Update: It’s Official

Remember this kid...






you know, the one that likes to eat... everything.


Well, Reese went to his 2 year appointment yesterday.


The nurse put him on the scale and I believe her exact words were…


“Good Lord!” (true story)



… He weighs 32 pounds. I figured our doc would lecture us about his weight gain (I got that lecture with the twins almost every appointment. I had to say, no I don't give them sweets, they don't drink pure juice, NEVER have soda... they're just chunky okay!!)


But she said that Reese must have hit a major growth spurt because he went from the 50th percentile to 95th in both weight and height… hmmmmm, that must be why all his pants are suddenly high-waters…


So it's official; he is a huge kid… I don’t know where he gets that.
Goose and I are not very big people. The twins were chubby, but never tall.


Anyway, so while Goose took Reese to the pediatrician, I had to make an emergency appointment to the dentist...


Because my horribly clumsy totally graceful son Ty was running across concrete at the park and wiped out…



oh, don’t worry… he caught himself…



with his face.








Which led to this....





Thankfully, our dentist is awesome and didn’t even charge us to see him. She took an x-ray and said right now it looks ok. Since it's a baby tooth, they don’t need to do anything unless it changes or starts hurting him.





So he’s just going to look a little.... crooked... until he loses his baby teeth.


Ty and I also had another appointment... for our eyes!






Ty did awesome at his appointment, and his eyes are fine... Yay!!! NO glasses!!


My appointment was not so great... in case you didn’t know, I have the WORST eyes ever… My prescription changed again. Now it is -5.00 in one eye and -4.75 in the other.


I am putting Lasik on my 101 in 1001. Seriously, I am sooooo over bad vision...


After my exam, the eye doctor wanted me to buy my contacts from them for $270.00 for a year supply. I was like, look dude (okay I didn’t really say dude) ummm, I usually get them online…


He was like, hmmm well I think this is the best price you will be able to get.


I said okay, I’ll look and if you are cheaper, I will order them from you. (Goose was proud of me... I am not so good at saying no to a sales pitch) But I knew that was way over-priced.



I used Visiondirect.com last time. I wear Optix Air night-n-day (love them!!!) and I was able to get a year supply for $165.


Plus a $40 rebate and free shipping… which means it only costs $125.00 for 12 pair.



Guess what, Mr. Eyedoctorman, you weren’t cheaper…


I saved $145.00 by NOT buying from you.



So anyway, now I am off to take the twin's pre-k applications to the DOE…

They are sooooo excited about starting school... we will see how long that lasts…



Happy Thursday =)
