Hey Renae, Mia is eating raisins, and Jett was chomping some too, and it made me wonder... how are things with Raisin Mama? Hope that situation hasn't been causing you any stress lately.
Goopy eye. Jett had it for a few weeks. Massage the tear ducts. It usually goes away in a few weeks, but can continue for several months. Nothing to worry about, from everything I've read. But you've probably looked it up and figured all this out on your own by now.
I am tripping out - on Thurs night we went to Sultan's 8th grade promotion ceremony. He's on his way to HIGH SCHOOL! I can hardly believe it.
DH did something at the ceremony that made me so proud of him! He regularly read the Megan's Law website and keeps up on local registered sex offenders. We live in a small community, so it makes sense that we could actually run into these people around town. Well, during the ceremony, he spotted a guy he recognized from the site - taking pictures with a telephoto lens. CREEPO!!!!!!! DH discreetly excused himself, called the cops, discreetly described where the guy was sitting/what he was wearing. The cop spotted him and said, "oh yeah... we know him." They waited until the ceremony was over and discreetly escorted him away. Blatant parole violation, as I believe RSOs may not be within 1500 or 2500 ft of any school. Muchless on campus with a CAMERA, TAKING PHOTOS. :Puke So yeah, John totally stepped up, stepped in, took action and protected some kids... all without disrupting a very special ceremony! he even saw Sultan walk across the stage to get his Certificate of Promotion. YAY DH! I'm beaming with pride over it. But it was really creepy at the same time. The CREEPIEST part of it all was watching the guy and the woman he was with being escorted out. Neither of them looked the least bit alarmed, or annoyed. Totally emotionless, as if they know the drill, and know it well. Sick sick sick.
I can only hope that guy was booked and his camera/film was confiscated. John's thinking about following up with the cops to see what happened. It should all be a matter of public record.
Feeling GOOD today. (Thanks for all the great comments and support on the YG
: ) It's our anniversary today (6 yrs married, 11 yrs together) and the kids are staying the night at my parents house tonight. We are going to a silent auction benefit for Mia's preschool tonight (we're raising money for a new playground), and while it's not my first choice of how to spend our anniversary, we get to get dressed up, drink wine, eat yummy food and socialize with new and old friends. So it should be fun. Is it totally awful that we have virtually no money to bid on anything? Oh well.... we donated a couple of things to auction off, and we are going to the actual event ($150/couple), so I guess I don't feel too bad. I just hope there are enough wealthy people there to make up for our lack of bidding. At least we're showing up! Some people aren't even doing that.
Okay, gotta get some lunch together for Mia and I while Jett is napping. MMF!
