It's been a few days

My last post was about Sean's loose tooth, right? Well, it's not loose anymore, it's gone! We were at the grocery store on Sunday afternoon, after a delish brunch at a breakfast place near our place called Turquoise. At some point Sean, who was walking ahead of me, turned around with shock on his face and an outstretched hand. There was the tooth! As I said in my previous post, I didn't want to give him money because it doesn't mean anything to him. Yes, he has to learn about the value of money, but I can teach him that with the money he gets on Christmas or his birthday. I wanted something fun from the tooth fairy, not a teaching tool! I was going to get him a Peek-a-Pooh or some other trinket, but he ended up getting a Transformer, Patrol Bumblebee to be exact. I didn't want to give him a big gift like that at first, because I don't want him to expect a big toy every time he loses a tooth. But we got a bunch of Transformers at Toys R Us since they are half-price and Sean's birthday will be here before we know it, so it was just easier to do that. He was so thrilled this morning when he discovered what the tooth fairy had left him! He has ugly-winter-hat-hair on these pics, but he's so cute, you wont notice! ;P



In other awesome news, I registered Sean for kindergarden this morning! Time goes by so fast! I really, really, really hope he can go to the school that is only a 5-minute walking distance from our house. You'd think it would be a given, but it's not. There's a little girl who lives a few houses down from us and she didn't get a spot in this year: and she had *already* done a whole year there last year!!!!!!!!!

I also filled a request for Sean to be evaluated to see if he'll need some extra help with the french language. As you know, he understands french perfectly, but doesn't speak it. We'll see. Here he is in front of the school he will (hopefully!) be attending!

OK - so do you put the transformer under the pillow?? LOL!! I always get a kick out of how excited my kids get when they loose a tooth.
