Apparently, I have been cooped up behind a desk just "looking" at some of these nice Spring days from my office window entirely too long. And, yes, I've been envying some of you of your nice weather days. I finally got to "participate," too, today and I loved it!!
Here are some pics from our morning at the park:
I had on my "Got Nick?" t-shirt and Lauren told her mom that she wanted one! I'm a style-setter! What can I say?
After our picnic, Alise's best friend, Allie, showed up with her babysitter. The girls were estatic to see one another! They chased one another, picked flowers and chased after the squirrels they saw in the park. I had a hair appointment at 1:00, but I had promised Alise some ice-cream, so we stopped by TCBY on the way. Notice Alise's blue teeth! Alise had an ENT appointment at 3:00. She overheard me telling my hairdresser that the doctor wanted to take out Alise's tubes because they hadn't fallen out on their own yet. She cried all the way to the appointment because she didn't want her tubes taken out. I finally convinced her that Dr. D was just going to look at her ears today and that was all. Whell....Dr. D made Mommie out to be a big fat liar and I wasn't too happy about that!! He actually ended up REMOVING the vent tube in her right ear right there in his office!! He said it was about to fall out! Now, I'm not sure just how painful it really was, but Alise came out of the chair and I nearly died right there in the room! I was ticked!! She cried and kept saying, "My ear hurts! He hurt my ear!" I could barely pull myself together to pay the co-pay and get out of there! I kept telling Alise, "We'll talk about it in the car, baby!" When I finally got her to the car, I hugged her and told her that I was SO sorry and that I had NO idea he was going to do what he did. I felt like dirt. She forgave me when I told her that I would take her to the mall to ride the carousel. Of course, once we got there, she wanted to go to BABW, too, AND build a bear. I made her call her daddy and ask him and he convinced her to wait until we could all go to see her build her bear.
