We colored a few Easter eggs, basically to survive the afternoon and so Lucy could have some protein in her lunches.
Lucy and her "niece" Nellie the dog had some sunny bonding time.
we had some very difficult and honest conversation about murder. A young woman was shot and killed 1/2 a block from our house. Lucy saw the memorial. I told her what happened. Crashed a little of the childhood innocence. Terrible.
Lucy got an appointment at Shriner's. Here she is getting fitted for a partial prosthesis. The adaptive tech dude tells her she should be able to wear flip flops. She is over the moon. Adding to her excitement was the fact that I gave her a pretend doctors exam, to calm her down and pass the time and discovered a very loose bottom tooth! Lucy is sooooo excited about loosing her first tooth.
Lucy asked for a mohawk. I wouldn't shave her head or dye it red (such a lame lame mom)
so we created a fauxhawk. it actually looks way more awesome and 'hawky in real life. She was pretty excited.
Also on Lucy's list of fun exciting things:
1. her best friend Garrett (a sub at my work) who she describes are very cute is going to get her her very own composting worms. She can't wait until they have babies.
2. she has a beetle in her bug house, which is in my house
3. the snow has all melted, which means plenty of mud
4. she has figured out how to put diapers on my mom's little doxie (dog), and can't wait to see the dog again!
