If raising electronics-dependent children gets you parent of the year then we are right on track! On Sundays we make our kids give up their gadgets. I thought it was funny the next day when I was tidying up to see the random assortment of toys that were used in their place.

Anyway, our week was filled with more birthdays and more parties. What better way to survive the long winter months?!
Adrie turned 8
This is an important milestone in our family because not only do you get to be baptized you also get your ears pierced.
The event proved very traumatic for this 8-year old. Her older sisters came along for moral support and on the drive shared their own comforting experiences.
Kate said it felt like hot knives going into your ears. Brynn disagreed, "No it's more like getting stung by seven wasps." I thought it reminded me more of getting your ears stapled.
Adrie went into hysterics. It took psych consults from 3 different salon technicians and me holding her to get the job the done. Now that it's all over Adrie smiles and says it wasn't so bad.
As I mentioned earlier, Adrie will be getting baptized which happens to be on the weekend of Kate's birthday. So, we had to schedule Kate's party a little earlier. That meant Adrie's and Kate's parties were on the same day! I so do not recommend this!
Here's hoping for a less eventful week!
