In search of...

The girls had appointments at the dentist this morning. On the way there, Kaylee asked if she could show the dentist her first loose tooth. So of course, I told her "yes". It's been hanging in there for a long time now, being pushed out by the "big girl tooth". She then shrieked "It's gone!" We went to the dentist as planned and then came home to search for her tooth. I know it was in that little mouth of hers last night. Anyway, we looked and looked but cannot find it. I'm not sure who's more at a loss - her or her mommy! I told her we would write a note to the tooth fairy to let her know that her tooth came out in the middle of the night. Hopefully the tooth fairy will still remember to visit and will leave her something special. :)

Chris Mess

Well, Christmas has come and gone and I hope all of you had a Merry one. Now, Chris-Mess time is here. Those of you with little children will relate. It's the time when all the taped in, twist tied, and even screwed in toys come out of the packaging one by one and all that's left in the living room is a bunch of ripped up cardboard! Seriously, does Mattel really think Barbie needs to be plastic strapped, twist tied AND taped to the back of the box - she's not going anywhere! Oh, and I just LOVE it when they sew, yes, I said sew, her hair to a plastic strip that is also taped to the back of the package! Grrrr. With all that safety "gear", I can't wait to take the trash out! Tonight, I've made my pile of papers, twist ties, plastic, cardboard pieces and boxes. It's all near the front door just waiting on tomorrow morning to come! I'd post pictures but I have taken the photos off of my laptop in fear of losing them as the laptop has seen it's days and is only working when it wants to. FYI, my new computer case is on it's way so Mike can build me my super computer. I'm sure when it comes in, it won't be near as "safety packed" as Barbie was! We'll see!
