Fireworks, Power Outage, Smoke Alarms, and a Swollen Eye

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my. All the kids were just settling in for bed the night before last night when the booming of fireworks launched them all out of their beds and instantly to the windows to watch. When there are fireworks locally we can usually get a good view from one side of the house or the other. When the fireworks were over, we started the bedtime routine again. Like it wasn’t fun enough the first time (oh no, I didn’t just say that). All the kids were settled once again, in their beds, when everything suddenly …

As If We Didn’t Have Enough Excitement Already…

Everyone was lounging around the living room tonight when Moses (9) comes up to us and says, "I swallowed a metal ball. I didn't mean to. Am I going to die?" Of course, the mama in me goes into a slight panic. I called my mama. And then I head to Google. Google gives me weird results, so I head to Bing. I read through some stories and realized things might not be as bad as they first seemed. I phoned our doctor to see if there was a number for a doctor on call. I wrote down the number …
