These pictures have been sitting here on a blank blog page for two weeks. Patiently waiting for some words to accompany them. But blog writing kept losing out to other things like cleaning up and grocery shopping and exercise class. But honestly blog writing most often loses out to sleep. Some nights I lay down to tuck in the girls, read stories and snuggle, and my body begs my mind to ignore the to-do list that its reciting and give in to the comforts of dreamland. And often the mind gives in to the body's pleas.
So some of this is old news, but old news is better than no news at all.
Big sister has a gap in her smile these days. Weeks of flipping the tooth back and forth with her tongue and it finally fell out at school. The tooth made it all the way home only to be lost somewhere in our immaculate, spic and span house before bedtime. She was questioning the Toothfairy's existence, trying to figure out how it's possible for a fairy to have money and where did she get if from. She decided to write a note to the Toothfairy, just in case, explaining that she couldn't find her tooth to put in a cup of water but could she still bring her some money anyway.
Well the Toothfairy must have been very busy (or sleepy) because there was some fancy trickery going on in the morning to explain why there was no money under big sister's pillow and how she better go look again because it must have *cough *cough slipped behind the bed. Some nights, the mom's mind should put up a bigger fight against the body begging it to go to sleep! Especially when a child's belief in the Toothfairy is depending on it!
Hopefully it won't be much longer and we'll see these scooters ripping around outside. Mother Nature teased us with a couple of warm, spring-like days and now we've gone and got our hopes up. We just can't help ourselves. Every year we wish spring would come just a little bit early. And every year we just get what we get. High hopes and more winter. Oh well, scootering around the shop is still pretty fun!
Yep. That is what you think it is. We attempted some paper mâché. Was it messy? Yep! Will we do it again? Hmm...let me get back to you on that one.
We managed to finish the project we needed for school and the girls had lots of goopy fun creating a little something of their own. Of course it was all fun and games until it was time to clean up and then somehow I was on my own. Oh well, that was two weeks ago. Its all cleaned up now!
