3. On Tuesday Alaina had her 5 year check up at the doctors. I made the mistake of telling her about it the day before. Because of course her first question was if she was going to get a shot. I couldn't lie to her; she did need a couple of boosters before kindergarten. We're also a little behind on the chicken pox vaccine. So when I said yes, she just cried really sad tears. But then was pretty brave about it for the rest of the day and the day of the doctor's visit. I didn't tell her she needed THREE shots, so of course she cried hard during the first and second shot. Then we told her to hang in there, because she just had one more left. "ONE MORE????" she cried. Breaks a momma's heart. But now she's protected, and we all got Chick-fil-a for lunch that day.
4. The first week in June is a magical week, because it's the week that Alaina's and Lee's birthday burgers at Red Robin coincide. So it is the one time a year that our family gets to go to a sit down restaurant. We went on Wednesday, and it was actually a fairly pleasant experience. Joya was old enough to be entertained by the crayons, and Bria only cried after I was done eating, so I could manage her until we were ready to leave. It's the good thing about being a poor young family; going out to eat really IS a big treat.
Welcome summer, eh?
