I wonder how some people sleep at night.

If you are a Christian then be careful watching this. You would not want your kids to see this side of your all knowing all loving all merciful God...

Riley FINALLY lost her first tooth

I realize I've been horrible with these updates but I absolutely had to write this one. Riley has been patiently waiting for months to get a visit from the tooth fairy. It finally happened today: She lost her first tooth.

Sidney is gowen to the dentist suomdoy win hr Mommy tels hr to

They're only 6 so it's not like this is some text message jargon. But this is what you get when you try to write the sentence "Sidney is going to the dentist someday when her Mommy tells her to." The teacher tells them it is good to try to sound out words and guess on the spelling. I don't know. I don't think we have a southern drawl so I don't know about "gowen"!

By the way, Sidney is going soon to get her 6 year molars sealed. Poor Riley hasn't lost any teeth yet nor has she gotten these new ones yet.

Not to be out done

There's absolutely no competition going on in this household. ha ha. Riley's poem was from when we were waiting to leave for the dr appt to get the antibiotic for her ear infection. I took her to school after the appt, getting script filled, and grabbing a bite to eat. Then she went to hippo therapy in the evening. Sidney is so lucky to get to ride a horse also (Thanks to Aunt Rachel and family). We spent the whole time after Sidney's riding lesson and waiting for Shelly and Riley to get home by writing the "letter" below. I knew that someone may say something about Riley's poem and Sidney hear about it and wonder why she didn't get something on the blog. So, these are just two little snapshots in time before they turn 6.

Here is Sidney's letter:
dear mommy,

i love you. i like horses. i like everything in the whole wide world. i love my whole family. i am losing a tooth.


Riley's Poem

I couldn't understand whether Riley made this up or heard it from somewhere...

Sing sing what shall I sing.
Do do what shall I do.
The cat's run away with the pudding too.

At first she had as the last word a word that rhymed with 'sing' and then she said the whole poem again (that's more impressive than the poem itself) and changed it to 'too'.

What an argument

After a late night last night, the girls were a little grumpy today. At one point Sidney was upset about.....her clothes, the plans for the day, the universe aligning - you name it - it could've been anything. But the line that got me was she said "Riley is trying to be prettier than me because she is smiling." It was incredibly hard not to burst out laughing and calmly say "Yes, when you smile, you do look prettier." I didn't realize they were having a contest. I think Riley was just grinning mischievously because Sidney was upset. Maybe a good night rest will make tomorrow smoother or maybe they'll just have more energy to argue!
