Kindergarten, for Real this time

Grant and I spent some time getting our school supplies ready for the first day of school, MONDAY. It's so weird to start school the first of August, but I'm sure there is a good reason behind it or the school board wouldn't have voted on it.

I let Grant pick out his own folder (of course he picked black) and decorated it himself:

Pencil Box

Grant asked to be videoed last night. This is what he did:

What is an adenoid? What function does it serve? I have no idea, but apparently Grant not only needs tubes, again, but now his adenoids need to be removed. This is not what I expected to hear. I asked the doctor if he was sure.

He was.

I asked if he would recommend this for his kids?

 He would. As a matter of fact, he did, for his daughter.  Ugghhh. I'm waiting for the "coordinator" to call me so I can schedule it. Great. I'm more nervous than Grant. In fact, Grant doesn't even seem to care, except for the "shot" he'll get when they sedate him. I'll keep you posted....

Waiting for the "ENT" guy

Allergic Reaction, Again

So Grant woke up yesterday with a swollen lip and eyes. I looked closer and he was covered in welts the size of t-balls (how appropriate). I immediately panicked and called my boss, who was so kind as to get us into our doc asap. He looked at Grant and said what I feared he would.

He's the last antibiotic we can safely give him....since he's allergic to every other one under the sun. He gave him a mega dose of steroids (awesome, just what any 5 year old little boy needs) and told him no pool or sun for 5 days.


Give him a massive amount of meds for days on end and keep him cooped up in the house. I'm a little worried what the next week will bring.

We're onto the ENT next week for a consultation for tubes...AGAIN. I'm already nervous about it and it isn't even scheduled.

I let him have a Popsicle for breakfast. Poor little guy.
His upper lip was so swollen.

From Wings to Dives

Grant finally did it.....he swam without wings. I thought he might be wearing wings into his adulthood, so this was a true surprise when he just walked away from them one day. It's true what they say, he'll do it when he's ready.

No wings!!!
The next weekend he did this. And did it well, I might add!

Riding the Cars

Riding the airplanes

Safer Sparklers

You need to Recoginize, Mom

Grant came into my room last week before bath and was very insistent that I come recognize something in the bathroom. I finally went in and found all the usual bath items on the sink. I asked Grant what was going on and he said he needed a place for his army guys on the side of the tub and he recognized the stuff to the sink. I looked at him and realized he meant re-organize.

Yea, Mom. That's what I said. "recognize". Geeze.
Re-Organization in Progress

"Recognition complete"

Later on that night there was a double rainbow
over our house. No hail with this storm!
