A Week in Review.
One more week down for this one...or what's left of him that is.
He's down a total of 12 pounds so far....
but we still aren't talking about that.
The twins turned 10.
What. The. Heck.
I miss those babies that would snuggle up with one another whenever they could.
I love those two.
We rented a video game trailer for their party.
There are something like 14 children in
there and I am happily chit chatting on the porch above letting the
people that run it - and have a clue about video games because I do not - handle it.
Nobody broke anything this week.
No arms, no more jaws, not even a pinkie toe, no thing.
Call me crazy...but I call that a great week.
Joshua got sent to the stairs for a time out for sumthin or other.
Jordan joined him.
For no particular purpose.
Sympathy time out I guess.
And no, we don't make him sit with his head in his hands...he does that by himself.
Justin competed in a battle of the book competition and his team ended up with 2nd place.
They award 1st place and don't tell the rest what place they got.
And if anyone can tell me why I tend to raise my eyebrows and look like a total tool every time I take a self photog with any of my children, let me know. I'm all ears.
What drives me to do this?
Wrinkle minimilization perhaps?
This happened on Mother's Day:
Of his own accord.
It happened so fast I made him come back so I could adequately capture the moment.
Ahhhh so nice.
And justsoyaknow, in the spirit of honesty.... he didn't actually do the laundry.....but the man child at least brought it downstairs without being asked.
Of course it was 8:14 pm.....on Sunday....and he was out of clean uniforms for the upcoming week.....so I suspect he had ulterior motives.....but I choose not to think on that. :)
Found out that Jacob's plastic surgeon/oral surgeon team are booked for bone grafts for a little over a year.
This means we are going to miss that all important "window" for the graft in regards to their canine teeth making their appearance.
Any cleft parents out there have any wisdom? How important is this window? Will the graft still take? Should I find another surgeon to get it done in the window? Help!
And no....we are not adopting sweet Bo.
Sniff-sob-ugly cry-ugly cry
I was merely introducing him to an incredible family that I know that I know that I know would love that boy to pieces and give him the help, the family and the future that he needs.
Precious Alea still doesn't have a family.
Which keeps me up at night
and makes me wish my husband would spontaneously look up at me from the dining room table and say, "Hey babe, I think we should go get that girl."
I'm turning blue from lack of oxygen.
