Oh. My. Word. You will not believe what has been going on with my family the past 3 days! This post was supposed to be about my new unit, which I was so excited about, but instead I get to tell you about my daughter's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day yesterday.
It started on Friday morning. She woke up saying her tummy felt funny. Sidenote: She ALWAYS says her tummy feels funny. She is a bit of a hypochondriac (I think it is a first born thing, but she must get that from her dad, cause NO WAY do I have a phobia about getting sick! Nope! NOT ME!!)
Anyway, I told her to buck up and get her butt to school (Mom of the year nomination #1), so she did but her tummy her ALL. DAY. LONG. We told her she was just nervous for her OCSA audition and to RELAX already!!
Fast forward to Saturday morning, and she says her tummy still hurts but only on the lower right side. Ummm, she means her left side, right? NOPE. Her lower right side. CRAPPERS, MAN!!
Again, I told her to suck it up, put on her big girl panties, and get through her OCSA interview (Mom of the Year Nomination #2). Soooo, we made it to her interview and she felt HORRIBLE. Here she is in a forced picture outside the school (she was soooo not happy with me)...
We got transferred to CHOC at 1 a.m. in an ambulance and she had her surgery at 6:30 this morning. Here she is in recovery, with her new elephant we named "Happy", because her nurse said her appendectomy was a "Happy Appy" since it didn't rupture on us! Gross, but thank goodness it didn't!
So, there you have it. Major drama, and we survived, with a lot of people praying for her and God's hand on her the whole time. :)
So, as a total after thought, if you are interested in my newest unit (perfect for Kinder at this time of the year, and Firsties in the beginning of the year), you can check it out below. I think it super cute, easy to use, and perfect CVC word practice!
Since I was nominated 3 times for Mom of the Year in only 2 days, I think I deserve it, don't you? Blecchh. Being a mom is so hard sometimes.
Well, I'm running on 3 hours of sleep and I am so so tired. How will I ever stay up for Downton tonight?? At least the hospital gets PBS! That's all I got to say!
