It is gonna be a long ass weekend....

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.

Hubby had that procedure, too. When the hospital at Travis found out we had FOUR kids, they moved him up on the list and got it done imnmediately. I was also surprised that there was anything left to snip snip, since so much kicking/head butting/smashing/etc. took place.

Instead of ice, they had us using frozen peas and/or corn. Since I'm totally cheap, the family had corn later in the week with dinner and were none the wiser (until they asked). I figured that no one had opened the bag...

Of course, I didn't eat it...

Heads up... my husband felt great the day after and way over did it. I told him this is proof that child birth is way worse than the procedure as I've never heard of a woman overdoing the day after having a baby. :) Anyway, he suffered for it for a week after. This is very common. So tell him not to over do it, even if he does feel like he's at 80%.

That said, I did what you did. I kept the kids away for a few days.

Do you have a zoo or an aquarium you can visit? I took teh kids to the zoo and the kids science museum.
