My 4 year old had surgery this last week so I disappeared from the world for a little while. I decided to clean the house like mad beforehand, make some easy meals and avoid emails, blogging, texting, etc while he was recovering. Honestly, the last few days have been wonderful. My mom took my littlest guy and I just got to play with Chase. We colored dinosaur coloring pages, cut out a pumpkin patch and taped all the little pumpkins up on his bedroom wall, did Lego sticker book, watched Dinosaur Train, read books. It was heaven. I found myself wishing every day was like this and that laundry and dishes and errands just didn't exist, and that I could always be the nicest mom ever. Bringer of Sprite and cookies and narcotics.
That was the plus side.
The down side was obviously the whole surgery bit. But he took it like a champ and was so brave. When the anesthesiologist took him I was fawning all over him telling him how brave he was and how I would see him so soon bla bla blah.
I'm pretty sure he rolled his eyes at me.
At 4 years old he's so much braver than I am.
The weird part is he did a surgery prep class beforehand and asked lots of question so he knew exactly what was going to happen and when the time came he still strutted right into the O.R.
I'm so glad he's not like me.
I did a lot of baking before surgery day and I invented this Halloween-y soda for ya'll. I really did invent it for you because I hate candy corn but I know there are so many candy corn lovers out there. This soda is made from real candy corn so it tastes just like the real thing. This may not be the greatest soda to accompany a burger but if you love candy corn you'll love this as a sweet Halloweeny treat.
Anybody else excited it's almost October?
