Lots going on so I thought I would just combine it in to one post.
***On Friday SM lost his first tooth. It had been loose for a few days but on Friday he attempted to eat an apple and it did the trick. He dad ended up having to pull it out as the apple caused it to come almost completely loose. I wanted nothing to do with the whole situation and almost passed out just visualizing the loose tooth in my head (I am very weak when it comes to blood). That night we put it under his pillow and in the morning he found $5 in its place. Of course he was thrilled to find $5 and I quickly explained to him that the tooth fairy probably left that much because it was his first tooth. That he would probably find a few quarters next time.
***So last week I blogged about my recipe getting written up in the local paper. Well today I received an email from my blogging friend Mimi saying that she took my recipe and made some cookies of her own! You can read what she thought of them here, on her blog, The Things We Do. She even posted a picture of them!!
*** My baby brother (OK, he’s not really a baby, he’s 25) called and is coming home for Christmas! He lives in Dallas with his girlfriend and we don’t get to see him very often. I can’t wait for him to see the boys and interact with them. I don’t think he knows how much I miss and worry about him.
***Sm and I were talking last week and he mentioned being afraid of getting kicked out of school for being bad. When I tried to find out what he was talking about he informed me that if you get a stick pulled (a warning for talking, not paying attention, etc.) that they just kick you out of school and that it had happened to a little boy in the class next to his. I of course emailed his teacher to let him know what was going on in his head (he is just in Kindergarten after all) and she informed me that a little boy had been removed from the classroom next door. She couldn’t go into details but said that he had severely disrupted the classroom. She assured me that she would talk with SM and reassure him that he would not be getting kicked out of school.
***I’ve started a review blog – Mommy Bits Reviews (original, right?) for all the review posts that I write. I decided to move them so that they’d be easier for people to find. Initially I just transferred over all the reviews I have done to-date, without the comments. I’ve got two products I’m testing/reading right now so more reviews to be posted soon. I hope you guys will check it out. It’s not that fancy but I do have a great blog roll started of other mom bloggers who do reviews. If you, or someone you knows, does reviews, let me know and I’ll add their site to the list.
