Sniffle Sniffle

Oh my, I just cannot believe that we are getting to this point in one of our children's lives! The S house was in an uproar today after Isaac walked up to daddy and announced that his tooth was "really wobbly." He is getting so big! I just cannot believe that he is big enough to be loosing his baby teeth. Time moves so quickly. He has been utterly darling all evening, spending most of his time looking in the mirror and then running in to show us the latest position of the tooth about once every 3 or 4 minutes.

Isaac is actually handling the whole thing very well, surprising considering his typical anxiety. Jesse did an excellent job of talking up the fun aspects of loosing a tooth. Isaac now believes that the tooth fairy is a cousin of Santa Clause, hence the need to fall asleep before she will visit. Quite ingenious if you ask me! I think that within in the next 24 hours this tooth will be history!

Here is a question and I am sorry if this seems gross, but I really want to know. I would like to save his first baby tooth in his baby book. Will that work? I mean, can I keep a tooth without it getting really gross or something? You would think that as a science teacher I would have an answer to this question, but alas I am clueless.

Another question, Isaac and Nathan are both pretty oblivious to the idea of money. We have tried several times to introduce the idea of an allowance and they are thoroughly uninterested. I think that if we wakes up in the morning and finds that the tooth fairy has left him cash, which is what I always found and loved, he will be pretty disappointed. I don't want to leave candy or any kind of food item, any ideas?

In other news, my fellow patrons of Giovanni's Day Spa will be distressed to know that our usual aesthetician, Kathy, has left and apparently without a forwarding address. In her place is a woman who I swear who be better employed extracting information from terrorists, not that I condone that sort of thing, than extracting pores in a spa. I would choose the dentist over this woman any day. I actually had to ask her to stop several times, she was causing me such unbelievable pain. NOT what I was looking for in a relaxing afternoon at the spa, but oh well. I made it up to myself by marching up the street and purchasing two cute pairs of shoes. Trust me, I earned them after that hour.

And yet another question: To cut or not to cut Anna's hair? Her bangs are forever in her eyes and I must admit that this drives me crazy. It does not seem to bother her, but I can only think about how much it would bother me. Her Suzie from Whosville pony tail on top of the head does have a degree of cuteness, but I don't really like the fact that I have to fix it 13 times a day. The problem is that cutting her hair seems like a final and permanent alteration of her babyhood. What to do? What to do?

No new pics or videos today. Jesse was busy installing a gate at the top of the stairs as well as lowering the mattress in Anna's crib in the hopes of avoiding another swan dive. Between that, the spa and the usual madness, no time for pics! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

when the girls loose their first tooth they got money plus a gift that they really wanted, Jordans was a music set and Sarahs was a strawberry shortcake drawing set.
I still have the teeth and they are fine just wash them.

I agree with Jn do not cut her hair, did it with Ellisha and she had a heck of a time growing her bangs out. Now she parts it in the middle and it just stays. As for the teeth, I have Ellishas teeth all of them and the 1st one she lost 5 years ago when she was 5. I am so sorry to hear about your trouble with the facial, never had one, now not sure I eer want
