I had one of those "I totally forgot about those" type of moments the other day when Oliver showed me his loose tooth. Immediately after that, I had a "Woah, he's getting older" type moment. The past week we've been updated daily with the status of the tooth.
Yesterday, while at his cousin's, the tooth came out. He lost it in the grass and never even mentioned it to the girls over there. When I picked them up, he was slightly concerned when I asked where it was-but, no fear, Oliver dictated a note to me, and the tooth fairy came anyhow...
And of course, she took the opportunity to use a little of her oomph to hype up the tooth brushing-no candy eating line.
When he heard her admonitions this morning, he said a sincere "Ok, I'll do that."
I like that tooth fairy.
I got a chance to go garage saleing in Fargo yesterday, sans kids.
That, was the perfect Happy Mother's Day present.
And, if you are a mother-Happy Mother's Day to you!
