In Which Connor Has An Adventure And I Put Batteries In My Camera

Look-- I put new batteries in my camera!  Aren't you all proud of me? 

Thanks for putting up with my blog in its pictureless state for so long.  I know ya'll don't really come to read my rambling posts; you come for the adorableness that is the little guy!  So here he is in all his glory, complete with fuzzy Cookie Monster slippers.

It was pajama day at school today.

So there he is in his shiny new wheelchair with his rocket pajamas on.  He was a little bit confused about pajama day when I told him about it, but once he found out that he got to wear his Cookie slippers to school suddenly he didn't have any objections.  He loves those things!  Mostly I he likes the way they feel-- he spends a whole lot of time very carefully petting his feet when they're on. 

He's sporting another festive accessory-- a big ol' lump on his noggin!  He managed to launch himself out of a chair today at school and broke the fall with his face.  Poor little guy!  So he's got a large goose egg on his forehead and some friction burns down the side of his nose.  Maybe instead of being a yeti he should have picked a prizefighter costume!  I suppose these sorts of bruises and scrapes are part of most kid's growing up, but it freaked me out a little bit because Connor doesn't get hurt very often!  It obviously looks far more dramatic than it actually is though, because he felt absolutely fine today and it didn't seem to bother him at all.  Oh well-- the swelling was already going down by the time he went to bed tonight.  I should mention this chair was a whole foot from the floor, and I'm not totally not upset with his teacher or any of his aides-- they are awesome!  Could have happened to anybody. 

I'm not feeling so hot right now either, to tell you the truth.  My nose is pretty stopped up and I'm doing a lot of coughing; since I don't have allergies I'm pretty positive I'm sick.  So far Jer and Connor seem to be feeling okay, and I hope they stay that way!  I'm hoping that this'll be a 24 hour bug and I'll be feeling better tomorrow; we'll just have to see!

No word on whether or not I've made the derby team yet; I'm really hoping I hear something tomorrow because I am going nuts!  I'd just like to know one way or the other, you know? 

I hate waiting.

Jess- Thanks for explaining how old children "age out" in Vietnam! It makes a LOT more sense & makes the urgency all the more real! :] I wonder what she thinks about America, if anything. I had a foreign exchange friend who said she thought all Americans would be fat....and this was when we were parked near Snoqualmie Falls while my other friend was getting Mt Dew, candy, etc from a gas station. The irony was not lost on me. She was SO fun- the English idiocrasties (I can't seem to spell this word right now...gah!), the things she liked, etc..

Also, you just started skating again a month or so ago! So if you don't make it, you definitely should keep practicing and try out again. But hopefully they saw your mad skillz and sheer determination (which I'm sure showed!).

Love the pictures! I do like to see pictures of your handsome little guy. The slippers are very cool! So sorry about the goose egg. Looks like Connor has taken it in stride, though.

Love, love, love the pictures!

He really is adorable.

Sorry about the goose egg. I hadn't thought about the fact that Connor wouldn't get the bumps and bruises that were such a constant feature of my boys, at certain ages. It's a wonder nobody ever called CPS on us, but then, most toddlers go through it.

Good luck on making the team!!!
