest one that I had to finish laundry once we got home at which she quickly responded back with, "No, you have to play with me. I am a child of God." Well then.

13.) What looks good to you is rarely what's good for you. #SGP

14.) Caught the 3 year old with the bottle of #Flintstones vitamins & about five of them in her mouth. Jokingly serious, should I call poison control? #Ack

15.) There's always that one toy in your house that randomly goes off, buzzing with music at most inopportune time...thus scaring the sh!t outta you. #HappyHalloween

16.) Is fairly certain that Mexican food is the most guaranteed meal that my "some times picky" kiddos love to eat. #RiceAndBeansFTW

17.) "Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.) Is it just me or has this week not flown by with a quickness? Can I get a witness? Amen. #ReadyForTheFreakinWeekend

19.) So my fortune cookie at dinner tonight had absolutely no fortune. What does that mean!? #MommyWantsAnotherCookie

20.) Fact: Halloween Express store > Halloween Spirit store.

21.) So we met with Abby's teacher (Mrs. Philbin) this week since it's time for the Parent/Teacher Conferences at her school. Her teacher reported that she knows all her prayers, that she is reading using her "trackers" (fingers to point at each word) beautifully and very carefully, that her math skills of sorting and classifying are moving along, and that she tends to be "shy and tender." Also, she told us that Abby and Mrs. Lawrence (teacher's assistant) like to call each other, "Doctor Douglas" and "Doctor Lawrence" because Abby always goes to her if she needs a bandaid or ice for some sort of ailment and like to help each other. We thought this was pretty funny because we know our Abby and she can milk a situation if need be. Lol. We're so proud of you, sweet girl. Love you forever.

22.) Sweet baby Jem-Jem had her Newborn Follow-Up Clinic last week. She is progressing right on track, however the audiologist did notice a bit of hearing loss. She noted that there was some fluid in her ears due to some congestion from a mild cold so we go back in about a week for another hearing test to rule out the loss once the congestion clears up or to determine if it's something more serious. Fyi: It's highly common for babies who were on ECMO to have had some hearing loss and is correctable with surgery. Will keep you posted on this outcome, but prayers are always welcomed.
