-HH and I completed our CPR/First Aid certification course last night. I'd totally forgotten how hard it is to sit and listen to someone lecture for 4 hours straight, two nights in a row. We did get to experience a little hands-on action, but mostly we sat...and sat...and sat.
HH and I had not been out alone together in a couple of months, so the classes kind of felt like dates. Of course we were surrounded by 10 other women and had our mouths on the dummies instead of each other but, hey, sometimes you have to take what you can get;)
-Reilly and I were engaging in a little verbal sparring one morning this week as we were driving to school. Griffin piped up and said, "Nice combat, mom."
Reilly and I looked at him kind of funny, and Reilly said, "What are you talking about?"
He replied, "You know, combat, like a dis."
I looked at him and asked, "Do you mean comeback...nice comeback?"
Yep, that's what he meant. Out of the mouths of babes...
-While subbing last week, I confiscated a cell phone from a kindergartner. You know, one of those "too cool for school" little boys in the baggy jeans and over-sized shirt.
One of his little friends ratted him out.
I'm pretty sure it was his mom's. The incident totally cracked me up, as well as the ladies in the office. They weren't surprised.
Things like this are the reason why I love subbing. No two days are ever the same...I love the unexpected!
-My grandmother did not actually have a heart attack as I last reported. My mother wanted me to clarify this. Just so you know, I'm not great with ths medical info., so anything medically related that I pass on to you, you may want to take with a grain of salt. Ok, EVERYTHING I tell you you may want to take with a grain of salt, but that's beside the point;)
Anyway, my grandmother's heart had stopped...she coded. On the upside, she is now doing pretty well. She's still in the hospital, but she's out of ICU. Also, she doesn't seem to be as confused, she's eating well, and she's pooping on her own...always a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.
-I forgot to tell you about Reilly's tooth saga last month. She lost a total of three teeth in one day. Ok, she actually only lost one of them naturally...the other two were pulled at the dentist's office.
While we were on our shopping trip for Syd's birthday, Reilly started complaining that her tooth felt funny. Her tooth had a small brown hole on the outside of it. A few minutes later, she was holding a small piece of it in her hand.
I took her to the dentist the next day, and he informed us that this is totally normal. Baby teeth often start to weaken and break before they actually fall out. Did you know this? I didn't.
He gave her the option of letting the tooth fall out on its own, or letting him pull it. She opted for the latter, and he took the tooth next to it as well (it was loose, too).
I had never seen a tooth pulled, and imagined him bringing out these huge pliars to do it. That's not the way it happened. He took a little pick-like instrument and actually chiseled the teeth out. It was very interesting...especially since it wasn't happening to me;)
That evening, Reilly lost a third tooth on her own. Unfortunately, the tooth fairy didn't have any cash on hand, so poor the poor girl had to wait 3 days for him (yes, our T.F. is male) to make his appearance.
-I always find it very interesting to find out how people get to my blog. Here are the latest searches that I got a kick out of:
1. First grade teachers with tongue piercings
2. chicken breasts + women
3. Bert and Ernie + adult :o
4. dog breed in jo dee messina i'm alright video
-Sydney's foot grew two sizes over the summer. Do you want to know how I discovered this? Before her birthday (9-2), she casually mentioned that she would like to spend some of her birthday money on new Shox. When we went on her birthday shopping excursion, we hit Lady Footlocker. They measured her foot and it measured a size 8. The shoes that she had been wearing for the last 6 months, were a size 6.
I turned to her and asked her how long that she had been wearing them like that, and if they hurt her feet. She said that whenever she put them on, her toes would go numb but after that she couldn't feel them anymore, so it was ok. WTH????????
-Hope everyone has a great weekend. TTFN
