I Hope The Tooth Fairy Is Loaded

Spencer has lost his third tooth, as you can see from the gigantic gaping hole in his mouth. I know it looks like he lost two teeth but I promise it was only one. He used to have the world's largest space between his two front teeth so with the loss of one, you can safely park a truck there or maybe hide your Christmas presents. Either way, he's thrilled. I just hope the tooth fairy will pay up and remove said tooth, since the last time he lost one, we were in Boise and well...let's just say the tooth fairy down there does things differently. (Don't worry, Grandma Boise, he's almost completely stopped having nigthmares about the experience.)

In other Spencer news, on Friday I surprised him at school to have lunch with him. I was a little worried that he might be embarrassed since he asked me to stop putting notes in his lunchbox. ("Mom, I already know that you love me, you think I'm great and smart and you think I'm handsome. Would you stop with the notes already? My friends laugh at you.") To my utter delight, he was thrilled and we had a great lunch talking about all the different things he had done that day (in record time since they are only given about 3 minutes and 12 seconds to eat their food.) When he was bored with me, he would switch to Spanish and talk to the other kids in his class (freakishly unnerving by the way.) Once he had dumped his tray, he came back to go over the rules with me. "Ok Mom, when you want to be dismissed, you need to raise your hand for the duty. She'll come over and look at your tray to make sure you've eaten enough. If you have, she'll tell you to go dump and then you can go out to recess but first, MAKE SURE you come back to your table and wipe it with the cloth. Okay? Do you think you understand? If you have any questions, just ask the duty." And off he goes.

Spence for President, 2052.

I'm so glad he's finally comfortable "talking" to the duties in lunch room.

You have a gift for storytelling. Have you ever thought about publishing a book, or maybe just a compilation of your best blog entries? And, I keep thinking about the time you brought me brownies. Thanks for that. You're great.

Sarah- you are so sweet! I would love to publish a book but other than "Publishing for Dummies" I have no idea how to make that happen! Thanks for your kind words, and let me know when you need more brownies!
