 i walked into the school room the other day to this!
nate was showing ellie how to make her letters
what caught me off guard was how tender and soft he was to her\its moments like these that gives me the boost to keep going
 i was cutting ellies school the other day, and she wanted to join me.  i snapped this pic as she said "hey!  stop that"
 she then made letters with the scraps of paper left over from cutting
we started the next lesson with her preschool. the letter T!  i am blown away by how quick she is to catch on. 
 she told me she can make the t's on her own and did NOT need me to show her how to make the letter. so i gave her the pen and she did these!  good job for your first try ellie (age 4)
 then we moved on to Popsicle sticks. she likes to make letters with the sticks. she tried to make the E from memory....first try
 then she did this when she was not satisfied! i was impressed
we skipped our party place play date this afternoon and went to the library.  joey promptly found her babies and took great care of them...

life updates!  (long)

about 5 weeks ago, i thought i had a sinus infection. my ears hurt, they rang, i was stuffed up and feeling quite a lot of pain.  i went to the dr, she put (walk in clinic) put me on an antibiotic for 10 days...

12 days later im still sick.  but the symptoms changed. i felt pain in my throat and behind my ears and like there was a huge glob of crap stuck in my i went to my family dr.  ONLY bec i had my yearly check up. i told him about the glob in my throat....he checked me out and put me on a strong antibiotic for 8 more days....

so i finish the antibiotic and im still feeling like crap. sore/loud ringing left ear and stupid glob of crap in my throat.  then i got the idea last week to go to the dentist....

for those who know me well, i have a not normal fear of the dentist.  id even say i am petrified to actual tears and scared of my teeth and dental decay.  i take redic great care of my teeth. like brushing 6 times (im NOT kidding) a day, flossing at least once and mouthwash 2 for me to call the dentist is a HUGE deal

i saw him on monday. after a routine check he saw NOTHING!  then he took a special x-ray ( like a lot of money special) and came back to show me the results

my upper left teeth (all of them!) roots have somehow (he thinks joey's pregnancy) grown INTO my sinus cavity!!! but  one tooth's roots have died, he thinks the sinus got infected and bec its in bedded into my sinus cavity it just passed the infection back and forth

so now i need a root canal! this will be my 3rd!  BUT i havent had one on 9 YRS!  i decided to face this fear and book the appointment only with him ( i totally trust this dude dentist)  i go for my root canal next thursday and ill have 6 days to heal before i go on my trip....then ill do part 2 when i get back....

AND on monday we woke up to a DEAD water heater. so we have been living for 3 DAYS with NO hot water!  i boil my water to wash dishes and shower....i am praying we can get the heater tomorrow!

ellie funny!

i was putting ellie to bed last night and she rubbed her eyes and said "mom, im NOT tired. i just have something in my eye"

i asked her what do you have in your eye?

she said "cereal. i have cereal in my eye" 


- i am terrified to have the root canal on thurs but im facing my fears....i can do this!

Oh Mel! What a life!! I'm glad Ellie likes her school, and it's so sweet to see siblings love and help each other!
Today we got snow. The girls spent most of the afternoon making snow creatures.
Katie's appointment was about 1 min long and we were told to rebook in February. Her teeth are SLOW in coming in.

So, i must have missed something...where are you going??? Can I come??
Just kidding on the second one;). Hope you'll heal in time!!
Lots of love all around,
