Tidying up

a few random thoughts...

  • Katie lost her fifth tooth tonight! She pulled it herself, brave girl. Then she told me that the tooth fairy turns the tooth into sweet dream dust and will sprinkle it on her tonight as she sleeps. She offered to share some with Anna as well, to help get rid of Anna's recurring dinosaur dream.

  • Anna asked if her skin looked beautiful last night. As I looked more closely, it certainly looked shiny, and smelled sweet. Then I saw the vanilla lipsmackers chapstick on the floor behind her. She had smeared it over every inch of her face to make it look "golden." I think she has a future with Rodan + Fields...

  • Katie asked as we drove to the MA football game, "Is this the one we're going to win?" I wasn't sure what she meant, but she explained that at the pep rally, Coach Sylvest said, "There's a football game tonight and MA is going to WIN!" Katie wanted to make sure we were headed to the right place.

  • Another installment of "How to Tell My Girls Are Southern": They wanted to make a birthday card for our sweet neighbor Lainey. I thought perhaps they would grab markers, crayons, construction paper, etc. But no, they went to GrandMom's old secretary, got out their calling cards, then signed, sealed up in envelopes and delivered them next door.

Mea Culpa

I'd like to offer a formal apology to all those teachers who ever gave me a homework assignment. I assure you - I am getting what I deserve.
