Catching up on the ordinary

George got his first bee sting yesterday at the playground.

After my initial worry that he would have an allergic reaction (he didn't, thank goodness), I could not have been more proud of my boy.  He cried, of course, but he was a terrific sport about the whole ordeal.  By nap time, he had forgotten it happened.  That was about the time that my heartbeat slowed down to a respectable pace and I could stop checking his breathing every five minutes.



I am somewhat envious of Frances's ability to pull off the most adorable bob I've ever seen.  With good behavior comes reward--playing with Mr and Mrs Potato Head at the local Great Clips.


The kids aren't the only ones who have had a recent haircut.

He looks ridiculous, but it was very necessary.  Marshall's beard was starting to take on a life of its own.


A typical afternoon scene.

All three kids waiting at the door for Gram-E to come visit.


Another typical scene.

Frances's shoes without their owner.  I think she would be barefoot the entire day if I let her.


Frances's interpretation of Minnie Mouse.

She wanted me to send it off to Disney World as a "Thank You" note for our June visit; but they're just going to have to wait, oh, ten years or so until I'm ready to let it go.  


Post-dentist check-up milkshakes at Chick-fil-A.

I know, I know - concentrated sugar might defeat the purpose of the teeth cleaning.  But they were so good at the dentist and I so needed a giant diet lemonade to get me through the rest of the day.


A typical summer afternoon scooting down the street.

These are the moments that I am certain, and sooner than I would like, I will miss so much my heart will ache.  Thank you for letting a sappy mother share them here!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
