Thought I'd start with the not so great of April. Actually the worst experience I've ever had. We We just getting home one day and Adrienne starting going up the stairs. Instead of walking, she decided that jumping on her knees was fun. After telling her to stop and hold the railing she continued to do so. Unbeknownst to me, as I had turned around to get laundry, only 3 seconds later to hear her falling down the stairs. She was laying flat on her face and started screaming. I know the scream, the scream where she's gonna lose her breathe. So I turned her over and put her in my lap and started screaming her name. She was hyperventilating, I was freaking out. She went completely limp and arms went above her shoulders and she literally had no life in her. Her eyes rolls back and she started shaking, like a minor seizure. I was bawling and screaming at her to wake up. For about 5 seconds I literally thought she was dead. She gasped for one breath and her eyes started to flutter back open. I sat her up, and she had no idea where she was, she was still opening and shutting her eyes and her breathing was very off. I carried her upstairs and she started crying again, when I layed her down she was still feeling really weird, to me and her. She told me her back and head hurt for about 10 mins. I just kept talking to her and asking her questions, hoping it was all over and she was seriously injured or had a serious problem. Although the actual experience downstairs was maybe 2 mins. it felt like 20. I was a wreck. Called TJ bawling and then called her doctor. They told us to go straight to the ER. So we did. After a clear cat scan and lots of questions, we were sent home. The rest of the week was very hard, I slept in her room 2 nights and for days couldn't go downstairs without sobbing my eyes out. This is her second head trama that sent us to the ER, crazily in the same exact spot. So needless to say she's been more attached to me and we've been giving each other lots of lovings :-)
Adrienne: "Mom I need you to help me count my flowers."
Me:" Ok Adrienne, come on over and I can help you start. "
Adrienne: "No mom, I already counted there's 7!"
Me: "OMG did you just count and write that?"
Adrienne:"Yea mom I did!"
Me: super excited dance!
Adrienne always had a hard time with her letters and numbers and still doesn't know a few letters, and definitely does not know how to write them. So needless to say we were excited! She's too cute!
We went to Kidzexplore this year and I wasn't impressed. It was fun to get out and do something different but no really worth it.
They favorite was the slide and the ponies!
Too cute, everyone loves little Salem :-)
Made it to PE 101 a couple times. Shelley came to play with us this time and Adrienne was all over that!
I let the kids take some pictures, although I haven't downloaded those.
We're really glad it's MAY!!!! Although some wonderful moments in April, the bad one kind of overshadowed the rest. We're ready for warm weather and lots of park time :-)
