Months ago we began to pray about this teeny tiny mouth and the major love that it needed.
We made calls and plans and appointments. We waited. Meanwhile, I buried myself in an insurance manual and paperwork. I loathe insurance paperwork.
We were getting down to the wire on our end of things and finally we made the appointment on faith that everything would just fall into place.
It pretty much did, give or take a couple of dollars a month.
So today my pirate boy found himself in a chair with his feet up and his mouth wide open.
He is always, always, always a trooper.
No matter where we go, or what type of appointment it is, or how uncomfortable he is- he never ever complains.
His mouth is really sore and we expect it will be for a while.
We are so thankful that were are at this point. It didn't seem feasible at all just a few months ago.
Riley has always been our out of the ordinary kid.
You never know what to expect from him next. He's artsy and wacky and super, super smart.
His Christmas wish list this year cracked us up.
This, my friends, was number one on his wish list.
He saw this moustache mug at Books-A-Million a few months ago. He all but kissed it in the store.
Begged for it.
Talked about it all the way home.
And the next day.
And the next.
And then, it made #1 on the Riley's Christmas Wish List 2012 Edition.
Oh, he didn't just want the mug. He's far more specific than that.
His request was this:
Moustache mug with hot chocolate and mini marshmallows.
Luckily, the Mister and I happened by the bookstore a few weeks ago and scooped it up, along with a few more moustache treats.
My boy will be in moustache heaven.
Did your littles request anything out of the ordinary this year?
God is good, all the time!
