30 Days of Thanks ~ Bethany's ear and a clean smelling house
Joe was off work yesterday and Jenna went with us so that Joseph could have some special time with Mamma on his birthday, while Brady napped at her house. Bethany was happy Jenna came along and they planned a shopping trip afterward to buy Joseph gifts for his birthday.
Jenna was eager to go, I found out why before we left. The ENT's name is Dr. Wolf, as I was buckling Jenna into her car seat she asked, "Does he have a tail?" Joe and I cracked up laughing. Later as Jenna was telling my mom about the appointment she said, "Yeah, he was nice...and he's a man." :)
Amazingly Bethany was very calm and relaxed during the appointment, the least nervous and worried she has been. I think she was ready to find out whether she needed surgery or not and was tired of having it hanging over her head. I know having Joe with us made her feel better too. God really gave her peace through it. She was really goofy all day and while we waited in the exam room she said, "I'll think I'll just get comfortable while I wait." and she laid down on the table.
Jenna had us laughing all day yesterday, she says too many funny things to remember. Today however, I wasn't laughing. She loves to help me and is really great about picking up and doing task that are assigned to her. Today she wanted to use some new furniture dusting wipes, so I instructed her about how to use and how not to use them. Bethany, Joseph and I were doing school, Brady was sleeping and Jenna was "dusting". It was nice to do school in peace without Jenna's "eruptions" as Bethany calls her interruptions.
The silence lasted for quite sometime until even Bethany became suspicious and went to look for her. She found her behind my locked bedroom door, sign number two that this wasn't going to be good. I unlocked the door and was hit in the face with the smell of baby powder. Jenna was "dusting" my bed table, covered in baby powder. I guess the furniture wasn't dusty enough for her!
She had messed up everything on the counter in the bathroom, set things on the toilet lid, there was powder all over the bathroom, all over Joe's night stand, all in the carpet and trailing around the bed to my bed table. She had pulled out every. single. baby. wipe. from a full container of wipes and they were piled in the floor.
