The tick

I have told this story so many times, I am so proud! So on Tuesday LG went to a little league game one of her friends was in and came home with a tick on her belly. Now I want to mention that we have had a lot of meltdowns. She is a drama queen and has flipped over having a splinter or her dress not laying right or her socks not matching and of course there was the great foot peeling fiasco of 2007. So she has tick and she tries to pull it off like it's just a piece of lint or something and starts to flip about how it won't come off. So I tell her it's just a mosquito, mosquito's like to drink really fast and ticks like to drink really slow and hang out for some time, and she's whimpering and whining. Matt comes in and soothes her and tells me to find some nail polish, we paint the tick with nail polish and he comes right out...into a tissue and into the toilet. It was nothing! easy peasy! no huge meltdown or anything. The whole experience was just awesome!
So we got a letter from the school Lg didn't make it into kindergarten...which of course means their standards are just set to high. I know that is such a Mommy thing to say but she got a 112 on her IQ test (the normal range is 90 to 105) but she needed a 130 to be considered for early admittance. I know there are kids out there who are turning 5 this month that won't score that high I just know it. I don't think I will ever finish my mom's purse lol!!! I frogged the socks for the 5th time I have decided that I don't like that yarn and I put it in the bottom of my stash. Today I cast on a pair with a different yarn so lets see how that goes.
