Just a short 15 years ago to the day I was in a terrible state. Frantically running this way and that making sure everything and everyone were in place and looking perfect, and then it started to rain and not just any rain but a downpour complete with thunder and lightning. Stupid weather men/women had been telling me for a week that this would not happen!
I thought is was aweful luck at the time, but my outdoor wedding was moved last minute to the hotel that my Aunt owned a florist in. Everything else went off without a hitch except for the fact that I forgot my shoes and jewelry in the move from one venue to the other, and my groom was 15 mins late for his own wedding. My Aunt let me borrow her shoes before going down the aisle to save me from the dreaded barefoot and pregnant aisle march (Yes pregnant).
Today while we should have plans to go out together and celebrate, we are instead just exchanging gifts and having a quiet (fingers crossed) dinner at home. Allergies and sinus infections doesn't allow much else for me.
I have spent the last 2 days with medicine head from the sudafed and trying to stop the deluge of produce and crackers my little guy keeps trying to take from the kitchen to my room. I think maybe we should buy each other a super wear free sheet set for the bed that can stand to be washed once or twice a day everyday.
While I haven't done a lot of floortime in the last couple of days because of feeling crummy I did take the opportunity to test him on his favorite new word ("No" with head shake) when asked for a popsicle from the freezer.
He asked for "Yewo posicle"
He stares at me and smiles.
I show him a red one, "Red, popsicle?"
I show him a green one, "Green popsicle?"
He withstood 3 more colors and responded "NO" without any meltdowns and when I showed him the yellow popsicle he shook his head "Yes" !! So even tho I am not on my "A" game of administering treatments he is still showing me progress. He never stops amazing me.
Now if we could just get his older sister to say "No" when he gives her the puppy dog eyes, rubs his chest (sign language) and says "Pwease".
