yippee-yi-yo, it's my birthday! some little character on one of Scout's apps says that and Scout hits it over and over every time he plays it. haven't done much today, i'm actually still in my pajamas and Scout's taking a nap. yesterday was a bad weather day. Scout went to G and P's while k-dogg and i went to the eye doctor, lunch, and the movies. k-dogg wears contacts, so they make him come in for a check up once a year before they'll refill his prescription. i just needed my glasses adjusted because some little boy likes to grab them and throw them as fas as he can when he's tired or mad at me. our favorite vietnamese food place is only two blocks from the eye doctor and we aren't in that part of town very often, so we went there for lunch! yum! then we finally got to see the avengers! we missed captain america and thor in the theater and caught up on dvd in the past month. the avengers was awesome! never have been a big fan of iron man, but i've liked the hulk since i was a little kid and captain america may be my new favorite. didn't know anything about him when i dressed Scout for halloween, but he's cool. now i'm ready for the amazing spiderman and the dark knight rises. my guys got me a HUGE harry potter book for my birthday...if Scout doesn't end up being a geek...i'll be very surprised!
not really, we're not celebrating cinco de mayo too much. well, scout and i aren't. k-dogg is going out with friends to watch the mayweather fight, but i don't think he really cares what they're doing, he's just excited to get out. scout started running a fever wednesday afternoon. we weren't sure what was wrong, since he always holds his ear when he's tired and he seemed to be getting a new tooth. thursday morning, gram texted me at work and told me to call his doctor. so, i worked two hours thursday morning and then left to take scout to the doctor. they tested him for flu, it was negative. the doctor said his ears were clear and that he probably had an upper respiratory infection. scout looked miserable all day thursday. we went back to gram's and he wanted to do nothing but be held. i stayed home with him yesterday so he could sleep in. he looked much better, but still pretty puny and pale. and, ohmygoodness, he has been a momma's boy the past few days! poor k-dogg got up with him this morning, but as soon as he saw me, he actually jumped off the couch and ran to me! he's taking his amoxicillin like a big boy, and he's not running fever anymore, but he gets run down and grumpy pretty easily and he's not eating much. he also cut a new tooth today. i got a swing for him this afternoon. we set it up at my mom and dad's and let him try it out. he loves swinging, normally, but he wasn't too thrilled and wanted out. i got him out, and blood just poured out of his mouth...new tooth! that would explain some of the grumpiness and not eating! he's been asleep for the past 2 hours, so i'm hoping he'll be able to sleep tonight! if not...it may be a long night. outside of scout news, nothing much is happening. i got a haircut and changed my hair color. we now have less than a month of school! not much is happening this coming week, then everything goes bonkers! can't wait!
i'm a Christian, wife, mom to the most awesome kid...ever, daughter, sister, texan, teacher, survivor of my grandparents :), niece, cousin, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, individual that was probably born in the wrong time. i live in a too-big for me house with my husband and our son and some people think i'm spoiled because my mom cleans our house. but, actually, i was spoiled way before that! i teach 4th grade ela and texas history...yes, that means the dreaded staar test! i like being just a little too weird for people around here, taking pictures, modpodging everything, shopping, and music! (Scout has changed most of my interests, hobbies, and free time!)
