Kool-Whip is not just for eating~!

Picked up Ben at 2:15 today at daycare.. He was sound asleep and Kaylee his teacher had to wake him up.. She said he went to sleep at 12:30.. All the little kids were sleeping. Ben had to go to the Doctor's office to have a physical and get his yearly shots.. He was great all through the different things like, weighing, how tall he is now, looking at his ears and listening to his heart.. He wanted the Dr. to check Nibbles heart to make sure it was O.K. I thought that was so cute. Nibbles passed with flying colors. Dr. said Nibbles is good.. Ben told her "That is good".. He loves his Nibbles..(a stuffed rabbit). Then the alarms went off when he heard the Dr. tell me he needed some shots.. He told me "Lets get out of here"... I talked with him and tried to console him.. Two nurses came into the room armed with 4 different needles.. His eyes got really big.. One nurse put his legs over the table and leaned on them and I had the arms,head and upper body.. 2 shots in each leg and Ben crying "Save me GranAnnie" "Save Me... I held him tight crying myself and telling him that I was sorry it hurt so bad. poor guy.. The girls quickly left us after putting four shiny bright silver bandaids on his legs.. He looked at me and said "That's not nice.. that hurts"... I said yes you are right... He said 'Can we go to McDonalds and get a toy?..." I said sure...So I quickly got him dressed and got his boot back on his leg and we left.. I had put some candy in my pocket for him , Starbursts, he loves them..So when we got to the car he ate his starbursts.. and then drove to McDonalds.. He got a useful toy this time.. Most of the time McDonalds toys I think are not that great.. We got home and played Thomas the Train.. and did some puzzles.
After supper I got out the Kool Whip I had brought with me and I colored it red , turned out pink.. I put a huge glob on the while board that we have and we practiced making letters.. B for Ben and D for David his middle name and V for his last name . We had lots of fun making circles, squares, retangles and then he put his whole hand onto the board and then put it on his face... He said "I'm a clown".. Yes you are a clown, one sticky clown. He licked the sticky Kool Whip off his hands and said "Hmmmm that tastes good".. I washed him up and gave him some chocolate pudding with lots of Kool Whip on top.. He said "that was fun".. Lets do it again.." I told him we would do it the next time I came to take care of him. He said "Alright".. I love it when he says that.


After his bath we played super nintendo,,Mario and Luigi racing in cars.. that was fun. read 3 books and then off to bed.. It took him awhile to settle down and then finally he gave up and went to sleep.. There is nothing sweeter than looking at a child sleeping, so peaceful. What a boy.. love him dearly..
After awhile Tracie came home and I came home.. Tracie is going to school to be a Massage Therapist.. She had lots of studying to do and get ready for work for the next day..
Weather today is sunny and 43 degrees.. Really nice day~! Dave left this morning to help a guy he knows work on his John Deere B Tractor.. So I decided this would be a good time to rearrange the living room furniture and do some deep cleaning.. Can't seem to get that done when he is here. So Ta Ta For Now...from Iowa..

Ooooooo! Poor Bennie. Sorry you had to get your four year old shots but they will make you strong and healthy. I'm so glad Nibbles is okay also. I wonder what he would think if they gave Nibbles a shot first????? Great idea with the Cool Whip and what fun.
