Adventures at Chez Cannady

On Friday J.T. spent the night with Ma Ma and Pa Pa (Rob's parents) and his wiggly, wobbly, hanging-by-a-thread tooth fell out. He lost it. Rob's mother wrote a note for the tooth fairy explaining the situation and asking that she be very, very generous. Then she vacuumed with her Rainbow, strained the contents of the water bowl and located the lost tooth. She is more dedicated than I to the cause of the lost tooth. I told him the tooth fairy would know where to find a lost tooth even if we didn't have it. Is it me or is parenting about 75 percent lying? She was indeed generous and left the boy $5 (beats the 25 cents I always got).

Last night Abby said: "If I have to tell you one more time...." I said: "What? What happens if you tell us one more time?" Abby: "Don't say that bad word." Me: "What bad word?" Abby: "Happen."

And then she gets into our bed, settles between us and says: "You're sqooshing me!" Wouldn't that be a good reason to get in your bed darling? Of course not! And I end up with a face full of 3 year old foot by the time she does doze off.

A few days before, she was walking, er, tottering down the hall, pants around her ankles yelling: "I can't take it anymore. I just. can't. take it anymore!"

Yes, wearing underpants always has that effect on me too...

Hmmmph! That Tooth Fairy is playing favorites.

She remembers JT's tooth first go.

I would put parenting at even higher than 75% lying.

Not to mention bribery.

Poor Abby. Such a hard life she has.

Speaking of teeth. I just have to take a photo of Padawan Learner's disgusting double tooth situation. His new tooth has almost fully grown but his old tooth is hardly even wobbly. Now, where is that pair of pliers?...

I agree with Crafty - the US tooth fairy is obviously waaaay more efficient than our one.

She makes me smile, she seems older than her 3 years.

Beds just don't seem big enough once a child gets in there, doesn't matter how big the bed actually is.

There's never a dull moment at your place.

In reference to a previous post, Philip wants to know if ignoring itchy nuts is considered torture under the Geneva convention. (although he is definitly not volunteering to scratch them)
