JT has had a "wiggly tooth" for a looooong time now. And a few days ago, it was literally ripped out while he tried to open his sports bottle with his mouth. He came running up the stairs yelling that he lost his tooth and had blood dripping everywhere and you could tell he didn't know whether to be excited or scared or cry. So he pretty much did all three while his little hand was shaking uncontrollably while holding that precious tooth. Fast forward a few hours and he drew this picture of the tooth fairy coming into his bedroom. He had been waiting for this moment for a while now and the day was finally here. He even asked me, "this isn't a dream right mom? This is for real right?". Sweet boy:) So of course the tooth fairy had to wait until almost midnight to visit him because he was just too excited and couldn't settle down to actually, you know, go to sleep.
Guess all that waiting paid off! That money was burning a hole in his pocket so we went to Target and he bought a little box of legos that entertained him for the rest of the day.
On a completely different note, we found an awesome park this week. Any park where you can take your shoes off and play in a stream is okay in my book, especially on a day as hot as yesterday. I wanted to blog something about a "bubbling brook" or something to that effect (I mean, how neat does that sound? bubbling brook) but I'm obviously not a very eloquent writer so this will have to suffice.
You have to admit it looks like a lot of fun. So much in fact that Finley got brave and decided to join in the fun. I'm actually pretty proud of myself because I know that balancing in that water with all of that sensory input, without a melt down, has got to be some kind of therapy record. Yeah!
This swing was the perfect way to wind down before getting in the car for the long drive home. I wish we had one for our backyard;)
Finley's face? Pure joy.
JT got his fill of the swing too. We will definitely be visiting this park again in the future.
