whenever you have something going on...lots of plans...very busy...
something always happens to throw you off and slow you down.
thursday night lauren cut her leg open on the trampoline.
it's unclear what occured...but stitches were required.
craig is not a doctor (he just plays one on the blog)
but he did his best to pull the cut together with butterfly bandaids
until we could take her to the dr. in the morning.
and by "we" i mean ME.
we sat for a few hours at the doctor
which actually turned out to be very relaxing...i read my book.
and there were no tears even with a bunch of stitches...she thinks there are 8...we forgot to ask.
she let me hold her hand....that is a big deal.
here is a lovely shot.
i was trying to catch the beautiful light that was blasting in my kitchen while i was stretching.
then i came across this pic from new year's eve.
i think i took it...but i don't remember.
and this one...all the moms trying to figure our phones to text each other...we are dorks. (new year's)
my kids don't know it but i have presents for them each day i am gone.
nothing major...candy for movie might...cd for the car rides to school...new underwear...
but they will love a little note form me each day.
at least i think they will.
