It's been three weeks since our cat died and I still look in the spot where her food dish was for 12 years to see if she needs food.
Sophie will be two in 11 days. Two!! She's having a verbal explosion, learning new things so quickly, and really trying to dress herself. She is so proud when she accomplishes something, too.
I'm very happy my husband is home now. He was only gone two nights this week, and I think we did okay, but I much prefer having him at home. The next three weeks are going to be rough!
This morning I took Em to the doctor. She's had a stomach virus going around school, and didn't really need to see the doctor, but she was out of parent note days (only 5 sick days for an entire school year is INSANE, but that's another post). We had quite a shock when I called - Sophie's pediatrician (there are 2 in the practice and each girl ended up by chance seeing different ones) had a heart attack and passed away suddenly this week! She just saw him last week when she had an ear infection. Even though I know the staff was reeling (it was just two days ago) they were handling patients and the everyday business of running a pediatric practice very well. But it's true, you never can tell when something like this will happen!
Under "things I didn't know I'd have to say" - "Eyeliner is not lipstick!" Sophie found an eyeliner sample and put it on this week. Twice. Also, that stuff doesn't wash off very well with a washcloth! I had to put eye makeup remover on a Q-tip to get it off of her.
I've had VeggieTales songs stuck in my head all week long. Sophie is a new fan. It's so cute to watch her sing along, too!
