Thankful Sunday

I'm sitting here drinking the absolute worst cup of coffee I have ever made and wondering what I did wrong. UGH, it's terrible. Nothing worse that ruining your morning life line.

It's a dreary day here in RI. No sun today , just rain, but warmer temps so I'm not complaining.

This week I'm thankful for this verse from Matthew 6;34

"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

It was the reading at Mass last week and it has followed me all week. Everywhere I go I see it. I've bumped into it on two or three separate blogs this week, I picked up the bible to the page it is on, it's just everywhere.

I'm thankful Miss Em bounced back after being sick this week. The doctor called it a stomach bug but knowing my daughter I disagree. She has been sick like this about three or four times in her little life and I just don't call it a stomach bug.
Here's the Little Muffin feeling terrible and looking just pathetic. Notice the worried look on her face. Glad to say whatever this thing is that hits her every so often, is gone and she is her happy self again.

And Miss Em had her first dentist appointment this week. She never really warmed up to having her teeth brushed. It was a family effort to pin her down, hold her kicking and wildly flaring legs, open her mouth without getting bit and then someone had to get the toothbrush into her mouth. At that point her hyena strength jaws usually snapped down around it. She's much better now requiring only two people to preform this twice a day act. But I did notice a tiny black speck on her back tooth, so off we went to the dentist. She behaved rather well, biting him only once and controlling her growls. But all is well, it's ok for now, it's not a cavity and will be looked at in six months.

Hope it's sunny where you are today! Have a great Sunday.

And today is the last day to vote for Lily!!

M was the same way when it came to brushing his teeth. I finally gave him the toothbrush and he did a pretty good job of brushing himself. At 21 he still has no cavities. Poor Em, she does look so sad about being sick. Glad she is feeling better. Hope you have a good one my friend. Hugs

Awww, poor Em! Glad she's feeling better, though. I wonder what that was...?

Yep, rain here today, too. Yuck. But a good excuse to stay inside in our jammies! :-)

Poor little Em, I do hope she is feeling better, although she looks ever so sweet in that picture, I know she's not well but what a darling little picture.

Hope you have a great week and make sure that cup of coffee tastes better tomorrow morning.

So sorry Em has been under the weather, thankful she is bouncing back to her happy go lucky self.
Cracking up at the image of you guys brushing her teeth.
Should Alayna do another video she loves her toothbrush (automatic one).

Oh, look at that poor sickie thing. Bless her little heart!

We're in the same toothbrushing boat. It can be QUITE a spectacle. One thing that's helped a bit was finding a happy, short song that we only listen to when we're brushing. We brush to the song and then finish when it's over. It seems to help her know that the activity has a predictable end and knowing the song lets her know when it's going to wrap up. But she's usually just a slightly calmer version of a toddler possessed. :0)

Sister, has been RAININg here for DAYS....I like rain, but come on, I'm ready for the sun. I'm sorry Little Miss is still puny. I do love the pic, so precious. I may just have to make a road trip to meet you this summer. I mean I think two MOTY's are better than one right? I love that verse. I have to stay in today or I'd probably never get through.

We just had our dentist appointment too! Although Jax doesn't like anything in his mouth, he doesn't snap down so we don't have to worry to much about lost fingers!
