We went to the York Fair with the kids last week and they were kinda blah about it.
They did like the smoothies:
They decided they did not want to be in the stroller but didn't want to be held either. I think Bella was annoyed with us for not letting her run free
The one thing they really like was the Carousel. I had to fight to hold Bella on my lap as she would not ride a horse. After the first round she was saying "More, more" we went once more but I don't think my stomach would have been able to handle much more
If you look hard, in the background is Jack with Jason's Mom and Connor. Jack liked the horses
Bella in her robot hat:
We also got stickers in the mail for Highlight magazine (which made me smile because I remember Grandmom getting that for me) and I gave Jack the stickers to play with
(please don't mind his messy face or lack of pants)
He is trying me again these days... he stood up on the chair and I told him to sit down. So he did. On top of the chair
A couple of reasons why I have been so darn busy:
1) I have been busy making shirts, here are some of the things I have done:
these are some of the characters from Yo Gabba Gabba
2) I got a job!! I am a "Parenting Specialist". I kind of have to laugh at the title but I will be teaching parenting classes, covering all different topics, different evenings through out York. It is really part time, which I wanted, but it allows me to stay home with the kids and still watch the girls I do now, plus extra $$
3) My back... my back has really been hurting lately. I have been to the chiropractor for months now. I have done oral steroids and epidural injections. I have taken anti-inflammatories and pain pills. With all I have gotten minimal long term results. I have a disc in my low back that is ruptured and herniated. I am having surgery on the 28th for it. I will be able to come home that day and it is the "easiest back surgery" that this doctor does. What gets me more than anything is that I will not be able to pick up the kids for about 3 weeks. I am very fortunate to have a mother and a mother-in-law who are more than willing to help out when they can so along with Jason, they are all going to be here taking care of the kids while I get caught up on crappy day time TV.
So wish me luck with all of the above :)
I love you Grandmom!!
