We'll take the good news....

and the bad.  We went to Primary Children's today for what I thought was an appointment with a pediatric orthopedic doctor (are they all surgeon's?).  As most of you know Dalton is a tip-toe walker and I guess based on what I told the 18 secretaries and medical assistants I spoke to on the phone they determined I needed to see a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.  But no one told me this.  Not even the self important surgeon herself until I in all my ignorance asked if she would be doing the surgery.  To which she replied "That is why you are here!"  "Is this the first you have heard any of this?"  Um yeah that is why I have this shocked look on my face.  Thanks for asking!!!!! 
Well that is not exactly why we were there.  We were there because Dalton can not stand balanced on his flat feet and I thought maybe he needed some physical therapy or something.  What he got was an xray from the waist down and an appointment for a surgical procedure to uncontracture his achilles tendons on both legs.
He then has to wear cast boots for 6 weeks!  
We were all a little shocked and Dalton is very concerned about the casts!  There is nothing wrong with him.  He is still my sweet Dalton that he was when we left the house this morning at 8:30 am.  We just get to worry about the next thing we have to do!!

This was us at the doctors office trying to kill time while waiting for the SURGEON (lest I forget)!!  Oh just incase any of you are related to a pediatric orthopedic surgeon I apologize for my offensive comments.  (Wear your badge with your credentials if you need to be treated different than any other human!!)
We are wearing red for the parade for the football team this afternoon!  Go UTES!

I swear we have enough idiots in this world!!! Good Luck Dalton, I bet the casts will be red too!!!

Wow, I can't believe that. I hope it goes well and he recovers quickly. I wonder if he has the same Dr. as Adalie, she see's an Orthopedic Dr. at Primary Childrens all the time for her foot too. I thought of you when that parade was on tv today, how fun! We will be thinking of Dalton.

Seriously?! that is so crazy.... all of it! Good luck with everything. When is the surgery?
Crazy!!! I am sorry he his having to go through all bad is the tip toe walking...My Dallin is really bad..he says it doesn't feel right to walk flat footed...should I be concerned? Call me... later!
Tough break Dalton! I really loved the orthopedic surgeon that did Lainey's arm. She didn't make me feel like an idiot at all. Her name is Teresa Hennessey, her office is at shriners and she does her surgeries at PC. Good Luck

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

 I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned

Firmoo Glasses Review

When Firmoo contacted me about trying out a pair of their glasses I was thrilled.  Although I don't wear glasses my husband does and he is always in need of a new pair.  So we went to their site and picked out a great pair for him to try out. He has been wearing them for about 10 days and he LOVES them.  They fit well, the prescription is correct, and they look great on him.  Well see for yourself. The glasses shipped quickly and safely.  They came with a hard and soft carrying case, a cleaning rag, and mini tools for fixing loose screws or parts.  I loved that because I just thought the tools were really cute!   My husband says the only thing he doesn't love is sometimes after wearing the glasses all day they are a little difficult to clean all the oils off.  But with a little elbow grease they do come clean. I personally think they are very flattering and love how they look.  Of course I am a little biased ;) Firmoo has a large variety of prescription, non-
