I’ve been absent for a few days because I’ve been so busy with, well, with life.
Our Scouting year is officially over now that Pumpkin Girl has bridged to Brownies. Boo graduated to Bears a couple of weeks ago, too. Little did we know that when we started this venture last Fall that Philip and I would both end up so involved this year and next. It’s ok, though. Even though sometimes it has us going different directions, at least we are busy with the children. That’s the good kind of busy. I’m so grateful that we both got involved. It’s been a great experience for all of us. I just wish my Daisy co-leader wasn’t moving and she could be one of the Brownie co-leaders, too. We made a good team because we both sweat the details just enough to make sure that things got done.
Bip had his VCUG on Wednesday. It was a traumatic experience for him. It’s so hard at his age, not knowing what’s going on, not understanding why Mama isn’t helping. He kept saying “up, up” the whole time. But we got through it and the medical staff at Walter Reed were kind, patient and understanding. I give them 2 thumbs up. I am so happy that we were able to have the test done there. Unfortunately he does still have reflux, though it seems to be better than last time. Hopefully he’ll outgrow it like Pumpkin Girl did. He’ll need another test in 18 months. Until then we can just forget about it. Right now, though, I’m the one still sore from the test! Spending an hour crouching over Bip, trying to hold him still has my back and arms aching today. He seems to have forgotten all about, lucky guy.
