Happy 10th Birthday Aidan!

We went to Medieval Times for his birthday with one of his friends and we had a blast! Afterwards we came home and opened presents.  He really wanted a new nintendo 3DS...

I don't think he was at all excited about it ;)  He has gymnastics practice later where I am surprising him with cake and then it's off to his birthday dinner at the Outback.  What a great birthday he is having!

Day 122

The last day of school before spring break! Of course with snow on the group I am not sure it really feels like spring.  Aidan is so excited for his birthday next week! We are not doing a party this year, he and a friend will probably just go bowling or to a movie.  He has gymnastics practice on his birthday so I ordered an ice cream cake to bring there for all the kids to sing to him then we will go out to dinner after practice.

Day 121

I'm going out on a limb here and posting this. Yesterday was a snow day, welcome to spring. Last night we got more snow and there is a two hour delay. I had to drive over the mountain to get to work today and everything looked good so I don't know why they wouldn't have school. I have no idea how they are going to make up this day. So obviously lacrosse was cancelled last night but I was surprised that gymnastics was closed also, good thing he did an extra gymnastics practice on Tuesday.

Day 120

This is a typical pajama outfit for Aidan. I think he goes out of his way to mismatch. Those particular spongebob bottoms we given to him and he wears them all the time. They also happen to be 3 sizes too big. He rolls the waist several times to help keep them from falling.

Day 119

Wow the second day of spring and there is a two hour delay from school because of the snow last night. It wasn't much snow but then it rained and it's all slushy out.

Day 116

He has been up and down all night. Around 4:30am he woke me up because his light was on. Just gymnastics today.

Day 115

What a busy day yesterday! It was quite the mess changing into three different getups every hour it seemed but he enjoyed it. Lacrosse was moved outside yesterday and it was a bit chilly. His poor hands were purple and he didn't have the thin liner gloves in his pockets just his thicker gloves. No other kid was cold but every other kid is twice his size.

Day 114

What a fun meet yesterday! After Aidan was done competing he wanted to stay to watch his other teammates so it ended up being a long day. I hope you are enjoying the video, I haven't even looked at the pictures yet to see if I got anything good. We are all exhausted because of daylight savings since we lost an hour of sleep when we had to get up at 5:30am which certainly felt like 4:30am. Today is quite the busy day. They moved up lacrosse practice by an hour so while I was going to have Aidan go to gymnastics practice for 2 hours then go to lacrosse I didn't feel an hour of gymnastics was worth it but he wants to go. So we are going to gymnastics from 4-5 then lacrosse from 5:30-7:00 then to the church for some sort of penance renewal at 7:30. I can't believe he wants to do it all!

Well after all the tears yesterday morning he felt better pretty quickly. He ate normal food yesterday and never complained about the pain again. I should have known better, he has a high pain tolerance and always has. But there was no way to know and had to make the best decision we could at 6am. Needless to say his gymnastics coach is pretty happy about it. Tough practice today to prepare for states tomorrow.

Day 113

That is the only smile Aidan had this morning. He needed to wake up early to work on school work he missed yesterday and wasn't able to complete last night due to his first lacrosse practice last night (which on a side note was an awesome practice and a great start to the year). When I got out of the shower he was sitting at the table crying his eyes out from the pain :(. I gave him advil and rubbed some anbesol on his gums which took the edge off. I knew it would be worse today I didn't expect it this bad. We made the decision to keep him home today because it's just not worth it. Since I had to give him advil at 6am he will need it again at noon and the nurse can't give it to him. He should get better every day. Now I understand why his gymnastics coach was so mad I did this 4 days before states.

day 112--braces!

Aidan did vey well getting his braces. He is not sure about how they feel but I did convince him to go to school. His lunch is at 11 and that is when we got home so he is eating real fast and off to school he goes.

Day 111

Tomorrow is the big day and I am not looking forward to it. Aidan got his lacrosse stick back last night from being re-strung and he loves it.

day 110

Aidan had a rough practice last night. at the very end of the night he was tired and sore and in his frustration he told his coach to shut up. of course he was spoken to by his coach and then in trouble at home. he was in a much better mood today and hopefully this was a one time occurrence because we do not say that phrase in our house at all!

Day 109

This will be the last good shot of his teeth before he gets his braces on thursday.  Thursday is the big day so the post will go up late as the appointment is at 9:30am.  His state championship meet is also this coming weekend and which he hopes to qualify for regionals which takes place in april.  If he qualifies the meet is in pennsylvania this year thank goodness. Last year it was in virginia.

Day 108

TGIF!! aidan is adjusting well to the spacers though he says they still feel weird.

Day 107

It well at the orthodontist yesterday. They did xrays, took molds, and put in the spacers. The spacers are little rubber bands that were placed in between two back teeth. He isn't happy about it but says it just feels weird. I can only imagine how unhappy he will be next week when he gets his braces.

Day 106

Today I am picking Aidan up from school early to bring him to the orthodontist.  Today I think they will be doing a full mouth xray and taking impressions and also putting in two spacers, whatever they are.  Next week he gets his braces.

Day 105

He has been up bouncing around since I think 4:30am. He had a good practice last night.
