Busy Bee's

I’m trying to figure out where I’ve been the past couple weeks. I don’t think I’ve stopped for two straight weeks. Since I last blogged, I attended a wedding of one of my guy friends from high school. None of my friends’ husbands could go, so JM stayed home with Ryder and I had a night out with the gals.

Here we are with mother of the groom, Mrs. Cydney

Dancing to The Jarekus Singleton Band!  A guy we graduated high school with, they are sooo good.

Later in the week we went for Ryder's 2nd tube follow up.  I failed to mention before that when we went for his first tube follow up, there was some type of scab blocking the right tube, so it wasn’t working correctly. To fix it, we had to squirt hydrogen peroxide into his right ear a couple times a day. The doctor said we would know it was working when we squirt it in and he screams bloody murder. Great way to know it’s working, right? So of course he fussed everytime we did it because it was probably really cold going down, so we weren’t sure it was working or not, and just quit doing it.  So we had to go to another follow up last week to make sure it did work… it didn’t. So I had to hold my child down while that doctor stuck some long needle deal down in his ear and suck something out (I was NOT looking) and he got the scab out. He was like “See, look! It’s not that bad!” OMG I did not want to look, but I didn’t want to look afraid of something in my own child’s ear, so I bit the bullet. I almost threw up, I’m not good with anything associated with a needle or anything that looks like a needle with bloody stuff on the end. Ouch. Good news is it’s all better and hopefully he won’t get any ear infections from here on out.


May has been a very busy month for us.  This past weekend John Michael went on a golf trip to somewhere in Alabama that was 6 hours away (can’t think of it right now). But this is the picture he emailed me of his view. Very pretty.

I went on a girls trip to the coast. Months ago we planned to go to Lake Bruin, but scratched that idea a couple weeks ago when the flooding began. Kristen had a connection at the IP Casino, so we got two free rooms for two nights. I always love getting a weekend away with these girls, but this mama was missing her little munchkin! Here are some highlights of the weekend.

Quick dinner on the way into town.

Dinner in Ocean Springs Saturday night.

 And when I pulled up in the driveway from being gone our pretty flowers had bloomed!

Ryder helped his daddy plant these by the way.  Seriously, I just watched.  After emptying the flower pots, or tups (cups) as Ryder called them, he stayed busy by counting them one by one and stacking them while JM finished the job.

Love his smile when it's sunny outside, scrunches that nose up.


Ryder has counted to 10, even 14 many times, but I have never been able to catch it on video, and did tonight.  He's a smart lil monkey.  Proof below:

Today was also water day at school, Ryder played in the big pool (I stole this picture from his teacher's facebook page, thanks Miss Jessica)

Ryder loves his Miss Jessica, this is his last week with her before he moves up to the next class.

Last week was Prince and Princess day.  We didn't have any prince attire, obviously, so luckily they made hats at school.

Sweaty child blowing bubbles (he drank half the bottle I do believe).

For about a month now, I’ve started back walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day. Working out is dreadful to me, I wish I had that bone in my body that people have that makes them want to get up at the crack of dawn and exercise. The only thing that gets me through these 30 minutes is a book. I just walk and read. I made a list of 5 or so books I wanted to purchase for this new venture. As I put them in my “cart” on Amazon and saw the numbers add up, I thought, why not just check these books out at the local library. So, I am the proud new owner of a library card!  Clinton has a fabulous brand spanking new library, and I feel like I need to put it to use.

Look, isn’t she pretty!

Wouldn't you go too if your library looked like that? 

My new card and the books I chose.
I love a good suspense novel.

One more Ryder story:
This morning when I dropped him off, his teacher Mrs. Trina said, “Mrs. Wilson, I gotta tell you somthin” (I was nervous). She said yesterday when she was putting Ryder down for a nap, he said “Mrs. Trina I poop”, she checked his diaper and told him that there was nothing in his diaper. She said not five minutes later, he said, “Mrs. Trina I poop, I stinky,” and sure enough she looked in his diaper and he had a big ole’ poop. WOW! He knew it was coming! Not quite sure I’m ready to potty train, but at least he’s getting the idea.


Speaking of a busy May, we are leaving Saturday for seven days at the beach with John Michael's family, and are sooo looking forward to it!  Ryder has never been... any tips for taking a 1 1/2 year old to the beach?
