A couple of weeks ago Maddie and I went shopping to find her a new winter coat. She decided months ago that she 'hated her coat'. So I was sure at this time of year we'd find a deal. We went to the mall, and we started our journey to find a coat on sale. Well, she wanted something in every store we entered. I told her no in every store telling her she was going to get a coat. She didn't want a coat, of course. I was getting on her nerves and she was really getting on my nerves! Our last stop was Dillard's so we headed to the children's department. As I looked at coats she looked at clothes, she loves clothes right now. Well, I found the perfect pink coat and she found the perfect shirt, purse, dress, socks...you get the picture! I kept telling her no, you're getting this cute coat. Well, my sweet, in need of a major nap, daughter proceeds to scream and throw a fit. I was mortified so I grabbed her by the arm and swatted her bottom. I was sure security was going to come and throw me in jail for correcting my child! Alas they did not. Maddie, of course, straightened up and tried on the darling little coat I found for $14.99! But do you know what I did? She found a cute top an sale and I BOUGHT it! What is wrong with me? I had totally encouraged that bratty behavior! I beat myself up the whole way home and decided I wouldn't give her the shirt until I wanted to. I don't know if that helped but it made me feel better about it!
The infamous top!
It's official, Guitar Hero has taken over our house, our evenings and any free time we have. Kayleigh is exceptionally good at it and is about to finish up the 'hard level' and move onto expert! Craig is playing on medium and headed straight for hard! Maddie is on medium also, it's pretty cute watching her play. I can't believe it but I have been sucked into this game as well. And I am REALLY bad at it!
Fletcher is having a good week. It started out kind of rough for him but by Tuesday he felt better. You might remember that Fletcher doesn't take anything by mouth, no food or drink. Well, before we went to the hosptial giving him water in a syringe was one of two things that would calm him down, me rubbing lotion on his face and head was the other. After a couple of weeks of giving him water his desire for it stopped. Last week he started wanting water again. Fletcher is on fluid restriction, because of his electrolyte situation. Well, he gets so mad everytime someone flushes his g-tube with water and doesn't give him the syringe. He cries and hits at you if you don't give him what he wants! It's really kind of sad! But it's for his good. We sure don't want to add to his medical problems, he has enough on his plate! Fletcher hasn't been out of his unit in over two weeks, I'm hoping tomorrow I can take him for a walk in his wheelchair. He definitely needs a change of scenery. Well, that's all for now. I hope you all have a great week!
