Girls Growing up :-)

My oldest, Cassie, had her eight year wellness checkup yesterday. She steadily remains in the 50%tile for her age. She has grown so much in the last couple of months I guess she was undersized back then! She skipped 1 1/2 shoe sizes and went from a 6x Slim to an 8 slim / regular (depends on how it's made).

Bailee, who is five, steadily refuses to eat periodically. She LIVES for dessert..... "how many beans do I have to eat before dessert", "how much more Mommy before I get dessert" think she'd be overweight she loves sweets so much:-)

Me - I love all kinds of food. BUT - I'm trying to love it less so there is less of me. I don't realize how big I am until I try on clothes in a dressing room. I would hate to see me on TV since it makes you appear 15 pounds larger ;) I have started walking and hope to run soon - for weight, for stress, for me !

Until next time...

Another busy week :-)

Well..........the girls had dental appointments yesterday. I am so glad that Bailee got my teeth - healthy, strong, never any problems. Poor Cassie got teeth from her daddy's side of the family. Soft, prone to issues, etc. They are putting sealants on her teeth. I know some of those critical moms who are saying "she really doesn't make her kids brush their teeth". Well they are wrong. I am fanatical about it because of Jeff's family's teeth and because of all the sugar kids eat nowadays. Poor Cassie takes very good care of her teeth to no avail. She also has tight room on the bottom - one of her uncles, again on her daddy's side of the family - has the same problem and has always wanted to get his teeth corrected.

She goes to an orthodontist this month to see if he wants to put a retainer or braces on to widen her gum line to make room for all the teeth so they will fall into place. I'm amazed at what they do to help prevent issues today compared to 25 years ago when they waited until all your teeth were in before doing anything !

Bailee has two loose teeth on the bottom - I'M NOT READY FOR MY BABY TO LOOK OLDER ! She's still my baby;) She is so excited and works on those teeth. She doesn't want to have them pulled but I really think she wants the Tooth Fairy to bring MONEY !!!

I have heard not-so-good news from my friend Dot who's melanoma is now in her brain in addition to her liver and lungs. She started radiation today - please keep her in your prayers. She is a dear lady and we all love her dearly.

Take Care,
