FYI Men- Do Not Do This

Please tell me I am not the only one who saw this last night. This is REAL.

I would like to provide a public service announcement for all the husbands out there. This is creepy. Like the husband in Sleeping With the Enemy creepy. Do not do this.

So when Aidan fell a few weeks ago we tried to focus on the positive aspect of her no longer using a pacifier. Unfortunately, over the past few days we discovered that they may have been another issue. Her front two teeth were knocked pretty hard and now there's some pretty noticeable discoloration. In the grand scheme of things is this a big deal? Absolutely not, but when you combine pregnancy hormones and the first bad thing to happen to your daughter you get something resembling a small Terms of Endearment hospital fit. Needless to say I didn't handle it very well when our regular dentist informed me that it was no big deal and her teeth would fall out in 5 years anyways. Um, anyone else remember Kindergarten and 1st grade? I do I had the biggest rabbity buck teeth ever and was kind of scarred, so this did not help.

So I marched our behinds to the most Edmondy of Edmond pediatric dentists. You know what I'm talking about. Lots of video screens, charge you twice the amount they should, decor like the inside of a Chuckie Cheese. Because I knew that they are used to moms having Terms of Endearment freak outs and wouldn't bat an eye. Can I tell you that I don't care how much he overcharges me? He was so awesome and wonderful and I feel so much better about her teeth being okay and feel silly about even freaking out. I honestly don't know what came over me but I think I just went nuts remembering the teasing I endured as a little girl and the realization that there was nothing I could do to completely prevent Aidan from enduring that. We're going back in 3 weeks and my only job is to keep her from falling again because that could permanently damage them. Just keep a 2 yr old from falling for 3 weeks? Noooooo problem.

The Shrimp

I guess I should start blogging on baby #2 I don't want them to have a complex some day. According to BabyCenter Baby #2 is a shrimp now. Unfortunately, my morning sickness has not gone away with the start of my 2nd trimester so this picture makes me kind of nauseous. So sorry to any early preggos out there. I had my monthly appointment on Thursday and the baby's heart beat was 156. I don't really believe in the whole gender heart beat thing but feel free to speculate. We're supposed to find out the first week of January. My doctor reminded me that I wasn't actually supposed to try and lose weight while pregnant and I reminded him that he could shut up and pass me the trash can. Just kidding. Sort of.

Update: My doctor just called and my ultrasound got moved up til Dec. 30th! Yay.

Happy Birthday Sesame Street!

Thank you for providing the one source of entertainment my daughter loves that doesn't drive me up the wall (I'm looking at you Dora, stop yelling everything!)

In honor of little monsters everywhere, my favorite Sesame Street moment.

Could it be?!?

We have gone almost a week without Aidan's pacifier at all! We had it down to just sleeping but then she got H1N1 and seriously regressed. Last week when she fell and busted her lip open, we took the opportunity to tell her she couldn't use her pacifier because it would hurt her lips. And we have continued saying this every time she has asked for it. Perhaps your child kicked the paci at 8 months, well bully for you. I'm just so glad we seem to be done with looking for that stupid piece of plastic at all hours of the night.

Halloween 2009

The theme for Stansberry Halloween this year was movies and fortunately Aidan already had her Hermione from Harry Potter costume all picked out. I'm glad that I got to choose a good role model this last time before it turns into like Hannah Montana and cheerleaders every year.

Hermione Granger with her wand and Crookshanks the cat.

Looks like Crookshanks is about to get changed into something bad.

The Rosses were Raising Arizona.

The Evans were Dirty Dancing. Too soon Jay. Too soon. Benjamin was a fireman maybe he worked as a dancer on the weekends I'm not sure.

Ben and I completed the Harry Potter trifecta with Hermione. We were her muggle dentist parents. I thought everyone knew Hermione's parents were dentists but I guess you have to be a true fan. I am only going to be characters that allow me to wear scrubs from now on.

The Stansberry's were Woodstock, although I still think Matt looks more like Almost Famous.

Benjamin wearing his dad's Johnny Castle mullet.
