Dear Husband had his "procedure" done today.
So as soon as his friend brought him home from the Dr. I stashed him away in the back bedroom, with shades open, towel on bed, bags upon bags of crushed ice for his "swelling", movies in the DVD player, and a hugungeous reese's pieces sonic blast. I locked him away all day. Only went in to hand fresh ice packs, and give him his pain medicine.
You do not want to have this procedure done, and be in a house with toddlers. The toddlers climb, and jump all day long. I think they crush his "business" (See Bou's post on what are they for?
) everyday anyway. So I just pretended Daddy was at work. The valium they gave him prior to procedure, had him down for most of the day, thank goodness. Dear Husband is stubborn and a terrible patient.
So it is going to be a LONG weekend. It is HOT here already, swimming weather for the kids, sandbox weather for the kids. However, due to Pink Ninja's incident has left her in a cast. She cannot be in sand or water.
This really limits our day. Today we ran errands, just to keep them busy and out of the house. We mailed some bills, went to the grocery store, had to pick up Dear Husbands drugs from pharmacy. When Pink Ninja went down for her nap, Dash and I went outside to pull weeds, and water the flower beds. We chased lizards, and found Earth Worms. I let Dash jump in the mud, and put mulch in the birdbath, so I could pull unsightly weeds. We had fun.
Dash is hilarious. His speech is very echolaic, and he has a huge vocabulary. Today, he wanted to play his "leapster". A small handheld computer, with learning software. (We bought it when we drove across country). Anyway, he asks to play his "leapster". I tell him no, he had already played it in the morning. He says this "Mom, NOT practicing leads to mediocrity". Seriously, this is what my 3 year old says to me. I think I need to start leaving a quote from him every day, he is hilarious.
