The Tooth Fairy - Part 2

Lemon Drop lost tooth #2 yesterday, and we managed to pull this one out and not eat it. She was so excited last night to sleep with her tooth under her pillow and couldn't wait to see what she would leave her in the morning. 

It turns out the Tooth Fairy left her 2 Sacagawea gold dollar coins. I understand they are not so easy to find these days since they are no longer made... that Tooth Fairy is good!

The Tooth Fairy

Lemon Drop lost her first tooth this weekend. She has been worried for weeks that it would just pop out and I kept assuring her that this would not be the case. She wouldn't lose a tooth without pulling it out. Well, turns out I was wrong! She was eating a cheeseburger after her soccer game on Saturday and she ate her tooth right along with the cheeseburger.

She was pretty upset that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't visit, but I promised her that we could leave a note and all would be well. Her best buddy told her that the Tooth Fairy takes your teeth and turns them into stars in Fairyland. She drew a great picture of the Tooth Fairy turning her tooth into a star and wrote "Dear Tooth Fairy, I accidentally ate my tooth". It seems that did the trick because the Tooth Fairy did pay her a visit. Unfortunately I was not able to get a good picture of her letter. 

Tooth #2 is loose now, so we are going to try to get it out without eating it this time!

Things I Love

It is a little out of my current price range, but I love this new Coach bag. A girl can dream, can't she?

Teacher Gifts

I need to buy six teacher gifts this year for my daughters' preschool and Mother's Day Out teachers/aides. I normally have an idea by now, but I am at a total loss this year. Does anyone have a favorite teacher gift you like to give?

My mother was a teacher for over 30 years, so I have seen some scary gifts (a half used bar of soap one year) and I think it makes me a little more paranoid than most when picking out gifts. I know that you can only use so many apple coffee cups!

Disney Moms Panel

Lemon Drop and Mickey Mouse - WDW January 2005

I LOVE Disney World. I am not sure it is normal or healthy for someone my age, but I would go again tomorrow. I love planning and planning before a trip. Making dinner reservations, changing the reservations, scheduling everything down to the hour and then throwing it all out the window when you realize Mickey and friends just pulled up and Lemon Drop gets to meet Mickey Mouse for the very first time. 

I was excited to learn from Design Mom today that there is a great Disney resource I didn't know about, The Disney Moms Panel. You can be sure I will use it when I decided to obsessively plan a trip again!
