Well, 2 hours before we were to be their, the actual Dr. called and said that they had absolutely NOTHING on the boys, no medical history on either one of them. WHAT?! That can't be, I said. I wanted to throw the phone across the room! For the next forever I was on the phone with medical records (after being on hold for gosh knows how long) and the very nice lady said she would fax the consent forms to Drew (who was at work) so that we could try and get them to the new Dr. by appt. time. After getting the kids fed, cleaned, dressed, diaper bag ready, myself dressed, and this that and the other, I took off by myself with the kids to downtown Atlanta to a hospital I had never seen before in my life during lunch time rush hour!!! Luckily I made it with absolutely no minute to spare. Drew met me there. Noah was pitching a Noah fit x's 10 so bad we could barely hear the Dr talking. Afterwards we headed to the lab. I think Drew could tell I was ready to scream so he took N & N to get the blood drawn while I sat back out in the waiting room with Zayne. I gotta say the waiting room was great! They had little tables so the kids could color and a huge fish tank with all kinds of neat fish and turtles. After that sweet hubby took the boys for their bone scan while I stayed with Z. I would have been fine if Noah would not have screamed every time he didn't get his way. Very tiring, embarrassing and loud! We had to wait a lot in between the procedures. We ate dinner at the hospital and fought the rain and rush hour back home. Whew!! What a day! I hope I have no more days like this --yeah right!! Tomorrow workers are coming to tear apart my kitchen floor, Zayne has a therapy appt. and Nathan will probably have makeup work to no end.
Oh, and we have a rat in our house.
So see, your day wasn't so bad after all!
Quotes for today:
"With kids the days are long but the years are short."

Let me rewind just a minute and just say that all day today when I have asked Nathan to help me do something he has not hesitated one bit. He is always pretty good about doing what we say but he does grumble from time to time. Last night I was talking to him about what it means to have a servants heart and helping others without complaining.
Well after setting the boys up with their snack and movie I started up the stairs to bring down their bed clothes when I hear the obvious sound of goldfish being dumped all over the floor. I just sighed and shrugged my shoulders. That is when Nathan says..."Mama don't worry about it, I will pick it up for you. You can go do what you were doing". And he did. He walked right over to the boys, smiled and tickled their bellies and picked up all the goldfish. It was one of those moments where your heart wants to explode from your chest.
He is mama's big helper and a little man in the making.

I made him this star the other day. I made it out of cardboard and aluminum foil. He likes it a lot! It is now hanging in our living room window where he can stargaze any time he wants.
