We put the tooth under the pillow and the tooth fairy came and left a dollar. When I get up this morning, Lincoln is laying on the chair looking thoughtfully at said dollar. This is the conversation that ensued...
"Mom, is the tooth fairy really real?"
I pretend to not hear. "Um what honey?"
"Are you and Dad the tooth fairy?
"Did you leave this dollar under my pillow?"
Since Micah had left the money I could answer without lying to him, "No. I didn't. The tooth fairy must have!"
He does not look too convinced and he is back to looking and pondering the dollar, and Micah enters.
"Hey Lincoln! Look at that! Did the tooth fairy leave you that dollar?"
"Dad, are you the tooth fairy?"
"Dad. Is the tooth fairy even real?"
"Um, well -"
"Dad, TELL THE TRUTH!" and this is said so emphatically, with a pointed finger, that Micah confesses...
"No son. The tooth fairy is not real. I put the dollar under your pillow. How did you know?"
"Well, you said she has wings and people do NOT have wings, so I knew it wasn't really real."
Nice. No Santa, No tooth fairy, and I am guessing the Easter Bunny is on thin ice...
We went over, repeatedly, that he is NOT allowed to tell anyone, and gave him several punishments options should he choose to spill the beans anyway.
Then he asks if he can trade back the dollar and have his tooth back. Seriously, whose kid is this???
Other than that, we have had a quiet few days here. The fat dog is continuing on his journey to be the best baby ever! He sleeps good, eats good, and is generally just a happy baby all the time.
Emerson has been having some new imaginary adventures... these involve his gramma. He says things like...
"Ma, my gramma says I can have Spwite (sprite)." (yeah, at 8am only a gramma would give you sprite!)
"Mommy, my gramma says I can do..." Fill this in with any activity that Mom and Dad have banned or said no to.
Onto some scrappy things...
Here is one of my pictures for the 365... A pretty little apple pie that I made this week. It was yummy and my crust came out the prettiest I've ever made. I still have to get these printed and put into some kind of album. I am doing them all at the end of the month, and printing them at Costco, so I have a few more days to figure out exactly how I want to album them up.
My Book of Me for week 3. The idea was to frame something. No, I didn't get this in a real frame for my wall yet, but once we paint in here I will. I love this quote and it so defines why I scrapbook! Remember I am using up my stash and scraps for these so its not like they are brilliant or anything. :)
And, please pray for my girl Kim. Her little bundle of joy arrived 8 weeks early. His name is Joshua and he is doing great. He will be in the hospital until his due date probably. Kim is a super Mom and woman of faith, and seeing her handle this is amazing and encouraging! Speaking of Kim, here are the pages I made a while back for her CJ. I loved the theme, "Queen for a Day"
And I am finishing up the last few Deck of Me Cards... yes, I know I am terribly behind, but I only have a few more to go.I have gotten behind whilst caring for the fat dog. Yeah, blaming a baby is pretty low, but hey, if you really read the card below that is for the prompt "self realization" you will know I am pretty low at times. LOL) If they had pretty backs other than the simple written prompt, I have included them. :) (click to enlarge)
