Yesterday I called poison control because Hope drank the liquid out of a glow stick. Turns out glow stick liquid is only hazardous if it gets in your eye. The really dumb part about this is, I was the one who cut the top off and gave it to her to drink! I thought it was one of those wax candies with liquid inside. You remember those candies from when we were kids? Do they still even make those anymore? She is doing fine. Can you believe how silly that was of me? I kept thinking to myself, I wonder why they are making these so hard to open now, I finally gave up on the lid and just cut it open for her. My goodness. You can see why I would have done this....Right? Please say yes.
Someone asked about the status of our floors. Well, over the past two months so many white spots have popped up from moisture that now you can't even see the debris that was sealed under. The funny thing is, we have had three different people come recently who thought that we had purposely marbled and distressed them this way. They liked them! Meanwhile we never did hear back from the floor people about either fixing the floors or trying to get payment from us. They claimed they were going to take us to court for payment, but almost 60 days have passed with no word about it either way. So I'm assuming they moved on and so probably we will too. I am tempted to leave them just as they are. After all, if we had nice floors Hope wouldn't be able to do her chores wearing roller blades.
We had to call a plumber out twice last week. First because there was a big, muddy puddle in the front yard from a busted underground pipe, and two days later because our garbage disposal got stopped up. The plumber asked me if there have been any unusual objects thrown into the kitchen drain recently, and I answered, "I have five kids."
Meanwhile this is what has been going on in the front yard probably as I type even.
Both my parents and John's mom came for a visit last week and as always it was lots of fun. I took this sweet photo of Ava with Opa during family devotional time. I think she really likes him!
