Passing the Milestones

We passed two milestones in the last 24 hours here in po-dunk!

One being the tooth finally came out!

The tooth she was so afraid of,
the tooth that yesterday was literally blowing out when she said her S's and T's,
(I had her doing silly sam had a snake and she sells sea shells and lmbo!)

the tooth that I told her would have to come out before she went to bed so she wouldn't swallow it.

When it blows in the wind like that, it's really ready.

She didn't believe it wouldn't hurt, so scared of the unknown and unable to actually get herself to pull on it to get it out. I gave her until 9pm and told her it would be my turn - I gave her a couple "last chances" to pull it and after holding down her hands from blocking me with her screaming all the way, I popped it out of there real fast. After the initial crying over the minimal bleeding she claimed was a lot - did I mention she is the drama queen? - she was quite proud of herself! The toothfairy came and she was able to buy a Smencil at the school bookstore today. She was feeling so good, she offered to share her money so her brother could get a Smencil too. See - kids CAN be nice to each other..someone write this on the calendar!

Good thing he got a new Smencil to do his homework because his glasses also came in today - another homework helper and our second milestone. He looks so grown-up all in a sudden. I had a tear in my eye at the eyedoctor's office when he first put them on and had a vision of him at about 11 as we were walking back to the car. He walked slowly back to the car saying the ground looked like stairs and his homework did go a little faster. He has made numerous comments about how much better things look.

He is mister serious now.
We will see how long they last!!

She must feel so much better, now that the stubborn tooth is out of the way!

I tagged in you a Pay It Forward post.

Kids grow up so fast, don't they? (snif, snif)

teehee--I followed Amy over and I also have a drama queen and a son with glasses, though mine are considerably older (15 & 11)--I love the tooth story! (and needing to document when they are nice to each other)

Ahhh, my daughter did that too...everytime I would talk to her I couldn't help staring at her toogth which drove her crazy.
And what a handsome fella!
Milestones...they should just throw them at me, because with each one I feel the heart tugging...realizing that it means my kids are growing up. Stop that!
