poppin' cherries galore


It has been a fun filled week of firsts in my humble abode. First and foremost, the lassie is back with a new and improved lap top. I have been without one for the past three days. This new one is so pretty and shiney. It even has a camera... watch out world - girl with gadgets on the loose! It has Intel or runs Intel, whatever or whichever, it runs. AND for the first time I have (or can see) all the stuff that is supposed to be on the top of my blog post box. Before I just had the pictures for spell check and to add a photo and NOTHING else. No wonder I was so confused by Bloggers directions for things - I couldn't see the tabs they wanted me to push. The blogging world is now a better place! sigh.....

As for Drake, well his first is not so good. Yesterday he brought home his first white slip from the principal. Guess my little friend got written up on the bus for standing and had to have a pow wow with the principal. He was terrified to give it to me - can't see why - cough cough. I guess if he is going to get sent to the principal's office I would prefer improper bus etiquette over beating the crap out of some kid.... oh wait, this is Drake. Yeah yeah, I don't see that happening either.

Grady on the other hand can finally hear thanks to his new tubes. We sat and watch a whole episode of Go Diego Go together. I know, it's a super Mommy Star moment. His face lit up when he heard Diego say "Clap with me!!" "Momma! Clap with Diego!" I had not realized until this moment how much he really was not hearing. I assumed that he didn't sit and watch television shows because he was two and didn't like to sit still. Nope - it was because he couldn't always hear them. pout pout Poor little guy. He was a totally different kid watching this show although I am sure that now I will have a TV junkie on my hands. It was at this same time five years ago we figured out Drake couldn't see. Wonder what it is about turning three in our house? You turn three and we find out something is wrong with you....hmmmm. Good thing WE are done reproducing! I will state that while Grady can now hear, his listening skills have not improved. Guess beggers can't be choosers!

Way to go Drake -- breaking the rules... guess there is some of you in him :) And good for Grady to be hearing the things he's been missing...
