A little bit of this and a little bit of that


She has been wiggling this tooth for a long time. It was hangin' on for dear life! Her adult tooth started coming in, which helped push that little tooth out. The next morning, she told us that the tooth fairy forgot that she had lost a tooth. I gasped, "What? THE TOOTH FAIRY FORGOT??" She looked at me with no expression on her face whatsoever, and said, "Yeah, I think Daddy fell asleep early." When Emma sat down to eat breakfast, "the tooth fairy's substitute" made a mad dash upstairs to the girl's room, and stuffed a couple quarters under Emma's pillow. Then, I nonchalantly walked into the kitchen with the biggest "give-away poker face" there ever was, and asked her,in between breaths, "Are you sure you checked under your pillow?" She said, "Yup." I leaned in. "Positive?" my voice went up an octave. She caught my wink, grinned a huge toothless grin and ran upstairs...

The first thing out of her mouth was, "Can we go to the dollar store?"

I told her we would go. "And, can we go out for ice cream, too?" she asked. Unfortunately, I had to break the news to her that she did not have enough money.

So, she turned to the mirror and looked for any more possible "wigglers."

Smart kid.


What's a mom to do when her daughter with long, flowing hair falls asleep in her lap?

Remember the "crimper" curling iron? That would have been so much easier.

Hmmmmm. Should I?


I miss my gang. This week, our friends Dan and Tami have opened up their home and turned it into the funnest kid camp ever. Matt, Mary and Mikey are sleeping over their house for almost a week. It's great to have friends!

(oops! Where's Matt's smile? )

Annie, mind taking off that King Kong headband next time we shoot a picture?

I can't tell you how many times I have done that exact thing! LOL--the kids come down with sadness in their eyes because the tooth fairy did not show up. I, too, played the poker face game and always said, "She must have dropped it. . . did you look under the mattress?" Of course--the silly tooth fairy ALWAYS had a habit of "dropping" it. Not to worry--I ALWAYS found it! LOL--too funny, Beck. It brought me back a few years and made me laugh this morning!

Hey Becky,
I think Cody was sending this to Matt's email, but he's gone this week (as your post just reminded me)
Kiara and I set up the blog. It's rocktalk951.blogspot.com our email is rocktalk951@gmail.com.

My tooth fairy got caught one time, and then forgot the next night. (very depressing, i know) she apparently didn't realize i was still awake when she came in... i rolled over and was like, "Hi, there. what'cha doin'?"
see you Sunday!

Wow, Emm, your tremendous earning potential! =) Congrats on your quarters. Good thing the tooth fairy pulled it together at the end there. Sounds like she must have had a busy night. Annie's braids almost scared me. Thought maybe she had some albino rat snakes in her bed. Sweet picture of everybody altogether!

That is so funny! The poor tooth fairy has probably been caught in every home. (And if there's some kid out there that still believes....forgive this post.)

Hey, I took a look at your blog and it looks great! I'll be praying for you girls!
