Space cadet

We went to visit the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum today, because our little boy adores planes and rockets. He walked around the whole time saying "walket." Here is one of way too many pics:
Then after J's nap we rode a train in a nearby park. Worst 20 mins of the day easily. J was tired and cranky and wanted to do anything else since we really wanted to ride the train because we thought he would enjoy it. It's a twisted cycle I think. It was very crowded and my new to potty-training boy felt like he needed to share with everyone that he had to visit the facilities. That's being kind. Only one photo from the train, I don't wish to remember it!
Thinking I really need to make another medication list for my dog. I can't remember all this! He was on 4 medications last month. He is on 4 new medications this month. Some are 1/2 pill twice a day, some are 3/4 pill three times a day. Some must only be taken with food. Some must never EVER be taken with food. The penalty for screwing this up? Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. No pressure. That's all I need is a dog leaking from every end. I'm certain that will improve my memory. There is a lot of medication to keep up with, and with this going on the second month I'm fatigued. And nothing from last month carried over, so I can forget everything I thought knew. I'm fairly certain I've earned an honorary degree in pharmacy. Or at least a very fruity margarita to go with my chips and guacamole. If I wasn't convinced we were over prescribing drugs in the medical profession, I am now. 
O-M-G, Greys! What a great season finale! Did you scream? I did! You know the part. It's going to be a long summer waiting. Hoping to edit some of these photos and scrap later tonight. Looking forward to one of the new AKOTC June kits that is on it's way: new Jenni Bowlin Front porch and Websters pages Cherry pie. I can't wait to see what embellishments Laura has discovered for us. Hope you are having a great weekend. Until tomorrow (I'll probably still be looking for the dog's pill cutter).

Really, more dog pills?! I'm sorry Danielle that is not fun no matter how you look at it. The photos are very cool though, slightly edgy, I really dig the train one.

Oh man - it's that love-hate relationship with doing what we think is the right thing to do only to learn it wouldn't have mattered in the end if we'd just done something else, or different or nothing at all other than just loved on our kids. But it's all trial and error with parenting. There are no predictable rules. And I just had to chuckle at the last post with J in the end. Now that was a very typical, yet priceless toddler moment.

love your blog post title- lol
I told you Grey's was something! I was shocked! I knew about Izzy, but they sure got me at the end. Kinda like the Titanic ending wasn't it? ugh! I can't wait for next season. Good luck with your pooch. xOxO
