Can We Please Keep Her

I suffered two near miss heart attacks by 8:15 this morning but luckily I survived them both. The first came when I got Carly to school and then she reminded me it was picture day. They make you order the pictures the day they are taking them (so you are guaranteed to buy them even if they suck) and I didn't have the order form or money with me and I had mistakenly let Carly pick her own clothes out. So I threw the kids back in the car and drove like a bat out of hell back to the house and changed Carly's clothes and slapped a bow in her hair and off we went back to school. We made it just in time for the last bell to ring. Heart attack #1 over. I know in the grand scheme of things school pictures are no big deal, but it is Kindergarten and I did not want to screw it up, believe me, she would never let me forget it. So I got back in the car and was headed home when I noticed Kenneth had called quite a few times in a span of about a minute. I called him back and he informed me that I need to go log on to our checking account on the computer because there was no money in it. WHAT??!!?? We both got paid last week and will not get paid again for 2 weeks and we are already our of money??!!?? Luckily I logged on to find the money still there. Kenneth apparently is not so great with the ATM in the dark on his way to work. Thank God, crisis #2 averted. Monday are kind of hellish around here even without the morning drama. Carly gets home from school at 3:30. She has just enough time to change into her ballet clothes and we fly to ballet which is from 4:15-5:15 (keep in mind we live about 20 minutes from the dance studio). Another quick change and we are off to soccer from 5:30-6:30. I did not plan for things to be this hectic but they are and we are getting used to it. Carly really enjoys both activities so we will keep it up as long as we can. The kids eat dinner in the car on the way home (something healthy like uh, pizza, or Wendy's or McDonald's) and then as soon as we get home it is shower, homework, snack, books, then bed. After the shower tonight Anna proceeded to pick up the baby gate and throw it at the cat and hit her with it. She may be tiny but do not underestimate, that kid has got an arm! I spanked Anna and she of course just looked at me like "Do it again, I dare you..." and then Carly started crying. I asked why she was crying and she said,"Are we going to get rid of Anna?" I tried to stop laughing long enough to ask why and she said, "Mom, I know she is being mean but I love her. Can we please keep her?" I told her that I guessed since she had asked nicely that we could indeed keep Anna. Aside from her mean streak Anna is doing a little better. Her pH probe showed nothing but her biopsies showed reflux esophagitis. Dr. O restarted her Prevacid. She is starting to eat a little more and has put on a bit of weight. She has actually slept better the past few nights also. I hope things continue to get better. We will go back for a GI check up at the end of October and see where we stand. I am praying for at least 23 lbs...
