Mere: Bowen would like you to know that you will feel better again and that you will get rainbow Popsicles if you have to have your tonsils out.
This week Laine is going to "summer camp", she is so happy and SO tired.
Bowen and I went to the Zoo today! It was nice and cool, a perfect Zoo day.
Last week we had fun times in Abilene and even got to see Linda, Robin and Reegan for a day!
Has anyone tried to schedule a Dermatologist appointment lately? Jeez! When I called the receptionist told me they were scheduling for the second week in September. I made an appointment with the PA and got in the second week in July.
Which brings me to why I made that appointment...little bitty pimples ALL OVER MY BACK, and arms, and chest, and on and on. What is the deal! I'm 33! This is totally grossing me out! It looks terrible. I just want a magic pill that will make them all go away. Blech.

The next package was the necklace I ordered from Lisa Leonard designs. Her jewelry is so simple and beautiful. I ordered this one for myself for our Anniversary, I know I probably shouldn't buy my own present, but there it is.
You can see that each little medallion has Jonathan, Laine and Bowen's initial. I love it! Thanks Jonathan!
I'm really excited because Meredith and I are headed to Abilene tomorrow and Linda Robin and Reegan are going to come too! Laine and Bowen are already there, we're going to have such fun.

So we brought her back into the living room to watch baby einstein
She had found my Ipod and was jamming out to some Busta Rhymes!!! By this time Jonathan and I became a little concerned of her behavior, taking off without telling us.. her choice in music on the Ipod....very, very concerning! Jonathan suggested we give her something to eat a healthy light bedtime snack. So I pulled her up to the table to feed her in the high chair, I left for maybe 5 seconds, I heard Jonathan let out a small yelp of concern I turned around to go to her thinking she might be falling out of the high chair and........
She had pulled a Diet coke from the table and a bagel from a bagel bag and had already started munching!!!! So we got her fed finally and evidently she wanted more because she scooted over to the fridge and proceeded to open it up and get the milk out...unbelievable!!!
Well needless to say I need to clean her bottle out and clean up our kitchen!! As I was washing out her bottle I heard a small squeaking sound followed by another squeaking sound when I finally got curious I turned around and what in the world......
Blake had made stairs out of the drawers on the kitchen cabinet and had climbed up onto the counter and had opened a bag of M&M's and had probably already eaten half of the bag....What in the world is going on with this kid??? Finally we had had just about enough and I told Jonathan maybe we should just give her a bath and see if she would want to take a nap. So we went into the bathroom and I started filling up the tub...Splash ... Splash ... I really paid no mind due to the water running and such but then I realized the splash was coming from behind me....
I turned around and Blake was half in and half out of the potty!!! It was at this point we decided to stop taking pictures of what we are pretty sure CPS will get a call on!!
WE LOVE BLAKE!!!!!

The next Before and After is for my teeth. I tried Crest Whitestrips Premium. You use them twice a day for 10 days. I had taken pictures throughout but I guess they disappeared. Here is one pretty close up and then one after the 10 days. I can tell a difference, can you?

Another thing I'm super excited about is I went shopping for Laine today. That doesn't sound like a big deal however because of the whole uniform thing I don't need to buy her many clothes during the school year. I've also decided I'm not a very good shopper for her, I shop for her like I shop for me, in pieces. You see I don't have many "outfits" I buy separates that mostly involve solid colors that all can be worn together. That is boring for a 5 year old. So I went to Kohl's and Target today and got her some cute outfits! Everything I bought was on sale too! I'll post some pictures of her in her new digs after she gets back.

I am home alone, I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with myself. Tonight I went and had my toenails painted, enjoyed a chocolate shake, went shopping and was really disappointed when the Ulta by my house was closed for renovations. Got some Bath and Body works shower gel on sale for $3 and ate Chipotle because I didn't have to cook supper. Now I'm up past my bedtime because I don't have to get to school until 8:15 tomorrow!
Ok now to the story Jonathan alluded to in his comment on my last post. Monday evening Jonathan and I were scurrying around to get ready for his end of the year teacher banquet because our sitter fell through and at the last minute we got some friends to watch the kids so we could go. We had bathed the kids early and put on PJ's so we didn't have to mess with it later. Well, Bowen suddenly starts crying because he stubbed his toe. We had learned in the past that if he gets really worked up about something the result is throw-up coming out his mouth. I had believed that it was because his tonsils were really large and made him gag really easily. That hypothesis was blown out of the water on Monday night. Bowen cried and cried and cried until he barfed. Lots. Of. Chocolate. Ice. Cream. It was SO GROSS. Poor Bowen barfing, poor Laine crying over and over gross, gross, gross. I was afraid she was going to have sympathy barf so I ushered her into the bathroom and tried to distract her. Turns out she was just scared and sad that Bowen had gotten sick. The best part was we were only 15 minutes late to the dinner, we are awesome.

Here's a funny story: The evening of the blog fight between me and Jonathan, I had called and left him a message asking him where the camcorder charger was. Well, about 2 minutes later, the house phone rang and I picked it up (we don't have caller ID) and a male said "Heather" and I shouted WHAT?! in the meanest voice I could muster. The voice said "this is ____ _______" MY PRINCIPAL!!!!!!! I backpedaled as quickly as I could stating that I had just had an argument with Jonathan and I thought it was him. It was SO embarrassing and SO funny at the same time!
The other funny story is from Saturday. I took the kids to the Y to swim, well our Y pool was closed for repairs so I took them to the one a little farther away but it has a cool water park. We got there and had been playing for about 15 minutes when the lifeguards started blowing whistles and telling people to get out of the water. I was wondering why, when I saw a large turd floating in the water. Someone tell me how a turd escapes a swimsuit? I mean girl suits are tight and boy suits have the liner in them, someone had to have pooped it and then set it free. We left shortly after because they weren't going to let people back in the pool for an hour.
