rough morning

I woke up this morning not remembering what the date was........I should have stopped right there and know it was going to be a rough day.

I thought it might be okay since Ben decided to sleep until 8:00. I was wrong.

Around 8:20 I checked my calendar... okay it's Monday the 24th ..... we have 9am doctor's appt!

No shower yet. We're still in our pj's.

We need to leave the house in no less than 10 minutes to make it there on time IF there's no traffic.

Thank goodness Ben's drank his milk already.

I throw clothes on myself and Ben and we are out the door.

We make it to appt. on time.

Ben is reasonably happy at this point.

We meet with the doctor for about 30 minutes and then it's time to go.

Apparently my son did not think this was a wise idea.

He had a MAJOR meltdown.

By MAJOR, I mean screaming, crying, hitting, and pulling my hair.

I'm sure all the other patients were thinking he was getting some kind of shot but no, my son does not want to leave the toy elephant in the room.

It gets so bad the doctor has to help me keep Ben from grabbing my hair.

I leave my bags and say I will be right back for them after I put him in the car.

Once I have Ben strapped in I turn around to see the doctor has followed me out with my bags.

I was so embarrassed I could have cried.

She reassures me that this happens to all parents of two years old.

This does little to make feel anything but wanting to run away as fast as I can.

Naptime could not come soon enough today. I hope he sleeps until his father gets home! (Just kidding, kind of...)

Hhh... hello

Halloween - It's one of my favorite holidays. As soon as I can I get all my decorations up. I've already bought Ben's costume for this year at a consignment sale but I'm not sure it will still fit my the end of October (he's growing so much!) Oh well....he can play dress up in it!

Hugs - Giving and getting hugs just makes me feel better. I especially like getting hugs from Ben.

Haircuts - I love getting my hair done. My favorite part is getting my hair washed. I could sit in the chair for hours if they kept rubbing my head!! Afterwards I was feel I need to go someplace special to show off my pretty shiny hair!

Hawaii - I've only been there once when I was in middle school but it was the best vacation we ever took. The weather was gorgeous and the water was crystal clear. We did lots of touristy things while we were there like see Don Ho sing, visit a pineapple farm, and watch a surfing contest on the North Shore. I can't wait to go back one day.

Wordless Wednesday

Ben loves to find small spaces to hang out in.

I swear I didn't lock him in there!!! :)

Grandparents - Ben is lucky to have the best grandparents ever!! They love him to pieces and he knows he can get his way with both of them. I love them because no matter what's going on with them they are always willing to help out. I feel so spoiled that they live so close. I never want to move!

- Specifically, kitchen gadgets. I have every special tool know to man for the kitchen. I could sell Pampered Chef!

Gummy candies - I love anything gummy! My two favorite are sour patch kids and gummy cherries. They were a staple when I was pregnant with Ben.

long week

Jason's been out of town since Tuesday.

Ben has a had a tummy virus since Wednesday.

It has rain almost all day everyday.

I think that I need another vacation right about now.
