As I look forward to the coming year I generally think of things I want to do. Things I must make a list to accomplish. While I have done that, there is something esle I want. Plain and simple I want more . . . more of what I have had all along. More time [...]
I have a very special necklace that I will sometimes wear. This necklace is important to me because after Elizabeth died Bill bought it for me to symbolize her life. Babies often look like a little bean on ultrasounds and Elizabeth was no different. Not many people know the origins of why this necklace is [...]
All three kids are on the mend. Mimi has had no seizure activity since she has been off the drug she should have never had! Annie’s croup is getting better with her 3 day dose of oral steroids. Kimmie is practically all better and we are much happier. They are finally getting around to playing [...]
“Hot dog” ~ Mimi Today when we were checking out at Costco I asked the girls what they wanted for lunch. This is a very normal occurrence and they know the options are hot dog or pizza. Mimi only says maybe 10 words. She had never said hot dog before. I didn’t even really ask [...]
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Christmas Eve I called Walgreen’s to find out if Mimi could have some medicine since she was coming down with a cold and pink eye. After waiting on hold for ages they said no problem that she could have Motrin, PediaCare, phenobarb, and the pink eye drops. So we loaded her up and she [...]
“Daddy, you look like the Grinch!” — Kimberly Said to me while I was helping Sandi. When questioned, she told me that it was because I was taking down Christmas decorations just like the Grinch.
All three children were sick today. They each have high fevers, bad colds/coughs, and pink eye. Oh yeah, they are a real treat, the poor things. The baby could barely muster the energy to open up a couple of presents. The older two were more excited but boy were they were grouchy. However, all in [...]
Today we heard about a 6-8 week old kitten. She was being kept in a crate and only being taken out when they wanted to hold her. We were happy to take her in. Our children are overjoyed. She is the sweetest little thing. Here she is with each girl. There’s more in the whole [...]
“I like to put boogers in my mouth.” – Annie Said in the van on the way to Albertson’s out of the blue, for no reason, to the horror of those occupying the driver and passenger seats. We could not convince her that they were yucky. (Note to future Annie: sorry, but we’re like documentarians [...]
Annie and Kimberly have gained so much independence lately that they are becoming more and more difficult to keep in line. Annie has absolutely no fear. She wants to do what she wants and honestly that is enough for her. She will not listen to you no matter. This is something that we really have [...]
“I am getting the meatballs out.” ~ Kimberly Said when she was taking the skin off her hot dog and then chunking up the inside and eating it!
“Are we going to go in a horse carriage?” ~ Kimberly Today as I was putting Kimberly down for nap I let her know that after nap we would be going to do some Christmas shopping. She has been watching the movie Eloise at Christmastime and adores when Eloise and Nanny go Christmas shopping in [...]
Today our Neurologist called to let us know that while Mimi’s saturation of phenobarbitol was within the normal limits. The range is from 10 – 30 and she is definitely on the low end in saturation. Fact of the matter is she is having breakthrough seizures so meds must be increased. We will give her [...]
“What are they digging for?” ~ Kimberly “I don’t know, maybe to fix the road.” ~ Mommy “No, I think they are digging for worms!” ~ Kimberly We were driving down the road and they were doing some road construction and this was the conversation about the backhoe.
Next week will be Annie and Kimberly’s last day in the tandem gymnastic class. They will be moving up to the mini flyer class to be with Coach Amber. I think that this will be great for them. As much as I love to play with them at gymnastics I think it will be so [...]
Last night I decided that this would be the week we went to visit Santa. We got up and this morning seemed just as good as any. I told the girls that today we were going to go visit Santa so we had to get ready. Kimberly flipped out!!! She loves Santa and was so [...]
I have continued the tradition of my parents and buy my girls a special ornament each holiday season. The tree is my favorite decoration and I love it because it shows off little snippets of my life. I needed a place to keep track of the ornaments that belong to each girl. Kimberly: 1st Christmas: [...]
The neurologist callled this morning and wanted me to take Mimi in to get a blood test done to make sure she is not metabolizing her phenobarb too quickly. I took her right away this morning so that they would get the results quickly. She was amazing!! She did not even cry. Only fussed a [...]
I was just talking the other day about freezing time for a moment. Keeping things just as they were and then something comes along. Today Mimi had another seizure. She was doing her staring off thing and then her arms started shaking. Not violently as they did the when she had her big one but [...]« Previous Entries
