The Little Things

Today wasn't a particular good day.

Messy things at work and messy things at home.

It was one of those days you pray to the gods to be over.

I got home from work and it was finally almost over.

I just had to get through helping Lael with her homework without strangling her and ignore my husband to refrain from to dispose of his remains.

It had been a while since Lael had lost a tooth and we had pretty much gotten past the tooth excitement.

What I had forgot was that this one pesky tooth has been lose for MONTHS.  It was kind of hiding behind her newly grown in "big girl" teeth and I had forgot all about it.

Until she came home yesterday saying that it was bleeding.  I wiggled it a little and could tell it only had a few days left at the most.

Well Lael showed it to me when she finished her homework and I just reached in and gave a gentle tug and out it popped.

She looks at me and said "Well, that was easy."


For many things.

It was that simple.  It turned my night around.  That easily.

Isn't she precious.  Big buck teeth and all.  Well except for that scarf, let's just pretend you didn't see that. 


  1. Me and E went at it tonight on 8+8...she told me it was 13 and no amount of proof would convince her otherwise.

    I almost pulled my own teeth out.

  2. hehe I love looking at toothless kids they are too cute!

  3. That's a great pic!

    We're not quite there yet with the baby teeth falling out... I have a hard time picturing J without his front teeth now. :)

  4. Aren't those moments great? I always get so grumpy during the weeks from the holidays, what with all the rushing around and obligations, etc. But once the big day is finally here, I wondered what I got all up in arms about. Gotta remember to breathe!

  5. Awwww... sometimes it is just that easy. She looks so cute. I love toothless kids. Adults, not-so-much. Ha.

  6. They look so charming at the gap-tooth age, don't they?

  7. Loose teeth are my least favorite thing. I cannot stand them. I am also a lousy tooth fairy. My poor children will probably have many psychologist sessions about teeth.


Those laughing with me...or at me.
