Blue to Be Green

This week was, as Frank Eggelhoffer would say, "Lots of fun".  A sweet little neighbor girl brought the flu over to us and we were all looking the color of my face in this photo.  Sigh. Luckily Emily is old enough to know how to throw up in a big bowl instead of her bed and Heidi was pretty good at keeping it in the high chair.  It's a good thing she's in that so often! Unfortunately, I missed out on the YW "camp out" - OK, beach retreat.  I was really, really looking forward to that - which surprised my mother who knows how much I hate camping. (She didn't realize it was in a condo on the beach.)  My ward keeps people in their callings for a long time so perhaps I can plan it again next year.  

Anyone who wants to see Heidi's chipped teeth is welcome to come over anytime in the next six years.  There's not a lot we can do right now.  Filing is not an option and she's too little to have super expensive fake teeth put on her chipped teeth.  Even if we did that the dentist, whose own kids have broken their front teeth (that's got to make a dentist feel fantastic), said that the fake teeth fall off all the time in apples or other hard food.  So, for now, I'm just going to hope she's an early tooth-looser like Emily.  I was also thinking of getting her a shirt that says, "At least I won" so no mean boys will make fun of her.

Addition made 8 hours later - Now Heidi has an ear infection.  Why am I not a pediatrician?  I could almost make up for medical school tuition on my savings from doctor visits!

Hope you're all well soon!

Hey Laurie - just checking in on you after I saw your comment on my blog. Sorry about Heidi's tooth. Did the dentist take out what was remaining?
