Perpetual Exhaustion
hanging on by a thread

Tuesday, June 24, 2008
Look at me...i'm blogging TWICE in one day!! Yeah here i go months without a single typed word and then BAM here i am going at it twice in a span of hours. After today's excitement though i just had to share.

After lunch today Melyssa came up to me and wanted me to check her teeth. I've been checking for wigglers off and on for a few months, their big sister lost her first tooth before she turned 5, so i thought the twins might follow suit. Anyhow she asked and i obliged. I stuck my fingers in her mouth and started to give her bottom teeth a wiggle, when OMG i felt movement, lots of movement!! I got excited, Melyssa got excited, and Juleigha wanted to wiggle Melyssa's tooth. So i stuck my fingers back in to show Juleigha which one it was, when OMG the one right next to it wiggled. It wiggled A LOT! Now i'm super excited, Melyssa is super excited and Juleigha wants me to wiggle her teeth. I give Juleigha's bottom teeth a wiggle, but all are firmly planted in the gums, this is not pleasing to Juleigha lol.

After eating an apple and giving it a bit of a wiggle, Melyssa lost her very first tooth.

When Daddy came home a few hours later, she wanted her other tooth to come out. So Daddy reached in, gave it a bit of a tug and out popped her second tooth.

I'm thrilled for her, and I love her gappy tooth smile, but man does it feel like a kick in the chops all at the same time. My kids are growing up...

Tonight we put her two teeth in her special tooth fairy pillow. In the morning she'll wake up to find the tooth fairy came and left her a load of cash. I can't wait to capture her smile when she sees her teeth gone from the pillow and in its place 5 shiney $1 coins.

I'm expecting Juleigha and Lucas to start trying to pull their teeth out shortly after seeing Melyssa's haul lol.

Well we've spent the past few days giving daynah a new room. Actually we've probably spent the past few weeks on the new room, but those were just spent ordering her a new bed, buying some new furniture and shelves and pictures. This past Saturday Peter spent the whole day painting her room. By 1030 that night he had gotten two coats of paint on it and just needed to do some touchups on sunday morning. By Sunday night we moved all her furniture back into her room, but left everything off and away from the walls. Last night we decorated, my favorite part. I love her room right now, its a room for a girl who is growing up to be a young lady, even though her momma wants to keep her little forever. She will be 8 this September, and as she decreed at the start of this makeover, she "hates" princesses. Seeing Peter paint over her purple and blue walls with the castles and crowns and disney princesses on them was hard to watch...but seeing her smile last night when we revealed her decorated room to her was so worth it. Her new bed isn't in the room yet, its not slated to be delivered until July 3rd. This will be her first bed all her own. She's been sleeping on Peter's childhood bed. In a few weeks she'll have a beautiful fullsized bed all her own.

Anyhow here's some pictures to share, because i can't help but look in her room everytime i walk past lol.
