A Busy Day

Friday turned out to be a long day of various odd jobs, errands, and appts. One of which was G's 3 year check up.

Before we could leave the house we had to look our best.

Proper foot wear is always a must.

We wouldnt get very far without this.

In Illinois we have to pump our own gasoline. Sadly, this means that I cant use that time to shave my legs or make my nails look pretty...but, G on the other hand, well, he likes to create masterpieces while he waits.


After we get all that taken care of we make our way to the Dr. We get all settled in and they call us back to the exam area. He listens very intently to the directions.


Even tho he listened...Im not sure he really understood what she was actually going to do.

This isnt so bad.


Ill stand here, but just remember, Im watching you.

Please let me be tall, please let me be tall....

He got to look at umbrellas and houses and apples.


The lent him a lovely gown.


And now we wait...for the Dr to come in.


His appt went really well. He passed with flying colors. He talked to the Dr about the fact that he always had to wear his helmet when he rides his bike, that his mama always makes him wear screen(sunscreen) when he plays outside, and that he really likes fruit salad. Oh, and that soda is not a good idea for big boys because its too spicy.

We said our goodbyes, packed up our stuff, and made our way to the van. After we got loaded up and were finally on our way back home, G says to me, "Mama, may we go home now? Im sleepy." Sure thing, big guy.....

How is it that he's three already?

I totally understand wanting that nap after a long day of errands and a Dr.'s appt. Too bad I can never fit one in. :0(

My favorite is the top picture of him brushing his hair. I need to remember to do that before I go out next time. Maybe then I'll get a cool gown at the drs. like he did. When I went just a few weeks ago, all I got was a plain white one with some boring small pattern.

Hi farmgirl, you gals are careful about talking about food around me, riiiiight. I don't think Marcee actually makes that many chocolate cakes.
Great, now I need cake.

Melody: Thanks!

Mim: I can tell you how hes three already.

Sue M.: Hi! Im glad that you are commenting! Thank you. His days wear me out, too. Yes they do.

Ang: Yep, it was a good appt. He had quite a lot to say to the Dr.

Penny: Hey you. Hows that chicken poop coming? The stand up measuring was new to him. Up till now they always laid him on the exam table and used a measuring tape...

Danni: Yeah. It had to have been the hair. Altho, now that I think about it, maybe it was the shoes. Your gown wasnt nearly as stylish. Hey. Have you made any of those fantastic cinnamon rolls lately?

Michelle: Yeah, well, my uterus did that about 3 years ago. Mmmmm...cake. My house had lots of cake on Sat. Chocolate cake, vanilla cake, AND strawberry cake.

J.J.: That was a long blink! Hows GiGi?
