I absolutely love when the girls ask questions. It's such a learning opportunity! Today Caroline stumped me though. She asked, "Mama, how come people don't blow fire out of their mouths?"
Me: "Well, honey humans can't do that." Okay ya'll I know that is a lame answer. Caroline in a very excited voice: "if we could we would be able to roast our own marshmallows!!!" It surprises me every day what goes through their little but wonderful young minds.
Marianna has been through so much in the past week. She woke up last Thursday morning with a terrible stomach ache and very high fever. It turned out to be appendicitis. She had surgery done late Thursday evening at MUSC Children's Hospital. Everything went well and she has been on a quick road to recovery. She is normally the type of child that likes people paying attention to her. It has been interesting to watch her during this whole process. She has been very shy and not wanting to make a big deal about it. She came home from school today and said, "Mama why does everyone want to know if it hurt?" After our talk, she decided she wasn't going to say anything to any one else. She wants things to be back to normal.
On one hand it is kind of nice to see her act this way. Don't get me wrong we have and our extended family has made a HUGE deal out of it. She was a very brave young girl. Although, it makes me proud that she is learning she doesn't have to be the center of attention.
Kudos to MUSC Children's Hospital. What a special place. I don't wish sickness on any child but if for some reason your child needs to be in the hospital in the Charleston area, MUSC is superb. Every single person we met over the week was phenomenal. It made a not so pleasant experience a very smooth one for us all.
Well, Wednesdays are breakfast night in our household. The girls love it. They get so excited to dress in their jammies and have breakfast food for dinner. Honestly, it is fun for us adults too. Plus, it makes the menu planning much easier!!! So, I am off to prepare breakfast! Have a good night ya'll.
