What's with the movies lately?

~ There are like 3 movies out there right now about the murder of a daughter. Did all the movie studios get together and make some horrible plan? Sheesh.

~ Did I mention Karl is getting tubes put in his ears on the 25th? As it draws nearer, I'm getting more nervous. I hope they let me hold him while they put him under anesthesia like they let me do with Allison. I don't like the idea of him being awake and scared in that big surgery room without me there. It would make me feel a lot better if I knew I was able to be there for him.

~ I guess I'm not the only one who thinks Ella is a beauty. I went to Ella's school last week to pick her up from Daisy troop and I was roaming around the halls with Karl on my hip. Two teachers stopped me and said ...
Teacher1: "What a cute little baby!"
Me: "Thank you!"
Teacher1: "Oh, aren't you the mom of the little blonde kindergartner, um Emma?"
Me: "Ella?"
Teacher1: "Yes! She is the most beautiful little girl in school." Looking at the other teacher, "You know who I'm talking about right? The little rosy cheeked blonde kindergartner?"
Teacher2: "I know who you are talking about! I told my husband that if I could guarantee I would have a daughter who looked like her, I'd have another baby!"
Me: "Thank you!"

Seriously. How nice was that little conversation? Any mother loves when someone dotes on their child, but to be stopped in a hallway to hear such compliments? ~blush~

Well, I would have to say that all three of your kids are gorgeous! The two of you sure do make cute babies...

I agree, all your kids are super cute!

I'm sure they'll let you go back with Karl. Most places do. When Ella always went under we went back too. We'll be thinking of him.

I agree - all of your kids are beautiful! But it is nice to hear it when other people think your kids are as cute as you think they are!

Your kids are SO cute! So sorry to hear about Karl's tubes!! You must be so nervous. Well they'll take good care of him, I'm sure. Poor little guy!

That is sweet! And she is beautiful.

I am sure you'll be able to go back with Karl. Just tell them ahead of time that you MUST and they will make sure they find an anaesthesiologist who complies. :)

I was just thinking the same thing about the movies lately.

I hope they let you back there with Karl, they only let me back to the doors. You do have beautiful kids!

You should be able to insist on being there for Karl. Talk to the doctor as far in advance as you can, in case they need to plan for it. If you could be there for one, then there's no valid reason you can't be there for the other. Stand your ground. You stood up to a crazy carjacker (and got punched in the face for your trouble, but still ;-) you can surely stand up to a doctor.

You do make VERY good-looking children. Their picture is on my fridge with all the Christmas cards, and people comment on them all the time.
