My early Valentine

We had another busy day. First it all started when the boys woke up late for school. So I had to get Carson up and load him in the car and guess what? The car wouldn't start. So I had my neighbor come over and help me jump it. Thank goodness just a dead battery but my car isn't even two years old so I'm hoping this is an isolated problem.

After dropping off the boys it was off to Occupational Therapy. Carson as usual had a wonderful time. He worked on his motor skills by cutting some things out and then we worked on oral skills. He blew some different whistles and that is always fun for him. Then we ate some different textured foods and he really only wanted the cookies. Shocking. So Nancy saw that once again, Carson didn't really want to eat. After that I met a friend at Fritz and Company and Carson did eat almost a whole hot dog and a few french fries.

Crown Center had a Wizard of Oz exhibit and we went through that as well. I took some pictures and will post those over the next few days.

Then it was off to go back home. The boys had their usual soccer practice and Carson fell asleep in the car so I just sat there for the hour. It was kind of nice to have a little peace and quiet.

I was supposed to have several family members come over tonight for my homemade chicken and dumplings but we ended up postponing it until tomorrow since a couple of the members are sick. I'm also wondering if Carson isn't coming down with something because he ended up sleeping for three hours. I hope he isn't.

Oh and I forget to mention that the heart monitor finally showed up yesterday so he is attached and did have a couple events tonight. His strip was forwarded on to the cardiologist on call so we are currently waiting to find out if any action needs to be taken.

I had to take out Carson's NG tube tonight because it was going on 30 days and needed to be switched out to the other nostril. He actually did fairly well considering. But we did have another event and it was forwarded on as well.

I talked to Jessica (Coltan and Cody's step mom) and it sounds like the stomach flu is going through all of them so I will probably plan on keeping the boys with me all weekend so that they don't catch it and bring it back to Carson. So with that said, we are in for a very busy weekend. The boys are in another soccer tournament this weekend and we have a 9PM game Saturday night and then I will be the proud soccer mom and get up at 4AM on Sunday morning to get ready and get them to a 6AM game. We will then go home and sleep for a bit and then be at church by 10:30AM. Then we have two more soccer games scheduled for Sunday afternoon as well. I already told Coltan and Cody that I plan on eating breakfast and lunch in the vehicle. But we will be home in time for dinner. I will probably put a roast in the crockpot so I'm not cooking anything.

Monday of course in Presidents day so the boys will be out of school. Depending on how well we do in the tournament, if we advance to finals, they will play it on Monday. So if anyone wants to chauffeur us around so I can sleep, the job is open for any takers! LOL

I will try and get some pictures of the boys this weekend as long as Carson cooperates.

That is about it for now.

Here is what Nancy and Carson worked on. He got to fold the paper in half and cut it out for me. Yup, I'm a nerdy mom, it is on my fridge! Here he is showing off his work. I think (with a lot of help from Nancy)he did a great job.

He is cutting a straw. It is funny because it is supposed to be fun to watch the piece fly and Carson is more worried about picking it up and throwing it in the trash.

Working on our oral skills with pary favors.

They were getting each other.

He is soooo cute.

Now it is swing time. He loves to swing on these.

One last smile for all of the Carson lovers.

Blessings for your busy weekend.

So if you are keeping the boys all weekend, are we still going out for a Margarita?

kristi said...

Gosh, that is a late soccer game! You all are going to be pooped on Sunday!!

Have a great weekend!

Lacey said...

Happy Friday to you, I love Fridays. Looks like he had fun at therapy.

Lindsey said...

Sounds like you have a very busy weekend a head of you! I wish I still got Mondays off... :)

Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. It's been a very busy week plus I went to bed last night at the unheard of time of 8:00pm!! I can't remember if I've ever done that. I was just so tired.
IKEA is a HUGE home store. It has all kinds of furniture, kitchen stuff, pretty much anything you would need for a house. But it reminds me a little of apartment or studio living. You can still find good stuff there too. It started over somewhere in Europe. You will have to visit one!

And NO the BBQ is not as good as Kansas City's. We were actually discussing that at dinner. It's like a different kind here. I miss Smoke Stacks!
I LOVE Lamar's doughnuts! I always got it confused with what shopping center it was in. Thanks for straightening me out. :)

I can't wait to play Canasta with you either! I've been talking it up so much I hope that I can live up to you and your mom! Ha!

I've been praying for little Carson. Sounds like he has been through a lot. Just wanted you to know he is in my thoughts and prayers.
Happy Friday!

Shari said...

You are one busy lady! I am sorry I haven't called or emailed to check on you. I have had so much going on. It's finally starting to settle down so I will plan to call this week. Have a wonderful weekend. That is one late game. I hear tired in the air on Monday. Love ya!

Putting your kids' crafts on the fridge makes you a nerdy mom? I must be the Queen of Nerdy Moms then. You can't hardly see my fridge for all the drawings.

I love the shot of him and the therapist blowing the favors at each other, such an awesome look of joy on his face.
