Emergency Care

Don't worry. . . not all of Vanden's diaper changes need to be performed in an ambulance by a trained professional.

Thanks Ginny

Today when we were at the park Ginny said, "Mom, I have to go pee pee!"
Heidi responded, "Can you hold it?"
Luckily Ginny said, "Ya, but only with one hand," as she threw the ball with the other.

When Gerrit stopped by in the ambulance Ginny exclaimed,
"Look Daddy, I'm all PINK-I-LISH!

Patience is not complaining too much when your owners forget to feed you.  Then when they do, taking it one piece at a time.

 But I don't mind.

the reason

I'm the reason everyone in our house is glad that Gerrit is a paramedic.  He's used his skills on me more than anyone else in our house.

Yesterday after church I was licking my legs a lot.  Heidi thought it was weird that they were pinkish and felt bad for me.  She could not do much.  As the afternoon progressed my legs got a deeper red.  I started splattering blood everywhere as I licked frantically.  Heidi sent me outside hoping that I wouldn't die before Gerrit got home.

Gerrit came home soon and quickly discovered that it was my tongue, not legs, that were bleeding. (Who knows how I bit my tongue? )  He applied pressure despite my resistance.  Eventually the bleeding subsided.

I got to sport the cone of shame once again.

Now I'm back to normal!
Thanks to Gerrit. xoxo

future teacher?

Getting an ice cream sundae just for being a teacher seems like a good deal to me!

Just for Fun

Almost every day Ginny says, "What should we do for fun?"

It turns out that crushing graham crackers,

poking marshmallows,

dipping them in chocolate,
and then rolling them in graham crackers

can be pretty fun.

not as fun as eating them!
