The Tooth Fairy Visits

Ethan has been waiting all summer for his tooth to fall out. In May we had our teeth cleaned and the dental hygienist told me it would not be long. Ethan was just convinced that it would happen before Kindergarten.

So the week before Kindergarten started, Ethan and his buddy Greyson were playing the Wii while eating a little snack of popcorn! And voila! Out came the tooth and down it went! Ethan swallowed it right along with the popcorn!

The tooth fairy came! Believe it or not, he hasn't spent his money yet. He is waiting to buy something special. A DS game! I don't have the heart to tell him that it is going to take a few more teeth to add up to that price!

Loosing the first tooth hit me hard. Kindergarten starting and first tooth about did me in! Way too much for me at one time, but it has been fun watching Ethan get excited about all his big milestones. Just pass me the tissues!

My Love/Hate Relationship

I have a Love/Hate relationship with about 100 plus men at my house......

I am not sure how many of these tiny super hero men we have at our house, but they are EVERYWHERE! Will refers to them as "His Mans!" So Mans come with us everywhere...to bath, to bed, to church, to Louisiana, to the doctor's office, to the dinner table, to school in our backpack (shh, don't tell the director!)... You name a place and they have visited it! We are constantly in search of a certain one right before bed time and none of the 99 others will do!

When the first two or three arrived to our house, I thought they were cute and just the right size for little hands! But after many hours of picking them up, searching for just the RIGHT one at 15 minutes past bedtime, and stepping on them in the dark (which would bring tears to a grown man!)......I have decided I am sending them all back to super hero kingdom..Where ever that is!!!!!

Every once in a while when I turn the corner in my house, I run into a life size one!

Have I mentioned lately how MUCH I LOVE being a Mommy of Boys! Little Boys Rock!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

So this past week we celebrated David's birthday! David turned 33 on Tuesday. I always feel bad that his birthday doesn't ever get a big celebration. Unfortunately David married a teacher and when August rolls around I am in SCHOOL MODE FULL FORCE! I am eating, sleeping, and dreaming school right now! Sorry David!

The boys and I made cupcakes and bought a few gifts! Which were a total surprise to David. You see if you know David, then you probably know that he buys his own birthday gifts and I just wrap them. This year I told him to give me the money and he was going to be surprised. Well, I got to do it almost 100%. David brought me to the store and showed me a few things he would be interested in. Just in case I needed some ideas for his gift. Gotta love him!

Our cupcakes were not Food Network Cupcake War worthy, but they were made with LOVE

and yummy!

Ethan captured this moment after present time. Ethan loves to take pictures of us with my camera. David gave me a thank you kiss after our little family birthday celebration. Ethan witnessed our kiss and asked his daddy to do it again so he could take a picture.

I did not see the picture until I was downloading all the pics from my camera to the computer. WOW! My husband still loves me! Even with my messy hair and make up worn off from a hard day at work! When I saw the pic, I thought it was a great moment caught on film and the fact that my 5 year old thought it was a moment that needed to be documented was totally cool! I also think it was pretty awesome that Ethan witnessed such a sweet moment between his mommy and daddy. David is such a great husband and a wonderful example for our boys!
Happy Birthday David! We Love You to the Moon and Back!
