Nailed It

I get a lot wrong in parenting. I mean---A LOT. But tonight... I think I got it right. Andrew lost tooth number 20 today. That's right, the very last one. And his tooth fairy hasn't been a big payer. So I thought it was appropriate to go out with a bang!

And who knows. According to my kids some of their friends get this for every tooth (which I highly doubt but-- whatever!)

One little minor hang up. He lost his tooth....and then LOST his tooth--like in the garbage--that he diligently rummaged through but couldn't find it!

His note to the tooth fairy ( a little disengenuous if you ask as me---and incredibly illegible)

The Tooth Fairy's Final Response.

Yeah... I think I deserve some brownie points for this one.

New Year New Resolution

I'm a little late with the New Year's resolutions. We've been a little preoccupied.....with the project from HELL! Sorry 'bout that....but not really. It's the truth and I don't like to lie.

BUT....y'all know how much I love New Year's resolutions, so I had to post mine so I wouldn't forget. 

This Year, I resolve that everyone in my house will..........wipe their own butts! Yes, that's correct. I would officially like to retire from butt wiping this year!

The girls have been potty trained for almost a year and a half, but I still do almost all the wiping--mostly due to their small size and inability to climb on the toilet without falling in. And due to the fact that I really dislike poopy fingers, and toilet seats, and sinks, and walls, and......well, you get the idea. I just want the poo to stay where it belongs. But this year, this glorious year of 2015, that will all change! 

So there it is--my resolution. Now in keeping with tradition I'll go find a pile of junkfood to eat in celebration of the poopy month of January.

Happy New Year!
