Our journey to the orthodontist began at 4:45 AM when Russ woke me. Within an hour we were in the car driving on snowy roads. Russ considered turning around, but they had made such an effort to get both kids’ appointments in the morning on the same day that we hated to cancel. There was a little excitement when Ladybug got carsick and we had to pull over on snowy roads to help her.
We were twenty minutes late, but we finally made it. After we got Rusty settled at the orthodontist, I ran to Target and bought a pair of pants while Ladybug waited in the car. Her original pants were adversely affected by the carsickness episode. We made it back just in time for her appointment.
Rusty and Ladybug now have braces and rather sore teeth, but we assure them it will be worth it.
We arrived home to find Boo and her friend having a lovely afternoon. With Sweet Pea’s help, they made the cutest cake and were so proud to show it to us.
Boo loved her birthday and especially enjoyed the twin baby dolls we gave her. She has told me at least four times that they are her favorite present ever. She named them Edmund and Gaylia, after a special baby we know and one of her grown up cousins. These are not fancy, expensive dolls, yet she is enjoying them so much. It makes my heart happy to see it.
