It's been a big week around here.

A particular little girl, pictured below, has issues with loose teeth. As in, they freak her out. She won't let anyone touch them and so they hang there like this....

until she finally allows me to touch it and get it out. Ta-da!

I admit that I am sad about this milestone. I think kids look so much older once those big adult teeth start coming in. It seems like part of their childhood has ended. She can't wait to look older though. She keeps asking if the missing tooth makes her appear older.

The other milestone is that Jack can write his own name. I was happy to see his signature on his artwork. Not so much when I discovered it on the lamp!


  1. On the lamp! Oh, my! That's really funny -- when it's not your kid, or your lamp! ;) I felt exactly the same way your daughter does about loose teeth when I was her age.

  2. We're losing teeth around here, too! It's so exciting!
