Well, ya’ll know how part of my morning started. After I posted I went to the Farmer’s, and he and I chatted for a bit, then I made some pancakes and bacon. In my morning chat with the Farmer, I learned that while I have been having “Good” mornings with Momma, the late afternoons left something to be desired by him. Apparently yesterday, momma had a bad afternoon and didn’t really surface until about 6:45 pm. So, to the Farmer, I’m sorry, but you will have a break tomorrow night k?
I got Momma up, bathed and dressed in her new duds. She was in really good form for me. We did her exercises and she did really good. I made her some chocolate chip pancakes and bacon, and then had to fly over to pick up Cam-Man.
I got to the Nursing student’s house and she was clearly a little bit upset. Cam-Man had a Doctor’s appointment yesterday and I guess the doctor upset her. Apparently Cam-Man is low on his weight for his height, and the Doctor said he should be talking more….uhm…huh? I’m about to get a little snarky, but EXCUSE me….As a Mother, and a Grandmother I am here to tell you there is no kid the same as any other, and I don’t care what you are basing your ASSUMPTIONS on, or the fact that there are studies on this subject, I know Cam-Man. He talks, and he also eats. He talked my ear off after I nabbed him to take him to the Farmer’s. He understands what you tell him, and he has powers of reasoning that sometimes make me stop and think. I guess I got a little snarky because it upset the Nursing Student. But after being reassured by EVERYONE, I think she feels better now.
Back to the day, Cam-Man arrived at the Farmer’s full of giggles and fun. Momma was happy to see him, he went right up to the Farmer first and said his “hello’s” then up to Momma. The next hour or so we all played, and then Momma was watching the Walton’s so, I put Momma’s t.v. in her room onto some Sid the Science Kid, and Cam-Man (who was feeling a little tired by then) sat in the chair with his blankey and thumb and watched it for a bit.
After he was done with Sid, he decided that since the kitty’s were sitting in the other chair in Momma’s room he would stir them up a bit and then a little chaos ensued. I got Momma up and we were making our way to the kitchen so we could wash Momma’s hair when the doorbell went off. I told Momma to stay in the hallway until I could back to her and went to the front door and there was no one there, I went to the back door and there was the Farmer (he had gone shopping at Wal-Mart) . He brought in his groceries, and I went to check on Momma who was in the bathroom by now, and yup, you guessed it Cam-Man was “helping her” I wished I had the camera, because (for the faint of heart don’t read the next sentence), Momma was sitting on the toilet, Cam-Man was sitting on the edge of the bathtub, holding her hand and they were having a conversation. The Farmer told me that Cam-Man was helping Momma. After we got her back up and ready to roll, the Farmer and Cam-Man went to have a pow-wow in the den and I washed Momma’s hair.
After Momma was settled back into her chair and her hair had been washed and combed, I got us all a snack of cheese-its. I love those crackers! Apparently so does Cam, because he ate all of his and then because the Farmer and I hade ate all of ours he went to Momma (who is a little slower at eating than the rest of us), and begged some from her, he even said “pwease”.
It was time to take Cam back to the Nursing student, so I put Cam’s hat and coat on and told him to go tell Great G’pa bye-bye, which he did, and told him to tell great G’ma bye-bye, which he did (he even gave her a hug & kiss). Cam was asleep before we even hit the end of the driveway.
After dropping Cam off and talking to the Nursing Student for a bit, I had to leave to go to the DMV. Yup, the State of Illinois sent me a letter advising me that as of tomorrow I was expired. So, I waltzed right in and renewed my driver’s license. It was kinda funny actually. The lovely lady that helped me after seeing my name asked me if I was the Nursing Student’s Momma, and I said uh…yea….and then proceeded to ask me about her and her wedding and her baby. So, it was kinda not so bad to go re-new my driver’s license. Plus, I was in there and outta there in about 10 minutes.
After coming home and relaxing by doing yet some more domestic goddess duties, I made a really good dinner. Pork tenderloin steaks braised in white wine and butter, fried potatoes, and broccoli and cheese sauce. On that note, I’m stuffed (uhm burb). I’ve had my shower and I am calling it a night. Hope all of your Wednesday’s were as great as mine.
