I was going over the prizes with her, one is a big special party for kids who read 100hrs+. Bug says she's doing that. I say, let's start with 5 hours, and add more. Bug kinda looked at me funny, then ran off to play with some other kids.
I sat down intending to read a little and be quiet, because we (I!) have been going going going all weekend with little things. I ended up talking to 2 lovely ladies, one maybe 5-10 year older than me, the other well in her 70s. Very different backgrounds on each of them. But it was nice. I'm not usually a talkative person, feeling quite socially awkward most of the time in non-business settings. I've been trying to stretch a little and make myself do things that are not always comfortable. I don't like it, but I do it. Usually it turns out fine.
Bub continues to improve and is returning to himself after his horrible infection. His O&P came up negative, but they didn't test for giardia, and that's what I think he had. My poor boy has no pants that fit him. :( and he won't tolerate a belt. *puff* Sometime this week, I need to run to some thrift shops and find him some pants. I don't want to get a lot, bc I'm pretty sure he will start gaining that weight back pretty quickly.
We got back his allergy tests. He is allergic to wheat, but not gluten. But we're on week 3 of returning him to a GF diet. The results also show he is allergic to soy and PB, both of which he seems to tolerate well in the past, and that he is NOT allergic to milk. ??? So we are patiently awaiting a follow up appt with an allergenist for further testing.
He's starting to play games back with me. His favorite right now is a variation of our original game "sneak" and "naughty puppy" only instead of a puppy toy trying to steal his orderly stuff, I'm attempting the "theft" and alternating between "sneaking" a lego, or "sneaking" a tickle on his neck or arm. He laughs, then tries to tickle me back. Once in a while, he will let me have a few legos or other toys to build something, and as soon as I finish and show it to him he breaks it and laughs hysterically.
We all got to go to church yesterday. Bub hasn't been able to go for over 2 months, what with all the GI symptoms he had been having. No hooting and hollering. We had to sit on the far side away from the cookie table tho. I made GF chocolate chip cookies and brought a variety of other cookies and snacks for him so he wouldn't feel sad. He loves getting goodies at church. Bug was very considerate of her brother, and didn't show-off what she got at the goody-table, and only ate 1 of his "special" cookies! lol! sisterly love. lolololololol
Today we are planning on a fun wet day at magic springs, then a small cook-out at home. Right before sunset, if the weather is nice, we will toast marshmallows and make smores. I found GF graham crackers!!!!!! That did not exist 6 years ago. as you can tell, it really doesn't take that much to excite me anymore... 0_o
