My Brave Girl Holly

Posted on: April 25, 2012

On Monday Holly had an appointment with the specialist and I went along for moral support, not to mention Evelyn support, should it be needed! Turns out Evelyn found the whole process quite boring and slept through it all. Had I not been there though, she would have fussed for sure!

I am happy to tell you that Holly is in great health and that she has grown a remarkable three inches since August! I’m thinking the height comes from her father’s side, not her Mommy’s!

Blood work was recommended, and so we head for the nurse to draw blood. We were real happy to see it was the same nurse Holly had when she had blood taken the first time, she’s a pro with kids. Holly had 4 vials taken and did not flinch, budge or even say Ow! That’s right, she’s 34 months young, had blood taken and didn’t even cry. She even watched the nurse stick the needle in! We tried to get her to look away but no…she had to see! This bravery is deserving of a special treat!

We head to Dollarama, the special treat place of all times, and Holly picks out the ‘hair-dressing’ kit! It comes with a blow dryer, curling iron, clips, a mirror and comb! She played with that thing all day Monday and then again on Tuesday! She tried curling Rasky’s (our cat) tail, she tried curling her ears and Rasky stood her grounds when it came to her whiskers! Nobody is gonna curl her whiskers! Poor Rasky had a clip in her fur all afternoon as she couldn’t reach it! Holly will not get the same co-operation from her cats as they are boys for one thing, and they’re younger! Rasky just couldn’t care less!

So Holly spent the night with us as what’s a trip to London if you can’t sleep at Meme’s? We had a fabulous day yesterday making cherry pecan loaf, we made soap which apparently doesn’t taste so good but looks a lot like cookies! She only had a little taste, I promise Mel!

We also made a birthday card for Heidi who celebrates a birthday tomorrow! We went for a walk and mailed the card, hopefully she’ll get it on time! Holly stuck all kinds of stickers on some construction paper, markers, the whole bit! I’m sure Heidi will love it, specially when she gets mail! That is such fun to get mail when you’re little!

Having grand-children is like having little deja-vues of your own children and it is so nice to have those memories! Holly made one comment to Denis and he said “OK Little Melanie” and she replied “My name is Holly!”. If only she knew how much that sounded like Melanie and the irony of that comment, she would crack up, just like we did!

Here’s to going crackers with the kiddies!
