Uncouth Tooth

DH has a bad tooth.
Well actually it's bad under the tooth. An abscess. Eek!
Apparently it's under a tooth that already had a previous root canal.
DH said three Dentists came in to look at his X-rays because they couldn't figure out how the infection got there.

He ended up having to take off work due to the pain. :(
Three prescriptions and about 36 hours later and the pain is finally subsiding.
We're not done with Dentist appointments though, they have to wait until the infection is gone before they can do anything with the tooth so this will drag out into next month.
Vivian kept telling him "Don't worry Dada, once it comes out, the Tooth Fairy will bring you money!" 

I've been so busy the past couple days running everywhere it seems.
Yesterday especially.
After I drove DH to his early Dentist appt., the girls and I went to Walmart to pick him up some high-calorie shakes because he couldn't eat anything with his mouth hurting.
Then when we left there, we came close to a white SUV that was going the WRONG way in the Roundabout.
The guy was pretty freaked when he realized his mistake. I'm not sure how he got back out.
All that was before 9:30!
Then we got home and found most of a bottle of apple juice had spilled into one of the girls bags and was dripping everywhere...
Sticky everywhere...

DH hadn't even been able to talk much so it helps that we've been married so long that I knew all his information to give and can basically figure out what he was trying to tell me.
Vivi was watching me trying to figure out his gestures yesterday and finally she ran up to him.
"Dada! This means Yes! She vigorously nodded her head.
"Dada! This means No!" She shook her head.
"Okay? That's how you do it!"
Lol, love this kid!

In the afternoon, a storm came through, and a tree fell down blocking our street.
That was despite Vivian's song that the..."Rain, Rain, go away. All the way to Canada or some other far away country."  She was making up this little song while we were driving.:)
Thankfully we didn't lose power!
Crazy day!

Shiloh has been accumulating her own injuries. On Monday, she bumped her head on the dining room table which I wasn't too concerned about because the table is on sliders and moves pretty easily.
Though it did hurt, it didn't bruise or swell....though she was convinced it was swelling until I had her feel her other temple.
Ta da! They match!

On Tuesday, she banged her knee on the dining room chair while jumping/bouncing/hopping into the seat.
(whatever way she was trying to sit down, it wasn't just calmly sitting down for sure)
She makes certain our "Disney Princess" ice pack gets a lot of use.
No swelling or bruising again, but she was again sure that her knobby knee was just not right.
Until....Ta da! 
I pulled up her other knee so she could see it was equally bumpy.
Her face was priceless. lol

Today is Wednesday. Today I have her bandaged in bubble wrap. ;-) 
Well, it's an idea, but probably wouldn't help anyways. Lol

Birthdays and Baby books

How quickly seven years can pass!
My baby just turned seven!

The night before Vivi's birthday, Shiloh lost another tooth.
So I pulled out their baby books because I keep a chart to record their lost teeth in their baby books.
Well, the girls loved reading through their baby books and laughing hysterically at what their first words and sounds were etc.
Such a fun way to celebrate a birthday. :)

Vivian asked for chocolate cupcakes, but her ideas for decorating the cupcakes changed by the second. So I looked at the Wilton website....which is just awesome.
And it gave me a ton of ideas.
I thought I could attempt rainbow frosting, but maybe just start with just three colors since it would be my first time.
Vivian loved the suggestion of rainbow frosting, but she insisted on four colors.
gulp.
Okay, but lets try to make them light colors, like pastels so my errors are not so glaring.
Ta da!
The rainbow frosting was soo pretty.
It gave me the confidence to try the swirl technique that I also saw on the page.
I'm overly-impressed with my new-found talents. lol

The birthday girl reading her new book.
A new series I discovered written by her favorite author. :)
She wore her favorite dress and "Princess" pin too.

The girls putting together a new Lego set this morning.
(and yes, Shiloh sits like that quite often!)
They both had a lot of fun.

Dust bunnies be gone!

We've been busy doing Spring cleaning...at least while we still have a few days left of Spring.
I've been in a deep cleaning mode.
I even pulled out the heavy piano and vacuumed behind it, and then put it right back in the same spot.
So nobody even knows how clean it is back there...which is why I am announcing it here. lol
Yesterday DH and I moved a bunch of furniture around and cleaned under and behind everything.
Thankfully he caught my cleaning bug too, either that or he's worried about me getting squished under a dresser....
It's making me buff. I have biceps again!

Vivian is always eager to help with cleaning. She likes to wear her over-sized rubber gloves and dip a paper towel into a soapy bucket and scrub the dust of things.
Yes, I end up with a lot of drippy wet things...but at least they aren't dusty anymore. ;-)

BUT what Vivian does not like is any kind of throwing things out!
She's turning into a miniature hoarder.
Shoes that she's outgrown but "likes to look at". (sorry kiddo)
Seriously, the kid has a bubble envelope that is filled with bubble wrap that she won't let me toss.
She says she likes to pop a bubble here and there. :-D

We've also been taking a lot of walks enjoying the beautiful weather.


We've also been a lot of trips to the library.
The girls have been zipping through books, heavy books.
I told them we may have to make a rule that they can only get as many books at a time, as they can carry.
Carrying both their book bags is tough!
Probably the other reason I have biceps!

The library put in this cute reading tent, a couple weeks ago.
The girls enjoy reading there if we have a little extra time.

After school lets out it won't be so serene, but we love that we have the library to ourselves most days.
Though the library is running out of books! Seriously!
The librarian mentioned that the girls keep getting books they've already read, and how I could order books for them.
We've done it occasionally before. But they read through them so quickly it almost wasn't worth the wait.
Maybe we'll find some special ones to order though.
I've started reading a bunch online and I enjoy that...but it's just not the same as a book in the hand.
