Lost tooth

John lost his other front tooth. Needless to say my older kids are singing a famous Christmas song about him. What do you think his apples will look like now?

Other things lost this week include one female hamster. Yet to be found. I am a little freaked out every time I pick up a load of laundry from the floor. Where could she be hiding? No sign of her anywhere. Perhaps she has fled the property due to my inability to really love her. I wonder how long before the other one leaves.

Kid Quote

As relayed to me by my father, who heard the whole thing go down, when my John threw a bucket off the pier into the murky river:

Daddy: John, you know you are not supposed to do that, now jump in and go get it.

John, age 5: No, I can't Daddy, I can't, I am scary, I am scary!! (this is actually what he says when he means scared)

Daddy: You threw it in, you go get it. There is nothing to be afraid of.

John: I scary Daddy! I scary of the jellyfish!

Enter Daniel, age 4: He's not scared of the jellyfish. He's scared of the sharks.
