Open House and a Vet Visit

We've had a busy day. This morning was open house for Mothers Day Out. Bennett went first and I'm so sad to say that he won't be in the class I was hoping he would be in. I knew he wouldn't be. He was assigned to it but when we got there I told the director that he isn't walking yet so he got bumped down to his old class. Bennett is being such a stinker with walking. He will walk holding onto just one of my fingers with just one of his fingers. He can totally do it he's just scared to. It's fine, really. It was meant to work out this way but I can't help but be disappointed. On the bright side, he will have the same teachers he's had for a while and be in the same classroom too, so I do like that because that just means he'll be really comfortable and his teachers are so sweet. I don't know what we'll do once he does start walking....I guess we'll just have to wait and see. So there's my low of the day. Womp Womp.
After Bennett's open house we had a short break before Campbell's open house. So I went to Starbucks and just drove around for a little while before going back to our church. Scott met us to attend Campbell's open house since he will be in preschool and it will be different than it has been for the last few years. I surprised myself because when we were standing in line to purchase his workbook, I got a lump in my throat. It felt very school-like and big boy and I just thought "take me back to 18 month old Campbell." Even though it's the same place with the same people, it feels so different in the preschool building. We purchased our book then found Campbell's classroom and met his teachers and I think we're going to have a good year! His teachers seem so sweet and one of them knew Campbell from his class 2 years ago (the one I was hoping Bennett would be in) and she said she was excited to see Campbell was in her class. Campbell had fun playing around and when we left, I snapped a photo of him in front of his nametag/hanger where he'll just hang his own backpack up like he's in elementary school or something. #holdme
Campbell seems really excited to start back to school and his class is full of the same little friends he's been with for the last two years and that makes me happy. I'm really excited to see what the year holds for both of my boys!
After open house we grabbed a quick lunch at Chick Fil A, came home to rest, then I took the girls to their annual check up. I'm happy to report that they had a perfect report and I am so glad. I did book an appointment for them to get their teeth cleaned. It's the first time for them to do it and even though it's a routine procedure, I'm nervous about them being put under anesthesia. Ivy's teeth look good but Madison will have to have some extracted. They booked it for a Friday and I was all like "what if something happens over the weekend? Can I have your cell number?" My girls have only been put under one other time and I didn't handle it well. When I went to pick them up and saw how pitiful they were, I passed out. Yep that's right. Scott still talks about how embarrassing that was for him.


  1. It's hard seeing your furbabies go through that. My dog has had two dentals since we've had her. This last time (last Fall) I booked nothing so I could snuggle with her the entire night. She loved the extra attention. She was fine the next day. They are so strong and resilient. Your furbabies will do great. Hang in there Momma! 🐾💜

    1. I plan on clearing my calendar for lots of snuggles!
