Lately Faith has been into dinosaurs. She loves to watch them on TV and play with tiny plastic dino figurines, but most of all she likes to read about them in books.
When she was a resident of TCH she received the book, How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? Which, of course she loves. So when her LTR surgery was approaching we decided to peruse the internet for more books from the same series so she had something to look forward to post surgery.
The titles we found couldn't have been more perfect:
How do Dinosaurs Go To School? (click, click)
How do Dinosaurs Play With Their Friends?
(Faith's favorite word is "friends." Whenever she sees a child she signs "friends.")(click, click)
How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Dogs? (click, click)
How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Cats? (very enthusiastic click- Faith is also very into cats at the moment).
Before I knew it my online shopping cart had reached Free Shipping mode. (Always a sign you have purchased too much- it's how they get ya!)
Nevertheless we gave in as wanted nothing but the best for Faith as she recovered. Just when I was about the check out I glanced at a blurb for the up and coming How Do Dinosaurs Book:
How Do Dinosaurs Laugh Out Loud?
OMG! Heaven couldn't have come up with a better title.
(CLICK, CLICK) This was going to be perfect.
To my disappointment this set of double clicks did not result in the book being deposited into my shopping cart.
"Book Not Yet Available- Pre-Order Today for September 1st Publication"
Of course I took this as a sign. I even wrote another post about it, that of course did make my blogger publication when her surgery was canceled. I promised myself I would not purchase it until we learned how Faith could laugh out loud and lamented about how unfair it was that the world would now how dinosaurs laugh before my daughter does (melodramatic, I know).
I was wrong.
As it turns out we will find out how Dinosaurs and Faith laugh out loud.
Monday, August 23rd.
After receiving the information that we would have to wait another year we received another call that there is a new opening- and after this date there would be no "third chances."
The timing couldn't be worse. August 23rd is the first day of school for Brian (the for third me).
But God's timing is perfect and we have full FAITH that HE ordained this special date for Faith. While we will never fully understand the plan for the flip flop we know there is a PURPOSE, because HIS timing is so perfect He knew it was time for Faith to laugh with the dinosaurs.
