Kids can be stubborn at times.

Sometimes, it is cute.

Other times, the floor opening up and falling in would be a relief from the absolutely overwhelming temper tantrum.

Ultimately, it does serve them as, it helps them move past obstacles that seem insurmountable.

It’s part of the human nature to respond to “You can’t do that”, with “Oh yeah?  Watch me.

Busy week with the family

December 5, 2011

This past week has been a busy one.

Last Sunday, Tate had hockey practice at 11:00.  I took him to church, and left at about 10:20.  We got to the arena and on the ice by 11:00, which was a significant feat, considering it was about a 20 minute drive.

Sandra woke up feeling dizzy, and it passed fairly quickly.  About 2:00, she started feeling dizzy again, and it lasted all day.  Monday morning, she woke up not feeling any better.  We got an appointment to see the doctor around lunch.  He gave a diagnosis of BPPV, which is form of vertigo aggravated by moving.  It may last up to 30 days.  He gave her a prescription as well.

On Wednesday, she felt much better.

Thursday was not real great.  We had an appointment with a physiotherapist, which we had been waiting for months for.  We attended, and I went off to work.  Sandra ended up walking to and from school to pick up Tate.   The day did not end really well.

On Friday, I was going to a different place for work.  I had made arrangements to drop Tate off with a friend from school to walk him to school.  By lunch, Sandra still was not feeling well.  She managed to go to school and get Tate, and was not feeling well.

Tate had a 7:15 hockey game on Saturday.  We ended up getting a babysitter to stay with P and Reid.

P had a visit that morning. We had the adoption Christmas party mentioned in another post.

Today has been a better day, from the perspective of Sandra feeling better.

Lots of screaming, yelling, and complaining.  From two of three, by the end of the day.

Sandra felt good for the day.  We then
