I LOST my tooth!!!


On Friday, August 2oth...

the tooth saga started...

we were with the Martin girls at C.E. Ch*eese...one last playdate before school..

.L had taken a bite of ice cream...and then,

"AAAHH...I JUST BROKE MY TOOTH!!!"

(screaming...crying...blood...screaming...crying...drama...blood...get the picture?)

** after leaving..a 9*1*1* call to Mangie was made ...to see if she could whip up a tooth fairy pillow of some sort...and I got online and ordered a few goodies myself....book, etc.



The tooth was getting looser and looser by the day....not only did she have the anxiety of starting K..but now the anxiety of eating and hitting the tooth was thrown in the mix....but hey, she thought she was hot stuff having a loose tooth to show her new friends.....and even hotter stuff when she saw the teacher had a chart to record lost teeth...and it was blank....game on!!


Fast Forward to Wed. 8/25-

The tooth was loose and wiggly...but not doing the horizontal dangle hanging on one root yet...but loose nonetheless...I had a feeling it would be any day...she was ready for it to be out!! The tooth was getting in the way of snack time at school, and she loves snack time.:)

We came home from school, she was starving and tired...so I broke the "you can't eat in the living room and watch tv" rule...she wanted some mac and ch*eese......apparently when you inhale your food, and don't chew it....you can swallow your tooth;(

I was in the kitchen getting dinner ready, and I heard.

"WhAT?!"

"MOMMY>>I LOST MY TOOTH!!!" (as she came running into the kitchen)

"WHAT? SHOW ME? WHERE IS YOUR TOOTH?"

(all caps because we were both so excited)

L- "OH, i don't know!"

me- "did it fall out?" "where is it? did you drop it?.let's go look!"

L-"oh, i think i feel it in my throat!"

(screaming...crying...drama...no blood....screaming...crying...panic)

L-" NOW I WON"T GET ANY MONEY!!"


**so after calming her down...and reassuring her that this has happened to a lot of other kiddos...and the tooth fairy would accept a note......and she would still get some money......she wrote her note.......on her own....needed help spelling "lost"..and "ate"


then got worked up again...so, we put a call in to her teacher(yes..really) she reassured her...told her to write a note....and this time she was fine...since it came from her teacher


she was so excited...we read her book...tucked the note into the tooth pocket....found the perfect spot...and then...PANIC!

"I DON"T WANT HER TO COME IN MY ROOM!!" "CAN I SLEEP WITH YOU? WILL SHE TOUCH ME? CAN I KEEP MY EYES OPEN? HOW BIG IS SHE? YOU KNOW I DON"T LIKE SLEEPING IN MY BED WHEN THE EAS*TER BUNNY OR SAN*TA COME EITHER!!"


**After letting her know the tooth fairy was little...came in and did her job like a flash.....and was more afraid of big kids sleeping in their beds since she was so tiny...she was fine...and OUT!












( sometime before today..i wanted a few more pics of all her baby teeth)






(I know it's a long post..want to remember)

2nd & 3rd day

3rd day

2nd day

**We were going through all of her new clothes to pick out the 2nd day outfit...and she said,
"Why didn't you let me choose my own school clothes like Mangie did?"...."I did!"....and to think we are already having this conversation...yikes!! And yes, she was an active part in choosing the clothes we bought!



First Day of Kin*der*gar*ten


First Day of Ki*nder*garten
8/23/2010






so excited...bedhead and all...

the night before


Monday, August 23rd---


The day I had been dreading for 5 years finally arrived...Kind*er*garten.....We had a great time school shopping...only a few meltdowns....then I was better.:) Oh, and yes, the little one had a few meltdowns as well.:) L was SO excited about starting school...me, not so much....my little constant companion of 5 1/2 yrs wouldn't be with me 24/7.....she survived the first day without tears...me on the other hand....well, not so much! She was up on her own at 6:45 ready to get dressed and head out the door....she woke up..got dressed...ate breakfast...had a photo op...then we were on our way!! She did let me know that she was only going to go for 2 weeks, so I would need to tell her teacher...crazy girl!!


I just knew she would be waiting for me with open arms when I arrived at 3:00....instead I heard, "Uh, why are you here? I wanted to stay for snack!?"


so...after an hour....we finally left....she was so excited to tell us all about her day...I was so excited that she was so excited...I"m looking forward to hearing about each day this year.:) and she is looking forward to going!!

****DISCLAIMER- I DID NOT PICK OUT THE OUTFIT...I DID NOT EVEN BUY THE OUTFIT!***

wow..talk about DUST!!!

after a 6 month hiatus...I am going to try to get back in the blog-swing....if there is anyone out there...anymore...have I lost all of my faithful followers?? After a fun summer..we are kicking it in to gear with the whole kindergarten routine....let me know if you're still out there?.:)

L wanted a "Princ*ess and the F*rog" theme....so we had it everywhere

... and they were yummy!!

the special chair to open gifts...oh, and yes..an outfit change for gifts..:)

giggly girls

I LOVE their facial expressions

5 or 13...it was still fun!!!

You probably notice the set-up on the table...I notice the balloons on the table cloth...that are shining through my themed table cloth..hhmm...maybe a little OCD?

yummy

she had just a few gifts to open...poor baby!! NOT!!!





"Daddy,can I go ahead and tell you what kind of car I'd like when I turn 16?"

PRICELESS...well, TIMELESS....she was sssoooo excited about her new watch!!

we did it!!

**Happy Birthday to my sweet girl! It's hard to believe that you are already 5! Where have these years gone? I want you to stop growing up so fast....you'll be in college before we know it! I have loved watching you turn into a little girl...but I miss that sweet toddler and baby that were just here....you are my world, and I wouldn't have it any other way....I loved watching you have such a fun time with all of your friends at your birthday party. Mommy's birthday party OCD was all worth it.:)
***P.S...a big shout out to my Party-Posse for all of your help...before, during and after the party
****P.S.S....I have SO many more wonderful pictures...if you are a local reader that attended the big shindig...I bet I have a few of your child that I would be happy to share.:)
*****P.S.S.S....please remind to KEEP IT SIMPLE next year!
