I want to thank everyone for their sweet comments, words of encouragement and stories about my last post. We are in the trenches of this life together and we need to remember that. Our lives are not meant to be picture perfect Pinterest and Facebook posts. Whew! Thank goodness! All that perfection would be, well, boring!
We survived Sweet Pea's birthday party last weekend and it was a blast. I cannot wait to share it with you! Bless her heart though, she woke up on Saturday, the day of the party with an earache. She is a trooper though and we loaded her up with Advil and pain-killing ear drops and the party went on! She took a little break in the afternoon, but kept on with the fun. That night was a different story and when we rolled into the doctor's office on Sunday morning, my baby had a middle ear and an outer/swimmer's ear infection. The doctor prescribed pain meds because of the agony she was in. Yes, I know, please don't call CPS. I have learned my lesson and I feel terrible enough. I was also up with her for two nights and have paid the price with no sleep.
I for one am ready for the fourth. Are you? I love to celebrate our Nation's birthday; neighborhood parades and block parties, cook outs, friends, family and fireworks! I thought I would share a few snaps of our front porch and dining room table decked-out in red, white and blue. Have a safe and happy holiday!
