Random thoughts!

1-First of all...let me say that A few yrs ago, I would have thought that it would be impossible for one family to have this much laundry in just 3 days!  Can we say...REDICULOUS!!!

2-We were heading to our favorite restaurant last week.  I was outside buckling up the baby and waiting for the other three to join me in the car.  Easton walks out of the house just like this.  Snow boots and his shirt inside out! Oh and his shorts were on right, but his undies were later to be found on backwards resembling very close to a thong!  I'm telling you, he is one crazy kid!

3-Last week I volunteered with some other moms at Parker's school for Johnny Appleseed Day.  The kiddos did all kinds of apple related stations including making apple turnovers.  

It was a fun day meeting all of Parker's classmates!  They were all super sweet! I have been assigned as the "Room Mom" this year, so I am going to be spending a good bit of time with all of them.  I am excited to help even though I know it will be a lot of work.

4-I sent out lots of samples this past weekend for my new Skincare consultant venture with Rodan and Fields!  I so hope that people love them as much as I do!  I am in love with these products, and also would love to be successful as well!  The thought of having a little extra running money is great, too!

5-I have been doing the regimens every morning and night.  The first night honestly was such a treat.  The kids were was like 9:15...and I decide to pamper myself with a hot bath...all to myself!  No kids there to beg me to get in!  I shaved my legs, did my mask and the rest of the regimen.  I even painted my nails after I was done!  It was so relaxing.  Normal I feel like washing my face is a hassle, but it feels nice "working on me" and giving myself some tlc.

And I do think it is paying off.  I think my skin looks refreshed already!  And it hasn't even been two weeks!
6-Anyways...enough about Skincare.  Aren't these green eyes so very green and pretty!  I was taking this picture at Parker's request.  He wanted to see his scar on his eyebrow.  I was thumbing through my pics the other day, and realized how green they looked.  And upon further investigation of my wasn't just the green shirt.  They were this way in all of the pics!

7-And lastly...we did get to take Parker to the donut shop!  He loved it!  But not as much as I did!  Or better yet.. Not as much as Brooks!  He ate 6 donut holes and some of mine!

So there it is...some random thoughts.  Hope you enjoyed!

Big boo boo

So...I'm at work on Sunday when I decide to check my phone for any emails or missed calls/texts.  When what to my wondering eyes do I see?  But a picture of Parker on a stretcher.   I always have my phone in my pocket, but I obviously have to keep it on silent when I'm working.  I missed Stevens 3 calls in a row while I was tending to a patient.  Needless to say, that picture made my heart skip a beat.  Not a fun sight to see! Especially knowing that I had to stay at work nursing other patients when the only one I really wanted to tend to was my sweet stitched up Park Park!  

So the story goes, Parker was running into the little metal green house at my parents house.  His front leg was already in, but as he was bringing in the back leg, he tripped and fell on a metal ledge.  

Steven said that Parker was crying, like a blood curdling scream.  He found him with this lovely gash.  

When Parker retold the story to me once I got home from work, his words were, "all I saw was meat and blood".  Then he asked, "why did God make us out of meat?".
Steven said that he was soooo brave at the hospital.  Didn't cry at all!  He even wanted to watch the Dr. Stitch him up!  Maybe he will be a nurse like his momma one day!

He was so happy that I let him skip school the next day.  I was worried that he would be to rough at recess and have a good chance of opening it back up again.  He was even happier though to retell the story to all of his teachers and friends at school today.  He barely made it out of the car when I hear him telling his librarian all about it.

He is now on the mend...getting sponge baths, and treats from both sets of grandparents...(Thanks again guys!). The stitches should be out in 7-10 days from Sunday.   Pray that the stitches don't adhere too much to the skin as it heals.  I will be the one to take them out when ready.  Luckily there are only four stitches.  The rest is dermabond and steri-strips!  I'll keep you posted!
