Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

The Tooth Fairy is Set to Return!!

Today was a big day at our house!! Ellie lost her first tooth!! Surprising, since she is only 4 1/2. A little younger than average, but not abnormal. My kids all seem to be "early losers"- both boys were just barely 5 when they lost their first (and Kenny is DONE losing teeth- all of his baby teeth are gone and he is barely 10!); but obviously, this is even earlier. In fact, Meghan had a baby tooth that formed wrong in her gums and had to be pulled as an infant. The dentist said she may start losing her teeth a little early. She may have one loose, but yet it was Ellie who lost one first!
(It is surprisingly hard to catch a picture of a 4 year-olds toothless gap! She had goofy expressions in all of them! But of course, still adorable!)
About 1 1/2 weeks ago, I took the girls into the dentist for their regular cleaning and the hygienist is the one who noticed her two bottom front teeth were loose. She has been wiggling them a lot since then, anxious to get to know the tooth fairy. In fact, the last couple of days when the one has been looser, she has even been asking Aaron to try to pull it. He kept trying, but it wasn't quite ready. Today, it did come out when he tried to pull it and she didn't even realize it until he told her to look at the mirror. She went and looked and saw a little blood- and at THAT point freaked out crying and upset! Ha! But then, all day she asked when it would be dark time so that the tooth fairy would come! All I gotta say is that tooth fairy better deliver!! We have had a lot of problems here with the tooth fairy- click here to hear more about why!
