We may need to file for bankruptcy

OK, so not really, and I know it's not even funny to joke about those things, but I may need to get a second job (or 4th, depending on how you look at my employment) to pay for these lost teeth! Thornley's bottom tooth has been wiggly for a few days now and this morning it came out...

While Thornley was rinsing his mouth out, Jack announced that his tooth was loose, which he always does after Thornley looses a tooth and I say, "Oh, yes, look at that". But the thing is, today it really WAS loose; both of them, on the bottom. So this afternoon after much wiggling I yanked it out. My little Jackers - he's not even FIVE and has lost his first tooth. The one next to it is super wiggly too, and I'm sure if he'd let me in there again I could yank that one out too. Maybe tomorrow.

Hopefully this means both the boys will go to bed early so the tooth fairy can come!

Law Abiding Citizens

I was cleaning out the car today, something I usually do when I stop to get gas and have a big trash can at my disposal, and found this note Thornley had written. It was written with phonetic correctness, but I translated for those of you not hooked on phonics...

Law of the House:
1. No pushing
2. No helping Jack
3. No saying blah, blah, blah
4. Help me!
5. No making up names for dogs
6. No hitting me
7. No playing stupid games
8. No eating boogers

Better go post these to the front door.

I'd Like to thank BSD

I woke up early today to get some stuff done before heading to work, and found it snowed last night. I didn't think it looked like a lot of snow; we've certainly had more, and I think we've even had school when we've had this amount or more. So I really didn't think anything of it, was more intent on finding my craft and coloring sheets for the week. I check my email and there is a message from Thornley's school that BSD is an hour late start today. An hour late for BSD means no school for Jack and no work for me. I let the boys sleep in, and then we headed to church so I could get some work done and Thornley & Jack ran around the gym. So now my Tuesday work was done on Monday and I don't know what to do tomorrow, although I'm sure I'll come up with something!
I hate to admit it, because I will be hated by a few people, but I'm glad school was late, and I had an extra day off. I have been busy, busy lately so it was nice to have an extra day and get some stuff done around the house.
And more good news, we now have Direct TV, so I will be able to watch The Bachelor tonight!! I'm saving my big pile of laundry to fold while I tune in!!
