Well guess what time of the year it is again. (and these are not all of them)
Nowhere NEARLY all of them.
Anyhow.. when I'm not being run ragged by driving people here there and EVERYWHERE, I'm complaining about my shoulder. It's still very sore but Steve (physio guy), says that my mobility has improved so that is good news. However, I'm sleeping very little because it's so uncomfortable. Only a few hours a night which for me.. is not enough. I am exhausted. I have an appointment with my family Dr next Tuesday so I'm hoping he'll give me some hard core drugs to keep this pain at bay. I can't take the Motrin, Advil etc, etc anymore because I was getting the burning of the stomach. It was worse than the shoulder pain so.... :(
I got a bit of a surprise the other day when I picked up Gabby and Mass at school. Mass came up and started holding onto my arm ..he kept looking up at me.. then hugging me. Once we started walking he announced, "I know where babies come from!". Up until now he really hadn't asked much about it. I'm a big believer in just answering these types of questions as they come up and not giving out tons of information that may not be age appropriate. However.. I guess the school figured it was time he knew. I'm not sure exactly how much he knows because I didn't really feel like talking about it on the sidewalk but it seems he knows enough. Here is a snippet of the conversation...
Mass~ I know where babies come from.
Me~ Oh ya?
Mass~ It's not just YOU, you know Mum. Dad had something to do with it too.
Me~ Mmmm hmmm...
Mass~ Yeah. The man has something called a "smerm" and the Mummy has ... ummm.. ummm (he can't remember egg)... something else.
Me~ An egg?
Mass~ No. Something else.
I almost didn't correct him on "smerm" but then figured I probably should.
So, apparently the cats out of the bag at our house!
Tony and his date had their prom~
Aren't they just the cutest kids ever? (She was wearing about 3 inch heels here by the way-she is just a peanut!)
Graduation is in less than 2 weeks. I can't believe he is done!
Before I go.. I just have to show you the candle holders I found at Goodwill a few weeks back. I've always wanted a Circle of Friends candle holder and I actually found 3 of them! One large and two small. I got all 3 for $11 which I thought was great!
