There were several missions accomplished yesterday.
In no particular order, Thursday proved productive in that:
- I convinced my neighbor to pillage my jewelry so that I could downsize. Loved giving that away!
- Bennett learned how to mimic me and trumpet like an elephant through his lips, lifting his little chin as if tossing an invisible trunk. You’re welcome, world.
- some lamb cubes that had been forgotten in the freezer made their way into my crock pot and I managed to pull off a top notch roast sans recipe. As much as I hate to accept this, the key was browning the lamb first. Crock pot meals are a little less thrilling when they call for more than one step, but Rachael Ray told me that there are new crock pots out there that brown the meat first right there in the pot. What?! Fancy twenty-first century…
- at least two loads of laundry got put away. Victory! That almost never happens on the same day that I make my bed… and do the dishes… and make breakfast from scratch… and freeze baby food. Square Piece is on a part-time homemaker roll! Watch out!
Now, here’s a matter that I’d like to air strictly on Square Piece. (Puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeease don’t comment to this on Facebook. The last time that I brought up a medical/health question on Facebook, I wound up worrying about something that was nothing and footing a $900 bill of blood tests that got incorrectly coded. Took an entire year and countless phone calls to sort out that mess!)
When Bennett gets really tired and starts rubbing his eyes, every now and then one eye will get lazy. While it’s usually his right eye, it isn’t always. This hasn’t been a huge concern for me being that I assume his body is getting stronger and more developed every day, including his eye muscles, and it never happens when he’s not sleepy. The pediatrician, however, said that normally this type of thing doesn’t linger past the third month and obviously suggested that I take him to an ophthalmologist.
Okay, hear me loud and clear, the appointment has been scheduled.
In the meantime, I’d love to know if any of you mommies out there have ever noticed this in your kiddos. How aggressively have you managed a sleepy, wandering eye or have you let it correct itself over time? Any experience in this arena?
