This, that and the other thing

I've got a list for you, so lazy but at least it's something???
That's what I'll tell myself.

1. I took all three girls in for their dentist appointments this morning.
Adison did great, no problems, no cavities.
Then it was time for the next child, neither of the little girls wanted to go next so I bribed them, or shall I say "used positive reinforcement".
I told them that whoever went next would get a quarter, Abby took me up on that offer.
This was Abby's first actual dental appointment, she had gone with me to the other appointments but had always been too scared to do it.
Today though, the girl shocked me, she let them count, clean AND floss her teeth.
She even sat there and let the dentist come in and count her teeth.
Way to go Abby!
She did lay on me while having it all done but I declare it a roaring success.
Lee was not thrilled at all to be there, but we finally convinced her to take a step further than last time and she made it through counting, cleaning AND flossing as well. 
The girls rocked it!

2. This morning, I was awakened at dark o'clock in the morning to the feeling of something odd in my bed.
I turned over and there was little Abby, just laying in our bed, acting like she owned the place.
I promptly fell back asleep only to awaken at 7:30 to said princess's feet kicking me in the back.
K informed me that he was awakened by her head digging into his side.
We've never really had the kids sleep in our bed unless they are sick so this was kind of nice, not that I want to make it a nightly, weekly or even monthly ritual {not that I am in any way judging co-sleeping, it's just not for us} but it was REALLY nice.

3. Adison has been impressing me lately, she is maturing and just growing up.
Could someone please ask her to chill out with the growing business, I'm not ready for it yet.

4. I started watching Call the Midwife the other day and have already finished season one, so good.
I love the actress that plays Chummy, she's my favorite.

5. I got my lip balms and body butter from my friend, Anna, and I LOVE them. She's working on her website so as soon as it's up I'll let you know.

6. This parenting thing is hard work, it's so rewarding but so incredibly hard.
Abby threw a temper tantrum for about an hour on Thursday night.
Big hugs to all the mamas and daddys out there.

7. We had a small group BBQ this evening.
It was wonderful, I miss these people that God has brought into our lives.
I miss their kiddos and talking and life.
One couple couldn't make it tonight, I miss catching up.

8. I've got nothing else, I'm planning on getting a frozen coconut bar and reading a book.
I'm ready to call it a night.
Much love to you, xo
