little green bead

Here's the bead that almost cost me a doctors visit. Jack was loading beads up in his dump truck and apparently thought it would be a good idea to put one up his nose. I tried and tried to get that sucker out and it wouldn't budge. Poor Jack, he kept saying "get out, get out". I called the clinic to see if they could get me in. They said come on up- so I put on his coat and was getting ready to go. The whole time I was thinking to myself "am I really going to pay a doctor to get a green bead out of my sons nose"? I dug and dug again and finally could see it good enough to see what was going on. Apointment canceled: got it out. Thankgoodness. It was funny because I saw our doctor out and about this weekend and she made the comment that she hadn't seen us in a while.

a great find

So apparently I'm the only one in the USA that didn't know about theses videos. Thank-you Jenny for introducing them to me!! We were headed to Topeka on Sunday so we picked them up. I had started working on letters with Tyse at the beginning of the school year and didn't feel like he was "getting it" like I thought he should be. Alot of it is his personality, but its not fun to do something everyday and feel like your making no progress. The one we are watching now teaches letter sounds and letter names. Its awesome, Jack even loves it. I catch him making some of the sounds too. It was definitely a great find.
