meal planning I did a couple weeks ago, too - so I've been more prepared for those busy evenings!
Though one day this week was a late evening and I didn't get something in the slow cooker so we did take the night off and hit up Chick-fil-A. Turned about to be a good night b/c Max & Ruby were there. Emma was all about giving them High Fives, but wasn't as interested as Aaron in taking pictures with them!
Emma had a check up at the dentist this week. She gets glowing check ups so far, which is great b/c she loves to go to the dentist right now. Our dentist always tells her what a great job she is doing of taking care of her teeth! She's also been getting glowing marks at school - she's been on the highest color almost every day! So before the dentist appointment Monday I took her for a treat! < / Mommy Bragging>
Yesterday I had to pick her up early from school actually. I got a call from the nurse telling me that she took a bad fall and had a bloody nose and her face was scraped up pretty bad. Emma gets nose bleeds very easily (my daddy had them very bad as a child, too) so even a tiny bump to the nose can cause it to happen. So, at first I wasn't too worried b/c honestly I thought that's all it was. The more I talked to the nurse, though I realized it wasn't as simple as that, so I got off the phone and jumped in the car to pick her up.
Turns out she was running on the play ground and just lost her footing or something and went flying face first into the gravel. It did bloody her nose (bad enough they had to change her clothes even), but it also scraped her face from her forehead down the middle of her nose. Her nose is a little swollen and I really hope we don't wake up in the morning to find black eyes, too. I gave her some Tylenol when we got home and made her keep ice on it a while. After a bit she was feeling better and was outside playing with her brother and then after dinner was back outside playing with her friends. I told her everyone was going to be asking her about what happened when they saw it! And I'm glad today was the day we had lunch already planned, so I will be able to see how she is handling her day with her new bo-bo's right on her face. She didn't seem to terribly embarrassed about it last night, that's for sure!
Honestly she was more worried about playing and showing her friends our caterpillars that have returned - that had her very excited yesterday, too!
And speaking of the iPhone - can I just say that LOVE LOVE LOVE the new iPhone 5. The feature are all amazing - the speed is so great - the camera is wonderful! Love it! So, most likely if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (MishMish) then you've seen all these pics b/c they're all iPhone pics!
Have a great weekend!
