I came home from work to an excited boy, shaking his ziploc bag of tooth fairy fodder. He had lost it shortly after arriving at his after school program.
There is another loose one down there on the bottom so I think it is just a matter of time before another one falls out.

|My beautiful girl|

I had put the kids to bed and was settling in to bed myself when hear comes Katharine just creeping, creeping into my bedroom. She doesn't look at me but just keeps right on creeping by me into the master bathroom. In the bathroom she quietly helps herself to a little drink of water. The she comes creeping back out again, by my bed and almost out the door. But, before she leaves she slowly turns backs to me and waves her hands in front of her face and says, "this never happened" -- then, without another word, she turned and continued her creeping back to her own bedroom. I'm telling ya' this kids never cease to entertain me.

Paul: What's going on over there?
Me: I don't know, I can't see... the police must have pulled somebody.
Katharine: Oh, the police. I thought it was an alien abduction.
File this one under kids says the darnedest things!

I've started a study at my Church called 1,000 gifts by Ann Voskamp and, in a nutshell, it's about the power of positive thinking. That is where I came across the word Eucharisteo -- Greek for thanksgiving. The word struck me and I found the sound of it beautiful. I say it to myself several times a day...Eucharisteo, Eucharisteo. I've also taken Voskamp's Joy Dare to keep a journal of 1,000 gifts. I"m up to 25 or so so we'll see how that goes.
This blog would list among one of my 1,000 gifts. I often come back and look at old posts and relive old memories. So, to that end, I'm pledging to pick it back up again and try to share some of my 1,000 gifts as they're happening. To give thanks -- Eucharisteo.

Yesterday morning during the hectic school/work prep routine, Matt appeared in our bathroom. "One of my bottom teeth is sticking out funny, Mom." My immediate reaction is that it's from all the thumb sucking, but then it dawns on me that this can't be that far off from when KK started losing hers. I feel around in there and sure enough there's a wiggly little tooth down there. When I confirm it, his faces gleams with pride. Not thirty minutes later I'm dropping him off at school he juts out his lower jaw and asks me if the tooth is still in there. It was.
Today we discovered that not only is there one loose tooth, there are two! The two bottom center are on their way out.
