My kids, my life, my need for a sanity check.

The Tooth Fairy Was Active At Our House....

Charlotte says: "I'm glad the Tooth Fairy Likes Kids Momma!"
Me too, sweetie.
So the bottom 2 teeth came out on their own, like they should. With much excitement and angst. She didn't want to loose her teeth... she didn't want to grow up... "Momma wiggle my teeth, NO, don't touch"... and finally with total shock and glee, they fell out. The tooth fairy showed up (at our friends Amy's house, thank goodness the Tooth fairy knows all things!) and all was well. Fast forward a month. She loves those skates. It just when one falls face first in our garage (you know, with concrete) on the step the battle between teeth and rock is a no brainer. A trip to the dentist and $100 later, the Tooth Fairy shows up again. She received a little more than normal for those last 2 teeth. I call it Guilt money. Like I should have known to stuff her mouth with a mouth guard before a round of skating but whatever. She is now the proud owner of a straw hole and proud to show it off to anyone that will look.

Life Has Been Busy...

We had a great Christmas. It was so much fun to have all 4 of us together again. I have such wonderful memories (and some not so wonderful but who thinks about those all the time, LOL) growing up with these people.
Mike throwing rocks at wasps nests and Russell and I trying to escape, we didn't. Mike abandoning me at the top of a "mountain" behind my grandparents farm. Mike and I setting my Grandfathers hay field on fire. Good times.
Beating Russell in running a race and I was wearing hills (that was the last time I raced him). Use trying out jumps on our bikes after watching Dukes of Hazard. Watching Russell running down the isle of Wal-mart showing me how fast his new shoes were.
Sharing a bed with Tammy at my Grandmothers. She would fall asleep holding my finger. Tammy and I trying out new "dance" steps after watching Dance Fever. Seeing the excitement of getting her first razor.
Makes me wonder what my kids will remember about their childhood growing up with each other.
