Please make an appointment...

Who would've thought that me, an incredibly, horrendously disorganized person would need TWO calendars just to keep track of what we have going on everyday!

This summer is so busy it's ridiculous! We have therapy nearly every day and multiple appt's. Emeric has an appt. with a neuro-developmental pediatrician in June. And then a geneticist, the GI, the neurologist, and a vision specialist. He's also being fitted for orthodics and a helmet within the next couple weeks.

The orthodics will hopefully help him keep from turning his right foot out and his left ankle in. They're cute little inserts that go into his shoes and you won't even be able to see them with his shoes on.

We ordered Emeric a cooling vest and it should be here next week. He doesn't cool down well and gets overheated outside so this vest will help keep him cool. We ordered it from

Jake is keeping incredibly busy with construction, mowing, putting docks in and doing other random jobs around the neighborhood.

Last night the kids were in their room in bed and Jake and I overheard them talking:

Kaydence: Kylie, when will we die?

Kylie: When Jesus says.

Kaydence: I'm too little to die. Can I bring my blankie?

Kylie: Yep.

Kaydence: How will we get to Heaven?

Kylie: Jesus will come and get us and we'll go up in the sky.

Kaydence: Does he have wings?

Kylie: No.

This went on and on for about 5 minutes and then Kaydence started randomly singing. Jake and I were laughing our butts off. They talk about death too much. It's sort of creepy.

I really don't feel like writing lately. I feel like nothing is really going on in my life that is worth writing down. Nothing great to remember. It's really been one of those blah weeks. I feel really unmotivated about everything and really unsettled for some reason.

The kids have been crabby, I have been crabby, and well you get the point.

So, nothing much to report. Kaydence and Emeric were both at the doctor today. Kaydence has a sty on her eyelid that's been there forever and Emeric is a crab. Actually I think he's in pain and we don't know why. And he has a sinus infection likely. That's about all that's new here.

5 year olds

Kaydence was pretty sick yesterday with a high fever. She slept on my right arm all night long so let's just say that my visit to the chiropractor yesterday was pointless. Today she feels better and she wanted to watch Ice Age. I said sure. Then she wanted pizza for lunch and I said sure. Kylie exclaimed that Kaydence ALWAYS gets to watch her movies and eat pizza for lunch and it was NOT FAIR and nothing is fun!! Kaydence said, "Mom said I could eat pizza!" and Kylie loudly proclaimed that we ALWAYS eat pizza(which is not that far from the truth!) and again that it wasn't fair.

I can see that age 5, which is quickly approaching, is going to be a charming age. It's a land where nothing is fair, nothing is fun, everything is boring, and your sister gets everything and you're just left behind in the dust.

Not much has been happening here in the last few weeks. We ended our Bible Study and Awana's for the summer and Gymnastics is also done. It's been a nice break! We're cutting back on Emeric's therapy a bit for the summer to just give everyone a break!

I got my garden planted and my flower beds done last week. The day after I planted it was very windy and I think some of my petunias might not survive. The girls are excited about the garden but hate weeding. What kid hates weeding? :)

Kaydence is sick today. I had a chiropractor appt. in town and came home and she was lying on the couch. Jake was complaining about how crabby she was and that she wouldn't eat. I said she probably didn't feel good and I went and felt her forehead and she was hot.

Emeric still has his cold too and I'm getting tired of chasing him around with kleenex!

People can be really dense...

There's this lady at Bible Study who doesn't know me but apparently has "heard" of us. She came up to me today and she said, "Oh, aren't you the one that um one of your kids has something wrong with him?" I gave her a look as if to say, "What? What are you talking about?" and then she said, "Yeah, doesn't one of your kids have seizures?" @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ That's me rolling my eyes out of my head.

Do people really think a good way to approach someone that you don't even know for the sole purpose of satisfying your own nosy curiousity is to ask what's wrong with your kid?

So I said, "Nothing is WRONG with him. Yes, he has seizures."

Then she goes blabbing on and on about how she has a niece with seizures and how it isn't the end of the world!

Um, did I ever say it was the end of the world????????? NO!!

Apparently she didn't think her first few comments were dumb enough so she then says that he'll probably grow out of it. As if she now knows everything about Emeric and that all people with Epilepsy outgrow it. I'm not sure why people tell me this anyway. I guess they think it helps. It doesn't.

I say, "uh huh" and she asks if he has seizures daily and if takes any medications for it. @@@@ Again, rolling my eyes. I tell her yes and she just can't believe he still has seizures while on the medication and then gives me this look as if to say she's sooooo sorry.


I can't even begin to tell you how annoyed I was with her and how rude I thought she was and how angry all her stupid comments made me.

So, my point?

That you don't want up to someone that you don't even know and ask them what's wrong with their kid and then proceed to tell them that he'll grow out of it despite not knowing anything about him.

Anyway, that's my rant for the day. Thanks for listening! :)

The girls have a Beach Party today. We got to a Bible Study at a church in town every week and there's a class for the girls called Little Lambs. They really love it and today they get to wear swimming suits which they think is even more fun!

They also got a cat last night. Our other cat ran away so we got a new one. It's orange like our last one and it is so friendly it acts like a dog! It puts it's paws up on you and waits for you to pet it!

I'm leaving tomorrow with Kerry to go garage saling in the cities. We're meeting up with a bunch of people with Grand Rapids. It should be fun, I'm excited to get away. Although I've never left Emeric that long so I'm a bit nervous about that but I'm sure he'll be fine!

Happy May Day!
