That evening, Jennie babysat while we all went out to supper at the Dundee Arms. I LOVE this place! Not only do they give you a 10 dollar gift certificate for your birthday but they also have great food and good service!! We filled our bellies and then headed home for cake and ice cream and of course prezzies!! Marko gave me a beautiful bouquet of a dozen roses and a new watch. Grammie gave me 4 pairs of lovely earings. Linda and Grammie gave me the Tea Tree shampoo I had asked for and Jennie gave me a lovely set from the Body Shop.
Now for the not so good part, what we could call the Bad. Yesterday we had to say good-bye to Grammie and Auntie Linda as they were heading back to Cyprus for the year. Sean for his part was far more interested in seeing airplanes than saying good-bye at the time. He still asks for them and we tell him that he'll get to talk to them on the phone and that seems to make things alright. We certainly do miss Grammie and Auntie Linda and look forward to having them back home next summer...
Now for the Ugly. I don't suppose any of you happened to go to Wal-Mart on Saturday say around 3:30 did you? And if you did, did you happen to hear that child that was screaming pretty near at the top of his lungs to be put down on the floor? Or maybe did you see him as he took off running at top speed once his poor father decided to let him down? And then maybe you saw this same said lad get scooped back up into his Daddy's arms and in a fit of frustration he paddy-wacked his Daddy's face?!! Did you see that?!
Then consider yourself spared. I could only watch in horror as my sweet son had this complete melt down in the VERY busy Wal-Mart. We were there to get my new watch adjusted. I could have kicked myself for coming in on a Satuday of a long weekend before school starts!! Talk about courting disaster!! To add insult to injury we had to get the jewellry department associate paged like 4 times before someone realized that she was doing cash! Then to top it all off, she wasn't able to adjust the watch. I picked out a different one but I think it'll still need an adjustment as well. That said I'm going to wait awhile before I go back into that zoo again!! Phew!
After birthday supper.
