Mailbox Monday, Gage, and Football

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.  

Only one book arrived on our mailbox this week and it was addressed to Gage and he thought that was very cool.  It came from Kathy (BermudaOnion) and it’s a sequel to the book she sent him last year that he loved (post here).  As soon as we opened it and saw that it was Lola he had to find the first Lola book immediately.  And then we sat down to read them both.    Gage is great at the doctor, at least until last week when he had to have his blood drawn and the woman just stabbed him and he screamed at the top of his lungs for about 10 minutes and then periodic outbursts of crying for an hour.  Not good.  So this book, which talks about Lola being nervous about needles and how they hurt, came at a great time.  Thank you, Kathy!

Kathy is a Virginia Tech mom and I’m an Ohio State grad and we both love our college football.  On Saturday night her Hokies came to Ohio Stadium and whooped us.  Luckily, Jason and I were attending an annual Murder by the Falls fundraiser with some friends  and I only got home in time to witness our last failed attempt to score that resulted in an interception and touchdown for the other guys.  Congratulations to Kathy and her Hokies! It’s going to be a long season for Buckeye fans.

    I’m so glad the book came at the right time for Gage and I love the photos of him looking at it. I don’t think it’s possible for him to be any cuter.

    Saturday night was great for us, but I feel your pain – we’ve been there before.

    That Kathy, she has a heart of gold. That was a perfectly timed gift! My daughter got her blood drawn for the first time maybe when she was around 11 or 12, and it was awful. Very traumatic, as all things tend to be with the princess. You just wish you could do it for them. And football? Uh, did you see Purdue play this weekend? Shameful.

      Gage has had blood drawn before and he’s never had a problem. The woman seemed nervous about doing one so young and didn’t take enough time to do it right (IMO). As for football, the Big 10 is going to have a rough year.

    How exciting! I love his enthusiasm for those books. I’m so sorry for him about the blood test though–and you. How awful. Mouse isn’t a fan of blood tests either. Me either, if I’m honest.
