Take a good look at the line-up of rubber boots.
As Auntie and I were looking UP at the soles of these six feet, we realized that two girls were wearing one of each others shoe.
That explains a lot because the other day Sue was telling me that one "didn't fit quite right".
Auntie told me that Cousin E complained of the same thing this morning. How many size 11's are there laying around anyway?
I guess it's time to mark every pair of boots.
I've actually gotten outside this year (as opposed to last year when I was 7 months pregnant and as big as a beached whale) and started building a tree fort together with the Buglets. If I may boast, it looks to be an elaborate affair. Those Forest People are hard workers when the air is tickled by sun:-)
Other news in the life of Me: I joined the ranks of the Old (notice that's spelled with a capital O?).
I received my first (and Please Lord, my last) Root Canal yesterday. Can't say I'd rather be in labor, but if I WERE in labor, I wouldn't rather have a Root Canal.
My dentist and his staff was wonderful. It's just that I have lots of ways I'd rather spend three hours alone. Combine that with scraping your nails on a chalkboard for that length of time...
I'm pretty sentimental. I wasn't prepared to part with that tooth - I mean, it's been a part of my life for nigh on 30 years!
Picture it this way:
If I had been handed 1700 dollars and given three hours ALL BY MYSELF to spend it any way I wanted, I believe I can say with certainty that a Root Canal wouldn't have been at the top of my list.
Scratch that. It wouldn't have been on my list. Period.
Now that I've complained sufficiently I have to add how thankful I am that I am not a dentist, and that there is someone else willing to fix my teeth before they become serious problems, topping that with an amazing husband who watched six children for over three hours and BOUGHT me that Root Canal. (I bet he could think of some better things to do with that time and money as well).
On a side note, you girls that are having babies: TAKE YOUR VITAMINS! My cavities showed up all of a sudden in the last two years and my theory is that babies are hard to make. I think my body put up a protest about using any more Calcium for teeth when those Buglets needed it more. All in all I think my body made the best decision and put it where it counted most.
So that's my plug for prenatals. Take them. Root Canals are not fun. ;-)
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
