Ch-ch-ch-Changes!

Since we've been talking about da Boo quite a bit around here, let's continue, shall we? She's had a pretty exciting time lately.

At her last eye doctor appointment, she got a new prescription. Also, she needed new frames (the previous ones she had for two years and they were starting to dig into the sides of her head). We browsed for a bit but just couldn't find a pair that we both liked. Then we saw these:


Pink, sparkles, and bows. AND the case looks like a purse. Perfect.

June 24th, Boo lost her first tooth.


Actually, she didn't lose it. Her father pulled it out using needlenose pliers. Fortunately, he waited until I left for a hair appointment. Unfortunately, I came back sooner than expected. The tooth had been loose for weeks but the adult tooth was growing in behind it, not knocking it out. It was either the Man or the dentist who had to do it. Then she wanted to hide the tooth so the Tooth Fairy wouldn't take it before she had a chance to show it to her very best friend. The following night, she got four quarters from the Tooth Fairy. Tooth Fairies apparently don't carry dollars.

Then? Boo got a haircut.


She's been begging for months to get a short haircut. I said she could during the summer...then kept putting it off until her bangs were so long that she couldn't see through her hair. I'm not gonna lie; it was a little heartbreaking to watch those beautiful locks fall to the floor.

My toothless, hairless, sparkly Boo.

What does the Tooth Fairy leave at your house?

The tooth fairy usually forgets a couple of times before she finally brings anything. She's a little bit forgetful.
When she does finally show up she brings a dollar for front teeth, and two for molars. She sometimes throws in a little extra if the tooth has to be extracted by the dentist....for pain and suffering.

love her glasses and haircut:)

The tooth fairy brought $1 for the first tooth, 2$ for the second tooth.....and that's all we've lost so far but I am sure you see a pattern:)

Waaahhh, she looks so grownup in her new glasses and haircut. I must admit though, her haircut really rocks, she looks so beautiful.

Wow! A whole new Boo! Cute!

I order my glasses online. super easy and cheap! Really, very cheap. Try it. I've never paid more than $45 including shipping.

The tooth fairy paid my kids 4 quarters per tooth, or 25 cents for a piece of tooth. I'll blog about that someday.

4 Quarters? That old tooth fairy is getting generous..she used to only leave me 2. She hasn't been to visit my kids yet...

She looks so grown up! We did a hair cut over the weekend but BG is still young enough that I choose. So it was just a trim.

Her hair cut and glasses are so cute. I think the tooth fairy brings a few quarters at our house. It was so fun visiting with you!
