Safe To Say

Spring is here?! We have been in the 60's-70's the past few weeks. Windows have been open nearly ever day. I love it. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons. I have enjoyed being outside playing with Tyler. Being able to take Mishka on her walk without freezing to death. Even though I think she would rather have it cold. I have even been able to sit outside while Tyler plays in his corn box and read a book. Only thing I am not loving is allergies already. Whatever is blooming I wish it would just die already! Tyler and I have been sneezing are heads off all week:-/ I am afraid its going to be a really bad year for allergies.  Other then that I am ready to start planing camping trips, go fishing, swim, be out on the boat, yard sales and the list goes on.

How Do You

Raise your child not to have the only child syndrome? When he is the only child? With Tyler being close to three he is getting into thats mine phase. And I have come to realize as a parent I have failed! I have spoiled him way to much. I don't want him to be an ungrateful brat. So how do you go about teaching him with out him having  a sibling? If the Lord decides to give him a sibling that is wonderful. But as of now we are content with knowing he is our miracle baby.  Derek and I love him to pieces and wants what is best. So as we are not able to give him the sibling that we would love to right now or maybe forever what do you do? And knowing 80%  anyway he won't be going to public school he is never going to have good interaction with kids his age. How do you help and stop this?

I am officially out of lunch ideas for Tyler. The three things he does eat he is getting burnt out on. I have been trying new things here and there but it just ends up being a waste. I am getting very frustrated! He will eat ramon noodles, fried rice(one certain brand only) and salisbury steak.  The list I have tried for lunch is mac and cheese, corn dogs, peanut butter and jelly, sandwiches, nachos, pizza, chicken nuggets, fish sticks,  spaghetti Os, grilled cheese, grilled chicken, hamburgers, and the list counties. He does eat whatever vegetable I put with it but doesn't get full just off that. So after lunch he wants to snack the whole time up till dinner time. I am trying to find a website with kid lunch ideas but haven't came across any. He eats fresh fruit for his snacks and also gets a package of fruit snacks, eats veggie crackers or goldfish snacks.  So any help, tips, or meal ideas is welcome. I'm all out.

I got to see my grandma and and two uncles yesterday as they were driving threw to go to Arkansas. Got to visit with them for a couple hours. It was nice getting to see them. Now my dad is headed here to come visit for the week. Talk about being lucky.  It has been so nice getting to see my dad so often.  He has definitely stepped up since we have not be able to make it to Colorado since May 2011.  I so hope we can go out there this summer though.  So this week will be busy with Tyler and his Papaw playing. If the weather stays nice maybe a trip to the zoo and parks. And we can do the aquarium the day its not so warm.   I love when family comes to visit. But I am already not looking forward to the goodbye:-/ It will no doubt be hard like last time.

Bad News

Well we took Tyler into the dentist to get his teeth checked. And got some really bad news. He has four cavities! For a kid that don't eat anything really sweet I was shocked.  My heart broke and I had to fight back the tears as the dentist was telling us are options.  He is going to have to go to the children's hospital and be put under to do the work. As a 2 1/2 year they can't do it while they are awake with in office sedation. Which is understandable cause there is NO WAY Tyler would sit there. But I couldn't help but get sick to my stomach. My baby with an i, getting put under and getting his teeth drilled on:-( Me not being the to protect him from any pain. Needless to say I broke down into tears as soon as we hit the truck!  Feeling like it was all my fault and that somehow I could have prevented all of this.  Lucky Derek was there and able to calm me down and talk me threw.  So now I have to get all the insurance approvals and get things set up.  Prayers will be greatly appreciated in the up coming weeks as we prepare for this. I will keep an update on here and FB of the date of surgery and how he is doing when it all happens.
