I'll start off with the broken wing. For those of you that visit often, you might remember back in May 2011 Baby Bee broke her left arm at school.
she's done it again, only this time it's her RIGHT arm - the one she happens to write with! She was playing ferociously in a rec league basketball game last night and guarding her cousin (Reader Bee) and as she chased her down court she tripped and fell. Fell hard.
Okay, now this a mom moment that I didn't quite know what to do. I wanted to run right out on the court and scoop her up but I didn't want her to be embarrassed. So I sat there hoping and praying she would get up and shake it off. That didn't happen so I scurried out on to the court and we got her up and to the bench. She was crying so much. I was afraid it was broken, but she had good movement so I was hoping it wasn't. She kept telling me this morning as we drove to the Urgent Care that she was so glad when she saw my face pop up from behind all the people surrounding her on the court. I was so glad I was there for her too. She got her x-rays and it's definitely broken. Tomorrow I hope we can get in to her regular doctor and find out if needs a cast or a splint. And while I'm there I'll ask him if I should wrap her in bubble wrap. I will reassure him that I will leave a hole so she can breathe.
Which brings us to the project that just doesn't seem to get going, but I'm forcing it along now.
The painting of Baby Bee's room.....
Before her game last night we cleaned and packed and moved furniture around so we could paint this afternoon. The trip to the doctor today slowed down our plans a bit, but I think we can finish it up by Tuesday. At least I hope so 'cause I don't want to see all of her furniture in the living room any longer than I have to.
We last did Baby Bee's room when she was about to turn 4 in 2005 and we all loved it, but it was just too sweet for the young lady she is becoming. Redoing it is her 11th birthday present.
I painted the scallops because I did not think I could live with an entire room of pink. So we compromised and I painted about 2/3 of the wall pink and the top 1/3 a very soft green. Since she was so young I got to have lots of say in what went in there,
Can I have a shout out for my scallops? I am still so stinkin' proud of how cute they look!
It was a very feminine room for my sweet girly girl.
But times change and pink is not her favorite color anymore.
It's now TURQUOISE!
I think I've picked up paint chips from every store in town!
Thank you Home Depot for custom mixing samples!
I painted several spots around the room.
The lighter color is "Refreshing Pool" and the darker color is "Aqua Spray."
I'm currently leaning towards the darker color and Baby Bee likes the lighter. Maybe Worker Bee will be the deciding vote. (On second thought, Worker Bee is way too smart to get caught in the middle of that decision.)
We won't be able to finish the room this weekend, but Baby Bee goes to Winter Camp next weekend so we'll be able to do a few things to surprise her while she's gone.
And, I'm sure I'll still have several little projects to complete before we poke a stick in it and call it done!
Thanks for buzzing by today! I'm so delighted to see you!
I'll be trying a new recipe this week....one I found on Pinterest, of course, for a Tiramasu bundt cake!
Sound good? I'll be sure to save a piece for you!
