Bird-Day Card

Holy Hannah, am I ever glad it's the weekend! Here is a card I made for Owen's preschool teacher last week. Easy-peasy.

So this week... it was fun. OK, fun probably isn't the word I'd use. We had dentist appointments on Monday for cleanings. I'm in the middle of a disagreement with Adam's teacher. I got some news that threw me for a loop and then some other news that was disapointing. But I won't bore you with those details. The best part of the week? Owen had a small cavity that he needed filled. So we went back Thursday to do that. He wasn't scared at all, until his cousin came over that morning and told him how scary it was how how it hurt super bad to go to the dentist! Arg! But he did fine at the appointment. Then we went to Target to buy him a new toy for doing so well(yes, I bribe my children. I don't have a problem with it and I don't want to hear if you do. No offense.) and while we were walking around looking at toys, he had been chewing on his numb lip. All the sudden I looked down and he was covered in blood! It was awful. And still numb so he didn't even know he was bleeding.

And now he looks like this-

He's mad that I took a picture of his lip. It hurts. He's cranky. And I don't blame him. I'd be cranky too. Wait, I am cranky too. His lip is still very swollen. It looks like someone punched him in the mouth. Poor kid. So, between dealing with dentists, Adam's teacher(who apparently thinks I'm an idiot), trying to keep the house picked up, receiving upsetting news(that I won't go into here) and everything else life has thrown my way this week... I'm tired. I won't be posting again until Tuesday's challenge. I hope you understand. :)

Now I'm off to clean off my desk so I can start on my project for Tuesday. And maybe get at least one more project done to show you next week. But at this point I'm not promising anything. :)

Pin It!
