From now on, Ace gets the duty...
Took the Door Man to his dr. appointment today. And not just A dr. appointment; THE dr. appointment. You know the one ... the pre-Kindergarten, you have to have 1000 shots in your upper arm and a google in your leg dr. appointment. The one where you have to physically pry the pants off your child. The one where you really start to lose it because you have had to explain to said child, in no uncertain terms, that everything will be just fine. The one where they finally get the shot, don't even cry, and then get up and say "that really didn't hurt."
From here on out, Ace will take the kids in for their shots. I am done with them. I am done being the one who physically holds the child down to administer pain to them. But maybe that is the payback for child birth.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
The nine-year-old who seems to be growing older every minute, has an opinion and a comment for everything, and has a true servant's heart.
The seven-year-old who loves the organization of things, will someday be someone's therapist because of his kind soul, and will more than likely be living with us until he is 40 years old.
The five-year-old with the 13-year-old attitude, who has a dictator's personality, asks you to watch her all the time and say "hold on" to keep your attention, and will someday come home on the back of some dude's motorcycle with 10 tatts and a body piercing or two.
The man of the house, the fixer of things, the winner of prizes, and the only person in his family to escape the South.
Doritos and Moon Pie
This damn street
Queen Bee, the Brownie
Spiders and bees and ants .... OH MY!
Well guess what?
So that story about my father in law
Am I this famous?
