Random Ramblings about Me

I know, this blog is supposed to be about Penny. But hey, I am just as interesting and you know Penny is just doing so well that I don't have that much to talk about when it comes to her.

Actually, I do have one update about her that I can share. Scott is finally taking her to get her first blood draw for thyroid testing. I know, we should be on test #3 by now. Apparently we are really bad parents. (shame) If you notice on my link list, there is a comprehensive listing of things to have routinely checked for on your child with Down syndrome and I have ignored this.

Anyway, back to me. Last night I stopped by the Boy Scouts of America store to finally purchase my uniform shirt and all the related accessories. Nathaniel is just so excited about this and he cannot tell me enough how much he loves me when we are doing scouting things together so I know this is a great thing to do with him. I might even go all the way with him in cub scouting. I mean, what kind of message would that send if I quit? And it is only one hour a week, right? lol. When I showed him all the patches I had to sew to my shirt, Nathaniel said to me, "Mommy, it is almost Friday. You better hurry up and sew these on!" And wouldn't you know that when I called to check on him before he went to school, he asked me if I started sewing yet. I admit I was up pretty late working on this, and he was already asleep, so his concern was really sweet.

I am really having a good time with this Cub Scout stuff and by the time Nathaniel crosses over to Boy Scouts if he chooses, it will be right in time for Penny to be in 1st grade (hopefully) and she will be ready for Girl Scouts. I have already planned my out!

But for now, peace out Cub Scouts!

Wow! The apple certainly didn't fall far from the tree! I remember when your mom was Cub Scout/Boy Scout leader extraordinaire! You had a good teacher, so I bet you'll be grat scout leader!

Well, basically what happens is they get all the parents in a room and say, if one of you doesn't volunteer then there will be no den. Then all the parents look at each other until the chump stands up! lol I love it though.
