Missing Tooth!

Megan has been working diligently for the last month to get her first tooth to fall out. Her effort finally paid off - the tooth is out! The tooth was floppy when Megan went to bed and Mac said he knew Megan wouldn't sleep until she got that thing out...he was right!

So tonight the tooth is in the pillow waiting for the Tooth Fairy to come. And I am once again hit by the reality of my little girl growing up. I am also hit by shock as it seems that the going rate for a first tooth is FIVE BUCKS! Are you kidding me?!? Just for minuscule piece of worthless dentin? Man, I wish I had saved my teeth, their value is going up faster than gold!

Aaah, yes, but...
Paying for the first tooth - five dollars
Seeing your child with a gapped tooth grin of pride - priceless

So if you'll excuse me, I think I hear the Tooth Fairy coming.

What Day Exactly??

Mac has decided that we will be having a 4th of July party at our house this year. (Come on over, you are invited!). Only we are having it on July 3rd because I want to take the kids to a big fireworks show this year. Liam overheard a snippet of the conversation and wanted the scoop.

Liam: Are we having a 4th of July party?
Mac (thinking he is funny): Yes, only it is on the 3rd of July.
Liam: There is no third of July!
Mac: Liam! What day is the third of July?
Liam pauses, gives thought and finally answers: July third.
Mac: Right, Liam! And what day is the 4th of July?
Liam: June 14th.
