Surprise! Someone is
growing up quickly and it's making me a wee bit sad. Yes, it is my birthday today, but no it's not me. Well, not growing up at least.
I should thank everyone first for the birthday wishes. I ended up having a very quiet day at home, minus the incessant banging in the front hall (the former rock garden in our living room is being replaced by a tiled in area and will be a mini-study of sorts). I was able to get in a run, take a 2 hour nap, and shower before the kids came home from school, so a fabulous day right there.
Peter decided we should have a dinner out, so we stopped at Ola Verde. I was even treated to dessert on the house by the owner, Carla. My dragonfruit cheesecake arrived complete with a glowing candle and was, as is all food at Ola Verde, simply delectable.
We went straight home after dinner as Peter had something *terribly urgent* to do. I was carted off to the family room with Nick where he made several excuses as to why we should just stay there for a few minutes. Not long after that, I was called into the dining room and surprised by cake and presents!
By far, though, the biggest surprise of the evening?
It had been loose for a few days (he was a bit, uh, perturbed when he first noticed) and he spent quite a few minutes really wiggling it tonight. Finally, after much discussion, he decided I could reach in and attempt to gently tug on it (I think the loose-ness was getting to him). Five seconds later, and the tooth was out.
As if it wasn't enough he started Kindergarten this week, now this. Well, it certainly made for a birthday I won't forget and how does one write Tooth Fairy in Spanish?
