Punched in the Nose

So I am sitting in my after school tutorials when my cell phone rings. It was the nurse from Izaac's school. When the kids were on the bus getting ready to go home Izaac wanted to sit on the outside of the seat and well I guess the boy he sits with did not agree. So the boy pulled Izaac's arm, Izaac called him a "meanie", and bam, the boy hit Izaac in the nose. The nose would not stop bleeding, so Izaac had to be pulled off the bus, and I had to go get him.

He was so pitiful. He said "When ever I get hit in the nose it makes me cry" Like he has been hit in the nose before. And one of his main concerns was that the bus left without him.

Ah, the trials of Kindergarten.

First Hair Cut

I don't think I ever blogged about Ivy's first hair cut. So I thought I would go ahead and add a photo and describe what a miserable experience it was. With Izaac it was simple, sit at the table and Daddy gives you a fade with the clippers. Well, not so easy with Ivy. So I ventured out looking for a place to basically trim up the whispies that she had hanging in her eyes. And, even though I hate her mullet, I can not bring myself to have it all cut off because it makes great piggy tails....

Three places later we end up at Super Cuts. First of all how they can in good conscience charge me $12 for what they did I will never know. Second, she cried the entire time. The picture here is after we left and went to get ice cream. She refused to sit in the chair, so the lady ended up cutting her hair while she was trying to climb over my shoulder. The lolly pop she is holding was her "bribe" to be still...that didn't work.

The next couple of times I think I am going to try it myself. Wet it, comb it straight and cut...easy peasy. That will be a great blog.

Nice Outfit

Here is Ivy showing off a few of her Christmas gifts. The wings and tiara are from Gran...there is a princess wand missing from the outfit. The tutu is also from Gran, it is a part of a set that includes a leotard and ballerina slippers. And the shoes are a gift from Tobie. When she got all of the gifts she would not even think about putting them on. But thanks to Izaac showing her what to do, she dresses up all of the time now.

Here are a few pictures from Christmas. The first one is of the kids getting ready for Santa. Ivy stuffed as many cookies as she could into her mouth. Guess she was worried that Santa would not leave any for her.

The kids in front of the fireplace are ready for Santa. If you look closely you can see Ivy still has cookies in her mouth.

Kids in the midst of unwrapping. Ivy got the hang of it this year, she was definitely slower than Izaac, but needed no help... The shoes were a hit.

New Lens

Yesterday we finally got the correct lens for the correct eye on Izaac's glasses. Now the thirty days starts over. There was no sense going in on the original date seeing that the weak eye never got to practice with the new lens. So our next trip to the doctor is Feb. 8th. Wish us luck.
