Someday I'll get back to blogging more often than just for birthdays! I hope. I miss it!

I had to post about our sweet Kibby, though. She turned 5 last week, and had a fun pink birthday complete with a pink cake with pink frosting and pink sprinkles. (She's a bit fond of the pink, yes.) :)

Today we were at the doctor's for check-ups, and I was reminded that my sanity is fragile. I took 3/4 of the kids by myself while Ethan (my oldest, 8 yrs old) was in school. It wouldn't have been stressful if the appointment wasn't for all 3 of them. Small room. Bored kiddos. Hungry kiddos. Dressing and undressing themselves kiddos. (The gowns were quite the novelty.) Hearing and vision screens that weren't gonna fly for my dear autistic girl. Trying to help her be cooperative while holding a squirming, hungry 15-month-old and keeping a curious 3-year-old from: stealing all the gum from my purse, squirting out the entire contents of the big pump-bottle of hand sanitizer on the desk, and touching every single item in the room (yeah both girls had to try out the reflex hammer for themselves.)
Two hours in this little bitty room. They should consider padding the walls.
Did I mention all 3 needed shots?
That's a story for another day. For now, it's enough to be able to type this as proof that I survived. :)
