A Month of Firsts

Bug has had a big April, one with a lot of firsts for her!

G and I are both baseball lovers, but we’ve been lax in passing that on to Bug.  We got an opportunity to remedy that parental failing when my work gave me tickets to opening day of the local AAA baseball team.  For those who haven’t been to a minor league game, it’s wicked fun to watch ball in the smaller venues AAA ball offers.  Here’s Bug watching and eating her dinner:

And Bug and me (can you tell it was cold that night?):

Bug also had her first major dental work, a curse we thought we’d dodged.  Oh well.  Like everything else, Bug made it through like a trooper.  That may be because Momma made the mistake of promising her she could get her ears pierced after the 4.5 hours of dental work was done.  Here she is modeling the new earrings.  She loves them!  I probably have some other First Grade moms hating me right now though– a few of Bug’s friends are asking for piercings now.  I guess I’m THAT mom!

The very same weekend of the dental work and ear piercings we took the training wheels off the bike.  Within 15 minutes she was riding.  Atta girl!  Momma is a little sad, though– earrings and no training wheels in one weekend?  My baby girl is getting too big.

Last, but certainly not least, we had another one of the big writing-art combo projects.  And keeping with the theme of firsts, we got through the writing project with no tears.  The art portion turned out pretty cool– Bug formulated a mixed-media collage project with paint, fabric, and flowers.

I’ll try to get back to posting something more topical and substantive soon, perhaps a review of Kathryn Joyce’s The Child Catchers– a wonderfully researched an informative book on an important topic.
