Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


We Have A Problem

It seems like a high number of members of our family lack self control.  Candy/junk food just does not last in our house.  If I left certain unnamed children alone with certain food items, there would not be any of those items left.  I have 2 children of a certain gender who will actually attempt, sometimes successfully, to eat large bowls of ice cream for breakfast.  Yesterday, after Mike returned home from the store with lots of stuff, I had to lay down the law regarding the consumption of junk.  I'm putting them to the test.


How long will 5.25 pounds of chocolate last in our house when left on a countertop?  My guess is not very long.  I may even have a problem.

On to another topic...Ivy's recovery.  She is doing quite well.  I'm very proud of her physical toughness of enduring what she has.  But, I do have to say she is a bit emotional and cries over things that I would not give a second thought to.  For example...she is taking an antibiotic for 10 days.  On day 6 she cried because she did not want to take anymore yummy augmentin.  We went for her post-op check yesterday.  The doctor took the bandage off her hip.  Dare I post a picture?  Will it make you ill?  I'll pass in case you are eating breakfast.  Anyway, now she can have a bath instead of a shower.  She still has to eat soft foods, and I still cannot pull her lip up to look at it or brush her top teeth.  Next week, I get to brush her teeth.  As for now, we are brushing the bottom and rinsing with warm salt water.  Her cheek is now bluish green from the bruising, but all the swelling has gone down.  This is not a real good picture, but she looks happy.

She still has has the dissolving stitches in her nose waiting to dissolve.  And she still walks with a limp, but it is less each day.  She sure has come a long way from last week.  I'm glad to have this major surgery behind us.

I guess I am off to do some school with the children.  But, who wants to do school when this is going on outside?

I'd rather sit around in my robe and drink tea.

Take the snow day. You deserve it. And, eat some chocolate, too!
