My baby is starting school.........

I can't believe it, I thought I had another year with her home, watching her grow, I was wrong. I didn't realize the if your child is turning 4 before December 31st, and they don't start JK they will automatically be put in SK the following year. I really don't like this, you know if your child is ready and most JK'ers are 4 turning 5, I really think you should have a choice on when they begin. My oldest DD was in the same boat, but there was no doubt in my mind she was ready at 3 to start school, and she has excelled, but my little V is so timid and babyish still and TINY, I am worried about her.
What if the bus crashes, she doesn't even weigh 30 pounds, she will be thrown for sure, I think this is what scaring me the most, she is so small, I think a year of growth physically more than anything is needed, I really want to fight with someone and ask to have an option, but I don't want to hold her back, I know she's smart, I know she'll makes friends, I know she needs to grow up and start school, I just wish I had more than a week to prepare myself for it, and that babies could stay babies for awhile longer. Whatever happened to the days of old when you were 5 starting into Kindergarten? That was me 5 and ready, here's to hoping the first day goes easily for both of us!!!!

Daisie coming home and Deal of the Week!

it looks as though our little girl will be coming home today!!! I'm so excited about that! The vet called yesterday and our hearts stopped, vets don't call on Sunday with good news right?, thankfully we were wrong, he called to say how great she was doing considering she was on death's door last Monday!!! Can't wait until 10 am so we can call and arrange for her to come home!!!

Deal of the Week

well this week my deal is FREE, well not totally free but i sold some older product at an LSS garage sale on Saturday and sold enought to get a Making Memories Runway tote and a bunch of other stuff, you got the amount of stuff you sold at the sale in bucks for the store, I will be doing this again for sure!!!

It doesn't look good

the blood work for Daisie came back, her kidney is shutting down, it's so sad, she is a lovely dog, the best temperment and so loyal. They are going to do a kidney flush tommorrow and give her another x-ray with dye to get a better picture, but the vet isn't very optomistic.
It was just 5 years ago that I fell in love with her, she was my wedding gift to myself on August 18th, 2001. I hope she fights and gets better, we so need our little dog to come home.

What a stressful couple days....

our dear fur baby, Daisie, is terribly sick, we don't know what's wrong for sure, the vet thinks she got into something poisonous or toxic. We don't know how she's never outdoors alone, unless she got into something while we were at my inlaws(they have a huge field) and she likes to run off into it. We were stunned by how fast she went down hill, from Friday being her usual self to Monday not being able to walk on her own and having a very low heart rate and temperature. I spoke to the vet again now and she is back into the normal ranges but her blood work still isn't in so they are keeping her overnight again. At least the x-rays show her insides are normal, that is good, means no surgery needed. Anyway if you could keep thinking some positive puppy healing thoughts with us, we'd be grateful, our house is too quiet without her, and that's hard to say living in a house with 4 kids

I love summer

It's full of such wonderful memory making days. Last Saturday I took the kids to a birthday party in Burlington at La Salle park. It has a splash pad and a huge playground, they are still talking about it today!! This weekend I am taking Saturday off, and going shopping with my sister, after Dan being gone for 2 weekends this month and having the 4 kiddies home with just me, I am totally wiped out. Love em to death but they are exhausting!! :)
We are going to our friends cottage again this month for a week, the kids are so excited about that, they remember how great it was last year, a week on the beach, I just hope the weather is as perfect as it was last year!!
Dan and I will be celebrating 5 years of marriage on the 18th, although it hasn't been a picnic lately, with him working so much and being away, I'm feeling very neglected, but i keep telling myself it's just temporary and we're getting our Disney fund going VERY nicely!!! which is a plus!
