Okay there is no segway for my next item up for discussion, so I'll just dig right in. Kind of like we did to Dallas' ear when I burned the wax out of them. Just kidding, there was no digging involved, but I'm posting a picture of this because no matter how many people I had try to describe this to me, I just didn't get it until I saw it, so let me give you a visual.
The following may be classified under the "Too much information" category, but it's kind of cool so allow me to explain. Dallas has one ear that produces normal wax, and one that doesn't seem to give up any, and the Dr. told me he has some calcified ear wax in that ear. I was a bit embarrassed by this fact, even though I do feel that I clean his ears often enough, she said it just happens sometimes for no rhyme or reason really. At his last Dr. appointment they tried to flush out the ball of wax with no luck. After telling this to a few people they told me to try these ear wax candles that you can buy at the health food store that burn, create a suction somehow and suck out all the ear wax. Huh? So I bought them, we tried them, they were cool, I was amazed at how much ear wax came out, but I think he still has the ball of wax in his ear, so to speak. So conclusion: they were fun to do, got a lot of ear wax out, but didn't solve our little problem. Any suggestions?
From ear wax to movies. We saw two movies last weekend that I've been meaning to give two thumbs up to. We rented Stardust, and I must say I really liked it. Kind of quirky and fun, it was a really cute love story. I don't think it got the good press it deserved. Travis liked it too. We also went to see Juno. I'd say it lives up to its hype, it was a really cute movie, very character driven, I liked it. But do have to note that this is about teenage pregnancy, and there is a semi-nude (think arms and legs, no real parts) love scene. It's really kind of more awkward and funny than sexy. That being said, I really liked it, and so did Travis.
Movies to American Idol. I won't say much to bore you except that I'm a big AI fan, and am so happy to have something to watch two nights a week! I really think that they've toned down the meanness from last year when it comes to the rejects, and I think there is already some real talent going to Hollywood, looks like this should be a good season!
And one more picture for my friend Autumn, I finally finished your burp cloths and they are on their way to you! I hope they make it before your German baby boy, Congratulations!
