Got a couple dents in my fender.......

Okay, so last night was a concert with one of Janae's favorite singers. Franschesca Batastelli. As soon as she heard on the radio that she was going to be here in town, she started asking if we could go. How can you refuse that? It was at 1st Baptist, the doors opened at 6, and we got there about 10 minutes later. We got great seats, it was in the balcony, right above the sound board, so no one was right in front us, and you all know that if you have a 9 and 6 year old, that is huge. So here she is........ Now, this was my view for the first half of the night. One of the two little girls that was sitting on the same "pew" as we were didn't seem to know the meaning of "personal space". Well maybe she did, and thought she needed to be in mine. She touched me more than my own children. I was jostled by this child the entire night. ARGH! Mom was too busy recording on her camera to pay attention to the child. I have to tell first how it started as soon as we sat down. Brought both kids something to do, because Hunt didn't want to come in the first place, and secondly, we were going to be sitting there an hour waiting for it to start, and mama has done this before. Makes my life much easier when my cutie pies aren't bored. We sat down, (other kids were already there), and I pull out Hunt's DS. Kid #1 immediately asks if she can have it to play with. Uh, NO!!!! Janae starts her drawing. Kid #1 asks if she can draw on Janae's pad. Uh, NO! I didn't bring them stuff to do for the kids next to us to take away. And mom is just sitting there letting her do it. Then, during intermission, she (kid) asks me "Um, excuse me, is your daughter all right?" To which I reply, yes, she's fine. "Then why does she have to wear those things for her eyes?" This kid was at least 8 years old. What??? I just told her, "she's fine". Kid #2 is the one who was practically on top of me the entire night. I do hate to complain too loudly, because at least my kids could see, and that's what really counts. My nerves were just about shot by the end of the night, though.
Leeland=loud, as Janae would say! They were really good, but I hadn't been to a concert in a very long time, and it was very loud. I'm so getting old.

So, by ten o'clock the show is finally over. It was pretty long to have the kids out. Janae wanted a pic with Franchesca soooooo bad. I heard someone say that it was going to be another 30 minutes before they came out, and told her we were going to have to leave. It's a school night for heaven's sake. A Sunday at that, so they have all week to go. Her eyes just started filling with tears, so I gave in and we stayed. By the time we left it was 11:00, but we got the picture. She has the rest of her life to recover from the late night, but this may be the only chance she had to get this picture. I can't help but be thankful that she wants to go hear someone who loves the Lord and isn't begging to see Britney or Madonna or someone like that.

Okay, I'm trying to post a video, never done that before, but it's been trying to post for 20 minutes, and it's time for me to go to bed. If it's here great, if not I may try again tomorrow.

With age comes wisdom.....or at least wisdom teeth!!

So, yesterday, was my semi-annual dental appointment. Not a big deal, never have had any problems with my teeth, not even a cavity. A fact that I am quite proud of. As she was finishing up, the hygenist said, "oops, I almost missed that wisdom tooth!" WHAT???? My wisdom teeth are supposed to be waaaaay up there. NO where near to cutting. So, as I am saying "WHAT???" with her hands in my mouth, I start to worry a bit. Anyone who knows me at all, knows I FREAK OUT at the thought of a needle getting close to me. I DON'T do needles. At all. To the equivalent of having natural childbirth because an epidural involves a needle. Anyway, the dentist comes in and says all looks good, not a word about the horrid tooth that is making it's unwanted way into my mouth. I'll start praying now, hopefully it will come in just fine and not bother me. My dad and brother have both had to have their's cut out, so that doesn't bode well for me. Although I told hubs, that would probably account for all the headaches I've been having recently! Ugh! I'm too old to be cutting teeth.....on another note, we had parent/teacher conferences today, and Hunt's teacher wants to test him for gifted/talented. I'm sorry to say that she really surprised me with that. He's an adorable kid, and he's always thought "outside the box", but I never even thought about it. That's just him. He tested really well in the TPRI's earlier this year, on some levels way above the average, but she said it's the way he thinks that is making her think he might make it into GT. Anyone who's ever had him, even in PDO has come up and told me some of the funny/crazy things he's said, he just pulls stuff out of the air, and sounds like a hilarious kid that's twice his age. She did say that the testing takes all year, and if he makes it, he wouldn't start it until 2nd grade, so I'll keep you posted! Bye for now....
