An entire post NOT about bedtime!

We have not yet attempted bedtime tonight yet so I have no new news from that, which I am sure you are all very glad about! However, I am a mom and I guess I fall under the category of mommy bloggers so this post is about the week's activities of my dear son, of course!

Today we visited Hoss's Ear, Nose and Throat doctor and now have a date scheduled for tubes. I am very relieved already. I know this is what Hoss needs and what I have been advocating for over the past few months and finally it has paid off. Now I just have to keep him well until February 22nd, which is not an easy task for this child!

Yesterday we picked up Hoss's new glasses! And what perfect timing. Hoss's glasses have looked like this for the past few months:

There are so many things wrong with the old glasses. The most signficant one was the broken right side taped together which did not hold the arm correctly so it turned in the wrong direction. The glasses were also so bent out of shape they would barely stay on Jake's face. A little over a week ago we went and picked out some new glasses. Thankfully Hoss was picked up on Donnie's vision insurance in January so we saved about $250! That, my friends, warmed my frugal, deal-barginning heart.

Here is Hoss yesterday with the new and definitely improved glasses.


There is plenty of room for Hoss to grow into these glasses and I pray that they will last us awhile. Ok, who am I kidding? At least these have a year warranty, that would make 2 frames for the price of one. I am certain that warranty will be cashed in...that's just the way we roll!

He is SUCH a handsome little guy!!!

I'm so grateful that you're not putting him in "nerd" glasses...

Hang in there on the bedtime deal. He'll get it... some just take longer than others. Be strong!

And he is just precious!

I love his red hair!!! I like his new glasses too. I had tubes in my ears several times when I was a kid...they fell out usually. They are probably much improved now - man, they really help! It's a pain come bath and pool times though!
Hang in there sleepy lady!

I love the new glasses, he looks so much more grown up!

You guys will get the sleep thing down-has Donnie tried? I know with our little one, Tim just has to say, "Go to sleep" and he does. Won't listen to me if I say it though...

He looks so handsome in his new glasses! Love that they were covered by insurance!
