One Chicago mom's attempt to keep an accurate log so her kids will have something helpful to show the therapists.
That is so cool! What fun.
I look forward to it every year! Thanks for reading, Catie!
Great article. A screw driver through the eye? Oh my goodness!!! And your other son with blood squirting everywhere?! I am not good when it comes to blood...ugh...Yay for the men and women in uniform! In the cafeteria as well as the firestation. haha... :)
I have developed a stronger constitution with all these boys. I no longer faint. I just get woozie. Thanks for reading!
My husband is a general contractor, the closest thing to uniform is his tool belt. Which sometimes can look a little 'hot'He actually worked with a friend one day helping him out, so he had to wear a mechanics shirt and blue dickies pants. My heart melted. Doesn't take much.Great article Marianne! Blending all the components of humor, good will, camaraderie(I googled spelling, as I would have spelled it commorodorie, comraderie,commeraroaoguodhoeououy) Cool for them to be able to let off steam, build stuff and laugh. Screwdriver in eye??????? I will just stop there.:)
A tool belt works, too. Or a name badge. It doesn't take much for me either.Thanks for the kind words - I'm going to try to be all commorodorie-like today because of them.
I want to move to Chicago and join your firehouse. This is really cool stuff! I am envious of the community you have. Your kids are truly lucky.I almost fainted when I read about the screwdriver in the eye. Seriously...hard to breath when I think about that. So glad it turned out well!
You're more than welcome! Chicago would love you!If it makes you feel better, the screwdriver missed the "orb" (I think that's what it's called - the colored part of the eye) and only hit the whites of his eye. If it was a centimeter closer, I'd be calling him "Patch." For public record's sake, the kid was sitting right next to me as I was opening a present that was packaged with SCREWS (why do they do that?). I set it down with two seconds later, boom, right through the eye. Stupid, stupid Marianne.
