Dreaming of the Caribbean... Settling for Olathe, Kansas. Yay me.
bethklustter : At least there's no grown ups allowed.
bethklustter : Phew!
tasteasyougo : This place looks so fun!
jessicagfisher : Is that new? Like 6-years new? I don't remember that.
thekitchenarium : Did you sneak in a cocktail that would help it feel more Caribbean? πŸ˜‰
dineanddish : @thekitchenarium that would have made it much better
dineanddish : @jessicagfisher like within their last year at the most. It's really a neat place!
jessicagfisher : Looks very cool! We lived right south of Blackbob pool/park. That pool was a lifesaver with littles.

Leah is being a trooper this morning at the audiologist. Unfortunately I think our suspisions of hearing deficiencies is true. It's hard to watch her get so many sounds wrong :(
gidgetgrlreading : sorry to hear that. My 2 nephews had a lot of ear infections and a few ruptures. They both have hearing loss one around 15% and one at 30%. At least your getting her tested before kindergarten. Hugs! @dineanddish
harleyrose_200 : Hang in there mama...my daughter is 14 now and has only 80% of hearing in one ear and 90%in the other due to ear infections...we had tubes put in when she was a year old...she is in the band and is an out standing student...she not aftaid to tell you how it is...she has never let it keep her from doing anything she has mind to...and i have taught her just because she may not hear as well as others she is no different and can achieve the same goals and more...she is my blessing and the typical teenager..lol
margaret1254 : I know it's not fun to see her not hear at 100%, but she's young enough that you can fix anything that might slow her in school. You're doing the right thing!
robertm375 : I'm almost 100% deaf in one ear and have wax build up that I have to get it cleaned once a month. Hope she does well on her hearing test. Good Luck!
vanessa_faye28 : :( πŸ’œ
jennhaakenson : My daughter at 5yrs had no hearing on one side and only partial on the other. Two small procedures and is doing great at almost 10yrs! Good luck!
merekc : Jacob has worn Ha since 4 months old and Brett got them at five years. I'm happy to talk if you need anything.
iamtickledred : ((Hugs)) love. My mom is hard of hearing, along with one of her sisters. I know you're worried & scared, if you need a shoulder...

jennyjlong : Maybe I should take the kids there tmo since I am doing the smart thing and donating rather than selling...
dineanddish : @jennyjlong it was great. Leah really liked it and I had to force her to leave!
dineanddish : @ktk9900 it was... We were there for a few hours and it was perfect for my 5 year old. She had a lot of fun!

How will you share your beauty today? So many times we feel like if we share with others we are giving them a "one up" and maybe they'll become better than us. The truth is, the more we share, the more we all flourish. I'm sharing more thoughts on this over on my blog! I'd love for you to come chime in!

There are days when I am humbled beyond words by kindness... Because I am not nearly as thoughtful as I could be. I received this beautiful "just because" chocolate filled care package today all the way from @texanerin in Berlin as a simple thank you for being me. How sweet is that? Thank you, Erin! I'm blessed to know you!
deepsouthdish : I want more people like that in the world.
dineanddish : @deepsouthdish I wish I was more like that. I think about doing things like this all the time but fail to follow through most of the time!
pen_and_paint : Yum!
texanerin : I'm so happy you got it! But you have things all wrong. I sent this just because of all the kind things I see you doing for others. I felt inspired to do the same. :)
seededtable : That @texanerin is the sweetest!!
innatsshoes : LOVE Milka chocolate! Makes me so nostalgic for Prague! 😍
hungryhousewife : Sweet.
tsullivanphoto : Isn't @texanerin the best?! 😊
