I had a busy and fun day. To start off, I got to watch my nephew and niece, Ty and Ellie while Beth went to the dentist. After Blake got out of school he came over too and Beth took Matt out to eat for his birthday. (Happy Birthday little bro!) I had so much fun with them. They had me laughing so hard, even when I should have been correcting them.
Here's a cute picture of the 3 little ones playing together. This was when the boys were "cooking" for each other. Aiden asked for chocolate milk and Ty said "No, but you can have some chicken bones." They just kept me in stitches the whole time. I loved every minute of it.
After they left and my mom took Aiden, I headed over to school to drive Noah's class on their field trip to the pumpkin patch. Lucky for us the rain stopped but it was chilly and WINDY!!! They all still had so much fun though and were so cute.
After school, all 3 boys had dentist appointments. Drew and Noah got the all clear. This was Aiden's first dentist appointment. I was so mad at myself because I had put the camera on its docking station after the field trip and didnt grab it for a picture of his first checkup. I had the cell phone with the camera but there was a huge sign that said No Cell Phones Beyond This Point. So when the dental assistant walked out, Todd snapped a photo and then snapped one more during his checkup. Now if we could only get a years worth of pictures off of our cell phone.
Turns out Aiden has a cross bite. The one side of his mouth his teeth line up but on the other side, the lower part sticks out further than the top ones. He said all we can do now is keep an eye on it. Is that code for "you will have many years of orthodontic bills?" Hope not. He also noted that he's a bit tongue tied. We already knew that since he had problems latching on when he was first breastfeeding after birth. His Dr. never seemed to concerned and the dentist doesn't think it's bad enough to be the reason he's in speech therapy but he did say that if he ever has a surgery for tonsils, tubes in his ears, etc, we should go ahead and get it clipped at the same time. Heck, the kid just had surgery, we could have called another Dr. in and had two procedures for one anesthesia.
Well, I'm outta here. Tomorrow I drive to St Louis to pick my best friend Dianna up at the airport and then we are headed to the Mills Mall where we will meet up with Amy of Caffinated Cropper. Dianna and I are so excited to meet her, have some lunch, and hang out. Then we'll head home, hit my parents house for my brother Matt's birthday dinner. Friday morning all of us girls head for the Windy City!! We have a room at a VERY nice fancy, schmancy hotel (thank you Priceline) and we'll be hitting the NKOTB concert Friday night and enjoying the rest of the weekend just us five girls with no hubbies and no kiddos. YAY!!!!!! I hope to come back with many wondeful stories and pictures. I hope and pray nothing goes wrong.....we tend to have little misadventures sometimes too. Woohooo!! Girls Weekend!
