uni-brow...

there is always a question on if you should ask a VERY shallow self serving question...should you be that mom...should you be that vain in public--out loud...should you say this...should you ask that...well...I did...I was that mom...Maddie had her dilation Friday...I have become very comfortable with the doctors, nurses, anesthesia, check in attendants/specialists, and cna's...they know Maddie; she knows them; I know them...we talk family, life, and shop...they call her by name without hesitation...fill her charts without question...it has become so routine...and "normal"...and then I did it...I asked...Chad mentioned that Maddie was developing a uni-brow...and Maddie is starting pre school Wednesday...so I told him...I was going to ask my favorite nurse to pluck while she was under general anesthesia...or if I could pluck...what I did not expect was that I would have to get clearance from the doctor and anesthesiologist...so I did it anyway...the nurse understood my annoyance of the uni-brow and the trepidation of plucking while she was all squirmy wormy...and she said YES! and laughed...I asked the doctor and he said yes and asked if I wanted to throw in a pedi...and anesthesiologist said he would paint her nails to match her toes...so all in all it was a win of a day...Maddie got her eye brows did...the staff got a laugh and I got out of the torture of plucking them myself...oh yes and Maddie's esophagus is staying where it should so we are officially off the every 3 week rotation and are going to a 2 month esophagram here in Casper....and yes I have officially become that mom! toddlers and tiara her we come!

  3. Haha...Emily has a unibrow and I have wanted to tackle it for a while now, but I know how upset she would get! I am so glad you got to pluck Maddie's while she was out cold!

  4. LOL...Love it! And that's great about her esophagus staying in place and the whole routine going down to every two months instead of every three weeks :)

  5. Ok this cracked me up! I'm pretty sure Maddie would thank you for a) doing while she was out and b) not sending her to preschool with a uni-brow! LOL

    So glad things are becoming routine and stabilizing!

  6. You are so brave and awesome. I wanted to ask if I could cut Luc's hair during his procedure but I chickened out! So good to hear about her esophagus!

  7. This cracks me up! There's no way I would tackle tweezers with my squirmy Claire either. I can't even trim her nail while she's awake! Glad the esophagus is better!

  8. I'm so glad her esophagus is doing well, and absolutely cracking up at her spa treatment while she was under!! I've heard that a unibrow is a very common accompaniment to the extra chromosome. I'm always keeping a close eye on Sammi's eyebrows, but so far we've been lucky. LOL
