On Mondays Lizzie and I go grocery shopping.  She loves to go with me.  Not sure if it's the slice of turkey that the deli ladies always give her or the dum-dum that I often have in my purse for her, maybe both.  On this particular grocery trip she declared a little bit of everything from her wardrobe.  A dress, cowgirl boots, jacket tied around her waist(in case she gets cold), bandanna for a face mask, and her purse full of random stuff.  I'm pretty sure there are a few coupons in that purse in case you need one for cat food or fruit snacks.  A girl's gotta have her priorities on what coupons to clip.

Tooth Fairy Time

Taylor had been waiting for months to loose her first tooth.  Almost a year ago the dentist said that two of her bottom teeth might be loose soon but nothing for months.  Taylor even wrote two letters to the tooth fairy wanting to know when her time would come.  Then she came home from school Friday mentioning that her bottom teeth were sore.  Wiggling teeth grosses me out.  I know I have many years ahead of me of children loosing teeth, but I just can't stand to watch it happen.  Taylor's tooth was so loose this morning that she barely ate breakfast for fear of losing it.  Luckily it fell out before lunch at school so I didn't have a starving kid on my hands.  Props to the school nurse for having fun little treasure boxes for when you loose a tooth.  Taylor went to bed tonight with a letter proudly displayed for the tooth fairy and her tooth tucked into her tooth fairy pillow.(I bet the tooth fairy loves that she doesn't have to find that itty bitty tooth under her pillow tonight)  While she dreamed of fairies Chris and I were busy googling the going rate for a tooth.  I heard that our fairy left $2(big money for the first tooth) and a Rainbow Magic Fairy book about the Tooth Fairy.

Here's our girl with her new smile(and sassy new haircut).

Taylor Tuesday

I usually have sweet photos of my Taylor, but this one made me laugh.  Taylor asked to get her hair cut and I think she got a case of the sillies with this sassy new hairdo.  She walked around all day flipping her hair and asking if I thought it was cute.

Of course it's cute, it's on her and it was not done by me.  We all know how I can butcher her hair.

I struggle to decide between the plethora of pictures of Lizzie for you each week.  That crazy kid always has something funny happening.  It helps that I have several hours a day before and after preschool and a few days during the week when it's just the two of us.  I needed a few things from the mall one day and bribed her with Chick-fil-a.  Little did a know that I would get a show with lunch.  After watching her go through a few faces I grabbed my phone and started taking pics.  These all occurred in about 30 seconds.

I took Lizzie to the park last week to feed the ducks and geese.  They practically chased us to get the bread and Lizzie kept telling them to be patient and they would all get some.  Then she turned to me and said "Mommy, if I feed them they will come close enough for me to hunt."  I think she's ready to go hunting with her Daddy!

Taylor Tuesday

Let's pretend it's Tuesday for a few minutes so I can be on time for this.  My laptop and I are not getting along very well right now, so I am going to try to get this done before it decides not to play nice anymore.  Taylor started 1st grade last week.  How did that happen?  How did my baby girl start changing into this beautiful young lady?  I can see such a difference between last year and this year.  She has a bit more confidence walking the hallways at school and such a different view on learning now that she can read.  Last night she told us that her favorite way to study science is to read about it.  She loves her teacher and enjoys going to school.  I can't wait to see how this year goes and how our girl does.  I promise to try and keep up with my Taylor Tuesdays so you can follow along too.
