Happy Mother's Day to me and you and you

I need to start by saying that Friday was just a stressful day! We took R3 to the ENT that morning and after spending almost 3 hours it was determined that he would need tubes in both ears.

I had mixed feeling here. I want him to get the relief he needs so tube were the answer. But at the same time I seriously thought that we had beat the ear infection thing. So I was upset knowing we were going to have to go through this all over again. This time with a different child of course. The surgery, ear plugs, making sure water does not get in his ears. Just thinking about makes me anxious.

The 29th is the day we have dubbed at "Tube Day" I still don't know what time his surgery is but the funny thing is that when we were making the appointment, Hubs said that is the same day R7 had his tubes put in. How does he remember this stuff? That was 7 years ago. I do good to remember what in the heck happened last night. By the way when we got home we got out R7's baby book and to the day R3 is having his surgery. I almost flipped when I saw R7's arm band and saw the date 05-29-01.

The better thing that happened Friday is that R7 was named MC for his schools talent show. We wanted to do his commercial imitations but he changed his mind. He is super excited and I can't wait to see him.

OK so for Mother's Day on Saturday I wanted to take the kids to the zoo, which we did and they had a blast! But before that we did that we went to the Museum of Natural Science. Twice a year they release new butterflies into their habitat and for a small fee they will let you purchase a butterfly. You get to pick your butterfly and they put your name on their web site along with the type of butterfly you bought. Hubs thought this would be fun and so off the museum we went. It was awesome! When we walked in, all these butterflies literally were just flying every where. It didn't matter where you were in the dome they were there. Flying at your face, landing on your head, and even trying to fly into the waterfall. It was very beautiful. There were so many different ones. Big, small, bright colored, plain ones. You get the idea. But they were all beautiful to me. I could have stayed in there all day. My hair couldn't though. I could feel it trying to frizz but thanks to my trusty Chi iron I was good. Any way I took way to many pictures. I even got one of a butterfly on Hub's head.

Next it was off to eat. We can't go to Houston with out eating a Pappasito's. We do not have one where we live. Such a tragedy. We have Pappas BBQ and Pappadeaux's but no Pappasito's. What kind of town do we live in? I then proceed to stuff my self full of chips, hot sauce, and fajitas. Diet, what diet?

So today I am doing nothing! We went to church and then came home to lay around all day. How glorious. No laundry to do, no kitchen to clean. A little slice of mommy heaven. Hubs is going to grill me his famous rib eye steak for dinner. Along with all the goodies. You know loaded baked potato and buttery corn on the cob. Yummy! Guess I will start my diet Monday.

So happy Mother's Day to all of the moms. I hope you have a wonderful day.
