So, how is that working for ya?

Last weekend, B and E had some time with just Mommy. We had a great time. On Friday night, I braved both kids to Chili's (Emaline's choice). When we arrived, it was packed. I was scared. We walked in, put our name on the list, which was 20-25 minutes, and  went to visit the bathroom. I thought we would get that out of the way. We headed back to the front, asked if someone would move over so I could rest the car seat (that thing is getting SO heavy), and they called our name! I guess we took a long time in the restroom. Emaline and I had a great time at dinner. We talked. She colored. I rocked Bowden in his carseat. She chose a cheeseburger and fries. Good choice. Then I asked the question: What do you want to be when you grow up? The answer: jump out of swings. My sweet darling wants to jump out of swings. Sweet! Bowden starts getting fussy. Our teenage waiter asks if B would like some crackers. I explain that he is too young, and he asks how old B is. When I say 4.5 months, the guy says: So, how is that working for ya? Nice. I didn't even begin to tell that guy I had another babe at a camp out.

Another moment I don't want to forget is Emaline counting in Spanish. The kids are getting spanish at preschool and it is just priceless. I hope to get a video on here soon of them singing one of their songs. When Emaline counts in spanish she says:
doyouknow
dos 
tres
qqqwwwatro
cinco....

LOVE HER!

Also, thanks to everyone for your prayers. I wish I could say b is better, but he isn't. Looks like we will be heading to an allergist soon. I am learning my new computer. Tough time to learn something new with the business. Pictures later!

Let me know if you want the name of the pediatric allergist/immunologist we use in Southlake. She is FABULOUS!!! She is in her 50-ish, used to be a pediatrician first, and now does allergy stuff. She was the first doctor Seth didn't flip out over. He still loves her.

You are so brave to take them all to Chili's! Way to go, girl. Next, the zoo?

the waitress asking for crackers made me laugh out loud. Here's why, when I was a trainer for Chili's we had to give a lesson on "how to deal with fussy babies" one of the suggestions in the manual was to offer the mom a few crackers to tie the kid over until the food came. so without checking the age of the B, poor teenage waitress offers crackers. that's just so funny to me, I guess someone should tell her that little bitty babies in carseats, who can't sit up on their own do not need crackers!
