Hey! No heel surgery for Gus! Yesterday, shockingly, he flexed over 15° for the doctor and she was pleased. The tension-release surgery has been indefinitely postponed! Clap for joy! He’s now sporting his LAST CAST, which will stay on until May 19. Then, that comes off and he gets his special shoes… and can wear socks again. Word. However y’all pray, keep doin’ it because it’s workin’, People.
Thank you for the help on the jeans Monday. I will now put Gideon in them without shame. My fashion radar isn’t what it used to be, proven by the new regularity with which I go to the grocery store without having brushed my hair. I thought I should check with y’all, just to be sure.
There’s no shortage of candid-ness around here lately (ever?). Obviously. The child has discovered her nose, and she cannot be stopped. [Please ignore my hair, forehead, and the awkward angle of the photograph. Wow.]
Curt dresses the kiddos most weekends… this weekend was all about stripes. I really never know what’s going to walk into the living room. But, he dresses them and then takes Rylie Girl outside to work and play and all that jazz. It’s a good deal for me, and I do pass out fashion demerits (for reasons mentioned above). I told Ry to go potty for me before they went outside. As I turbo-cleaned the kitchen for those 30 seconds, I was serenaded by a 3 year-old playing her harmonica while she, uh, went. Whatever gets you through.
This was us Sunday… Gus’ screaming has quelled a bit and we are enjoying regular moments of contentment in-between bouts of evening distress. Again, Curt dressed Rylie. You can’t tell, but she has a zip-up hoodie underneath the TexasNorth hoodie… along with too-short navy sweat pants. He’s all about layering. [I would apologize for my hair, but I’ve already done that in this post. My expression, however, is completely Classic Kate.]
COMPLETELY RANDOM POST. My brain is all a-flutter right now. I hope the good news and rare glimpse of me satisfies for today and gets you through the weekend. We’re off on an impromptu family trip… so expect even funnier photos soon 🙂 I hope none of us ends up in jail.
