This afternoon, we went to the children’s museum with MOMS Club, although there was actually only one other family there with us. Peeper, of course, had a great time.
Today was our town’s big festival. Of course, Peeper had to check out the fire engine that was on display.
Then she got herself chosen to play the “is it really a dinosaur or did this guy just make up a name?” game.
We came back in the evening for the reenactment of the town’s burning during the Civil War. This was the 150th anniversary, so it was kind of a big deal.
Peeper just informed me, apropos of nothing, “If we need to buy more Goldfish, I’m okay with that.”
A week or so ago, Peeper said, “My tooth feels funny.” I thought for a moment that she might have a wiggler, but no, one of her caps had fallen off. Again.
She was scheduled for her check-up next month, but we didn’t want to wait that long to get it fixed, so we made an earlier appointment. When I called, I found out that our beloved dentist was leaving the practice, so we had to see the other guy. He’s no Dr. C, but he was fine.
And Peeper was just fine, with no cavities at all (we went ahead and did the checkup) but she still has a missing cap, because it seems that we replaced it last September, and insurance won’t pay until it’s been a year. So, maybe we’ll go back then, or maybe we’ll just let it go. She’s almost six years old, everybody’s a bit snaggle-toothed at this age, and she’s going to be losing it in the next year or two, anyway.
I sure wish they’d checked on that insurance thing before we drove an hour to the appointment, though.
Peeper and I counted her allowance today, and she decided that it was time to donate the $1.75 in her “Share” jar to the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter. She dictated a letter to accompany the donation. I wrote down her words exactly. Then she drew some pictures for the animals, and I added a cover letter.
Peeper and I did some grocery shopping today. She was dressed like this.
Our little town has started doing outdoor movies once or twice a month. We’re looking forward to The Wizard of Oz and ET later this summer, but tonight we saw The Lego Movie. It was a bit more blowing-shit-up than I’m really into, especially for a kids’ movie, but it was cute, and Peeper really enjoyed it.
Also, I’m the Best Mama Ever, because I brought along home made popcorn.
Why do bees love my baby so much?
She and Shrike were running around in the backyard this evening, and she fell down. On two bees. Both of whom stung her.
