Kids Say the Wildest Things.
I have the cutest kids. So what if I'm a bit biased, I'm the mommy and I can be. :) It's been a wild week, to say the least. Drew is spending the week with my parents in Wisconsin. He's having a blast. He will come home tomorrow to help throw Stacy and Nick their wedding shower. The quads have had some quality Mommy and Daddy time this week. That doesn't mean it's been smooth sailing. I was headed to get the laundry from the basement and I told them "Mommy is going to go bang her head on the wall". Immediately I got the response from them "BYE-BYE!" Not only did they yell, they waved. Hahaha. We've also finger painted, gone to Dairy Queen and eaten cookie dough this week. Overall, I'd say it was a fun and successful week!
Brian and I finished the basement. YIPEE! It looks great, and the kids love it. I took them down to play for a bit yesterday. They have discovered things sort of echo and sound twice as loud. I'm just glad I still have my hearing. We got a bit loud. We haven't finished all the toddler beds yet. Jack is still doing great in his. I think Parker might be getting the idea. I've seen him lay on Jack's bed a few times. Maddox is too interested in stuffed animals in their room. He likes to move them from place to place. Emma has discovered jumping on the bed. That girl is gonna be a wild one! Boys look out...Daddy is prepared. (Note to Brian: BE READY!)
I will post more on this later, but some of you know I've been a little under the weather lately. I had some tests done and came back showing something very unexpected. My urologist called to tell me I have a tumor growing on my ovary. I have some follow up appointments in the next two weeks, and currently feeling quite devastated and depressed. I know I was told a few details, but being in shock at that moment, I couldn't tell what those details were. I ask that you don't give your medical opinion, but just show support for me and my family. Again, I don't have many details as I totally shut down after I heard those words. I will keep you posted on how things are going and how I'm feeling.
