First “Lost” Tooth

For about the past 2 weeks, The Queen has had a loose tooth.  It has been wiggly and wobbly, but very much still attached to her.  She has been somewhat anxious about having this tooth come out.  Not anxious in “I can’t wait”, but in the “I don’t want this to happen” way.  Of course it doesn’t help that help that her big brothers keep telling her all of the various ways one can have a tooth extracted.

This morning The Queen asked me to check her loose tooth, meaning she wanted me to wiggle it.  I have to tell you that loose teeth give me the heebie-jeebies, but as a Mama, you just gotta do these things.  I wiggle the tooth and it all but lays flat, but still just h-a-n-g-i-n-g on.  I comment to her how loose it is and that I think it is ready to come out.  She is not so sure.  Anyway, she allows me to check it one more time.  I get a hold of it and pull…it came out!  Thank goodness!  There was some shock on The Queen’s face.  We marvelled at the tooth.


The tooth has been prepared for the arrival of the Tooth Fairy tonight.  There is also a note asking the Tooth Fairy to leave the tooth for Mama.  The Queen doesn’t see the point in it though.  Maybe we will follow the Chinese tradition of burying the tooth (bottom tooth) so the new tooth will grow up straight.

Coming Up For Air….

I cannot believe how long it has been since I last posted a “real” post.  Having gone so long in not posting, I don’t really know where to start again.  Things started getting really busy in January with birthdays, schooling, our homeschool co-ops, tax season, Sunday school lessons, and pretty much snowballed from there.  It was a tough, long, and cold winter on many accounts. 

Geriatric dogs…I  can’t begin to tell you how difficult that has been.

I have hardly taken any photos over the past few months.  That occurred to me when I went to upload photos and realized I didn’t even talk the first photo yesterday…Easter Sunday. 

Do I see the light at the end of the tunnel?  Maybe the size of a pinprick.

So enough with my excuses/reasons for not posting.  Since we just celebrated the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus;  maybe I can start today renew.  So, I will leave you with what few photos I do have.  I will try to do a better job from now on.  I know I love following/reading others blogs.  I hope those of you that do follow my blog enjoy it as well.  I do hope to keep you as followers, so don’t abandon the ship just yet…we are still afloat.


Easter Bunny?  No.  Actually this was taken for Chinese New Year (Year of the Rabbit).


More CNY activities.  The Princess was born in the Year of the Rooster.


My little Empresses


Looks like everyone is hunkered down and trying to keep warm.


These are some of the cutest cowgirls you’’ ever see.  I loved these dresses so much when I bought them 3 years ago.  I wish they had made them in big girl sizes as I would would be sportin’ one.  This is about the second time the girls have put these dresses on.  I cannot get them to wear them for some reason.


Taking a break.


Soccer girls.


Two arms full!


Goalie girl.


Just plain silly!


A rare occurrence when The Queen shared her throne (purple chair) with The Princess.


Science Fair project.  No cats were harmed during the project (How Far Will A Magnet Jump?).  However, we did discover that the magnet track mat is also a Cat Magnet!  You didn’t think I wouldn’t have a Mascot photo in here somewhere!


Easter Egg hunt with a friend.

I guess that about sums it up for now.  Until next time.
