5 Things This Tuesday

1. Yesterday I completed what must be a rite of passage for a mom of more than one kid. I took both of my boys to my 6 week postpartum appointment...during their nap times. (Logan is not on a schedule yet, but was definitely wanting to be sleeping at the time.) I prepared as much as I could. I armed myself with snacks, seldom-played-with but quiet toys, a pacifier, and some patience. It turned out okay with only a few tears from each boy. And when I had them both tucked into bed at home after the appointment, I sure did go ahead and eat not one, but two cookies in celebration.

2. I bought and wrapped my first two Christmas presents today. They are for Casey.

3. Logan has begun napping and spending the first part of the night in his own crib. I love it and I'm sad about it at the same time.

4. Ethan has to go see the dentist soon. I don't think I've been able to brush his teeth really well since...well, ever. Because he hates it. But he's got to have those "baby" teeth for several more years so we're going to go get them cleaned. Anyone know of a pediatric dentist who is not afraid of drugging a 2-year-old for the appointment? :) Because I'm pretty sure that may be the only way he'll let anyone near his mouth.

5. I feel a return to my workout regimen beginning next week. And then, hopefully, a return to my pre-pregnancy clothes too. Wouldn't that be lovely?

I need to get Ashton in to the dentist too! He does like using his Equate Lion toothbrush (I was happy he picked that one out because of the price) and his Crest Kids toothpaste, though. Good luck on finding a good dentist for Mr. Ethan!
