School starts next week. NEXT WEEK! Today we went to school to find out who his teacher will be and who he might know in his class. He is looking forward to meeting her tomorrow night at open house. Things are really changing around here. As if that thought hasn't been on my mind all day long...(I'm slightly obsessing about watching my first born walk away from me to go to school on his own. Not preschool. Kindergarten. A whole new step towards growing up. Yes, I'll probably be the one balling like a baby.) Myles decides to physically show me how big he actually is.
He didn't lose a tooth today...he lost TWO. I can't believe how brave he was about it. My kid who will scream at the sight of blood...after confirming it is not just jelly...was totally cool with it. He was yanking and pulling. He so
wanted a two-for-one deal with the tooth fairy. All his efforts paid off. Things have been pretty exciting around here ever since. Quickly whipping up a tooth fairy pillow...pondering what in the world she might bring...will she write a note? Will she be able to reach his teeth up in his loft bed? (Of course - she has wings, you know). Wow, is all I can say. I have a kindergartner that will start school next week with a huge hole where his two front teeth used to be. His school pictures will be awesome.
Here's to growing up. It just goes so fast.
I'm quite excited about Myles! He's definitely growing up!ReplyDelete
You can say that again! :)Delete
He sounded so grown up today!!! I really miss them! Can't wait till Tues!,,,,,ReplyDelete
They miss you too!Delete
It is bittersweet watching them walk away. Knowing how much fun they will have and the friends they will make, helps the sadness you will feel. Just wait for the first grade. That one is bothering me more than kindergarten. I believe it is because it is the first of the number grades 'the beginning of the end'. If that makes sense.ReplyDelete
I can see how first grade will be tough too!!! I was such a nerd tonight - tearing up at open house listening to his teacher talk about what will happen throughout the year!Delete
I wanna see pictures of the toothless boy!!ReplyDelete
Did I tell you that when we were up north, Myles named Quinn's lion Myles. I thought that was so cute!
That is so cute about the lion! I had no idea! I'll have to get a pic where you can actually see the missing teeth up here sometime soon!Delete
