Every once in awhile I get a glimpse of ME in my younger thing. Usually, it is in the things he says or the way he acts. Once in awhile, we capture it on film (this time with a camera phone...sorry for the grainy appearance).
He was over the moon in realizing a creation exists that features his two favorite things: pie and Chocolate. Uh oh, I think I deserve a couple demerits in that he's gone this long before experiencing the joy that is French Silk Pie. What kind of mother am I?
I was to have followed up with the doctor in 3 months...
It's been 2 yrs...
the good news is I've felt fine (which is why I blew off the follow up appt. Hey, I went to NP school: 95% of the diagnosis come from the history. Clinical exam just supports the diagnosis. Ok, so that's an attempt to justify my poor complaince but yeah...whatever).
the bad news? The nice nurse practitioner (that was thoroughly reviewing those automated records) said, while smiling sweetly, "here, how about we make that appointment today".
A week? Really has it been a week since I updated the blog?
I know yesterday was the 12th and I coulda-shoulda done 12 on the 12thbutI just wasn't that interested in doing so.
Spring Fever seems to be raging in full force here at Casade Chang.
But, I guess that's better than Swine Flu, right?
Colleen was sweet enough to post a widget that has our count-down until summer vacation starts. It's rather depressing so I won't share it here...but suffice to say I'm already done with supervising the homework, encouraging a reasonable bed time and making sure personal hygiene gets taken care of (sorry if you happen to be seated next to my stinky boys in class....showers are apparently not the "in" thing for the 9-11yr old crowd).
We all enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day...the Things gave me the best gift possible: cooperation and reasonably cheerful attitude. Sadly, Monday was back to "business as usual" and Thing One is again on video game restriction.
The more things change...the more they stay the same I suppose.....
