In typical Lily Bird fashion, a long weekend just wouldn't be complete without a little sprinkling of excitement.
Remember the infamous "swallowing of the plastic token" during the first week of school?
Well, sparing you lots of gory details that you'd rather not know, that little token started to cause some blockage of things not meant to be blocked. And after a Saturday trip to the hospital, that little token is no longer blocking things not meant to be blocked.
I'm sure you can read between the lines here and get my drift.
The only good thing about this unexpected hospital adventure?
The Bird was a trooper. As in, the best I've ever seen her behave in a hospital.
She took some x-rays and to my complete surprise, she got in the positions the technician requested of her and stayed there, without Ryan or I having to hold her down. It was amazing.
She was pooped out - well, not quite "pooped out".... not just yet, if you're still reading between the lines here.
Shortly after this picture, she woke up, took care of business, and we finally got to go home, where she literally ran to her bed and slept until noon on Sunday.
There was still fun to be had, though.
Labor Day found us hanging out at the splash pad...
...and having a little appetizer while waiting on some barbecue for lunch.
Today begins the second week of kindergarten.
Where there will be no more swallowing of plastic tokens, she says with fingers crossed and prayers raised to heaven.
Have a great week - see you Friday!
