When the Tooth Fairy Stops By…

There was some big stuff happening at our house this week.
Lilly lost her first tooth! We didn’t even know it was loose. I found out when I picked her up from preschool and the next day it fell out while she was there. So exciting. I thought this happened later but apparently, according to Lilly’s dentist, children who teeth early get their adult teeth early as well. Fascinating.
Well, this of course meant a certain someone would be paying us a visit. Oh, we were so excited. Since we were unprepared for this momentous event, Lilly helped me stitch together a little satchel to hold the tooth and put under the pillow. Nothing fancy or perfect but she loved picking out the fabric from my scraps and watching me use the machine to sew away.

When Lilly woke up in the morning the Tooth Fairy had left a personal note with a dollar bill rolled up inside and a gold dollar as well. The note got the best reaction:

Dear Lilly,
Thanks for the tooth. I’ll be back for more.

The tooth next to the one she just lost is loose as well. Looks like it will be a busy few weeks.
Has the tooth fairy come to your house yet? Do you have a special bag or pillow that your little one uses for their tooth? Do tell. I love hearing everyones different ideas.

Pasta Facial

Pasta Facial
Sometimes mommy is really busy and can’t cook us a fancy dinner like cereal. So, she boils up some water and jarred sauce and makes us pasta. It is so delicious. Oh, and great for the skin.

Winter Love

Winter is finally here in New England. I don’t say it’s official until it’s under 15 degrees – it hit 9 the other day – so we’re good.

I love this Kate Spade winter coat. I think I need to search around for a nice colorful coat. My puffy black jacket keeps me toasty warm, and makes me feel like a rapper circa 1993, but this color is just so happy.
We had a very light dusting of snow last night. Lilly was disappointed there was not more. I’m thinking this weekend we will make some snowflakes for the house. Is it too dorky to make these awesome Star Wars ones?
After that I will cuddle up with some yummy tea made from this v.v. cool robot infuser. Delish.
What are your plans to stay cuddly warm this weekend. Whatever they are – have a great one!
