What a LONG night last night!!!  My 5 yr old was literally BORN sucking her thumb.  She has that thing in her mouth, almost 24/7 really...we've been trying to get her to drop the habbit since she was 3, but it's not as easy as simply taking away a pacifier (which neither of my kids ever took, TG).  She starts kindergarten in a couple mos and I found this stuff on the yesterday before camp, I applied one coat to both of her thumbs and sent her off to camp!  Seemed uneventful when I asked how her day went...but then at 2am, I hear her gagging and sobbing...apparently she put her thumb in her mouth and got a big taste of that nasty stuff and was gagging...crying...needing water.  She sobbed because she said it was so hard NOT to automatically put her thumb in her mouth!  This went on and off for over 30 mins., so needless to say I'm a is on the agenda next!!!  One application lasts 2 days, so she is stuck with it for another night...I'm hoping like every other hard habbit to break, that each day will get easier...Stay tuned!

FINALLY....Haylee got her American Girl Doll...she's only been asking me for one since she was 5 years old!  I just had a hard time shelling out $95 DOLLARS for a DOLL!!!  But, I felt she was old enough to respect the doll and appreciate it!  Now she has all these accessories picked out, so they can match clothes, etc...OY!

Just Sayin'....

No pics (forgot my camera), but I thought I'd blog about my day so far!  With Haylee sick with the fever virus for 2 days, we prayed she would recover soon enough to enjoy some of this awesome weather!  She awoke Saturday with no fever and remained fever free all day, but we didn't want to take that for granted, so she remained indoors and in her PJ's majority of the day. 

I felt bad for Ash who was not sick, so once Jim got back from golfing, Ash and I hit the pool for a few hours, and had a great time...then home for showers and off to get new kicks for everyone.  Then we decided since Haylee 'seemed' ok, why not take advantage and eat OUT and enjoy the off to Chesapeake Inn we went.  GREAT time..we sat outside, enjoyed some frozen drinks and good munchies/meals, then a short walk to get ice cream outside watching all the beautiful brides enjoying the most perfect wedding day ever...just gorgeous!!!!  Makes ya wanna get married all over again (this time a SUMMER wedding, thank you!)

So Haylee still is fever thinks we'll be able to hit Staci's big July 4th party afterall...YAY!!!!
