Updates on Us :-)

Everything here is going well :-) Jadyn is FINALLY pooping on the potty. Just when I thought I might possibly believe she would really go to high school using a diaper to poop..... she got it!! Why does it always seem just when I think I have finally had enough she starts doing what I want her to do?? She just knows these things, I swear!

Last week Jadyn and I went to Tractor Supply to get some bird food and some seeds so I could start a little garden with J. They had some baby chicks and ducks in the store. They were so cute and Jadyn just couldn't get enough. Jadyn was standing there looking at the cute little birds when she decided to touch the heat lamp would be a fantastic idea. She received burns to 3 of her fingers. My first thought was to get her out of the store and get something cold on it. AND That is just what I did. I called her doctor and they told me just to bandage it after all of the blistering was done. I then decided I better call Tractor Supply and let them know that they need to cover those heat lamps if they are going to be keeping them in a child's reach. The manager acted like a complete Doodah..... " Well. most of the heat lamps are covered." Well idiot, MOST is obviously not good enough.
I then called the corporate offices. All I wanted was to make sure they keep the lamps covered so no more bitty fingers get scorched. I just wanted to call this to their attention before it happened to another child. I know A LOT of people are sue happy. They are pretty lucky they came across me....... I have better things to do than to sit in a court room over something as minor as this. If it would have been her face or was going to cause drastic scarring that would be a whole other issue.
Anyway, Jadyn is healing up nicely and almost all of the blistering had reabsorbed already!! 'Tractor Supply is sending her a $25.00 gift card. They really didn't have to. I just don't want any more baby fingers to get burned.
Sue is falling to She had a groin injury way back in November?!?! Hell, I don't remember when it was. She is still having pain from that and is scheduled to go see a surgeon on Wednesday. She is also suffering from a pretty painful case of tennis elbow right now. So she is about as helpful as a rock right It is no fault of her own so I guess I will keep her around for a little longer :-)
