My weekend in photos

My older son (17) had his tonsils removed this past week. The recovery as an adult is MUCH harder than it is for children. It has been pretty rough.

I am the giver of pain meds...
and popsicles...
He watched the ENTIRE Wonder Years series from beginning to end....I defy anyone to watch ONE EPISODE without crying....that Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper get me every time....

FYI: My husband was "recognized" by an older couple as in "Hey aren't you that boy from the Wonder Years?" when we lived in Seattle. (he is not Fred Savage...but he does look a lot like him!)

On Sunday my bestie Lisa went to see Sarah's is an amazing, heartbreaking movie and I would recommend it, but read the book at some point.....
One needs a lot of iced lattes to make it through the 4 am medicine alarm.
How was your weekend?


  1. Hope your son recovers quickly. I was about his age when I had mine out too...Not Fun!

    But I know you are taking good care of him.

    Loved these old picture ads!

  2. Ouch... hope he's feeling better soon! I LOVE the Wonder Years. I need to watch those again! :)

  3. i loved the book version, and just found out about the movie of sarah's key. i've added it to my netflix list, and will patiently wait for it to come out. hope your son is feeling better!

  4. Omgoodness! Hope he is feeling better asap!

    And props to y'all for watching THE ENTIRE WONDER YEARS. Wow, that's intense!

  5. God gave us too many tonsils? gallbladders? appendix?

    These organs contribute to healthy bodies and immunity.
