So Annie Kate went to work with Jeff last week for "Take your darling child to work day". I sent her with the camera and she came home with 3 photos.
1. She took a photo of their breakfast and got to see what Dad eats every day for breakfast and lunch. Jeff - slimfast. Annie Kate got a large glass of chocolate milk (in the fabulous Tervis tumbler with lid)
2. the rest of his days food. Gross spotty bananas and a granola bar.
3. this self portrait taken at 6:30 am. Is she a blogger girl or what?
She neglected to take a photo of one of largest Army Hospitals in our country. She didn't take a photo of one of his patients the residents tell me I would need to afraid of if she was not in 70's. She is the sweetest lady ever and was there last year when Annie Kate came into the clinic. She bakes 2 cakes for every appointment for Jeff because they are his favorite. She bakes 2 because she know he will share them with his residents and wants him to have some for himself.
She didn't take a self portrait when she walked into the patients room who was covered in blood. (now that is the time to take a self portrait)
She didn't take a photo of her lucky day of getting more food than a rotten banana and a granola bar. She got to go with Jeff to give oral boards with to his residents and someone brought in Chinese food. (yea Dad gets lunch)
She had a fun day and came home so tired. I asked her what she learned about her dad seeing how far he drives each day, how hard he works and how little eats during the day. She didn't say anything other than "it was ok". WHAT? I had to jump down her throat to teach her that just merely talking about it in some detail goes a long way in showing gratitude to your parents. She laughed and then went into more blood detail.
I hope she will get to do that again next year as I feel our time here is so unique to other medical centers Jeff will work in in the future.
On goodwill news, I found the miracle a few weeks ago.
Remember my punch bowl dilemma. Had been looking for a cool hip one for my southern friend. Found a punch bowl with 12 mugs but it was just not quite her style. At the same time the lady I visit teach had a baptism coming up and I wanted to give it to her as a gift to remember the day. I ended up giving to my friend who didn't really need on but would make a great gift and memory for the baptism.
Since January I have been on the hunt for the perfect one for my southern friend and wa-la I found it. scalloped top and glass polka dots, with matching 8 mugs. All for $5.00 . I have it all wrapped up for her birthday , i think she will be really surprised!!
