I have been busy tonight putting Alise’s name on all her Valentine’s for school on Thursday. I bought her a plastic Valentine bucket at Wal-mart for a dollar to carry all her Valentines in. Tomorrow night, I have to make cupcakes. Wednesday night, I have to ice them, as well as get all her little Valentine suckers that I made bagged up and tied with a red ribbon and stuck in the Chic-fil-a Valentine cards! I also have to get Allie and Emma’s Valentine gifts (cupcake cups that I bought at Target) bagged up and ready. So much to do!!
Alise had her first little heart break last night at church. I had gone to Wal-mart in Bastrop to shop groceries and since I didn’t get back in time, Wayne took Alise back up to the church with him to get things ready for the Lord’s Supper. Alise ended up on the playground with the rest of the kids her age and when Wayne went to get her to go home, she was upset. Obviously, they talked on the way home and Alise told her Daddy that Mallory was mean to her on the playground. She told him that Mallory had told her that she wasn’t a “big girl.” Oh, it just broke my heart!! I was ready to tell Mallory a thing or two! So, I just hugged her and told her that she was a big girl and we listed all the things she could do now that she was a big girl. That made her feel better and she forgot all about the playground incident.
I went to see my Grandmother this morning and I couldn’t believe what I saw! She was actually sitting up on the side of the bed and the therapists were helping her swing her legs back and forth. Such a change from this time last week! She is still wearing the oxygen mask, but she looks so much better. Thank you for your prayers.
Alise woke up this morning with the croup. I figured she was going to catch whatever it was that Allie had this weekend. I noticed she had an asthma/congested cough Saturday when we were playing outside. I gave her some medicine, but she really looked like she didn’t feel good today. I don’t know if it’s because she stayed up until 10:30 last night (we could NOT get her to go to sleep!!) or if she really felt that bad. I sent her medicine to school and told her not to get too hot today. I thought about the two of us skipping today, but I needed to go in to work because of month end. I figured that if she got too bad, her teachers would call me. They never did.
We resumed gymnastics tonight after missing two weeks for bad behaviour. Ms. SueAnn had the flu, so we had a sub. Alise did rather well, I was proud of her. She can turn a flip on the bar now without anyone helping her. I think I stood there for about 15 minutes while she did flips on the bar!
