Day 824: Longevity

Today was Little M's pre-K physical.  We all shared a Joyful Moment when the doctor announced that he'd had his booster shots last year and didn't need any today.

But the Joyful Moment I experienced when she offered to freeze off his nasty wart right then and there, might have been mine alone.

I'm pretty sure he got it at the swimming pool.  I was trying to treat it with essential oils, but I'm way too forgetful to do it with any sort of consistency.  So, when I was asking for a dermatologist recommendation and she said she'd take care of it today, it was a Joyful Moment for me.

Not so much for Little M who had heard scary stories from HH about how they take care of wart removal.  He was super brave, though, and blinked back his tears during the painful part of the procedure.  Cute, but kind of makes me sad to see my Little M trying so hard to be tough.  What is it that compels men (big and small) to do this?

Anyway, for those of you ready for a complete subject change--my main Joyful Moment today was remembering throughout that it was my parents' 37th wedding anniversary.  How fabulous is that?  I'm so blessed to have such wonderful parents who are completely committed to each other and great examples of love.

So, congratulations, you two!  Thanks for being so amazing and wonderful!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that come from great commitment!

After Dad & I celebrated our anniversary, we went to one those sales gimmick meetings (that I DETEST!) but the receptionist was so impressed with the logevity of our marriage that she asked for advice. Dad thought she was kidding, but she seemed very sincere to me so I gave her one tip after another. And before she left to go home, she came and found us to say "Thanks" and that she'd already called her HH to tell him about it. :)

I hope she wrote it down!
