A Montessori Drop-in, Pictures, a Baby and a Tooth Update.

So much business to take care of.

 I stopped by Children’s House today. I love stopping by, and I feel like I haven’t been able to stop and really observe for a long time. These babies take up a lot of time, let me tell you…

One of my favorite things that Megan does at CHMS is the African Safari. It. Is. Awesome.

I promise that on May 1st, there will be a huge safari post.

Okay, so I thought it would be a super fun idea for the class to hatch chicks! I always come up with these really great ideas….for other people to carry out. So nice. Well anyway, we went ahead and supplied the class with an incubator and 20 or so eggs.

Not one of us has ever hatched chicks before. And based on the shape and formation of this egg, I’m not sure we should be hatching chicks…

Kate-207

Oops. We’ll see in about 2 weeks if any live chickens come out of this little project.

Olive thinks they’ll do alright. She knows a thing or 2 about hatching.

Know what else I got to do today? I got to take pictures of one of the most beautiful babies. I might think this because she resembles a few of my babies when they were born. SO MUCH dark hair and perfect little features. Kate is beautiful.

Olive is so big compared to tiny little Kate.

Then I got home and was very pleasantly surprised by Sara who took pictures of my kids on Sunday…she delivered the pictures to me. Ah, they are so great!

Now for an update on Alice’s tooth.  Yesterday the kids had a regularly scheduled dentist appointment.  Weird.  Anyway, he went ahead and looked at her teeth because the swelling had gone down quite a bit.  He came out and said that they definitely needed to go right away and that I had 2 options.

(1) put her to sleep to do it.

(2) just numb up the area and do it right there.  This required a little more than just a simple numbing.  He had to put gel up there in the right spot (and with the swelling and bruising it would be uncomfortable), then inject it with numbing stuff (i’m not a dentist, ok?!).

I asked him what he would do if it was his child.  He said option 2.  So that’s what we did. Alice might be the bravest, toughest 3 year old I know.  She didn’t even flinch during all of it.  She was so brave even though it really hurt.  They pulled those 2 teeth out and now she has a hilarious and adorable smile.

The tooth fairy must have forgotten about it last night, but we are sure she won’t forget about it tonight.  I’m pretty sure she went to Kmart for a fun toy.  Pretty sure at least.
