I had to have Maddie in Cary for a dentist appointment at 8:00 this morning, which was totally CRAZY for us. I can’t remember the last time I was dressed and out and about that early in the morning, and I didn’t like it one bit! When my alarm went off before 6, Jason said, “Do you remember when you used to get up at 5:30 every morning to go to work?” I do, and I don’t miss it!
The pediatric dentist was amazing, and Maddie acted just as she predicted. Yesterday, I asked her if she was going to be a good girl at the dentist. She responded, “After I’m bad.” I thought at the time that was pretty funny, but that is exactly what she did this morning! At least she follows through….
One plus side to going to Cary this morning was that we got to go to Target. We live a little ways from any good stores, so going to Target is pretty eventful for us. I was finally able to buy some supplies to do something I have been wanting to do for awhile (since the beginning of January, actually).
When we took down our decorations after Christmas, Charlie got pretty depressed. He was upset it was over, he missed Martin (our Elf on the Shelf), and he didn’t want me to take down our decorations. I agreed to leave the little trees in his and Maddie’s rooms, and we decided after a few weeks that we would transform them into Valentine’s trees, then Easter trees, then summer trees.
Valentine’s Day and Easter are now over, and the kids still have Christmas trees in their rooms.
I am so glad we finally got this done. The kids love them, and I can finally check “take down Christmas decorations” off my to-do list!
