Wordless Wednesday: Birthday Card

Okay, not so wordless — This
card Angelica made is awesome. The front has a person at the top of a
mountain, a video game control pad, the number of levels beaten, and an
“LC” for “level complete”. The little person at the top if the mountain
is well drawn…but oddly looks like the grim reaper. And the back of the card has us at a birthday party. And
the inside…well, no, I don’t let her call me by my first name. But
it’s cute ­čÖé

Miss A’s Belated Age 4 Check Up

Two weeks ago, we finally got to have Miss A’s four year old checkup at the doctor. Yes, I realize she’s almost five. We had a few hurdles to jump over to get this appointment — first, getting her records from her pediatrician in Florida was harder than we thought it would be, and nobody would make an appointment unless we had them in our hands already. The first time we requested them, they never came. The second time, we got a blank CD. The third time, we finally got the CD and made the appointment…and then the fates worked against us and we had to reschedule the appointment.
