|Poor Little Soldier.... :-(|
I know children need their immunization shots, but our 5 year old had to get 5 yesterday! I also know the nurses are just doing their job, but after that 5th jab I could have tackled and hog-tied our 6'2" male nurse. Our little guy did great. Just a few quiet tears and sniffles that 5 new stickers cleared right up. Daddy brought him home a chocolate bar. Mama got him an ice cream cone. Sweet angel. No more 'til he's 11!
|Just before school -- One day I'll see those eyes of yours|
As our oldest son is such a private kind of guy, I don't get as many pics of him as I'd like -- but caught one of him while drinking some morning juice before school.
I ran into the 'before and after' pics I took last summer. It's still very much a work in progress...But as the ping-pong table is out of the kitchen and the motor oil out of the pantry -- I think we've come quite far indeed!
Here's what most of the rooms looked like (more or less) before I got started...I've only exaggerated slightly...
Painting all the arched ceilings was difficult as I am only 5'2 and am slightly fearful of heights.
If you can't 'fight-it' 'shrine it' is what I have to say. We'll be getting a nice new frame for that Chrysler pic soon...
My husband tried to convince our guests the other night that "It's still a bachelor home". They all burst into laughter as this was sitting above him...
We still have several pictures to put up. Boys are being less cooperative then girls though.
