"Anna, you know I can't sleep in here with you next week. Santa might miss you on his kid radar if I'm in the bed. Maybe tonight would be a good night to practice."
"I'll practice on Christmas Eve."
"He must've reneckanized me from school."
"It's recognized, sweetie. Not reneckanized."
A week later. "The kid reneckanized Mrs F but she didn't reneckanize him."
Rich and I took away the markers to the white board one Saturday due to inappropriate use. Anna wrote this on a piece of paper - "My mom and dad are men."
"I'm a sugartarian. That means I don't eat sugar."
Yeah, I'd like to see that.
Up until last night, the girls not only had (well, they still do) all of their baby teeth but there was no indication that anyone was going to lose any of those baby teeth anytime in the near future. Rich is usually in charge of teeth activities, except flossing, that's mine, but last night, he was at a board meeting so the entire duty was with me. As I was making one last round with the toothbrush through Allie's mouth, I spotted something behind her bottom front teeth. I thought it was a piece of food because last week, she had complained that a piece of apple had been stuck between her teeth.
Nope, it wasn't food - it's a new tooth. Coming in behind her baby teeth. The tooth in front of it is loose but it has a way to go before it comes out. She was surprised, excited and nervous all at the same time. The girls are the only ones in the classrooms who haven't lost any baby teeth and I know it's been bothering them a bit. Emily was really upset because she wants to lose a tooth too. I told her that all of their teeth came in at the same time. Give it a week or two and she'll probably have a loose tooth too.
The girls have a dentist appointment in a few weeks. I'm thinking I should print out that picture and hang it up at work to remind myself why I work.
