Day 8? Did not get updated for two reasons. 1. Alyssa LOST her MIND at bed time. I’m talking meltdown, scream like you are insane, make your parents want to run to the closet and cry breakdown. 2. Raina and I went out for a bit after we finally got the kids in bed!!
So… #1. That was fun. NOT. Alyssa was screaming in pain. I could not find the T3 ANYWHERE. Luckily Ms. T is my savior and replied quickly to a text telling me I could give her motrin at this point. YAY. Motrin given, she cried for another little bit… and she was OUT. This all would have REALLY sucked. Except for the fact she ate 840 calories! That is only 160 away from our ultimate goal! HUGE! So, although the last 30 minutes of the day were nerve wracking… the overall day was good.
#2. Raina needed a night out. Neil was game for playing ‘night watchman.’ We headed out. It was so nice! There is a little bar about a half a mile down the road and we had been wanting to go. It was nice to step out of mom mode a bit for two nights in a row and still know that Alyssa was well taken care of. We got home in the wee hours of the morning and headed to bed. Good stuff.
Overall day 9 was pretty uneventful. We all just kind of had a lazy day. Movies, spicy food, etc. It was a good start to the weekend. I’m starting to get excited for weigh in on Monday. I can tell Alyssa has gained weight. I just cannot wait to see how much. It’s going to be awesome if she breaks the 20 lb mark. She’s done it clothed before but never all by herself. Always just a *couple* ounces shy. LOL. Ah well, it’s Saturday night. Here’s hoping it’s a good one!
