Around 2 am last night Tyler wandered into my room in order to drop off his front tooth that finally came out after hanging menacingly from the middle of his mouth for weeks. The other front tooth is not far behind, it is so loose that it sort of snaggles onto his lower lip when he smiles.
Today I discovered that you can buy boys’ dress shirts and ties at the Burlington Coat Factory for 5 to 10 bucks for the two together, already matched, in a package. In preparation for Mark’s graduation ( in 41 days!) I bought the boys each a colorful shirt, tie and dress pants for the big event in May that we have all worked so hard for. It is a formal sit-down dinner for the families and friends of those graduating from the Nurse Anesthesia Program. We will probably bring our awesome babysitter, Sarah, so that she can take the boys home when the ties have been yanked off and Jackson is threatening to climb onto the dessert table – or has already done so, face first into the cheesecake, which is how I picture it!
Below is a short slide show, the visual version of what I have described above. I honestly don’t think I had ever heard the song until I downloaded it today – I just have memories of my mom singing it – probably to my dad. Enjoy!
