I have a confession to make...
My kids have never seen a dentist. I KNOW! That is very very bad! So, today I set up their first dental appointments. I have strategically set Andersons appointment for a Tuesday morning when Lee is available to take him. :) I just don't even want to be a part of Anderson's first experience with a dentist. He is not one of those kids that accepts new experiences with open arms and I don't think his dentist visit is going to be a pretty scene. Lets just hope that he has good, healthy teeth and doesn't need lots of dental work in his childhood.

Adri will go in September while Anderson is at school.

Speaking of dentists, I should probably go too. Bleck!

On a happier note, I bought the round version of this tablecloth and it is being shipped today!!!!

Its going in my entry way. I hope it looks good. I am excited to be slowly, let me emphasize, SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY getting my house to reflect me and my taste. Next week my mom and I are going to put the final coats of paint on the trim in the living room and dining room and change outlets to white in those 2 rooms as well as the kitchen and the kids bedrooms. All of those rooms have no outlet covers on them right now. HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT????? See what I mean by SLOW????? Then Lee and his parents are taking the kids to Atwood on the August 28th weekend and my mom and I (she is such a great home DIY buddy) are going to tackle either the entry way or the family room. YIKES!!!! Those are both HUGE projects, but hey, when else am I going to get an entire weekend without kids???

I am also making headway on tearing down the "precious" wall paper in the laundry room. I am painting it either apple green or buttery yellow. We shall see! Here is the laundry room before pic.

And as I type this, this is what the kids are up to. (Mom, don't look)

This is why I can't blog these days. B/c my kids can't find something safe to do on their own. People keep telling me I will miss these days. I believe them, sometimes. :)

More later (during nap time perhaps!)

Okay, I LOVE this post because A) My kids have never been to the dentist either and B) During the day, my couch hardly ever has pillows on it because the kids are usually making trains with them or jumping from the ottoman onto the couch. Did you see Caroline's picture of her mid-air like Anderson a few weeks ago? Such is life!!! Glad we're at least on the same page. :)

My kids LOVE the "jump from the couch" activity too!!! Very cute pics!

Jump from the couch? That's my kids' favorite activity this time. Whenever their cousins visit our house, you can imagine how messy our living room can be, with throw pillows everywhere. Well, my wife will accompany our youngest daughter to the dentist's office tomorrow for a dental check-up. He's the only dentist in Maryville, TN who can make our little Katie behave in the dentist's chair! In his entire dentistry (Maryville, TN) practice, I've never heard of any case that a client complained about his dental services. Now, that's good for Katie, I must say. Thanks for sharing!
