I'm Baaaack

On a more limited basis.  I may only post once or twice a week, but that seems much more doable to me right now, less stressful to be witty at least five days a week.

The last month that I've been off has been busy, but the most exciting thing to happen to us is Annabelle lost her very first tooth! 

It's not a great picture but it was very early in the morning and the flash hurts her eyes.

It took a full month for it to go from wiggly to out and it was a constant topic of conversation.  Have you been wiggling your tooth?  Let me check.  It hurts to bite on it!  Etc Etc Etc...  I finally had to give her an ultimatum, wiggle that tooth out or the dentist will be pulling it.  The next morning I wake her up for school and she smiles her  brand new gap-toothed grin.  The tooth fell out in the middle of the night.  She said she felt it in her mouth so she just put it under her pillow.  I had to come up with a quick story as to why the tooth was still there and she seemed to believe it, whew!

Saturday morning she wakes up early, early, early.  6:30 am early and finds her gift from Ms. Tooth Fairy herself.

You can barely see where she lost the tooth because her new one is already starting to fill up the space.
Sparkly money and a note from the Tooth Fairy.  I found this super, cute idea on Pinterest, here.  There is now fine glitter all over the house which Mark absolutely loves (can you sense the sarcasm) but Annabelle is thrilled with her fairy money.  I'm not sure that she will want to spend it.


  1. Oh my goodness--Sparkly money! I'm not sure that W will appreciate such things but hopefully if we ever have a girl----I'm doing that for sure!

    My husband hates all things glittery and crafty too. He just can't appreciate the therapy it is for me!

    I'm so glad you are back. It makes me happy. Yay! And I agree--sometimes attempting to be witty for the entire week is overwhelming. I have to tell myself that some posts will just be boring and no one will really care but me. Or that I'm doing it for my own sort of family scrapbooking. Or that hey, if they don't like. then unfollow! :) But I for one am glad to see you back! Now go get to writing something witty for tomorrow. Kidding, of course. Have a great day!

    1. There has to be some kind of fun boy ideas for the tooth fairy out there because boys don't seem to understand how awesome glitter really is.

      I'm glad that you are glad that I'm back. :)

  2. Sparkly money is such a cute idea! Though I would hate to clean up the mess!

    1. That was try #2 with the spakly money. My first attempt was a failure. I just dumped all the extra glitter outside on the front porch so now it shimmers when you walk outside:)
