I've also realized that as a mother you do many things for your children that you never even did for yourself! How can the little girl who went to the dentist to have every tooth pulled now be the expert tooth puller in her home? By the grace of God and because of the love for a child is the only way I can explain it!
Dear God, thank you for the patience this weekend and the strength to do the unthinkable! But please, no more loose teeth for awhile! Amen!

We had lots of delicious food and many fun swings on our favorite porch! We sure will miss this porch, David!
Morgan decided to have an apple Friday night and in all the excitement forgot how she usually gingerly eats an apple due to her loose top teeth. The apple trick really works! Momma had to perform the final tug which was a little traumatic but once again, we survived! Where is that Daddy when we need him?

We had a great Valentine's day! It began with a party at Merritt's school and ended with a Mardi Gras parade! Busy day!

Both girls' schools celebrated Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday! Thanks to Mrs. Bryan's preschool class for the hat/beard mask! We had fun remembering a grand president, the log cabin he was born in, his famous top hat and of course the money that his face graces!

We were late to school this morning but who cares when you have a tooth in a ziplock bag to show your class! Morgan says it doesn't even count as being late!
Last night I discovered the bottom one hanging by a thread and really tried to convince her to let me pull it! No luck! This morning I couldn't in good conscience send her to school without pulling it! Sure, she's smiling here but moments before there were many tears!
We will anxiously await the tooth fairy's coming! Wonder what she'll bring! I'm thinking the momma whose husband was out of town for this fiasco and had to be the one to pull the tooth deserves a little something under her pillow!

I'm sure the Tooth Fairy is shining her wings and reloading her special flying glitter dust but I doubt she'll make an appearance tonight! Friday morning as Scott and I were leaving town, I discovered the wool had definitely been pulled over my eyes! Morgan's two bottom teeth are far looser than the top! When I asked her why she hadn't shown me those teeth her response was, "You would have pulled them!" She's not yet figured out that I am more scared than she is!No tooth duty needed by the grandparents this weekend, though!
Ironically, last week in school Morgan studied Dental Health. Her friend, Athan's dad is an orthodontist and he provided the whole class with toothbrushes. One day she did the above watercolor of the tooth fairy. Loosing a tooth or four would have been an exciting end to their Health unit. No such luck! Scott is out of town tonight but when he gets back tomorrow, I'm sure the jar opener will come out! Watch out, Morgan! Go visit your principal before your daddy gets home! No jar opener and you get a special tooth necklace! Who could ask for anything more?
