Today signifies the last of a few different things. Today’s the last day of my first-time ever participating in a blogathon (Post a Day in May). Today was also the last day of school for my children. It was the last day, of my oldest daughter being a middle-schooler. Much has been accomplished and many milestones surpassed, and I couldn’t be any prouder. Each of us feels accomplished in our own individual right.
Tomorrow ushers in a new month, it also bring news challenges along with it. Nothing will come that we cannot handle or at least to attempt to handle. For now though, we’re going to enjoy the fruits of all of our labor.
So long to the month of May 2012.
Today was the last full day that it’ll be just the little’s and I. Tomorrow is the last of school for the big’s and it’s a half day! The little’s and I decided to party it up one last time, before we’ll have to include the big’s in on our fun. We went to the park…….
I see you!
Zay! Look! Is that?
Wooooo! I think it is!
Let’s get outta here!
Wait one quick rock, on the rockie!
Hey! Where’d Sista’ go?
I’m outta here! I said one QUICK rock! C’mon slow poke!
No one said anything about vulture birds lurking around the kiddie playscape! I need answers!
Listen, hear and process the valuable lessons that are being handed down and over to them.
Nothing satisfies a mother/parent more than knowing that they’ve efficiently equipped their children to handle the ways of this world!
She really believes that she can swim!
Proud mommy moment, yet it’s also one of my worse nightmares!
I just don’t want to let them down!
No parent does.
I smile to keep from crying
I pray to keep from making the same mistakes twice
Parenting is not as easy I imagined it would be
before I was a parent
Grateful that I have another chance to come closer to getting it right
It’s looking very promising!
Yesterday Baby Zayah met her 20th month of being in this world.
Today we went for a check-up to mark the occasion.
Zayah gained 3 pounds since the last visit (at 18 months) YAAAAAY!
After she was given two shots, I was instructed to give her Miralax and a Fleet Baby Enema for the EXTREME constipation. Huh?
Then I was ordered to return in one week to check how well she’s passing her bowels (which should be at least once a day, by the way)
Needless to say, my day was filled with going to the doctor’s office, sitting in the waiting room of the doctor’s office, then sitting in the examining room of the doctor’s office, sitting and waiting some more in the examination room of the doctor’s office, seeing the doctor, being given very strict orders to follow by the doctor, going on a run to the pharmacy to pick of the necessary prescriptions to carry out the strict orders, inserting a suppository in my baby’s rectum, then cleaning up all the aftermath as a result of the enema…….
it’s safe to say that turning 20 months has by far been our worse milestone!
