Take care of us? What do you mean, who will take care of us? We can totally take care of each other.
Who will open doors for us? The fans, baby.
Uhh...dude, she wants in. Whaddya think?
Results in three weeks!
Seamus is not the only one to surprise us this week...some of you may have heard that Grace hit her head on Monday and lost consciousness. At the ER, they told us she would need a CT scan.
But don't worry, they said...no sedation is necessary. We'll just restrain her.
Of course, I'm thinking what any good mother would think...PLEASE SEDATE HER!! I've seen what restrained kids look like, and it's not pretty.
But Grace rocked it...she laid right down on the table, let them strap her entire body in sheets of Velcro, and remained perfectly still staring at a Nemo sticker that I was anxiously bouncing through the air on my finger. The scan came back just fine, and she's told everyone who asks, "I got a boo-boo and dey tooka pit-cher uh ma head."
I don't know how it happened...I thought I still had a few years before my kids became braver than me! Have your kids surprised you in ways like this?
