Museum

Reeeeeally close to our house, there is a museum that has an awesome children's section.  We went one morning when my mom was in town, but as is common - it was crowded so my kiddos were glued to my side and having NO fun.  Thanks to a tip from a mom who had been there before, though, we went and found a little childrens area in a different section.  What a hit!! It was an old country house and chicken coop set up, and they played and played.  I watched and watched - and my dear mama chased and chased Fletcher through the museum while the others played.

Four

Oscar is four!!  We postponed his celebration for a week while we were waiting on me to make it home from Florida, but it was worth the wait.  He had a pirate ship cake - and we learned an important lesson: four individual candles is far superior to one candle shaped like a four.  Now we know!  I promised that next year he would have  f i v e  candles - and no number five - and he seemed to be okay with that.  Whew!!

(You can see his disdain at the 4 candle...bless his heart.)

Climb

A Sunday afternoon spent on tree climbing lessons - what could be better?

Ouch

I was sitting on a bed in a hotel room in Florida, holding a sleeping newborn and flipping through the (few) channels hoping for something entertaining to magically appear when my phone rang - it was Josh.  I knew it wasnt' good, because we had just been texting and I knew he would only call if something was wrong.  Cue panic.  "Hey.  Hugo fell off on the patio and busted his head open.  I'm going to have to take him in to get it glued shut."  WHAT?!?!?  Seriously?!?! While I"m thousands of miles away and he is home with our FOUR children - alone - of course one of them needs glued shut.

I have him hold pressure on the wound for 10 solid minutes with no peeking (tip from my brother and sister in law, the wound care experts) - and tried to call my mom.  No answer.  My sister.  No answer.  My brother.  No answer.  My sister in law.  No answer.

Finally, called Josh back and asked how it looked.  The bleeding had quit, and he was now firmly on the fence about the glue.  I called my friend Jenna over and had her asses the stiuation and had Josh send me a photo - I thought it looked okay to butterfly and skip the ER - she agreed.  Crisis averted!!!

Baseball highlights on ESPN and wearing his 'glovah' for a bit and he was settled.  Whew. 

24 hours later.  I was sitting on my bed in a hotel room in Florida, holding a sleeping newborn and flipping through the (few) channels hoping for something entertaining to magically appear when my phone rant - it was Josh.  I immediately answer with a 'Who's bleeding?' - to which he replies "Oscar."

Well crap.  He and Mae were playing chase downstairs during rest time, and he fell backwards and hit is head on our chest freezer.  No question that he needed staples.

(Seriously - so thankful an iPad happened to still be in the car!)
I hung up, called my friend Jenna again (bless her heart) - and praise the LORD she was home.  Josh dropped the little boys off with her and headed to the Children's urgent care with Oscar and Mae.

Three staples later, he's good as new. 

24 hours later.  I was - just kidding.  That was thankfully the end of that little head injury streak!
